Why does the error appear in the com.Android.Phone application
There are several reasons for the error with com.Android.Phone:
- Various random crashes in the Phone app.
- The cache of the Phone app or its associated system functions is full.
- The virus can affect the Phone application and cause it to malfunction.
- The application may be corrupted by the user.
- The Phone application is not compatible with any other applications on the device that use the phone’s functionality in one way or another.
Ways to fix the error
First reboot the device. This will help if the error occurred due to a full cache or some kind of accidentally encountered bug.
If the reboot did not help, you have to rummage around.
Cleaning temporary files
- Open the “Settings” menu. “Applications”. “Phone” (or “Call”);
- We erase the data and clear the application cache;
- To be sure, download programs like CCleaner and use it to clean your smartphone from the remnants of temporary files;
In the “Applications” section, you can clear the cache and data of the “Phone” application (or “Call”)
If the problem persists, proceed to the next step.
Disabling the date and time synchronization function
- Open the “Settings” menu. “Language, time, keyboard”;
- We find the item “Date and time of the network”, uncheck;
In the “Language, time, keyboard” section, you can disable the synchronization of the date and time with the date and time of the network
If the problem is still not resolved, most likely it is a virus.
Install antivirus software from the Google Play Market and perform a deep scan of the device. Remove any viruses found.
You can do without anti-virus for Android. Connect the smartphone to the computer in USB storage mode. And scan the device’s hard drive with computer antivirus. Due to the fact that the source code of mobile and desktop viruses is similar to each other, stationary anti-virus can scan and remove malware on your mobile device.
If the device does not have important data, or you are ready to save it somewhere, try to reset it to the factory settings. A complete reset will delete all data, and along with it the virus. This is called Hard Reset and is done as follows:
- Open the Settings menu. “Recovery and reset.” On the page, select “Reset Settings”.
Resetting the device to the factory settings can be done in the “Recovery and reset” section.
By clicking “Reset phone settings”, you will run Hard Reset: all data will be deleted
You can reset your settings through Recovery Mode. To enable Recovery mode, turn off the device and hold down the power and volume down buttons. Hold them until the manufacturer logo appears on the screen. For some devices, Recovery turns on in another way, find out on the Internet specifically for your model of smartphone or tablet. In the Recovery menu, find the wipe data item (either Clear Data, or something similar). Click on it, then click Yes and check the Delete User Data box. And reboot the device.
You can start the reset in Recovery Mode: select wipe data / factory reset
So, if com.Android.Phone still gives an error after removing viruses, you can try to reflash the device. To do this, download the latest system update for your device from the official site, place the downloaded zip archive in the root folder of the device and enable Recovery Mode. In Recovery Mode, click Install zip from sdcard (or something similar depending on the model of the device; more specific instructions for flashing can be found on the website of the manufacturer of your device). Then follow the instructions on the screen (usually you just need to click the “OK” button), do not forget to check the Wipe data box to delete data from the device, otherwise errors may remain.
If flashing the device is unacceptable for you, and the error cannot be fixed in any other way, try installing a “dialer” from Google Play. There are a lot of options in the market, pick up to your taste and install.
What to do so that the problem no longer appears
Do not install applications from untrusted sources on your device, so as not to pick up a virus. A smartphone or tablet should not be cluttered with useless applications, since all of them leave behind not deleted temporary files and an uncleaned cache, which loads and harms the device. Use CCleaner or similar to clear the cache and junk files.

At the heart of the Android mobile operating system is another, reliable and safe system. Linux. But even this fact, unfortunately, does not guarantee perfect work. One of the striking examples of failures in the functioning of the system is the system message “An error occurred in the application” (in the English version of “The process has stopped”), after which the program simply crashes and has to be restarted.
There may be several reasons for the appearance of such a problem. Here the possible culprit may be a mobile device, its hardware or software components, or the application in which the error appears, and the method for eliminating it depends on this.
To get started, just reload your gadget. Perhaps a one-time failure and after the restart of Android it will disappear.
Also, be sure to check if there is free space in the phone or tablet. Many programs and especially games are very sensitive to this. This happened to me with the client YouTube, Vkontakte and Navitel.
It’s also worth visiting the official page of this application on the Google Play Store.
1. Data cleaning
If all of the above does not help, then we will approach the solution more thoroughly. Let’s try to clear the cache and temporary data. To do this, go to System Settings and select the “Applications” section:
Open the “Everything” tab, find in the list the program in which errors pop up and click on it to get such a menu:
If it works, then first click on the “Stop” button. Next, click on “Clear Cache”, and then on “Erase Data”. We reboot the phone and check. Thus, it is possible to correct errors in most cases. Especially often this helps if games crash.
2. Reinstalling software
When clearing the temporary data does not help, you can try reinstalling the program. To do this, open the Play Store again, find the desired utility and click the “Delete” button.
After that, we reboot your tablet or smartphone and install it again. This method also removes previous versions of the software that remain after the update and sometimes can cause conflicts.
3. Reset to factory settings
This option is the most dramatic, but you have to use it from time to time when nothing else helps. Especially often it is necessary to resort to it if in Android with the message “An error occurred in the application”, system components such as Google Play services, market, process.Media, phone, contacts, com.Google.Process.Gapps, etc. Begin to fly out in bulk.
To make “Factory Reset” on your mobile device. Go to the settings and find the “Recovery and reset” section. There will be a “Reset Settings” item. We select it and then follow the instructions of the wizard.
This operation usually fixes errors in the Android operating system itself due to which malfunctions in the installed software may occur.

This can only be done if your model has a similar clean firmware. No other way.
