    turn it off and back on.

    if you have installed some apps or played with any settings, sometimes things can kind of get "hung up".

    just turn it off wait 30 seconds and power it back on and see if it gets any better

    jess is right, smartphones are computers. Sometimes you just have to restart.

    Do you mean the screen is starting to lag a bit, or it's actually freezing and not unfreezing for several seconds, or never until you turn it off, or what?

    I have the same issue. Constant freezing for 10 or 15 seconds. Additionally, the notification draw I flickering and drops down on it's own. Returning for another one.

    Update, exchanged for another one and it is working great.

    it seems like i'm the unlucky one. i returned my first atrix to costco and the second one had the same problem after the update that was supposed to fix it!! this thing is frustrating because i love my phone but this freezing thing is really annoying i feel like getting a new one; with the new update is coming out hopefully motorola will do something right for a change
