    My driod suddenly sucks.

    Force closes 3-4 times a week. Very laggy. not getting calls then getting voicemail. apps don't respond when I touch them. etc.

    Getting worse. Battery pulls don't do anything.

    back up your apps.

    factory reset
    install a few apps at a time to pinpoint what app is giving you heartache

    if that doesn't work take back to Verizon and get a new phone

    What apps do you have installed that didn't come with the Droid? Either one of them is causing these issues, of you have a defective handset.

    I haven't really insatlled anything new in about a month.

    I have:

    Advan. Task Killer
    Calculator
    Finance
    GV
    gstrings - guit tuner
    Missed Call
    Moto torch led
    NFL superfan
    Not call log
    pandora
    Quote pro
    Rehearsal assistant
    Ultimate stopwatch
    Volume Control
    Weatherbug Elite.

    I am curios as to how to backup these apps as I am close to trying a factory reset.

    Or should I just exchange it?

    I have over 60 apps installed and my droid is running in tip top shape....
    download Astro file manager / click tools/ backup assistant / from there it's pretty easy.
    but I have all my apps backed up on my SdCard

    I know that some people have stated in other threads that task killers really don't do THAT much good, and that they can mess things up, but I've used Advanced Task Killer myself for quite a while as well as the task killer built into home++, and haven't had any issues like you're describing. Basically, their case is that Android pauses apps that haven't been used in a while and won't start them back up until you enter them again, so killing them really doesn't save THAT much battery. As far as RAM, I'm not sure how that all plays into that, but I know I used my G1 with Android without a task killer for a long time and didn't really have an issue with either...

    Astro File manager [abailable in the market] will allow you to backup your apps to the SD card. I haven't done it, so I can't help you much with that, but I know that it's a feature.

    It couldn't hurt to try the factory reset. If you do that, I would reinstall each app one at a time [don't just load them all back on] and try them out for a while. As you add another app, if you start experiencing the problem again, you might uninstall that app completely and add the next one back on and continue. In fact, I'd wait a while before reinstalling any of them to make sure it's an app and not an issue with the phone.

    **EDIT: As Flomaster said, "Astro file manager / click tools/ backup assistant"

    OK so I did the backup with Astro. Do I have to specify where they are backed up or does it Backup to the SD card by default. It really didn't give me the specific option to choose a backup destination.

    Then, If I do choose to do a Factory reset, how do I reinstall everything?

    I could have told you to remove advanced task killer before you even said it was installed. That app should be classified as malware.

    i had problems with pix messaging. (minor compared to yours) but other issues i have had with this phone all came back to the Apps I INSTALLED.. 3rd party crap that is not tested well and caused my own phone too suck.. when i did a factory reset. HOLY CRAP was the phone fast and i no longer have any issues at all ! NONE...

    I'd stay away from weatherbug elite and ATK. Just a suggestion, glad you got it up and running well again.
