    Anyone else's stock messaging app slowing down so much that you can't use it? I can restart the phone or clear the app cache, setting and force stop it to make it speed up again. I have to do once every one or two days.

    I bought my DI2 the day it came out and have had no problems with it until a few days ago. You cant touch the icon and it will turn green 5 seconds after the touch. Every selection takes about 30 seconds to complete and loading another 30 seconds or so. The touch aspect of the keyboard works fine except the text has a 5 second delay before being put in the text box.

    That's weird - something else has gotta be causing it... I've had mine almost a month and never experienced any lag like that of any kind. Did you install anything or do anything a few days ago when the problems started?

    Now that you mention it I installed the eset mobile security around the time that it was slowing down, cant remember if the slow down started before or after i installed it.

    Might be worth testing - I saw the lifehacker article about ESET, as comprehensive as that sounds (and beta right?), it wouldn't surprise me if that does something. Sometimes those antivirus (etc) apps can have a real negative effect on performance. Might not be it, but worth checking... If you do uninstall it, make sure you clear data in Messages and reboot before you test any more.

    You can use something like MyBackup Pro to backup your texts before you clear the data.

    I dont need to save the texts, the first thing I did when i experienced the first slow down was to delete all texts, I was thinking that it was trying to load too many. I read that same article which convinced me to install it in the first place. It is in beta which of course could cause problems.

    I can't speak highly enough of Handcent for texting. Much better than the stock. I've had it since my first Droid in late '09.

    I tried Handcent and Go SMS but just didnt care for them. I like that you can customize nearly everything but sometimes because of that, theres just too much stuff to mess with to get it to work the way you want. I like the stock app just fine.

    Good point. I tend to go stock unless I really like a replacement enough to fiddle with it.

    So far everything is working fine. Must have been that ESET security.

    Nevermind, false alarm. It just started to slow down like molasses in winter time. Again I had to reboot the phone.

    Mine did the same a while back but it seems to have been that FlexT9 keyboard that I had gotten from Amazon. Things are normal now. Do you happen to have a third party keyboard installed? My lag happened even if I wasn't using that keyboard at the time, as long as it was installed on my phone it was an issue.

    I did get that same keyboard form amazon. Guess I should try uninstalling it then. I'll uninstall it and we'll see how it goes.

    EDIT: As I'm going to uninstall it, I noticed that the data is pretty high at 1.61 MBs. That seems awfully high for any app.

    Sorry for the bump but I have been trying to figure out if I was the only DROID I2 user to be having this issue. This is one of the reasons I asked Verizon to exchange my Droid 2 for an Incredible 2; it seems to have followed me.

    I'm using the stock messenger and even limited each contact a 400 message limit. Still I am getting 30 second load times just to answer a one word txt.

    What is going on?

    EDIT: I actually just switched to the Gingerbread keyboard so I'll see how that goes.

    Mine doesn't slow down rendering it useless, but it does lag. Sometimes it takes a few seconds to change my new texts from "unread" to "read" status. For example, after I read my new texts and go to the screen with all of my texts from all of my contacts, for a few seconds it will still say that I have X amount of messages unread, when in fact I had just taken a look at them previously.
