Data Monitor App very, very sluggish after change to 'limit'
Hi all, please be gentle- first post.
I've recently upgraded my samsung galaxy s2 (on t-mobile) to ics (via kies). It has been running sweet for the last week or so but today i was playing around with the "data monitor" app, and somehow managed to set the upper limit to 2048gb...
Since this, the data monitor app runs extremely slowly, eg, from selecting data monitor app via settings, it can take upwards of 2mins to draw just the graph. The rest of the OS appears to be running smooth but 'settings' app is equally sluggish but once 'unresponsive app' is force-close, then settings springs back into life.
i tried to set the upper limit to 2048mb via the set limit screen, but then i must have tapped into the 'limit' edit box and the 'keyboard input' appeared and before i knew, the value in box was 2047xxxxMb (where xxxx are other numbers i don't have to hand).
the graph widget has the upper limit set to 2097152 which, interestingly is 0x200000, a coincidence? (yes, i'm a s/w engineer!)
I've tried changing the upper limit via the interface buts it's painfully slow and i haven't managed to successfully do this. I'm hoping that someone out there knows if the data monitor app stores it's settings in a file somewhere on the Android's file system that i can change behind the scenes. Or does someone else have an alternative solution/cause to this issue.
