    I updated to ICS around August or first my phone worked awesome...after about 2 weeks it started slowing down immensly...text messages are horribly slow. When i open my messages it says refreshing for around 1 minute, then i open my new message and I cant type for around one minute..if i type while it is froze it lags and then all the words i typed are jumbled up...that is another minute of freezing just to erase. When i have a passcode on the phone I hit the area to type and it is so slow i always end up hitting emergency call...when I add music it erases my playlist. It does that no matter how I add music, through files or pantech suite. I did a factory reset and it worked fine for about 2 days and then started the lagging all over again...any suggestions before I just buy a new phone. I would actually like this phone if it would work properly and would rather fix it than spend $400 on a new phone.
    pleaseeeeeeee out of options and dont know what to do:confused:

    Do you have the play market allow auto updates? If you have a bunch of apps loaded and the phone's been asleep for a while, it seems like sometimes it wakes up and wants to check every app for an update. I turned that off and it helped a lot...on my Burst and even the cheap 7" tablet I got. It was so laggy it wasn't worth using and turning off the auto update pretty much fixed it. Also, I am on straight talk so I loaded Titanium backup and removed all the AT&T crap apps and replaced the AT&T contact and dialer apps too. I used Go Dialer and Go Contacts...that helped a lot too since the AT&T contact app has a bunch of crap in it too. I use Taskiller to check to see what's going on and kill useless running tasks.

    My phone works great. I reboot it maybe once every two weeks because it will eventually act crazy. I am very very happy with mine!

    Thanks for the reply :)
    I have always had auto updates disabled because of my data plan. I will check the Titanium backup I have never heard of that. I use my task killer every time I check my phone. As far as rebooting, it reboots itself randomly. I found a new problem today also, it didnt want to charge or stay charged.

    You have to be careful of what you kill or uninstall. In Titanium backup there is an option to freeze an app. That's what I did with all the ATT apps at first, to make sure the phone will work without them. That made a HUGE difference as well as getting rid of the ATT phone contacts and dialing apps. I also replaced the launcher with ADW Launcher...that seemed to help a lot too. Of course, just the other day after I posted how wonderful my phone is, it wonked all up. I had to reboot it going to and coming from work to get bluetooth to synch with my truck. Ever since that day it has worked fine. I will never say my phone is working fine again! lol
