    So my Atrix was running really well two days ago. Nice and smooth. All of the sudden it has become the most frustrating piece of equipment I have ever owned. I had recently changed my live wallpaper to another. Other than that one change nothing else was touched. So my problems are as follows:

    My fingerprint sensor has started asking me to wait for it to initialize. So since I am completely unable to wait I try typing in my key code only to find the screen is now unresponsive. I have to wait for the screen to timeout to type in the key code, but then I lose all connection to my network (ATT). The phone then cycles through GSM, 3G, to HSPA+. After finally getting network connectiong the phone then becomes very slow. Apps like Dolphin Browser, Bubble Pop, etc run slow as well. Or if I'm really lucky my screen freezes while charging or after I unplug it from the charger. I then have to remove the battery and go through start up again. Oh and the cherry on top is something is sucking my battery dry.

    My Wifi and GPS are off. I've closed any apps running in the background. I've scanned it with Lookout. I even deleted unused apps. My phone is not rooted, nor do I care to delve into that.

    Can anyone help? This phone has been a beast and I really enjoy using it.

    1. Dump the new live wallpaper - they eat battery life anyway.
    2. Download a virus protection app to ensure you didn't contract something phishy.
    3. Crash, reset, reboot.
