Suddenly (painfully) slow performance and lag?
Over the last three days, my Bold 9930 (running Verizon 7.1.457) has become incredibly laggy and slow for no reason. I have not downloaded any new apps, music, pictures...nothing to slow it down, so this decrease in performance is very random.
The phone has become so slow that, at times, it's freezing during text messaging and requires a batt pull. For the phone to restart from a batt pull is taking 5+ minutes. Browsing is laggy and slow as well, and unlocking the screen requires a good 15 seconds of thinking before the screen/phone is responsive.
Any idea what might be wrong?

Verizon has .457??? (Or do you mean 7.1.0 BUNDLE 457 - that is really 22.214.171.124)
Also, did you just upload the new OS? That could be the problem. Seems odd. Have you tried deleting any unused apps? Sometimes things can be running in the background as well - what apps do you have installed?~SaMaster14

My 9930 is doing the same thing and its very annoying. It takes four or five seconds to open up a text and then another four or five seconds to actually reply. I can't even navigate around quickly on the dang thing. It's VERY annoying. If blackberry 10 doesnt deliver, IM OUT OF HERE!Can I get some battery life out of this thing or what?

Have you gone into Options and checking if an app or module is working overtime and making your device slower and/or unresponsive?

My 9930 does the same thing. The only way to relieve it is to restart daily.
The only app I have running in the background is Socialscope, and Im only using 1gb of the 6gb memory. I don't know why it does this.
If you have OS 7.1 installed, type "device" in the Universal Search, choose Options, then Device Analyzer. Choose "Issues with Device Responsiveness" and see if your phone is running out of memory.

Its been suggested that if you have a memory card, go into the storage/memory card setting and disable the compression option. This should alleviate the annoying spinning clock.
I just did that so Im not sure if it helps yet. I haven't had a spinning clock issue this morning though.
I have gone through my inbox and cleared out as much as possible. I've also deleted a few old apps that I don't use often. This evening I can try to move some files from the phone to my computer, but I'm only usng 1.3 of 6GB, so I don't feel like that should necessarily be a problem.
Thanks for the tips!

Try to shrink the OS perhaps?
Shrinking removes A LOT of things you don't need or use. My OS is usually around 80-90MB.
I am on a hybrid as well, seems to let me get the most out of my device, maybe you can take that into consideration.BerryLicio.us Ultimate 7.1 Hybrid HERE
