How To Fix Unfortunately Contacts Has Stopped On Android Phone

Recommended Posts

Android users may occasionally see an error on their device saying “unfortunately contacts has stopped.” This error usually happens when they are about ready to receive a call or open their phone app, though it could also happen at other times. While it’s largely been identified as a problem with its cache, there may be other reasons why it is happening. Some reports say it’s likely to happen after downloading a system update.
