Everyone online maintains that there aren't any BB viruses and to just "pull my battery"....which I've had to do enough times to know that definitely hasn't helped the problem. PC viruses I've encountered seem to have similar symptoms...

I'm close to just taking the phone into Verizon, but thought I'd post this in case anyone has words of wisdom...
You may just be running to many apps and programs on your phone. Also if you have alot of pictures and messages in your phone this will slow it down as well. Try getting rid of all the stuff you dont need on your phone and see if that helps.

What? Why would you say such nonsense?

This is not true. A reboot is the same as a battery pull and you will not lose any data.

This could be the case. Go into Options > Status and let us know what is listed under File Free.

Sorry, what I meant was when you wipe the handheld.

yes, I can easily see how one could confuse the term "reboot" with "device wipe" as they are so similar
