    Just as it says, I got the download this morning, did it as I got ready for work. As soon as I turned the phone on there were issues. The unlock screen was freezing, you could hear the audible buttons on the home screen being pressed. Programs freezing. Pandora froze on the loading screen several times throughout the day while music played. I have never in the almost year since owning this thing had the "force close" message so many times. I even had calls being dropped several times today it was like I hung the phone up. Funny enough one was a telemarketer. The whole thing is slow now and to top it all off it killed the battery today very quickly. What do I do?

    My pc is down and has been for a while so software backup is next to impossible for me to do a factory reset.

    This was not Gingerbread by the way. I actually liked most of what that did. I worked around those tech issues.

    Can I ask if you're rooted? If so, then go into CWR and wipe dalvik. Then I would run fix permissions in rom manager to help as well. Hopefully those two things get you back on track.

    This is exactly why updating scares me. I got the message today that it downloaded the 605 update, but I didn't install it yet.

    I would root and try those two things and see if that helps. If not you can always sbf back with the .602 file and take the update again. Then if it does the same thing, I'd take it to VZW and complain.

    Find a good Verizon store and get them to reflash the phone. You've got a bad install of the update (imho).

    Good luck.

    Just try to SBF to .602 and don't take the update, you can get it done in less than a half hour if you just use a computer at your town's library or borrow a friend's or something. You don't really need the .605 update unless you're having keyboard issues with .602

    Deleted my post....sorry. Will go look for help somewhere else, my first time using these forums. Looked in the wrong place for help I guess and I don't know how to pm him.

    Don't sweat it. It's not a big deal. You're new and need help and you did not get a very good welcome from someone with 7 posts.

    You can pm someone by clicking on their screen name and one of the options will be to pm him.

    Good luck and don't get discouraged. Overall you'll find this a very friendly place and ALMOST everyone will be willing to help you.
