Some uses have reported some slowness. Restoring the iPod usually helps.

I went and downloaded the latest version of iTunes and done a complete restore of my iPod and I still have the same problem.i don't have any apps running in the background and my iPod is terrible.Even typing this I have to wait after touching a letter for a couple seconds foitabs letter to appear.And don't even think about looking thru eBay listings.It worked fast and flawlessly for 3yrs until I downloaded the new OIS 5.1.1,I don't know why apple can't fix this if there such geniuses.If they can't fix this I will never buy anything apple again.I want to throw this out in the street and run it over as poor as it works now.It's no good to me now.Thanks Apple

There is something wrong with your installation. I run iOS 5.1.1 on my iPod Touch 3rd gen and I don't have any performance problem at all.

How can you install it wrong when all you do is tap on the software update button once and everything else is automatically delivered by apple,and if apple messed up that day how do I correct that without losing everything? I'm afraid if I clear the entire iPod I will lose everything and it will still be the same as it is now.I have read enough today to know I'm just one of many that has this problem.I was told by apple on the phone today that I was the first person that had called with this problem.Thats hard for me to believe after reading all the posts here with this same issue.Doesn't someone from apple even read these posts?

- Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
- Reset all settings
Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
- Restore from backup. See:
- Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.
If still problem, make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store since it appears you have a hardware problem.
