    It just seems that in the last few months my Rarz has been slowing down compared to what it was when I first purchased it. (Verizon) I have checked for updates but none have showed up recently. Mine is very slow when I click on my web browser. I have turned off and re-booted several times but it doesn't change the performance. My daughter's Iphone 4s (3g) runs circles around this Rarz. Has anyone noticed a slow down with their Rarz?

    Probably one or more apps running in the background.

    There are several things that will slow your phone down. First, like mastergadgets pointed out, apps running in the background are a common cause. Clearing the phones cache with an app like appcachecleaner (free) make a big difference in performance. Also, I, as well as many others have had success with a "slower" class 6 SD memory card. I had been using a SanDisk Ultra Class 10 card and my phone was a s slow as a glacier in the dead of winter. I changed it out to another card that was a class 6 and it worked great. Still as fast as ever. Give it a try of you have a spare card or can afford to buy a newer one. Stay away from the class 10's though as our phones DO have issues with them.

    I just downloaded the app cleaner. Let me run it for a few days and I will report back with my thoughts. Thanks for the help.
