UR problems of slower performance is due to low memory or infection of virus in ur phone and memory card.
U must try to format the phone n MMC.
To format MMC, go to memory card option in extras in MENUS.
Go to its option and click on format command.
To format phone, u need to turn off the phone. press and hold 3 buttons ( green dial button + * + 3 ) and turn on the phone. but hold 3 buttons until fomatting screen appears. it will format the phone. But u need to install the additional softwares urself. (it does not erase the permanent apps like camera, mp3 players, etc).
Or, u may scan ur phone and MMC with help of latest updated anitvirus programmes.
please kindly send me feedback.

Hi correction 3230.....

The above 3 problems ( automatic MMS sending, slow performance, auto restart, etc) can be solved by formatting.
The process for formatting is :
1) turn on the phone
2) press and hold the 3 buttons ( green dial button + * + 3 button ) and turn on the phone.
3) hold 3 buttons until formatting screen appears.
4) after formatting, it asks for restart.
5) after restart, ur phone is ready as in the 1st bought form .

looking for ur kind feedback
