    Droid slowing down

    My Droid has been running very slowly lately....I want to fix it!

    I'm not rooted or anything....so the only thing I can think is I have a lot of texts piled up...probably close to 5,000....is that what's slowing it down?

    I have quite a few apps, but not THAT many, the amount of texts I have is my only thought.


    Any ideas?

    Try clearing up cache and killing apps as well as cleaning out your texts but if you want some serious speed i would consider rooting and overclocking which is the best thing i personally think i ever did involving my phone

    Oh, I'm very tempted....Just nervous I'm going to mess things up.


    ...plus, I'm giving the Droid to my wife when the Droid X comes out


    Thanks for the advice. I didn't want to delete my texts, but I guess I will just to see if it helps or not.

    Happened to me aswell. I got tired of it so I decided to do a factory reset. I lost all my apps, including music junk. I'm still hurting about that. After the reset, Droid was back to its quick self again.

    Just deleted all my texts....things seemed to be going noticeably faster for a minute, then all of my widgets said "Error inflating widget".

    They are back now, but I was rolling my eyes for a minute there....if it's not one thing it's another....

    How many widgets are you using? This might be your problem.


    I have no widgets and my phone is amazingly fast.

    I have been having the same issues. The speed has been noticeably slower over the last two months. I want a Droid X!

    Not many, I think...

    Beautiful Widgets, the power strip one, A vibrate/silence one, and Pandora.

    That doesn't sound like the source, did you install any apps lately?

    One other thing as well, how often do you reboot your phone? I found that rebooting mine every 2-3 days helps to mitigate slow downs.
