First of all /scream . . .(imagine a scream of rage). . . OK, now I've had this thing since march and am TOTALLY addicted to what this phone does for me FOR FREE! BUT, just keeping it from locking up is a constant battle with task kille and autostart apps, and YES i have removed everything I can live without that I CAN remove but there are a half dozen apps that CAME on the phone that start RANDOMLY that I have NEVER even opened and don't care to ever use, they just take up my RAM!!!!! JUST as annoying is that this thing has a mind TOTALLY of it's own. When I type and it inserts random whole words, moves my cursor and punctuation, and backspaces in the wrong direction!! Yes, I have ALL of the autocorrect stuff off. It used to still highlight the mispelled words, and I love thatm but the update broke that. My friends all have droids and don't have ANY complaints, 2 of them are Rooted/hacked, and my wife has a $250 Offbrand android tablet with the same processor specs and 2x the RAM with 0matching [sic inserted word] problems ( and this thing was 500!). I SWEAR I'm ready to tell VZW to shove this phone and their contract and just lug that tablet around and find wifi to make all of my calls because I KNOW it would be less of a PITA!! SO, is Verizon just the new AOL and they have FUBARd my operating system on what SHOULD be a great product? HALP!
