Clearing your cache...

OK so I've noticed in the past month or so my phone gets noticeably progressively slower. I've seen a lot of talk about clearing the cache, but I want to know what will happen. Will I lose passwords, typed documents, permissions on apps? Basically, once the cache wipe is done, what will I need to do? Will everything be just as I left it, only faster?

You will lose nothing. I clear mine at least once a week.

Sorry Phil.... I'm usually not that grumpy. LOL... I'm also far from the brightest light on the Christmas tree.

You may also want to look in the Google Play Store for a free app called "appcachecleaner". I use it regularly and it is very easy to use.

Way to wake a zombie..... Lol.. How did you lose contacts by clearing your cache? ... You shouldn't have... Did you follow the steps or did you possibly get Confused along the way?
 
Followed step by step. Suggestions? You would not LOL if it where you. Thanks.

Where and how did you have your contacts stored? Are they supposed to store to your Gmail, or your Verizon contacts?


And I've lost almost 1000 contacts due to a vzw employee doing a fdr on my phone, when my contacts were all unsaved because I had just gotten a new sim card.. Not fun.. And I had to laugh..

They may not be lost. I don't remember the exact phone setting or sequence to get there bc I don't have my Razr anymore but go into your phone or contact settings, explore, look for a setting like “contacts to display" or something similar. There will be several different contact accounts associated with emails, phone, gmail, etc. Try the different accounts to see which your contacts were saved under.

Why would you let a Verizon employee touch your phone in the first place???

Don't blame the Verizon rep. Its your own fault you don't take responsibility for your information and make sure its backed up. If you had an iPhone and took it to an Apple store they'd do the same thing. It's your information, therefore responsibility lies solely on you. Sure, (s)he could have told you they're doing a FDR but what if you lost your phone or it was stolen or wont boot? You would have lost the info then too for not using your head. ;)


-Flash now, ask questions later.
 
The Verizon rep was the bigger idiot. They never should have wiped the phone without telling the customer first and backed up the phone first. Idiot
