    Hi all,

    When I first got my Samsung Focus from AT&T (on initial release), the phone worked flawlessly. Unfortunately after the first major update, I'm now experiencing the following:

    - When I attempt to text anyone, I can type the first few words. Then the phone will freeze from 30 seconds to 1 minute. I can then type as much as I want. However, this is *extremely* annoying. :)

    - I'm starting to receive duplicate messages with a lot of texts. I've confirmed with the senders that they only sent the messages one time. Sometimes I only receive 1 duplicate, sometimes multiple.

    Has anyone seen either of these issues, or know of a resolution?

    Thanks!

    -Rebecca

    Try deleting user stored text suggestions: settings/keyboard/reset text suggestions

    Most often when I recieve duplicate messages it's the senders fault. They could be using an app they've downloaded to suppliment their SMS.
