What is the LG IMS App keeps stopping?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

The LG IMS App is an essential system app on LG phones that is responsible for handling WiFi calling and VoLTE (Voice over LTE) services. However, sometimes users may encounter an error message stating “LG IMS keeps stopping” on their devices. This error can be quite frustrating as it may prevent you from using these important features.

The exact reason for the LG IMS App to keep stopping can vary, but it is often related to software glitches or conflicts. It could be due to a recent software update, a compatibility issue with other apps, or even a temporary system glitch.

When the LG IMS App keeps stopping, it can disrupt your ability to make WiFi calls or use VoLTE services. WiFi calling allows you to make phone calls over a WiFi network instead of relying on a cellular network, which can be particularly useful in areas with poor cellular coverage. VoLTE, on the other hand, enables high-quality voice calls over the 4G LTE network.

To resolve the “LG IMS keeps stopping” error, you can try disabling the LG IMS App on your phone. This will prevent the app from running and potentially causing any further issues. Here’s how you can do it:

1. Open the phone’s dialer app.
2. Dial the following code: 277634#*#

This code will open the hidden Service Menu on your LG phone. Please note that the exact code may vary depending on your specific LG model, so it’s always a good idea to check the specific code for your device.

3. Once you enter the code, you should see the Service Menu appear on the screen.
4. Look for an option called “LTE IMS Settings” or something similar. It may be located under the “Network” or “Call” section.
5. Tap on the “LTE IMS Settings” option to access its settings.
6. In the IMS settings, you should find an option to disable the IMS App or something similar. Toggle this option to disable the LG IMS App.
7. After disabling the app, exit the Service Menu and restart your phone.

Disabling the LG IMS App should stop the error message from appearing and potentially resolve any issues related to WiFi calling and VoLTE. However, please note that disabling the app may also disable the corresponding services. If you rely on WiFi calling or VoLTE, you may want to consider alternative troubleshooting methods or seek assistance from LG support or your mobile carrier.

The “LG IMS keeps stopping” error can be frustrating, but disabling the LG IMS App can help alleviate the issue. However, it’s important to note that disabling the app may also disable WiFi calling and VoLTE services. If you need these features, consider exploring other troubleshooting options or seeking help from the appropriate support channels.
