    Is the phone getting stuck while switching between home screens, or stuttering while swiping up or down? Mine was doing this, as well as the "Unfortunately, Contacts Has Stopped". Anyway, this doesn't make sense to me, but my storage was completely full...SD card & internal memory. So I formatted the SD card and did a factory reset and it's been perfect. I'm trying to keep media on the SD card only...so far so good.

    I get this on a Galaxy Nexus running Jelly Bean. I think it has happened intermittently since I tried to improve my contacts photos with HaxSync. You can clear it up for a couple of weeks by the following process:
    - settings
    - apps
    - swipe across to "all"
    - contacts storage
    - clear data

    note: your contacts will be wiped. This is OK as long as you are online and sync them to Google. They will reappear shortly.

    I thought the phone only supported 32gb cards?

    64gb cards can be used if they are reformatted to fat32, if i remember correctly.

    Remove the Bulky sync address account and it will be fine. For me it works, i remove the gmail and it is working smoothly.

    Hi there, I'm getting the same error when I try to access my contacts. Unfortunately, I cannot find "contacts storage" under applications manager / all. I see "contacts". How can I recover this app? Thanks

    Your fix doesn't work at all.

    To see if the fix has worked you need to test it. Test it as follows:

    To Reproduce Bug

    1. Go to Settings (press bottom left button on phone) and then select Settings
    2. Go to Accounts and sync
    3. Select xandrani@gmail.com (Google, not Dropbox)
    4. In the Data and synchronization list deselect everything accept Sync Contacts
    5. Click the Sync now button
    6. Press the home key (middle button at the bottom of the phone)
    7. Then start the Contacts app
    8. Wait for the Contacts app to crash (the phone may temporarily freeze)

    We were all warned about the inferior performance now we pay the price. The constant interruption and inconsistencies of the contact function is unacceptable

    Thumbs up Re: Unfortunately, contacts has stopped

    hi all, im aware that this post is just under a year old and i had the same problem..
    pleased to say that i managed to over come this issue by simply installing 'Go Contacts Ex'
    i first tried to fix the problem by simply installing another 3rd party app but didn't solve it, but go contacts ex did..
    just wanted to put it out there for anyone else who comes across with this problem..

    good luck

    Wow, I was warned it would be faster and it was! Guess you should get a more optimistic warner! :-)

    I did none of those things and mine crashed....still I don't know entirely what triggers this failure. But here's how I fixed it: None of these recommendations are right. Just go to the place where you view ALL apps in your phone...and you will need to look near the bottom of the list despite the alphabetical order for disabled apps to find the app called Contacts Storage. You will see that it is disabled. So ENABLE it. And go on with your life.

    Of course, a hard reset will fix it temporarily but what a pain in the **** that is, and you lose a lot of things when you do that. It is the lazy support suggestion for a fix...my fix is not going to be permanent, I suspect. However it takes a few seconds to do and it brings it back into operation immediately with no data loss what-so-ever. Now the bug that causes this must be defined and fix for a permanent solution but meanwhile this works very well.

    Kudos to Hasan,
    i havent had my android long after being a devoted iphone user for years..the screen just got too small lol but to have my phone tell me that i cant add a contact???? omg! Contacts stopped? wth?
    but i tried Hasans recommendation and downloaded Go Contacts Ex and it only took a second, all my contacts instantly appeared there and i can GUESS WHAT??? i can ADD new ones!

    Samsung are you listening at all???

    Why we should have to do this god only knows but thank you Hasan...

    oh and Joanne, your recommendation doesnt work for me ..i dont have an app called Contacts Storage..so thats that on that one...

    While this does address the issue to an extent in that you are now using a new contacts icon/platform, the bug still persists should you try to click on the old default phone icon and try and make a call. Not that you need to that now!
