Two separate issues. First, over the past week I've noticed my phone acts like a crashing computer - all the programs become slow or unresponsive. It happens at the end of every day and either I have to turn the phone off or pull the battery. I installed a countdown app and an alternate time zone clock that were on my home page. I removed the widgets for a day and it still slowed down so I uninstalled both. Do apps cause issues like this?
Also since the last update I've lost all of my SMS messages a few times. What is up with that? I was using the stock app but switched to Handcent tonight after it happened again.
One more question: when you download apps from the market how do you know that the code isn't doing something malicious that you wouldn't want it to? Some of these apps have a lot of access...
