    Help! My droid is being about as awesome as acid washed jeans right now!

    One, it's going REALLY SLOW. It's taking about 10 secs to bring up the native messages.

    When I start typing a contact in to the text messenger, it shows every contact literally 30 or 40 times duplicated in the drop down list.


    Any ideas for me?
    I upgraded to the latest version, now it's terrible.

    For your contacts, log into your google account from a PC and clean up the contacts. Delete dups, etc. It is easy they give you options for doing all that.

    As for the slowness, did you do a factory reset? If not I would. To help with that download Astro File Manager from the market and use it to back-up your apps. After the reset you can restore the apps from your sdcard.

    Also, if you do some searching/browsing in this forum you can find the answers to most questions. I think we've covered everything here many times over.
