    Hi guys is this happening only with me or others there too. The phone app is sluggish, if u click on a contacts no the dialing process just lags for a few seconds. It is just not smooth. I heard somewhere that the phone app was built using Adobe air, is this true and will we see a native app for that cause I for sure want a seamless and lag free phone app.

    Also the settings app takes a few seconds to populate some times after clicking it the screen is blank for a few seconds!!

    Same here, I indeed think they're built in Adobe Air. Settings menu is not that important in my opinion, but the phone app and the universal search app are a bit of a mess. My observations with the phone app so far: needs several seconds to load, a few more to load all content, you need to tap any number or quick contact twice till it responds and if you start a call by accident, you have to wait until the call gets through till the hang up button works.

    My phone app has been somewhat sluggish right out of the box. When i open the app it takes about 3 seconds before i can do anything. I have only about 10 contacts programmed. It's a little annoying but i can live with it.

    Hopefully there will be an update to sort this out.

    It already was with the PlayBook

    It is "Sluggish" because it is written in Air and not Cascades. Not sure why that decision was made but that is the reason. Very similar to the issues with the Playbook keyboard.

    I've had issues with the phone. Not happy about that at all. I love that this is a monster when it comes to communication, but my phone needs to work as a phone. I've gotten hang ups numerous times and it not responding when I attempt to answer an incoming call.

    It is sluggish. I agree with the OP. It stutters when it loads. It takes a few hiccups to display the contact pics and name.

    Still not enough to write it off IMHO.

    Hoping BlackBerry is aware of it though.

    Same with the Settings app which is written in Adobe Air.

    Hope it will be updated using cascades...

    Mine was being sluggish also, someone suggested to leave the phone app in your active tiles. I did that and it took care of the lag I was having.

    ya keeping an active frame on dial pad is an option but it shouldn't be.

    The lag is really frustrating especially when attempting to make a quick call using the dialpad.

    Phone app seems to be a bit better with the leaked 10.1 and moving between dialer, contacts and call log is very fluid.

    There is 2-3 threads regarding this issue. What's surprising is that not that many people are complaining about this as one would think they would be, makes me wonder what people actually use their phone for. It seems everyone is preoccupied with the random reboots

    Seriously though, it shouldn't take me a full 5 seconds to get to the dial pad. It's ridiculous and hopefully it gets re written (not improved upon) sometime down the line as it's not acceptable but I'm not holding my breath for it. What do we mainly use our phone for? Phone calls!

    Mine's not doing that.

    There's nothing wrong with the phone.

    It's probably your carrier.

    How can a carrier cause a phone app to be sluggish?? They want you to make calls as much as possible....

    Well so much for the "smoothest phone ever"... guess WP8 still holds that crown.

    Completely forgot about. Calling someone by accident is now even more frustrating as you have to keep constantly tapping "End Call" to make sure the phone call does not connect.
