A have a problem with my ChaCha. For some time now it has started to run very badly, I can't listen to music because it start to work slowly. When unlocking it, the same thing happens. Any idea what might be happening and what I could do to make it work like before?!

I would be really grateful..

I found this on google forum please let us know if it helped.
it has alreadt helped one user.

Solution for HTC CHAHCA android 2.3.3.

Dear all,
My GF's phone had the same problem. I've been reading this thread and tried all of the proposed solutions (Blue-tooth on, Fast Reboot(99cent), sense options off, even did a Factory reset) but none worked. Somewhere, I can't recall where, I found an other work-around, and it looks like it works for us.
Since all other solutions didn't work for us, I'm not sure this one will for everybody.
Here it is:

- Download the App "Proximity Screen Off" (by Shailesh Soliwal).
- open it(see note below) and select the box for "Enable Device Admin" (give permission).
- "Disable in Landscape" selected.
- "Enable during call only" NOT selected.
- Both "Cover..." boxes are NOT selected.
- "Disable Accidental Lock MUST be selected.
- For "Timeout", we have 1 second.
- Press the "back" button on the phone.
- Chose "Start Service".

Running 2 days now and battery usage is back to normal.
Good luck, hope it helps you all. If so, let Google know.
Hopefully with the next update it's solved.

Note: The app also comes with a nice "ScreenOff" shortcut you can place on the desktop. Not to be mistaken with the "ProximityScreenOff" app itself when opening :)

I'm keeping my fingers cross that this works till Google fixes this bug.:(

HTC Chacha is a great phone. Its been 6mos since I bought one. QWERTY keypad + touchscreen is the best. I had a full touchscreen phone once but its so hard to create a txt or email. Easy with HTC Chacha. I know that battery life is so short. My resolution, I bring my USB cord everyday. I charge at home or at work. If you love applications that require a full touchscreen phone, this is not the phone for you. Only apps I use are facebook, twitter, Market, Gmail, antivirus, color flashlight, photoshake apps2sd, equalizer, angry birds. BUt im more on txt messaging and calling. If there's another HTC Chacha type phone avail here, I'll definitely buy one.

Chacha is a good phone in many ways ..but

The internal storage of chacha is included the sd card , which mean even i move all my download apps to sd card , it still influence to my internal storage...512 is not enough for user that love to download many apps ... no matter how large is your sd card .. when your internal storage lower than 20mb.. sync stop ..... and you probably cant download anymore apps..
