Recommendations for Unfortunately the process com.android.phone has stopped issue

 #1:- By clearing the data
Surfing internet we could find that many people recommend to do a data clear to resolve this issue. In your android smartphone, it is very easy to clear data. For clearing data,

  • Go to Settings
  • Application Manager
  • Choose All Application
  • Below Contacts Storage choose “Clear all data”.

You can also try a factory reset of your mobile phone to resolve this. Do factory reset only if the first method didn’t worked for you. For performing a factory reset,

  • Go to Settings
  • Backup & reset
  • factory Reset

Doing a factory reset will delete all of your data and applications. So be careful to do a backup if you are proceeding with this step.
#3: Changing the OS
This is recommended to those are facing Unfortunately the process com.android.phone has stopped message after updating their device or changing the static os to a custom version. In market there are hundreds of beautiful Custom ROM available. Most of them are created by geeks who have no connection with official android developers. This may result in slight errors to the Operating System code. So if some one installs it, there will be these kind of basic issues. So we recommend to change the os again to another customized version or to the official android version.
If any of the solutions mentioned above worked for you, please comment below. Your comments are our boosters to go ahead. You are also welcome to write to us if it doesn’t works. Don’t forget to share and encourage us.

This is another solution, that worked for many guyz. So many people commented and mailed me that, Disabling the automatic date will solve this issue. Try your luck.
