Phone has gone spastic

My TP (Sprint - stock) has decided to go spastic in numerous ways. I've had it a few months with no issues, suddenly I have more than my share with no reason... I didn't install anything or change the registry in any way. (I did remove an outlook account since I was laid off from the associated job)

Suddenly I've got the keyboard lag, the circling d-pad notifier lights don't always shut down, programs hang, TF3D has refused to respond to clicks/dpad movement, and the start button has ceased to function at times, with the TF3D being stuck in the foreground.

I've got to solve this and am hesitant to hard reset, run a non-stock rom, etc. I used to tweak the hell out of my Titan, but just want the normal function of my TP back without having to spend hours reinstalling my favorite apps, tweaking, etc. I plan on going to the official Sprint WM6.5 if and when it ever comes out, but beyond that would like to keep my phone as basic as possible for the moment. Anybody had this happen and have non-hard reset methods to fix it?

Re: Phone has gone spastic

run a backup like sprite or PIM and hard reset. if that doesnt fix it take it back for a replacement.

Re: Phone has gone spastic

I'm afraid hard reset is the best way to get things back to the way they were...but it will fix all of those issues. Good Luck.

Re: Phone has gone spastic

Hard reset is always the solution to issues like this. Kind of like a home computer which develops issues over time and gets slower, our phones sometimes do the same. Since I DO flash custom ROMs, I rarely experience this, as my phone usually gets hard reset at least once a month. But before I did that, after about three or four months of wondering what everyone else was complaining about, my phone suddenly started getting just as slow.
