    I'm seriously spending double the time I used to texting because everything that has to do with sms is lagging. I type a message and it lags, I send a message and it lags, I hit the back button to go back to all the messages and it lags.

    Also, once or twice a day I will go into my SMS app and it will say I have no messages....? Or I'll be texting someone and randomly all the texts disappear and the app blanks out.

    I have stock everything except Zooper widget and my other apps. I do not know what to do at this point. Please help, I'm restarting my phone 3 or 4 times a day nowadays.

    you using the stock sms? there's a bunch of alternatives on Google Play like Go Sms, Messaging 7, Chomp.. I personally use Messaging 7 cause of its speed & customization.

    I didn't like GoSms or chomp (I tried another one also but can't think of the name of it). But the stock was working fine. I thought maybe I had too many messages in the memory so I deleted everything and still same thing happens.

    I'll take a look at messaging7 but really the stock app should be working, right?

    Edit ok I just downloaded it and set it up....pretty damn good looking app. But what keyboard do you use?

    And there's stilll the lag ://////

    It could be something you recently downliaded causing the lag or other issues. How long ago did it start? When it started, was there something you recently downloaded?

    It's been happening for a few months now.....started happening on a daily basis though. I'm not sure what apps would cause it. I don't have too many apps...I don't even know what would cause the lag.

    no lag here on both of my Note 2.

    perhaps you can try a factory reset to see if that helps?

    I doubt it's the problem, I really think you have a poorly coded app.

    Clearing the messenger app will delete all your texts so be aware

    Settings> application manager> all> messaging> clear data(or you can clear cache from this Screen and try just that first)

    Alright thanks! I deleted all the app data and some unnecessary apps and most of the lag is gone.

    OK another thing you can do is go into your messages screen then hit the menu button then change your stored text and multimedia messages to a lower number also you can delete your threads I clear mine out weekly.

    I have decreased the # of messages to save. I even completely cleared out all messages.....I'm still having issues with the messages screen showing "no messages". Even if it's one thread with 1 messages, it'll just disappear until I restart the Note.

    The lag has improved though....just the whole disappearing thing is annoying. Happens at least twice a day. I've been through my apps and have deleted almost all of them.

    Are you under warranty still cause I would have it exchanged... Well I would put a new rom on it. But if I was someone who doesn't root or rom I would def return it.

    Yeah I am and im thinking about just doing that. Is there any way to backup and restore like the iphone? Maybe something in the file system is screwed up.

    you can sync your contacts to google, or open the contacts app hit the menu button and export to sd, this will create a vcard with all your contacts which you can drag to your computer. for pictures and other media you can just hook up the phone to your computer and drag the contents onto your computer, or when you plug in the phone there is an option to import media and it will scan your whole device and allow you to create an import folder.

    you can also use something like my backup pro, it costs some money. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...id.MyBackupPro

    As was previously mentioned, I'd do a master (factory) reset first just to get back to a known clean state. Then if the problem still persists, exchange it under warranty.

    Since you're on Verizon, I highly recommend trying out the Verizon Messages app to use for SMS. Normally, I remove all VZW crap, but this messaging app is pretty nice. Not as many aesthetic options as some other 3rd party apps, but I find texting works so much better on Verizon phones when using it.

    What's also nice is that it supports group messages (like the iPhone). Not sure if Note2's stock app does this or not (I have an S3), but the functionality is there. Pop-up notifications is a nice plus as well.
