    Any else notice some pretty terrific lag with the newly updated GV since the .26 update? It seems the more you use it the worse it gets. What I have noticed is that if I open an SMS from GV via the notification bar - it actually opens another conversation - i.e - I am texting my fiance and after about 15 minutes when I actually use the back button out of the application I am backing out of the same identical conversations 6 or 7 times if not more. I think the lag is from GV having to update all of those identical windows (for lack of a better word).

    I usually end up killing the app and restarting it and then it's fine - I don't use any of the new widgets or anything either.

    Is there anywhere the older version of the GV app might be hiding until this mess gets resolved?

    I have found that deleting conservations helps. I had a thread that was over 200 messages and GV took forever to load and would sometimes lag when trying to type a message. After I cleared the messages GV got much quicker.

    On top of the lag, I've also noticed that I can't seem to send new sms messages. I can only reply to the ones in my inbox. I tried to send one yesterday, but it wouldn't allow me to enter anything in the phone number spot. Very frustrating. Droid Incredible

    Clearing some large threads helps- but the lag behavior still happens - just not nearly as bad. Not sure what they changed with the new version

    I would really like to be able to go back to the older version. Any one know how to do this?

    I have been searching around for an older apk but I don't have one. Anyone have a GV apk prior to 0.4.1.19 - basically pre widget nonsense

    God I hope so - this last release has been a disaster. Makes my phone almost unusable. Nothing on the market place yet

    I ended up uninstalling and loading an older version from :

    http://www.odslabs.com/gv.apk

    There is an open thread on google's support forum :

    Google Voice is slow to open after latest update - Google Mobile Help

    Works much better now
