Re: Response time is extremely slow since update

I am out of contract with my Tbolt and I prefer the newer ICS update over the Gingerbread version.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I was hoping I wouldn't have to do a hard reset but after reading your recommendation and that of other TB users, I will give it a shot. Thank you!

I think my phone is haunted. The phone icon keeps disappearing from the home page. When I go to dial a number from the keypad, the Facebook app loads.  If I bring the phone near my computer speakers, I get Morse code noises from them.

Despite a hard reset, the phone is still dog slow.  I'm eligible for an upgrade next month. I cannot wait to get out of this phone.

Despite the best intentions of HTC and Verizon, this OS has makes too many demands on the single core electronics of the Thunderbolt.  There are two and  a quarter pounds of coleslaw jammed into a two pound container.

I did the hard reset on Feb 20 - I am still having issues with how slow the response time is - God forbid I have an emergency phone call to make when it takes sometimes up to two minutes between the time I hit call to the time the phone actually dials.  Texts aren't going through as they should, sometimes not at all, even after resending.  I am disappointed.

Re: Response time is extremely slow since update

Well, as follow up to my own initial experience, I noticed that after some time, my phone still started to behave slowly and sluggish again.  So, I did another factory reset.   Not sure, but perhaps ICS is too much for the Tbolt, as others have suggested.  

While I'm out of contract, I don't like to spend money if I don't have to, so I'm tempted to root and downgrade the OS.  We'll see ... who knows.  I hate to have to think of doing such drastic action, just to get back to decent performance.

It's marketing and directing the customer. The software guys certainly knew what would happen to performance.

1. Upgrade near the end of market life;

2. Wow the user with the new OS;

3. Motivate them to renew and buy a new phone.

It's like installing Windows 8 on an old 386 machine.
