    I updated my phone yesterday (which I thought would be a good thing) generally it is a good improvement has far as the apps and settings go, but since the upgrade my phone has been behaving erratically, I'm receiving the same text msg 3 times everything, ok I know it's the end of the world, and I can live with that, just explaining the whole picture, also having trouble answering calls, its like the slide button no longer works, but what I really don't like is how slow my phone is now performing, which it's speed before was one of the things I liked before the update. I know it said it would run slower after the update, but this is bordering ridiculous.
    Is anyone else having the same or similar problems since the update to ice cream sandwich??

    If anything mine seems a tad more responsive. Can't say about Facebook/Twitter etc. as I don't use them on the phone. Streams from Amazon Cloud Player OK. no probs with ZoomFX or HDR apps either.

    My phone lags terribly, it's really becoming useless!
    A factory reset helps for about a week.
    Anyone can share if they did something to improve it??? Will rooting the phone get rid of the issues?

    If you've got a lot of apps, it helps to move them to internal storage.

    Yes if you root you can change a lot of slow and lagging problems you are having on the dalvick try m=y on the build.prop . Works wonders

    Not that I have a clue what you are talking about lol but thanks! I just saw a video where you can root your device without unlocking the boot loader (whatever that means) and you can remove stock apps. If I do this, will my device stop lagging??
