I have the same problems. The Pre-2 runs slow and just stalls opening apps and trying to use them. When I compare it to my Pre Plus, the Pre Plus is much faster with similar apps and patches loaded. I think there was a reason why 2.2.4 was not ported to the sub Pre-2's, it would have brought them to their knees. On the contrary, I have a Pre-3 with similar apps and patches and there is no comparison. It is very quick. The difference is in the hardware is my guess. I read the posts here and I checked to see if I am logged into Skype, I am not. So, that is not the reason my Pre-2 is slow.

My Pre-2 gets really slow of course when I have of course many cards open (8 or more) or when I start stacking them. These apps are not complex ones, memo, task along with phone, msg, email. Also, when I open up Music Remix player, that really taxes the software. I can have Remix playing music, Navit GPS running and that is about all it can do. If I open anything else up, it really bogs down and you have to wait a long time for apps to load and work.
Other than the speed, I really love the Pre-2. I have a Pre-3 but not ready to go with that yet. I think once my kids Pre-plus's die or get damaged, I will give them my Pre-2 and then I will migrate over to the Pre-3 full time. However, I can already predict they will not be happy with the lag and sluggishness of the Pre-2 compared to their Pre-Plus's.
If anyone has anyother suggestions or recommendations, I would be really interested in trying them to improve the speed of my Pre-2.
