Lag is making me crazy!!

I've had the Imagio now since it came out. Overall I really like the phone. The size, Worldphone, the "look" etc. all work well for me. But, the problem is that the lag that builds up on this phone is driving me nuts. Nuts, the point that I am actively considering moving on to something else. The problem with that is that its likely to be there with any WinMo phone that's out right now.

I know about apps to get rid of/close stuff that isn't needed. I have the htcaddits app that works well. But if I'm having to constantly run that app it costs me just as much time as waiting for something to run. It might sound, and be, trivial to most here, but its not to me.

I've thought to going to see the Moto Droid but I cannot do without being able to sync my phone with my calendar, contacts etc. with my work machine. I don't think any droid is capable of doing that right now. I don't know what VZW might have in the works to be available shortly that may be running WinMo but with a snapdragon or other faster processor.

I don't expect anyone to have any resolution to fixing this on the Imagio because I don't think there is one. I guess I'm just blowing off steam because this is making me crazy. MS needs to have this resolved in WM 7 but I don't think I can wait that long. This is just flat out frustrating!

Re: Lag is making me crazy!!

You know, I just might try that. I like touchflo but if that is a major cause of the lag I will try living without it. I'll shut it down now and see how it runs in that mode for the next couple of days. Thanks for the suggestion.

Re: Lag is making me crazy!!

I also bought the imagio on day 1. My phone became progressively more laggy as time went on. It was really annoying as my phone started to take about 4-5 minutes just to start up!

Here is what I did to fix it.

1. Use My Phone to backup all your contacts. This makes it a snap to re-populate your contact list.

2. HARD RESET my phone to remove all the crap that is making it laggy.

3. Install all core type of CAB's directly into the phone storage. One example is Compact Framework 3.5. If you install it to your micro SD card, an app that uses its API is considerably slower.

4. Install all other apps 1 by 1 and test to see if it gets laggy after each one is installed. If so, then you found the issue.

5. Once all apps are installed, cross your fingers and wait a few days (or weeks) to see if it is getting laggy again. So far, I haven't gotten any lag.


I've spent HOURS trying to figure out issues for my phone being laggy. Trust me, a hard reset and re-installing apps is less frustrating. It took me about 1 - 1 1/2 hours to re-install and reconfigure everything and now my phone runs SPEEDY .

Re: Lag is making me crazy!!

Can you post a list of apps that you have running on your Imagio and where you installed them? That would give a starting place with any apps that we have in common. It would also let me know which ones I can put back on without fear of slowing this thing down again. After that I can post which ones I'm adding as I do it one by one and how the phone is acting after installation.

Re: Lag is making me crazy!!

Mine freezes EVERYTIME I send a text. When I exit out of the message thread back into the main message list it freezes and I cant do anything for about 30 secs.

Re: Lag is making me crazy!!

Freezing usually needs a master reset. I suggest this anytime you get a buggy phone. Mine hasnt' lagged a bit and I've modded the hell out of it.
