    The point is since you are stressing the CPU to go faster you have to let it rest a little bit. Even tho when you set the scaling to on demand the speed increases when needed. So decreasing it will make it less stressful for the cpu to operate .

    Try backing up all your applications and then delete all but the ones you most frequently use. Do you have a lot of widgets? They can eat up all your memory and slow things down substantially if you have too many of them.

    Also, it it slow right after booting or does it get slower when you start using it? Solution there may be as simple as getting an industrial strength task killer such as Fast Reboot (the name of this app is a bit deceptive since it doesn't really reboot the phone, it just kills all the running apps). Running this little jewel several times a day can do wonders for your performance and it only takes a few seconds!

    Running this phone at 2.0, is so unnecessary.

    I may be at the other end of the spectrum on this, but I don't really see the need to go above 1.0/1.2 Ghz. Do you really need 2.0 Ghz to web browse, make a phone call or send a text message? I guess if you play a lot of games with intense graphics then I could see it, but it makes the battery drain faster, and it does stress the phone to run extreme OC and will probably shorten the lifespan of the phone.

    Hey man do your thing. I may not use my phone the way you do. I actually scaled mine down to 806Mhz and have left it there for the last three days and I see very little lag, but like I said, I may not use my phone the way you do.

    Well I have you tried using cachemate? I use it when my phone gets a little slow. clears up all the cache and improves the speed.
