    When I type in Safari or Atomic or even click links there is about a 1 second delay, which is huge. Is this happening to anyone else? It started a few weeks ago and the update didn't help.

    This may sound odd, but have you tried clearing your history?

    :eek: WOW a whole SECOND? Unacceptable..
    Lol try to clear your history/cache/cookies. Close all running apps, and restart your phone. If that doesn't help, restore as new and I'm 99% sure it'll be fixed

    You try clicking a letter on your keypad while typing and count ONE MISSISSIPPI and then watch the letter appear. One second is HUGE lag time on an electronic device.

    One thought that I think has worked for me in the past. Double-click the home button to get to the fast-app switching. Hold down an icon, wait for the shake, and hit that X on every app currently 'open.' Then restart the device.

    I don't think those 'open' apps are supposed to be taking any memory or anything while in that state, but I don't believe it. Even restarting the phone doesn't clear those.

    That's the only thing I can suggest. I have had that lag before, and it is highly annoying.

    I had a similar problem with my iPad when I was using atomic web browser. I cleared out the cache and history and bingo, the lag was fixed. Nothing else worked that I tried. I would start typing a URL and could type out most of it before the text would finally appear.
