Impossible to answer without knowing what's slowing it down. Have you checked to see what apps you have running?

Double ditto.

Don't rush to wipe and reload the OS if you are new at this. Look at other solutions first.

What are you doing when you perceive that it is running slow? For example, using the browser? Or what?

How much free memory is available (Options / Status) when it is slow?

Does is show edge, EDGE, gprs or GPRS in the upper right hand corner?

I doubt your call log is using much memory all things considered. But, open message folder, menu, view folder, phone call logs, and then highlight the date at the top, then menu, and delete prior.

No; the call log application IS the phone.
