I'm getting more and more 'forced close' popping up during the day. Sometimes my home screen icons don't appear for a few minutes. What's going wrong????
Has anyone done a factory reset? I know it's kind of a pain in the butt but it really doesn't take long at all to set everything back up again. I did one on my phone and my wifes phone because of the picasa issue and neither phone has had any major issues since.
I manually updated to 2.1 but I had problems with the WiFi not able to keep a connection since I got the phone in December of 09 (even though Linksys router was 2ft from phone). When I manually updated to 2.1 - I couldn't get WiFi to work at all, even though it had an IP address and I could ping the phone from my desktop.
Factory Resetting fixed all that - WiFi works beautifully. I haven't noticed any slowdowns before/after tho.
Most of my Droid friends with slowdown problems have hundreds of apps installed. I think that has to be the cause of a lot of Force Closes and Slowdown problems.
I am not rooted and I did the 2.1 OTA. It started out laggy then after a few app updates the performance of the phone seemed to improve. However, over the last week, the performance has gone down the toliet. I have removed most of my apps, I have done batter pulls and finally did a factory reset and yet my Droid does what it wants. It shuts down, its laggy, I get loud static and screaching when trying to place a call, my screen is not responsive. And it is not just my phone, yesterday, my husbands started doing the same thing and he has no downloaded apps. He is as stock as they come. Overall since the 2.1 update, my Droid has sucked. I am almost ready to go back to my other phone. I am totally disappointed with Motorola and Verizon.
Manually updated mine, I had helix 1 before it and no prob and now its kinda laggy and shows fc's sometimes. Gallery takes a while to load some times, I think I ll do a factory reset.
