My Droid has been running very slow lately

    It started a couple weeks or so ago. It just randomly started running slow no matter what app I was using or even if just punching in a number to make a call. I didn't install a new app & this just started or anything like that.

    Anyone else with this issue? Solutions?

    In the last couple weeks I was going app wild, downloading a couple apps every few days. A few days ago, I notice a lot of F/C and random reboots happening. I backed up my apps and data and did a hard reset. Reinstalled the majority of apps and data and now a couple nights ago I got the OTA update. My Incredible is purring like a kitten and no more random reboots, lag, sluggish responses, and F/C. Just like I have a new phone again.

    There's more than a dozen android phones out there. Unless if we know which phone you are using, there's nothing we can do to help you out.

    Yeah like snapper said. We don't know what you're using...

    I can blindly suggest one thing though. Do a factory reset, and battery pull.

    1. Back up you're important content.
    2. Perform a factory reset.
    3. Pull the battery
    4. Start over

    I was having problems with my evo. Not with being slow but destroying batteries in no time. This my battery problem went away, and the phone was even faster than when I bought it with 2.1 installed.

    It's a regular Droid not an X etc. It's been updated w/the Verizon update & I have not downloaded new apps or anything.

    Are you using an automatic task killer?

    Have you tried pulling the battery for 1 minute and then restarting the phone?

    Been using advanced task killer since the day I got it.

    Yes, I tried restarting.

    Do you think that is the problem? I've had the task killer since day 1 & the slowness issue has not been since then.

    It could be a corrupted memory card.

    If you have a spare micro sd card around, put that in your phone to see if the problem goes away. If you don't have a spare card, just take your card out and see if the problem goes away. I had a problem with my memory card that caused battery and heat issues, with the addition of severe lagging, freezing, and unresponsive screens and softkeys and power button. All the problems went away when another card was put in the phone. I ended up reformatting my original 16gb card.
