Well, if you're running any kind of home replacement (Pandahome, FreshFace, etc.), I'd recommend uninstalling and running it stock.
It's weird because I can't explain it, but I used to have some pretty significant lags (for example, it would take my contacts list about 28 seconds to load for awhile), but they pretty much all went away on their own; almost as if the phone just needed a break-in period. lol It still slows down a bit on occasion, depending on what app is closing, but overall it's usually pretty responsive.
But I can promise you that a home replacement, if you have one, will be a problem.
Thanks! Lots of good info there. I really don't want to get an IPhone and I'm not planning to dump the MT anytime soon. So I'm gonna do what I can to tweak the MT and get the most out of it.
As for my daughter, my son in low got her an IPhone for Christmas. It's what she wanted and her hubby got it for her
Cool, but it'll be about 8 months before I switch phone.
I'm running pretty much stock. Just added a couple of widgets.
have you tried any resets? hard or factory? and cache cleaning?
No, I have not. Do you have a link for instructions?

Well then that's ok about your daughters phone, just trying to help you save some money. But at least you didn't have to pay for her phone
As far as speeding it up, I would be sure to keep in check your widgets - how often they update can run down your battery power and also make your phone be slower because of the need for the phone to keep track of everything. This also applies to many apps that need to update with the internet often or make certain checks on your phone, apps that need to constantly be running, or frequently running will slow down your phone.
Something that will certainly speed it up is rooting it, if you want to do that I would. All rooting means is that it opens up the capabilities you can have with your phone, almost like taking the governor of your car .... in a safe way. It really does speed it up, something you can do is free up video ram and implement it into your action ram. It really helps a lot. If you want help with rooting, either check out that forum, or PM me and I'll help all that I can! Good luck, and stick with it!
What are you talking about Big? He was all over it up top, the best job I've ever seen in this forum! Good job Tex'!
lmao, sorry didnt see that.. just trying to help people learn about the new feature..
Ha, I'm just kidding, it is a nice feature, and hopefully it catches on.
let us know how it worked for you texas!
That's how we do it in texas even though you're north of I 45 lol.
I would suggest looking into a task killer as well so you can reclaim some of the RAM back. Or you could strong arm customer service and see if they could do an exchange with the newer version. It is a well known fact that if you threaten to you move your business, you can usually get something accomplished. Of course pending your loyalty status.
I have heard that installing one of the many app killers is actually pointless. Granted i have home++ with one installed i do feel a difference. Also if you have astro it has an app killer pre installed under tools. Now that is an app killer if any. Basically shuts my phone down for about 30sec to a minute before i can use it again. However its FRESH! LOL
I have tried that does not seam to work especially when there is plenty of life left in your contract. I have been with tmo for about 10 years and still cant get away with too much.
