    I just got a Captivate last week and I am trying to figure it all out. d/l some app's like LaunchPro and SWM. But today it started lagging noticeably and did something quite unusual

    When someone calls my phone, it doesn't ring and I can't swipe and answer. I locks up and then I get a dialog box telling me to force kill the phone. It also into standby 10 seconds after no activity, sometimes right in the middle of trying to navigate through some menu's (slowly)

    Any insight? I haven't rooted the phone. I'm not even sure how to reset to original condition. Some one please help a poor technophobe.

    You can do a factory reset and see if that fixes it. Or you can download OCLF from the Market and use that to root your phone. It includes a lagfix that will help with the lag, but probably will not fix the force close. You probably have an app that is causing problems.

    Factory reset - settings > privacy > factory reset.

    Sometimes certain weather apps screw with your phone. Weatherbug on my old Aria made it very laggy sometimes.

    If you just got the phone a week ago, why not just exchange it and not even wonder what's going on?

    Does it do it all the time, or just that once? If you have been installing stuff, right around the time this started happening... I would start uninstalling apps based on that time period. The lag you describe is not the normal lag people mean, so the lagfix stuff is not the issue IMO.

    If it crashed every time you wanted to make a call, yes you should return that and get it done. If it is random, start with recent new application installs .
