    Help!! Why is my new storm so slow?????

    Advertisement



    I just got my storm today and its VERY SLOW and VERY sluggish. I installed the Desktop Manager and found some updates but I havent noticed much. One thing I really cant stand is the phone going into "landscape mode menu "while your just holding it.... you cant just tilt it sideways and goes right to it??? Is there an option to turn that off and it only do that during an application?
    Newb.... But learning something new everyday

    It is slow, that is what it seems to be.... Everything seems to have that second delay...

    And that Landscape problem drives me crazy too... I'm always trying to flick it to put it back in to portrait.

    you are not alone...! good phone, but drives me crazy sometimes.

    as KaraBear was pointing out check what version you are running. Anything below .75 upgrade your OS and youll see a WORLD of differences.

    Ok theres a few things you can try. First pull up the full qwerty keyboard and press 123! to number lock then press "/"/ which will bring up the event log>press menu>clear log>then close it out. Then pull your battery for a few seconds and replace it. That may help out some. Also make sure you close out each application by selecting Menu>Close.

    You can also try upgrading to Bell/Telus's .76. I just made the topic. It may help your device run quicker.
