Ok here's the fast version...
My VZW P+ had 'e' key issues, and was Out of warranty. After 3 calls and a trip to the store, I managed haggle a little, and then was able to get one off their website free after the rebate, with my New Every 2 discount and unlimited data plan intact. Cool, right? Well, so I thought. I can still wait for the P3 (if), with no harm done. I thought the slowness and such was a hardware issue, but now wonder. Yes the P2 is fast, when it's fast, but there are times...
The 2 has moments where it just STOPS dead cold, for about 15-20 seconds, and I don't know what that's about. When the P+ did that I was convinced it was busy doing background network stuff and had priority set wrong. But now I wonder, maybe it's something else, cause the P2 does it, and worse. Maybe my profile is corrupt. It hangs when an app finishes loading (glowing), just before it starts, and hangs random other times. But what's new is that it hangs in the middle of apps (sucks for games). My Plus NEVER did that. The reticle stays on the screen for 15-20seconds, then it catches up with itself. And yes, all the profile updates and downloads are done. I am culling all the software that is unneeded or just won't work with 2.x. I don't have it in dev mode or any patches at all yet.
Thank you in advance.
