    I did just update to 2.1, but that did not help, still very slow.

    Anybody else notice this?

    How can I find out what is causing this? I don't want to reinstall.

    What can I do to make the phone as fast as it was when it was new?

    What apps do you have installed? More often than not when a phone gets laggy, you have two or more apps not playing well together.. give us a list and we'll work from there

    The reason is because Milestone is a sucky phone.

    It wouldn't be a problem if we had an unlocked bootloader, but Motorola wont do that.

    Yes, I overclocked to 1.2GHz. It's a lot smoother now but I still prefer my HTC Desire :D
