    Before I did the ICS upgrade my phone was very very sluggish, typing was near impossible and programs just would close out. Once I did the ICS upgrade all was solved and phone was just incredibly fast. Now out of knowhere the phone is sluggish again, doesn't respond to keeys being pressed, trying to text is impossible again as keys dont show tye were pushed and then the lg keyboard crashes. But anytime im on the internet the pages start to flicker or almost pixelate then the internet closes out completely without any error or warning's popping up.

    Any idea on what I can do to fix this?

    Probably just need to wipe your caches. You didn't say if you're stock/custom/rooted/not rooted/ etc.

    You'll have to be a bit more specific so that someone can provide steps to try and fix you up.

    sorry bout that. Spectrum is bone stock, no rooting at all. just apps installed.

    how do i go about clearing the caches? I have dolphin as my browser and i would always get the "clear history/caches" before closing out, then it updated and i dont get that message anymore.

    That's clearing the app's cache. Not the /cache/ partition or dalvik cache.

    Unfortunately, if you're not rooted or running a custom rom or recovery... I don't know of anyway to actually wipe caches without doing a factory reset.

    Maybe someone else can chime in if there's a way.

    anyone able to help me before having to do a factory reset? My phone is acting exactly the way it did prior to the ICS update. Texting/typing are near impossibe as the keyboard always crashes.
