    ICS Update Rendered my Phone Useless

    So I got the update, and now I can't open up handcent, the stock text messager won't load, haven't received any texts I've been sent, phone calls are spotty, battery life is terrible, contacts list barely opens, every menu is slow and some won't even load.. the list goes on. What happened?!

    I did a system cache clear (I think thats what it was) so far. I'm kind of a noob when it comes to this so any and all help will be much appreciated, I need my phone back!!

    That's horrible! Yea id boot into recovery and wipe cache and dalvik as well. Try fixing permissions as well.
    Hope you get it working

    All I can get from the menu is the system cache, no dalvik.

    right. that why i asked if you were rooted. to my knowledge thats the only option you can use when your not rooted. maybe someone else knows of a way. but none the less have you already wiped the system cache then?

    Do a factory data reset... I'd call Verizon tech support first and open a case... It's likely the first thing they'll tell you to do...If it is still acting up after the reset you'll probably have to let Verizon send you a replacement phone...

    Yup system cache is wiped. And I had a feeling FDR was the only option. Do you guys have any idea how I can see my texts? I have about 20 I can't even get to and don't wanna lose them before I can read em!
