    Default VZW not liking Lookout?

    Went into VZW today with a slight problem with my [handset randomly rebooting]. The rep recommended that I uninstall Lookout to fix this problem. I was surprised she did not like Lookout. Have you had a similar experience? Thanks for the replies.

    Verizon employees seem to really hate lookout. Improve it myself. Never caused me any problems. They claim it clears up random issues on the devices they have worked on. I heard this from two reps on the same day when I took my original maxx back in a screen glitch.

    It works fine for me.

    Never had a reboot problem on my Maxx, and I've used Lookout for almost a year on it.

    I have had issues in the past without lookout going "runaway process" It was destroying my battery life and performance. Took it off and immediately saw smooth sailing. Ymmv.

    Interesting--never had battery issues with Lookout, either. I did try Avast for a little while, and noticed that it drained battery significantly more.

    Ditto, can't even tell it's there unless it scans a download.

    The one thing I would recommend about Lookout is to turn the scheduled scans off. That can slow the system down a bit, and it really isn't that helpful, since all of the apps on the device were presumably scanned by Lookout already when they were first installed.
