Hi, when a phone freezes and run really slow, it means that memory has been affected by VIRUS.

VIRUS can damage a phone in no time. VIRUS can be caused by downloading applications on your phone through the internet, or might be from data transfer from a phone to another phone.

To remove the VIRUS, you will need to flash the phone memory. Flashing the phone will restore back the phone to it normal state.

You can use this link to see how to flash your phone

Flashing a cell phone will erase carrier data from the memory. Cellular companies can usually do this for a fee. Online buyer sites sell the software kit that will flash a cell phone from home computers.

To flash a phone you will need to rewrite the PRL file by connecting your phone to a computer with the needed equipment. Your best bet is to take your phone to a dealer that flashes phones on a regular basis. For more information


Take care.

My galaxy s2 turns off when I plug the charger in it then when it is off it charges very slow an it goes back an forth from loading an charging

Check you've closed all your apps. Make sure your up to date with latest version too. May I recommend checking how much memory you have available. when we over load our phones/tabs/computers they can't run as fast. ---Any unwanted photos or apps not really used delete them. Time saver back up photos on computer I cloud or what ever it is you use. Will go along way. Improving your storage will speed up any phone. I use to have the s3 pretty much the same really. Location services also kills your battery faster you phone does not need to constantly load where you are. I never knew this till I was told. Only activate when needed....Brightness is key aswel a lot of people put it up to full brightness even when it's not needed. This will defiantly increase anyone's battery life. Hope this helps :)

HTC Wildfire Sense not responding

I have a few questions hopefully i can help if you are still having this problem. What version of Android are you running? Are you running a task manager app if so uninstall it? Try wiping the data in HTC Sense by going ini your phones settings then go to apps then select the all tab. Go down the list until you see HTC Sense. Hit Force Stop and then clear data. Hopefully this helps. Another recommendation is an alternative launcher from the Play Store such as ADW EX or Apex Launcher. Hopefully this helps. The old HTC Sense is a resource hog and replacing the launcher will improve performance. An even bigger step would be to root the device and remove sense all together. Let me know if you need help with this.

Im not sure if its the problem or not. I have gone through 3 DROID X phones due to it locking up and being very slow. But after I received my third phone and it started in doing the same. I took it out of...

I had two Droid X phones that both locked up often. I never used a case, but I found that running custom Launchers (like LauncherPro or ADW) caused it to freeze more often. Also, if you feel that it's running slow, check to see if you have any apps that are constantly running in the background needlessly. Verizon's proprietary apps tend to do this a lot.

My huawei ascend keeps freezing up to the point i need to take out the battery, when turned back on, it works fine for about one minute before freezing up, i have deleted all apps and run an avg virus...

you may have too many apps. you only have megabytes of space on your internal sd card memory and I had to remove most of my apps and then my phone went back to almost normal. the fb for android and twitter app, and also tweetdeck freeze up your phone really bad so I am now using tweetcaster and using fb only to get my msg notifications. I am using dolphin browser and bookmarking fb to use instead, which works really well. no chat though. I know this because I just spent 2 hours fixing my phone, removing apps, trying things out. hope that helps you.
