    Hi Guys.

    My phone has been running smooth as hell but today and now the touchscreen is a bit off... It like... If I swipe to a different screen it will jolt and show half of the next page and then come back quickly. The multi-task bar takes 4-5 seconds to load up.
    I just have lag in general.

    Whats going on? I am restoring now but I don't know if it will fix the problem

    I had the same problem with 4.2.1. What helped me though was to shut down the apps running in the multi-task bar. It doesn't have to be all of them but just a portion of them, and I noticed my iPhone was working great again as normal.

    It is probably a memory issue.

    Just like a computer your iPhone allocates so much memory that can run low if too many programs are running. I use AppSwitch app (99 cents) that shows me how much memory is being used. All I know is that my iPhone 4 was very laggy with 4.2. For example, I would have to hit my home button twice before my screen would move. After I shut down programs in my multi-task bar my iPhone was very responsive again with no more lag.

    I'm having "some" lag issues as well plus battery draining a lot faster and photo not displaying properly.
    I'm doing a restore and so should you, just make sure you sync and back your phone up before you do anything.

    In my case it is, and I'm not the only one, but I never noticed a big lag like you're saying, that's why you should try JW solution first and see how it goes
