Hi there, I saw your comment on the other thread but decided to reply here. If you have reflashed the stock rom and its crashing at the lock screen you only have two choices really. 1: Try a custom rom like cyanogenmod 7 to see if the lighter rom runs on your old hardware. 2: Give up on the phone.

I accept that 2 may not be what you want to hear but this device is very old now (in phone years) and a lot of the services that used to support it well, like the android market (Google play) do not really support this device. If you only really want to use the phone for phone calls a cheap "dumb" phone will perform much better than this device in that regard.

If you do want to try though, cm7 is your best bet as it gave the best "performance"on this device back in its hayday.

Best of luck.
