    Unhappy Phone is craaawwling!

    So much so that it literally (and I timed it) took just under 5 minutes to get into Handsent and open a conversation, and on top of that force closes galore. This actually began shortly after I copied all of my files over to a new 32GB CL4 SD card over the weekend. Having 20GB of new music with me is great but kind of useless if I need to pull the battery when I'm done listening lest I spend 10 minutes tapping the stop button only to have it start/stop/pause on me ad nauseum.

    I have my suspicions that some of my apps that were installed on the SD card may have been corrupted in the transition so I am planning on checking that out and if that comes up with no solutions then I will download the latest nightly after doing a data wipe.

    Do I have all my bases covered? Anyone had this same problem?

    Thanks in advance guys.

    I have heard people having huge issues with 32gb cards. So wouldn't rule that out also. Try cleaning your phone with history cleaner, get rid of excessive pictures, excessive music and/or notifications and ringers, and texts and report back. Format your 32 gb as stated earlier. If all else fails go back to your 16 gb card.

    I got my 32gb card from VZW when they were on sale, it's been in 3 phones now with zero issues. Never been formatted since I originally did it.

    Three different phones? Were they different phone manufacturers? That could cause issues. I would definitely recommend the format now.

    CM7 on my OG Droid does this regularly... using the memory optimizer script, wiping dalvik cache and the cache partition helps it out for a bit, but two weeks down the road it's back to the same old crawl. I'm gonna try to see if I can handle stock when the SG2 finally gets here, romming definitely gives you that (large) spoonfull of <moderated> with the barrel of sweet customization honey...

    One thing that helped me was turning off compcache. It just sucks down CPU cycles for me after a week or so of regular use.

    Instead of compcache, try Swapper2

    I'm just going to opt for writing down what apps I've got and any other important info and doing a full wipe of the phone and starting from scratch then once I've gotten everything back up and running I'll check out the SD and see if cleaning things up in that department helps. Just needed a day I could sit back and do all this undisturbed lol.

    Thanks for the replies and volando thats always been my problem, I keep Cachemate's widget on my desktop and routinely clean up my cache so I know its not that, that's causing my particular problem and thanks a ton for reminding me about the memory optimizer script I was going to check that out a while ago but it slipped my mind.

    Another thing I checked my Compcache settings and it was on the highest setting (26%). Thought I had it disabled as I am already running Swapper2 in the background.
