    need help understanding the services running that are slowing down my phone. below are the items:

    1) google services - 2x
    Most of what makes the Google apps work.
    2) sync service
    Syncing the email, calendar and anything else that needs syncing between the phone and anywhere else.
    3) homescreen
    The picture you're looking at when you look at the phone.
    4) motocare
    I'm not a Motorola person, but I'd guess that's part of Motorola's bloat. The phone may or may not work without it.
    5) modemstatservice
    The modem is the thing that connects the phone to the carrier - IOW, allows you to make and receive calls, text and data. That's the service that runs the modem.

    Saying that they slow your phone down is like saying that the wheel bearings slow your car down. Sure there's some frictional drag in them, but the car wouldn't work very well if the wheels fell off. Your phone wouldn't work without those services (with the possible exception of #4). It would just be a lot faster at not working. (In fact, if you could eliminate all the firmware running in the phone, it would be really fast - but all it would do is use up the battery and get a little warm.)
