if your phone is currently "stuck" trying to download an app that cannot download, each time you use it, it may be hogging resources trying to complete that action.

otherwise, if you think you're having system issues; well you didn't mention trying a re-doctoring. that's one of the best things about this phone. look into redoctoring. if you have Preware customizations, you'll have to take steps to save/restore them first.
you can reset apps and data, or you can completely redoctor, before considering a phone replacement as required. this info is here in the forum. but the Pre2 is a pretty resilient phone.
