    Last night my phone abruptly began to lag and now I am no longer able to access basic features like Messaging, Settings and Internet Explorer. Screen just turns black for about 10 secs when I select either one and goes back to the previous app used. Reaction to soft keys, and lock/unlock button is also very slow now. I've soft-reset the phone about 10 times now since that seems to be the only way to get into my SMS menu, and after the one time it won't allow me to get back in again. Very aggravating, any input & help is appreciated.

    If you've already soft reset and that didn't fix it, either do a battery pull if possible (prolly won't work if soft reset didn't) or last resort, hard reset. And if a hard reset still doesn't work then take it in if you're still under warranty

    Was thinking about doing a hard reset. Will it wipe everything out? After playing with it more it seems that anything first party (email, ie, SMS, settings) is now completely inaccessible, but third party apps work just fine. Thanks!

    it will delete everything, but if you have a backup into your microsoft account, it will save most things.. photos you can easily pass to pc and then to your phone.. contacts are in microsoft's account and such as apps, I guess you only lose game datas basically
