    Factory reset??

    I have now had my phone for three months. Love it.

    But recently it has been getting slower, and when I play games it often lags a bit. In addition, many apps are force closing and so on...

    When I experience similar problems with my computer I usually put my mp3's on a external hard drive and re-install windows.

    What would be a analogous thing with my phone? A factory reset? Soft or hard? What's the difference? And how do I do it?!

    My contacts are saved automatically, right? What about my texts? Anyway I can save them? Any other stuff I should care about?

    Thank you, guys! Would appreciate some help! :nexusx::nexusx:

    Before going that route, have you tried a Task Killer (re: TasKiller free) to free up your memory? When your phone 'bogs down' it helps to see what is running, you begin to see a pattern, and can then identify a culprit. If you can live without the culprit, delete it.

    Bumping this one... I would appreciate some more answers.

    What should I do to speed-up my phone? I press "contacts" , and two seconds later(!!!) the app opens. Iphone is way faster....

    I agree with alphawave, before resetting you should evaluate what's running. Seriously though, slowness is very uncharacteristic of the N1.

    BTW, you don't need to 'kill all', simply examine what's running, make decisions on what larger stuff to kill...you should see immediate improvement.

    Have you tried rebooting your phone? It's definitely uncharacteristic of the NexusOne to show any slowness or lag, but sometimes a simple reboot solves those weird issues.
