chgoguy80 Posted June 17, 2013 Share Posted June 17, 2013 My S3 the last 2 days has been acting crazy. Hopefully someone has a suggestion, guessing something in the system software got messed up somehow since I get messages from different apps that have not been updated recently as far as I know.Coincidence had shortly before that day installed an for Bellycard from googleplay (which is a real venture capital backed company for customer loyalty) so don't think its a virus/malicious. The first download via link they sent failed, so had to restart it. Following that it finished the install fine.Yesterday after getting failure messages from other apps, I uninstalled it and restarted the phone, also fully turned off and turned back on same issues.The messages I get so far are:"unfortunately, email has stopped" - this occurs randomly even when not in mail"the process com.android.phone has stopped" - been getting this 2 out of 3 times I try and make a phone call, happened after I hit call screen goes dark for about 3 seconds and message appears, call does not go thru"unfortunately, maps has stopped" - this happens everytime I try and use navigation, I have successfully used maps to get directions but failure occurs when hit the navigate button. It even happens when I manually go into navigation and type the destination and hit the search button. Just like phone, the screen goes dark for 3 seconds and message appears. This error just came up now when not in maps.Background, I know people say you can backup stuff on phone but have not figured how to do that and would really like to save stuff if I have to clear the phone if possible?Also I am running stock with nothing I'd think are "exotic" applications. Baseband version L710VPBMD4, Android version 4.1.2 and as far as I know has not changed at least in last couple weeks. fyi, have never had an SD card installed and still have 7.35GB of 11.95GB free so plenty storage, App manager says 747MB used, 847MB free so enough Ram it would seem. Don't go in apps much but only one that I do not recognize is something called PageBuddyNotiSvc. Tried stopping it and Nav still gives same error.Any gurus here have any ideas? This is my 1st smartphone so do not even know if Sprint tech support will help with software issues? I am still paying the whatever it is $11 or $12 equipment protection if that makes a difference?fyi, 90% of my usage is as a phone, nav, internet browser so phone is not very useful/dependable now. If you need more info or screenshots, let me know.Thanks in advance,Bob Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
