    Thanks to you Mustang and B. Diddy for trying to help me with this. I'll post back with a solution if I find one so you both have it.

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? Which process is stopping, or is it multiple ones?

    It's possible that some app you keep reinstalling is causing the instability.

    Hi I am having a similar problem

    Phone: LG G6
    Process stopping: com.android.phone

    It stops every two to three seconds making it a pain to try and do anything and causing the phone to heat up rapidly.

    Welcome to Android Central! Does this persist after a reboot? Or in Safe Mode? https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-34097

    Sounds like you installed a App through APK that's not compatible.

    It does persist after power down and restart. I haven't reset the phone yet as I am trying to preserve the contacts and photos for my mother. I was able to get into safe mode following the directions you linked B. Diddy.

    With the screen on, press and hold the Power key. (Pass)
    In the options menu that displays, press and hold Power off. (Pass)
    Restart in Safe mode' displays, tap OK to restart in Safe mode. (Pass)
    Upon restart, device displays 'Safe mode' at bottom of screen. (Pass)

    The error continues even in safe mode, and com.android.message popped up once as well.

    Sounds like you installed a App through APK that's not compatible.
    She shouldn't have been able to as i never enabled developer mode and she only gets apps out of google Play. She did recently install a new puzzle app, Woody.

    That's strange , usually I've seen that when trying add not compatible app or flash the firmware with not full files ..

    Yeah similar.

    Phone: LG G6
    Process stopping: com.android.phone

    It stops every two to three seconds making it a pain to try and do anything and causing the phone to heat up rapidly. Like I posted above for B. Diddy, I can get to safe mode, but it still continues. Also I had com.android.messenger (i think) pop up and stop working once as well, but com.android.phone is constant fail every few seconds.

    No, how would I do that? I tried clearing a few apps of their cache but how would I do the whole phone?

    No, not for the whole phone. I meant the app called "Phone." Go to Settings>Apps​, select Phone, then Storage, then Clear Cache/Clear Data (If possible). If you don't see the Phone app listed, you might have to tap Menu>Show System first.

    The closest thing I can find is an app called "Phone and Message Storage"
