    Default VERY laggy iPhone
    I'm posting this in the T-Mobile section, to get some help from my fellow tmobile using buds.

    My iPhone lags terribly. I'm talking I'm waiting 15-20 seconds inbetween apps, and almost a minute to turn the damn thing on!


    What can I do to fix this? Something is hogging up my iPhone resources, I just don't know what it is!

    You guys need to use sbsettings to monitor your ram amount and find out what processes (ie safari) are running and keep them closed when you aren't using them. Also, very important that you keep an eye on mobile substrate add ons, which you can also manage by going to the "more" button in sbsettings.

    sam.c if you need help with any of this, let me know and I will walk you through it.

    I just did a full restore yesterday just to test it out right before 3.0 and the phone is awesome in completly stock form. Im almost afraid to install anything. I think maybe these phones need a good DFU restore about every 4 months to straighten them back out. What I wanna see is the first person with a 3G S to install sbsettings. LOL Whats it gonna say 155MB of free RAM available!?!?!

    I think we all have had lag issues. I finally got it working great by restoring and then monitoring every third party app I installed one by one and testing them. So many I thought were safe were hogging my RAM. Even things I rarely used.

    If use SBSettings and kill processes when not in use then you shouldn';t have any problems. And obviously don't use Backgrounder for more than one app at a time.. little things like that can have your phone stuck in slooooow mode.

    SysInfoPlus is a great tool too. U can download it in Cydia.

    I disabled mail and refuse to install any mobile substrate add ons. I have between 35-50 MB of RAM available at all times. I love it. Its almost a 3G S.

    you can force quit apps in 3.0. apps like safari and mail tend to stay open in the background.

    to force quit an app,
    -open it (so your currently in safari etc)
    -hold the sleep/wake button until the "slide to power off" slider shows up
    -then, hold down the home button for 6 seconds (or so)
    -Suddenly there will be a poof like transition, and your app will be fully closed

    We've always beens able to force quit. Safari is the only thing that stays open after you close it, other than mail and phone. You can force quit Safari, yes, but not mail or phone
