    Ive been trying to just fight through it and deal with the lag and buggy-ness, poor browser(s) available, freezing and everything else. It's quite depressing this has been happening since the phone was solid before ICS. I don't have apps that are big files.. no real music on the phone.. so this is bogus.

    Contemplating ditching Android for Apple.. I KNOW.. I KNOW..

    But damn.. this is ridiculous.

    Did you do a factory reset after you upgraded

    I'm afraid to do that.. I have a lot of pictures and information on my phone that i don't want to lose. [No apps I paid for, thankfully]

    You won't lose anything that is saved to your external sd card and you will be given the option to clear your internal sd card. Just hit no when it pops up. You won't lose any pictures. Only all your apps(which if you paid for, they would be backed up with Google anyway). And all your settings and you will have to re do all your home screens.

    But it is definitely worth it, it will more than likely solve your problems.

    Think of it like a computer, when you install a new os (say, windows xp to windows 7) you wouldn't expect to be able to just install over the old one with out running into problems.

    Doubtful it will solve the issues long term. I have done 3 full resets since ics. It will speed up for a while and then slow way down a few weeks later. I have not been able to pinpoint it to any app.

    I've had no problems. Just as fast as the day I installed ics. Faster than it was on gb. Probably a rouge app. You should reset and not restore any apps..

    Mentioned many times before, but worth mentioning again: Try a cache partition wipe, which does NOT erase any important data.

    Unlikely that it will actually help that much but it's worth a shot. Still think he should just do a factory reset since he never did one after the upgrade.

    So far, I have done 4 cache wipes and 3 full factory resets. My phone is STILL slow. It will speed up after the reset and then a few weeks later, be slow and unresponsive. I am not complaining. It seems funny that there are so many variances in the way these phones work. Some people get 2 days on one charge, some get 12 hours.

    As far as I know, the problem stems from an app issue but I can't be certain. I guess I could do another wipe and then install an app, wait a few weeks and then install another. *shrug* I like ICS but I miss some of the solidity of GB. Still I'm happy with my phone overall and the only way I'd change is for the Maxx HD. (Or believe it or not, my old EVO 3D......I loved that little guy. *sniffle*)

    Is Chrome installed? I know from experience that Chrome slowed my Acer A500 tablet down like crazy when I tried it a few months ago, even when I wasn't actually using it for browsing (Chrome was still in beta at the time). If you have Chrome, see what happens if you uninstall it.

    Nope. Still running the stock browser. No longer running Flash Player. It's not a web thing per say. Sometimes when I try to open my yahoo mail, it stares at me......and then remembers what it was supposed to do.

    Last full reset, I left off 95% of my games and silly apps thinking that maybe they were the cause. No such luck. My GPS still has issues but I'm almost certain that's a Google issue as my fiance's Rezound has the exact same issue.

    It's a bit frustrating because it's almost like my poor phone lost a processor but I still love the phone enough that I manage to ignore it most of the time.

    Someone recently posted that de-syncing Motocast solved a lot of freezeup and force close issues (at least so far). If any of you use Motocast, you might try the same.

    i tried doing the cache partition wipe 3 times but failed. but, i think i found out why my phone was laggy and locking up...it was the motocast so glad i found the answers on one of the forums here....I was loosing hope for my razr maxx, lol...

    and the frustration you're and the frustration you're experiencing is very common. As for the real music, ., look for an app called "music paradise", and this will help you find some tunes.

    Let's all hang together. There's no sense in jumping ship and doing something foolish like getting an i-Brick

    Just for the record, I know this thread is old, I had similar problems caused by old apps from my Droid X installed onto new Razr Maxx HD. In particular, a program called "Startup Auditor" was causing at least half of my problems. Start fresh. If problems, factory reset and remove all apps. And when you get new phone, don't assume any of your favorite apps will work on new phone.

    I know this thread is old as well, but I also disabled motocast and it seems my phone is running well. I was having g problems with 4G and literally after disabling motocast and restarting my phone 4G was there like it was supposed to. I'll keep you posted if this fix keeps working.

    I concur. Unless Motocast is essential to you, definitely disable it.
