    Hey all,
    As the title states, I havent really done anything weird and suddenly i find the phone much less responsive than yesterday. Apps open much slower. there is a pause when i hit the home screen hard button. Anyone have any ideas why? I rebooted and it didnt help.

    Thanks for ideas and suggestions.

    Have you installed any new apps? Or updates to existing apps?

    Honestly nothings been changed in about a week. ihave kg6 2.3.4.

    I looked in app manager and saw one update going on so i force stopped it. still lags.

    I installed my fitnesspal day before but it isnt running.

    I used a blackberry charger last night for 20 mins. it was 750 mA instead of our 1A. Used stock charger overnight.

    well a factory reset would put ur phone back into the state it was when u bought it. u could do that if u have a complete backup, easily done if ur rooted. it sounds quite strange, ur problem. is it still the same?

    No improvement boys. if anything the phone feels laggier.
    Is there a how to somewhere that i can follow for backing up and hard resetting my phone?

    I wonder what has caused this. :(

    My phone came sim locked. will i have to unlock it again?

    Thanks friends.

    u can follow this guide to rooting ur phone.. after ur done, install Titanium Backup from the market. it makes a complete backup of ur phone, including homescreen layout.. it really works well, i restored after a wipe and it was exactly the same as before.. even game levels :D

    after that, just boot into recovery and do a wipe/factory reset..
    then root, install titanium again, and restore :)

    The lag is almost unbearable now. its like everything is loading from an old abused hdd. i performed a factory reset and there was no improvement. Anyone have any other ideas? would a reflash help? different ROM?

    So maybe it's because of kg6 so I'm going to update to kg5 and see if it helps any. Will post results.

    yeah, that would also include doing a factory reset.. if that doesn fix it, i think u'd better start trying for a replacement
