fullhouse451, let's smash the gas peddle and speed it up! Your device may be cluttered with alot of information and 3rd party software issues. I recommend that you uninstall any unwanted applications in Settings, delete text messaging conversations, call logs, and e-mails. Once you've removed unwanted information from your phone, power it off/on to soft reset it. I trust that these steps will improve the performance of your device.

Its my first post regarding my slow responding Razr Maxx, I did follow your detail instruction and cleared my cache, thanks to your instructions.
My phone is much better now, but still a bit slow, is there any other suggestions?
I would like to delete as well old emails from some of my 4 Gmail accounts, in one account it says I have over 999+ email, does that take off space from phone or it sits on Gmail server and only brings in headers until requesting more info?
I am one my 4th Droid Razr Maxx..They all do the same thing
And yes I have cleared the cache, reset the phone....blah blah blah
I am wondering, ever since 4.1.2 the phone is a paper weight. They send me the same phone with a processor that cannot handle the increase in the usage. The phone is great battery ect..but not much good when it does not respond.
That's unusual performance from the advanced and reliable Razr Maxx selracer, especially after three replacements! Sounds like there may be a pattern developing here. I recommend testing the device in safe mode for a full day to rule out third party app conflict. Please let us know how the device responds. A hard reset would be the next step after that. If the device still doesn't respond a replacement would be the same make and model.

Have you Tried any suggestion listen on the Forum.? , Power Cycle , Clear System Cache, Run the phone in Safe Mode to find problematic 3rd party Apps.. Any one of these suggestions can help the phone you may fix the issue using one of them or it May take all three. Give one or all a Try then report back to this Post.. We can go from there b33
B33 I've been following this thread for a while now and have tried all 3 of the above suggestions and I am stuck.
Well if you've tried those suggestions and your still seeing pale results then you may have to Factory Reset just the normal Reset don't clear your Internal or SD storage.! My Razr Maxx is doing fine so far there there are occasions when it has an issue but restarting it or Clearing the System Cache usually clears it up...
If you're feeling stuck, allow us to get you out of this situation. Given the troubleshooting you've done, we may need to look at same model replacement options. Please accept my follow request, follow back, and direct message your name, mobile number, and billing password (or last four of your social if a password isn't present) so we can research.

Mine is going slow, force closing, freezing to where I can't even lock or unlock the screen, I receive duplicate text messages. Sometimes it doesn't even send them. I have had SO many replacement phones and logged so many hours on the phone with customer service that I am about at my wits end with this. My husband is seriously considering switching providers because for the last year and a half we have had nothing but problems with our faulty phones being replaced with faulty phones.
We can't let you go, BranwenShelton. I too was having a problem with freezing. Once I did the hard reset approximately 2 weeks ago, it's been smooth sailing. I don't want you to go quite that far just yet.
Have you tried it in Safe Mode http://bit.ly/OJWrbo? We want to get to the root cause of the freezing. Let's get to your happy place again so you and your husband can forget about leaving.
