    Exclamation Super slow droid!!! Need help bad!!!

    I need help. I have to original Motorola Droid, and it is super slow! When i say slow i mean, moving from one page to another (not in apps or web, but more like home screen to app list, or from one home page to another) or after sliding the unlock, it takes forever for the icons to load (like 20+ seconds) when switching from contact page to dialer page, etc. It is very annoying, and makes the phone not fun to have!

    It all started around June of 2010 after the first Droid update, and just got worse from there!

    I have tried:
    -Reinstalling the updates
    -Task Killers
    -Anti-virus
    -Restarting
    -Static discharge
    -Erasing apps, and reinstalling them

    Here is the kicker....Verizon just sent me a new droid (or rather a replacement, per warranty) and i am STILL having a problem! I may be an idiot, but i need help!

    My only thought is that my sd card is bad? Is this possible, and if so how do i fix it? Or is it something eles all together.

    I could really use help!!!!

    Are you running 2.2 on it? Ever since the update I have wated to place my droid under my truck tire and run it over 15 times. My phone has turned into a complete turd and I have tried everything that was recommended on this forum to fix it. My fix is going to be a Evo next month.

    I was in a meeting today and had to show a salesman some data on my phone and I swear to God the phone wouldn't do anything. When It finally woke up and started to work I was so frustrated I ended up turning it off. It was much better back when I had the original software, I don't think the hardware in the older phone is ready for 2.2.

    Hard reset starts in recovery mode. You get there by sliding open the key pad, holding power and X at the same time. You will see the "M" motorola logo, keep holding and the screen goes to recovery mode. I am running Clockworkmod so I have a different screen than you but you should find an option "wipe data / factory reset". follow the steps.

    There should be posts on this already that can be search.

    You're getting some well meaning but nevertheless misleading information.

    First, remove all task killers and antivirus. Task killers and anitvirus are not needed.

    If that alone doesn't fix the issue then a factory data reset is in order. But not the one described by the previous poster. Simply go to you settings/privacy section/factory data reset.

    This will remove all data and free applications from your Droid. Some people say the free apps come back, that's not my experience. Paid apps should start reinstalling themselves once you sing back into Google but if that doesn't happen then go to the Market, click on "My downloads" and you will see them all there. Go ahead and install.

    Now as far as getting your stock back apps, get them on an as needed basis. Do not reinstall task killers or antivirus. Task killers interfere with the way a Droid manages it's memory and are unnecessary. Antivirus is a huge resource hog and is probably the reason your phone is running slow now anyway.

    Good luck.
