Sudden errors - different kinds!

    Yesterday, my Galaxy started experiencing a strange error with every incoming call. I'd see an error box appear and then it would ask me force close and something else I don't remember. I can dial out, but I cannot answer calls and have to force close the phone app. Then I'd see the signal icon turn into that circle-backslash symbol just for a second or two, then the bars would return. Whatever's going on, incoming calls are crashing the phone app and forcing the phone to re-establish the cell signal.

    And today, I went to use a third-party camera app and it asked me to force close twice. So I tried the core camera app, and it, too, asked me to force close.

    I use Avast and it hasn't alerted me to a virus or anything. I have it scanning my SD card right now, though. Can anyone help me out? Thank you!

    Stigy Some say...

    Have you installed any apps recently that you can uninstall to see if it fixes your issue?

    Unfortunately besides that my only suggestion is a Factory Reset of the device as that should reset everything back to original settings and get rid of all of your errors.

    Please ensure you have contacts sync'd to GMail before performing the reset though.
