Replace the Torch processor
Well, my water damaged phone of about 3 weeks ago is finally starting to grind to a slowdown. I think I'm needing a new processor installed on my Torch. Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement Torch? My warranty and insurance are invalid because of the water damage (unless I get it stolen but appaerently the rules are for it to be classed as stolen I have to be beaten to an absolute pulp, which doesn't appeal to me). So, is there any way I can buy myself a new processor chip for my Torch and get it up and running to speed again?

I recommend just updating the OS..
Because I don't think the water damage would cause it to slow down.
it would be all or nothing.

Now for your original problem, Water will not "slow down" your phone. It will be fine, odd quirky things will happen(like the keyboard will stop working, physical buttons will stop working, and so on), or it will simply die. As others have suggested wipe and reload the OS.Cell Phone History:Motorola Bag phone > Motorola Star Tac gen1 > Motorola Star Tac gen 2 > Motorola Razr > BlackBerry Pearl(8110) > Iphone gen1 > BlackBerry Curve(8310 Red) > BlackBerry Torch(9800 Black) > BlackBerry Torch II(9810 Gunmetal Silver) > BlackBerry Bold 9900) > BlackBerry Z10(STL100-3 Black)

Right ok so now I've acted like a lazy ***** that should be perma-banned, let's get back to business. I know of one place in Pontefract in Leeds. I wanting to know if people in the area knew of any, but phrased it so badly it was worth punishment by death. However, I am tempted to try reloading the OS. It just doesn't seem right that the lag is general of the Torch. But I will try that latest leaked OS.

when was the last time you even rebooted the phone? long uptimes can create bad lag in general. simply restarting the phone could solve your issue.

I've poked my head in on these mobile chips it looks no where near a cheap job especially when even a minor screw up hoses the phone entirely
Reboot your torch. if that does not work reinstall your OS
Good luckMidnight Tech
I'm gonna try the load a new OS recommendation.
P.S. you know it's bad when .246 seems more effective than .52# (can't remember the exact number)

try reloading to the newest and see if it fixes it. if you still have the issue, we will go from there.
