    Come to think of it, the last two apps I installed is also skyfire and the new pic mail app.

    Unfortunately, the only thing that worked for me was a full master reset. I did not install the new pic mail or skyfire, and the phone is fine. I would love to install skyfire, but i have no need for the pic mail. has anyone else had these problems with either app? And how stable is your phone with skyfire? Also, is there another program to use that works like skyfire?

    Dont think it is the app doing it. I have both and never had a problem. did you use sktool to clean out your text and emails?

    haha once i figured out that I had the app I did. It seemed to work for about 10 mins then the phone went back to freezing. Basically I could only send 1 text, then pull the batt. make 1 call, then pull the batt... etc... doint the master reset is the only thing that worked. but now that xplicit702 is having the same problem after installing the same apps, im scared to install them again.

    <p>Yeah when my phone starts acting slow I use the master reset - the only thing that has ever fixed the problem for me. The phone just gets bogged down. Make sure you have all of your files, apps, favs, ect to your computer or card. Reseting your phone is really no big deal if you do.</p>

    Why in your opinion is that a bit to much? I can see if you have a ton of apps you don't want to have to re-install or something like that. But for myself it's not that big of a deal.

    Yea, its nice to have a clean phone. If you reinstall all your apps and put it back the way it was before the reset, what did you fix? I would want to know what caused the problem to begin with, because if you dont fix that, your problem will reappear.

    because the master reset is like a wrecking ball when all you could possibly need is a little tweak here or there
    have you ever bothered to look for the problem?

    not once in the nearly 2 years i have owned a Q (Q1, Q9c, Q9n) have i ever had to do a master reset

    exactly

    As they say - sometimes you have to wipe the slate clean - to fix EVERYTHING.

    How many resets have you done?

    Ever say "Wipe the slate clean" to your kids, spouse or another person? Did you ever say it again?
