Contact Lag When Text Messaging

Has anybody else noticed in their DNA that it takes a good 3-5 seconds to load a contact when first creating a text message? Drives me crazy! Is there any way to fix that and speed it up?

I posted a thread about this a few months ago. It seemed dumb that it took so long to load text messages. Nobody was able to give a solution, I tried removing some of my old contacts and got my number of contacts down to like 85, and it didn't help at all.

I installed a ROM and the problem was fixed. I didn't experience this issue on PACman, Viper, or my current ROM CM10.1
