    I uninstalled Lookout too. I thought it slowed my EVO down as well.

    I decided to work with Plan B, which does not need to be on my device till I need it.

    Wonder if there is some interaction between Lookout and the Evo? Sense UI? I really have had no performance hits on my Nexus One.

    On my Captivate, which had 2.1 at the time, Lookout was a disaster. It was so slow and jerky that it was just not useable, and removing Lookout fixed it immediately. YMMV, but I won't use it again.

    It hasn't slowed down my Evo that I've noticed, but I'm rooted and not running the stock ROM or kernel anymore.

    I don't know how the rest of you have it configured, but I'm not using the backup feature of Lookout, I have it configured to scan new apps/updates when they're installed, and I think it does a full scan once a week. And that's it.

    Maybe it's set to scan daily or it's doing daily backups or something...???

    When I used it, I didn't use the scan feature at all. All I used was phone finder service.

    I am rooted but still on stock, though.

    I use scan, back-up, etc. No performance hits. Can't remember if I had 2.1 when I started, but was certainly fine on stock Froyo and Gingerbread.
