    Almost every day, I get a random message on the S5 saying "contacts has stopped". Any idea on what that means?

    How can I prevent this message from coming up?

    Please help. Thanks.

    I get the same message, anywhere from 5-10 times a day, it's becoming very annoying.

    My note 4 has been giving the same message two or three times per day for the past few weeks. I cleared cache then data for contacts app but still get the message. I don't know.....

    Since Lollipop I've been getting that message. Annoying but it does not stop the phone working.

    Same issues since the latest software update.... many of my apps are reporting errors as well such as google services. Anyone got any advice besides down grade to kit kat again?

    Me too!!! Ugh it's so frustrating!!! I just got my S5 in January & the glitches are out of control. The screen freezes, internet browsing is slow & my calls drop. I'm ready to do a factory reset if I can't figure out how to fix my issues with the phone.

    Just another in the long line of problems with the latest version of Andriod. Wish I had never bought this phone. No one at Samsung seems to care about when these issues will get fixed, if ever

    I get this constantly. Very annoying. Hoping 5.1 solved these issues.

    Try disabling Google+. I read some people were having good luck with that. I just did it, so not sure yet if it works for me.

    Did you guys make sure you have latest update? I bought my G900F 2 weeks ago, updated to Lolipop right after unboxing. However I also got those annoying "Contacts has stopped" day by day, along with having no mute mode in sound option. Then after a few days I manually checked for new updates, which I turned off for battery saving, and realised there was another update. After flashing I have never seen that error again, and I have mute option for my phone.

    So I guess Samsung already has the fix for this error.

    Its been a couple of days now and I noticed the phone is a lot faster and no more contact problems and I believe the battery life is better

    I did the post Lollipop update as well and I still get the contacts stopped message. No more updates available at the moment.

    My S5 freezes on the lock screen and I get the contacts stopped working error message a few times each day since Lollipop. I can't say I'm a an android or samsung fan any longer. Will be looking elsewhere come contract renewal.

    Try disabling Google+. I did that and haven't had any problems. Its like a new phone, faster, longer battery life and no errors.

    Ok first what firmware have you got ?
    Is this unbranded or Branded ? As some Branded have gone with RCS eg Vodafone and replaced the contacts and message app with there own
    causing issues
    Allso how are your contacts store eg via Google or sim or phone i switched to google and have no issues on stock UK BTU firmware
    But i no and fixed Network Roms that have this so why are networks wanting to no our contacts ???
    There is no repoted issues with stock Samsung Roms so it does point the finger at Networks and what are they upto ???
    one work aroud is take of Auto sync and when you sync do this via wifi

    I wonder if anyone knows why Google+ causes the issue? I use Google+ on occasion, so not sure I want to inactivate it myself, but could a new Google+ version fix it?

    I cleared my cache and data on Google+ then uninstalled updates and after that re-downloaded the current version of Google+. So far so good for today.

    The uninstall of Google+ is also working for me so far although it's only been a day...

    I think the mistake was you reinstalled Google+. I was thinking about doing that myself so I guess I am glad I didn't. My phone is still working great since I disable it.
