    I've noticed over the past week or so my Eris seems to be getting a little sluggish/touch screen a little slow in responding. I was wondering how can I tell what could be causing this? Are there certain programs that slow the down the phone more than others? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    The first thing I would take a look at is how much free memory you have.

    Settings > Sd card & phone storage > Available Space

    After that, it would be helpful to know what third party apps you have installed and how you are exiting out of those apps.

  4. Mine speeds up when I go to the manage applications area and sort by size then clear browser cache, market, etc.

    Then I check to see if I've got over a few hundred messages saved and clear that down to just the past weeks's messages.

    Then I shut it off and power it back up.

    That causes my Eris to get it's old snap back.

    Every once in a while I do a "spring cleaning" session. I clear all cache that I can find, delete all texts, upload photos to my comp and delete any I don't have to have on my phone and go through my apps and delete any I haven't used in the past week or two (it only takes a minute or less to download again!). I then reboot, let it sit for 5 minutes to get all sorted out and my baby is back to normal!
