Launcher Force Closes on Phone Call

    About every fifth or sixth call, my phone rings, then shows a launcher error and asks to force close. When I hit the okay button, the call is lost and the launcher force closes and resets. Anyone else have this problem?

    Are you using a completely stock phone? (By this I mean not rooted or customized beyond what VZW sold you.) Some apps, as you will read, have access to your phone call status. It is likely that a 3rd party messaging or music (or other) application is causing this.

    If you are using a purely stock phone with no apps that are allowed access to your call status I would go to a VZW store and show them your call logs and explain this.

    If not, I would revert to stock and install one app at a time (which has phone status access) until you can recreate it and discover the culprit.

    If you have rooted and set up a new ROM, I'd flash a different one or go back to stock and see what happens. I would also check the forum/thread of the developer who fashioned it as I doubt that you are alone in this situation.

    I've not seen this behavior on my phone, but I only make/receive a few calls a day. They have lasted over a couple of hours at a time...but never a problem.

    Oh, also, does it happen with the same caller or seemingly random?

    Thanks for the response. It is completely stock. I have not rooted. I will have to look at the apps I have installed, but I do not recall any that are different than my other phones other than Lightflow. I will look into disabling certain apps to see if that helps.
