    Ever since updating to 2.1, Droid seems to lag much more when switching between applications. I notice this most often when opening MESSAGING or GALLERY. Any ideas? My Droid use to much zippier.

    Whens the last time you rebooted that puppy? Recently and no change? OK then probably a good factory data reset under the privacy settings will have your Droid in top condition. You won't lose your apps, you will lose data, cookies, etc, have to sign into everything again. But it's worth it.

    My thought is that the problem is actually the new 2.1 gallery (don't like it) which is extremely slow to open (and update with new pictures)...since the messaging appl. depends upon pics from the gallery, it is sort of victim to the gallery's sluggishness.
