    Droid X running horrible...

    For the last few weeks my X has been horrible... terrible lag, battery life horrible, locking up and at times getting physically hot to the touch.. i think flikie wallpaper was part of the problem... once i un installed that the over heating went away..every time i looked at the batt manager it said flikie was using over 60%...
    but.. still horrible lag, locks up... FB app takes forever to load if it does.. Gmail is horrible slow... battery would go dead in less than 4 hours... went today and bought the extended battery... charged it up... lost 30% in 1.5 hours.. now battery manager says Android OS is using 76% also its like my phone will just shut off 3g... i cant get any data to load, the "arrows" on the 3g icon wont move and nothing loads.. ill have to shut down or battery pull.. to get 3g back...

    anyone else having these problems?? ive deleted most all apps... only running beautiful widgets, launcher pro plus and widgets and vlingo widget... any help??????

    Have you considered a factory reset and start completely over?

    Good luck...

    Could be a bad phone - have you talked with VZW tech support for troubleshooting and possibly request a replacement device...as you know, this is not normal performance for an X...

    A bad file/filesystem on your sd card can cause all those problems. If you have a spare sd card, try putting it in your phone. Or, take the sd card out of your phone and see how it runs.

    If the sd card seems to be the culprit, back up your files to your computer, then reformat the sd card in the phone. Move your folders and files back starting with only the essential stuff, then move small batches of folders/files back and test till you have located a bad file, or all the files are back on the card.

    Don't forget to format the card, a Factory Data Reset does nothing to the sd card.
