    I see you have lookout installed. my experience with virus protection apps have not been good on my phone. Ive had a few of them installed and they made my phone laggy and unresponsive. If a fdr doesn't help maybe try running without lookout.

    I second Lookout it caused a lot of lag on my last phone. Once I removed it the lag went away.

    Lookout is one of the apps that I did not reinstall after the FDR. Good to see evidence of lag and interference associated with something specific!

    So far performance is improved on what it was, but we'll see how it goes. I went on a 4-mile run yesterday running both MapMyRun and StitcherRadio, and only had one occasion where Stitcher dropped completely associated with the GPS blinker. Usually on that run it happens 3-4 times. Very annoying to break pace and pull out the phone to restart music or podcasts.

    I also just set up Clean Master to clean tasks whenever the screen turns off, and instructed it to ignore WinAmp, Stitcher and audible. I feel like this will help as well.

    Thank you both.

    Ppl on here know me to be the pessimist when it comes to this phone. Just to let you know before I rant.

    I have THE SAME PROBLEM and so does most. Im in the car, playing audio through my speakers via Bluetooth, and for no reason (at least a logical one to me) it will just stop, for seconds... like something is going to happen; a phone call, text, etc.

    My wife has an iPhone5, tried hers out an it NEVER stops or pauses.

    Look, its a nice phone, but already outdated and buggy. I dunno, maybe Im not a big "phone" person. I only got the thing cuz my wife kept teasing me about having a 3 year old "dumb" phone.

    Another thing, ever notice how when you hang up with someone and go back to the call log... its freaking way down the page??? Why is not at the top showing the last call? Who knows. This phone has so many "unknowns" its sickening.

    And everyones answer is "clear the cache" - "reset the phone" and Im like "WTF!?!?!?!??! This is supposed be a smart phone?"

    Also while Im ranting, I swear to Christ, when I get out of my car, and shut it off, WHY does my phone stay in Vehicle Mode (Smart Action) WHY?????????????????????????? 80% of the time it stays in it.

    While I wouldnt care so much normally, the other day, I get out, walk into the office, and my phone blurts out "So and so has texted you, would you like to read it" or something like that... everyone is looking at me like some Martian.

    Oh, and please, save yourself the embarrassment of "showing it off" to anyone, because its a 50/50 shot it will get buggy and you will look like even more of a tool.

    Do what I do. Dont even play with it. I used to play with it, try to make it cooler looking, etc. Now it just sits there, my iPad is back to being my bathroom assistant.

    Sad but true :(

    I still think Jimmy's is f------- up and he won't return it.
    I don't have half the issues he does.
    My phone never, not even 1% of the time, gets stuck in "Vehicle Mode".
    I don't have to shout, as he does, to get Google Now to hear me.
    My call log doesn't do what his does. Ever. Not. One. Time.

    Lol. I have insurance so I might just smash it and pay the 100 deductible

    By the way wise guy... The should have called this phone the RAZR HD Clear edition.. Seems every problem is answered with "clear this and clean that".

    As for you pere ... "your a cantaloupe"

    Do you have some sort of task killer killing your running programs?

    This may or it may not help, one of the problems that I have happens to be a big which is Bluetooth, it is not an issue with my phone, I know this because I had the same issue with my HTC phone prior to this one. But my car, my Infiniti has the WORST BLUETOOTH!!! What I have resorted to trying and maybe this could help with Bluetooth connectivity in your car with your device. I use an app called DSPManager, which the link is right here. Basically, this allows you the ability to increase the volume on Bluetooth, Speaker, and Headset. Who knows maybe this can even help out the OP, as it sounds like he/she runs with his/her device while listening to music. Anyhow I have settings all of them set to the maximum. Make sure to disable the Acoustic Warning, or freeze it, as it sets a frequency limit, and if there is a limit DSPManager will not work properly.

    Is it possible that he's running on a power saver mode? Or is win amp checking out if the person is still there like Pandora? Get rid of lookout. Do you have to use winamp? Maybe try Google music? Have you told your phone not to play sounds when you receive an email, text, or update? If your music is on the phones memory and not in the cloud maybe it's the hard drive.

    Is there a remote chance you can update the firmware on your blue tooth device?
