    I mean, the typing lags or you tap an app icon and nothing happens so you tap again then it opens.
    This worked for me,

    Bridge you Playbook and phone , make sure they are both bridged, and remote control is active on phone. bluetooth icons are on.
    Then simply restart the playbook. just press the on/off button until the backlight goes out.
    Then after a few seconds press the button again to turn it on.
    I then turn of the bridge and bluetooth off (on the phone)
    Let the playbook start up, and use it,

    My playbook is over a year old, and has about 4gigs of free space, loads of apps as well as android apps, BUT I have never had to wipe it

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the info. My pb is running ok. I don't have a bb phone yet, but when the new z10 is released I will buy one. Again thanks for providing great advice and support for the forums. I learn some valuable short cuts from the forums

    I've had to wipe three times in the year plus that I've had the PB. The lag is still unpredictable -- as far as the keyboard goes, it's not always tied to a page not having finished loading. The keys simply do not respond right away, or sometimes for a fair amount of time. Wiping helps, but the problem always returns. I don't see how simply turning the PB off while bridged with remote, then turning the PB on and unbridging would cure this keyboard lag. It seems tied to the browser.

    lag happens with any tablets, especially androids which are much much worse than the pb. I have only had to wipe once, but at least thru desktop you can restore pretty quickly.

    good tip for bb phone owners, for the rest of us who are not a wipe seems the only way. but feel happy that by only having to do it 3 times in a year is at least an 8th of what I had to do with my android, regardless of being on gb, ics or jb.
