Also, I've been trying to clean up my gallery by deleting old pics that have already been uploaded. Any time I try to delete pics it takes forever (Not just a few minutes, I mean like 30 plus minutes until I close the gallery through task manager).
Anyone having these issues?
I am having this very problem. That's my sole reason for getting on here this a.m. to search thought the threads to see if others have had this issue.
I get this "deleted" text that stays on screen after I delete and it just wont go away. When I back out the gallery freezes and the phone lags to point where I just shut it down and start back up.
But this only works for a couple more deletes, then it does it again.
I dont want to have to USB my phone to the computer just to deal with the gallery.
And why now. I updated to 2.2 when I got the phone over a month ago and it has been fine....until now. Why would it just start having these weird software glitches at random. I could see if it screwed up upon update....but mine was just fine after the update.
With Windows on PC, these things happen from time to time and in almost every case for me, a quick restart and things get back to normal.
This phone doesnt really have that. It doesnt seem that the turn off and on action does anything.
So a factory reset is what seems to be the next best thing.
So what will happen to my phone if I do this. You know, apps, contacts, texts, gallery etc.
