    ME TOOO!!! All my samsung apps never worked, but the dialer did not crash until a few weeks after having the phone. This worked like a charm.

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! Verizon tried many things and nothing worked. I stopped short of the factory reset and decided to check the forums first. So glad I did.

    Setting the time from 24 hour to 12 hour fixed it! I wish I had known this before as this is the second S4 in 4 weeks with the same error of "contacts has stopped" etc....

    Try this and see if that helps: go to phone settings-->More, then select Date and Time. Change the date format to something else then change it back to the format you wanted. Save and go back. That's how I fixed my crashes on Phone and Story Album

    Thanks this worked for me, even after I sceptically sent it for 'repair'. It came back exactly the same. What I can't understand is why don't the call centres and Samsung know about this?

    I am having same issue. I have tried the date trick. It helps for a few minutes but basically I hit the phone app and the entire phone locks up.

    I have tried every single thing including full factory reset. Any other ideas gents?

    Try resetting app preferences? Settings, Apps, All, tap menu button, Reset Preferences. Good luck!

    THANK YOU! I have a Galaxy Lite. This has happened since day one. I figured that is what you get for getting the stupid slow phone. LOL. It is fine now. Thank you. How do things like this "just happen"? Thanks again. My phone thanks you too. It is being swore at a lot less

    The above solutions sadly didn't work for me on my Galaxy S2, but for the record what did work was decrypting my encrypted device.

    (This was more difficult than it should have been, probably because I'd done odd things protecting the device in the first place under one device administrator, then leaving that administrator with the device still secured. I had to first delete the Device Policy app. Then I needed to create a more secure password. And only then would my device allow me to decrypt it.)

    This process took about half an hour. When the phone came back some of the contacts were slightly messed up, but nothing terrible - just some links had got unlinked.

    I may be speaking too soon - it's been fine for about 30 minutes only. But previously errors would pop up within seconds of booting up the phone: Contacts has stopped, Calendar has stopped, Picassa has stopped. Not now. Fingers crossed it stays stable.

    Hope this helps someone else.

    I saw the suggestion to clear cache and clear data .... i.e., LOSE all of my contact data, in order to stop this problem?

    It IS a problem, as I am unable to delete outdated contact numbers & emails, & end up with a lot of false info in my contacts. very irritating!
