    i have come back to blackberry since the radio reception is so much better here at my work. my wife and i got the bold 9650. i had a 9700 before this and i cant get over how much more smooth it was. why are both our 9650's so laggy? pressing the bb button for the menu takes like 2 seconds sometimes, the touchpad freezes once and a while for a few seconds, opening apps seems to take forever compared to my 9700.

    whats up with that?

    i got rid of most bloatware, reinstalled OS, cleaned it up etc..same on both phones..

    Maybe one of your apps is causing your problem. My Bold is pretty snappy, some lag in BBM.

    I ran 732 for about 2 months and tried 810; it runs about the same on my Bold, just freed up about 10 add'l MB. I have meterberry, FB, berryweather, poynt, google maps, google sync, google mobile app, google voice, quicklaunch and BBM and I run lag free. Is it safe to assume you close apps, clear browser cache, etc?

    Could it have something to do with running it on AT&T?

    I'm running .810. Change/pull the battery daily and its relatively snappy. I've noticed on the weekends that I don't usually pull the batt and feels as though its more sluggish by sunday night. You probably knew this already but clearing the event log perks these phones right up.

    Im running .810 and I never do a batt pull/reset unless I install something new and my bold is never very laggy.

    Compared to my former 8330, there is almost ZERO lag on the 9650. It still amazes me.

    +1 daily battery pulls are for Pearls, not Bolds. I think the longest I've gone so far is 16 days between resets, and the only reason I rebooted was because an app was updated.

    The Bold is one of the snappiest BlackBerrys out there. When you get it out of the box, you'll breeze through all your apps and screens. But after loading 42 apps and having 10 running in the background 24/7, it will slow down quite a bit.

    However, it's never as bad as 2 seconds to open the menu with the BB button. My dad just got a brand new 9650 and I'm stunned how fast it is compared to mine. Mine takes 7.5 min to reboot while his takes under 3 min (still WAY too long). This is just a problem with BlackBerrys since all the native data is stored on the RAM, and the processor is overwhelmed pretty quickly.

    My battery pulls are mainly because I switch the battery daily due to battery being used up. The fact that it stays snappy and fast is a side benefit. I think when people say that this os is faster than that os, a lot of it can be attributed to a fresh clean install.

    It shouldn't lag unless you lose reception.

    When you lose reception the signal reacquisition can lock the phone up for a few seconds.
