    HELP! phone started slugging itself completely down and being anti-responsive

    my phone has been working COMPLETELY fine today, didnt install any new apps or do anything different....and now all of a sudden at around 10pm it starts bogging down like CRAZZZYYYY. ive reset it a few times, took the battery out for a minute, still slow!! sometimes it works...sometimes it doesnt. it tends to freeze up incredibly when opening my texts, and sometimes when i respond, the cursor moves, but no text is visible. When i go back to see the sent messages, it shows the full text.

    i dont wanna reformat it again. what the hell is wrong with it? COMPLETELY random

    do you have a lot of text messages stored?
    how about IE temp files and history?

    yes i do, but i highly doubt the texts are the problem, I will clear them out. But its also being anti-responsive to other programs (like task manager)

    I just cleared my IE temp

    dammit, i knew that program had a virus in it! lol

    i cleared my IE temp, I REAALLYY doubt its my text inbox, because task manager is locking up, all apps are locking up.

    its completely random, it happend to be once before, i just reformated...but im going away for the weekend and dont wanna have to do that right now, i just wanna get to bed haha.

    whats the deal?

    been there
    that has happened to me

    ill load up the task manager and it will just hang and hang
    eventually it does load up and after i kill text messages its fine

    hasnt happened in a LONG time but its happened

    but there is a chance it could be something else...
    perhaps look in to sktools as well

    This happened to me a couple days ago.

    I had to master reset, it just wouldnt stop being so sluggish.

    Sucks, majorly.

    im starting off by deleting all my sent messages, hopefully if i can clear some of that up, i can use it enough tonight to take care of what I need to do. I know this process takes a few hours.

    oh boy do i hope you guys are right!!
