    Had a Wildfire for a few days, now, and am getting very frustrated by its slow response and constant freezing.

    I have loaded a couple of apps from the Android Market (MyPhoneExplorer and SqueezeBox Commander), but, apart from that it is fairly standard.

    For instance, if the screen has powered off then I press the power button - up pops the display, showing time. Sometimes, if it tap the screen, it says screen is locked and drag down, but, often it doesn't and I have to power off/on again. When it does appear, it is a total lottery whether it will drag down and unlock - occassionally, it drags half way even!

    It is as if the CPU is going flat out doing something else and can't be bothered to respond to what I am doing.

    I wonder whether this behaviour is normal and I should have spent a bit more for the Desire or have I got a duff one.

    Even better would be if anyone has suggestions for how to improve!

    Not a great start to life with a 'smart' phone :mad:

    This is definitely not normal. Try a factory reset and see if it goes away.

    I'd try rebooting first, Uninstalling apps second, and factory reset third.

    Some feedback....

    I did the Factory Reset (as I'd not got much set up on it!) and it is much better! Straight after the reset, it was perfect. Since then, I've installed a few apps and I get an occasional freeze, but, nothing too bad.

    The only apps I've installed are:
    • MyPhoneExplorer
    • Squeeze Commander
    • BBC Sport
    • BBC News
    • Sky Sport
    • Elixir
    • MySettingsPro
    • Pkt Auctions eBay
    • Official eBay
    • SpeechSynthesis Data Installer
    No App Killer.

    Fingers crossed it will stay stable, now

    Thanks for all the advice!
