I have made no changes to the user installed software (apps, widgets, configuration, etc) on my phone for quite some time. However, with the last two software software releases, my phone is slower and slower. At times, it will take 30-60 seconds (!) to present me with the apps when I press the app button. I have given up on using the camera because by the time the camera app is loaded and ready to take a picture, the picture opportunity is long gone. I am looking longingly at my wife's iPhone that always seems to work. Is there anything to be done to rescue my phone? Can I go back to 2.1 (the last time I remember it being reponsive)? Would rooting and installing a custom ROM help? Thanks from a very frustrated and attempting to be loyal but slowing giving up Android user.
