    Stock messaging app slows to a crawl.

    Anyone else's stock messaging app slowing down so much that you can't use it? I can restart the phone or clear the app cache, setting and force stop it to make it speed up again. I have to do once every one or two days.

    I bought my DI2 the day it came out and have had no problems with it until a few days ago. You cant touch the icon and it will turn green 5 seconds after the touch. Every selection takes about 30 seconds to complete and loading another 30 seconds or so. The touch aspect of the keyboard works fine except the text has a 5 second delay before being put in the text box.

    That's weird - something else has gotta be causing it... I've had mine almost a month and never experienced any lag like that of any kind. Did you install anything or do anything a few days ago when the problems started?

    Now that you mention it I installed the eset mobile security around the time that it was slowing down, cant remember if the slow down started before or after i installed it.

    Might be worth testing - I saw the lifehacker article about ESET, as comprehensive as that sounds (and beta right?), it wouldn't surprise me if that does something. Sometimes those antivirus (etc) apps can have a real negative effect on performance. Might not be it, but worth checking... If you do uninstall it, make sure you clear data in Messages and reboot before you test any more.

    You can use something like MyBackup Pro to backup your texts before you clear the data.

    I dont need to save the texts, the first thing I did when i experienced the first slow down was to delete all texts, I was thinking that it was trying to load too many. I read that same article which convinced me to install it in the first place. It is in beta which of course could cause problems.

    I can't speak highly enough of Handcent for texting. Much better than the stock. I've had it since my first Droid in late '09.
