How to Fix Process COM Android MMS Has Stopped Error on Android?

Author:Jake | TIME:October 30,2017


For the last 2 days I have read and researched typical problems related to this error message: "Sorry the application Message (process com.android.mms) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. Force Close". I have tried any solution I've found, but am still unable to resolve the issue. I can only attribute the problem to deleting a few bloatapps, namely Social Hub... as it seems everything went sideways after uninstalling.

 

In addition to SMS (Short Message Service), you can also use MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) to keep in touch with your families, friends and anyone you know, as long as you have their phone numbers. However, there are chances that you could come across the error saying: "Sorry the application Message (process com.android.mms) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. Force Close".

 

So what is com Android MMS? Actually it is a package name. All android apps have a package name (as well as use potentially many package names internally). Package names are used to differentiate apps that have the same name (and to organize source code internally). When an app is installed on the Android device, the app is placed to this path (.../com/android/mms/). That is why the package looks backwards, so that apps that share the beginning portions of the package name can be near each other (like .../com/android/plus/, or whatever). And in general, you are not able to browse through this section of the file system without rooting the Android device.

 

Solutions to COM Android MMS Error

Nevertheless, once you are encountered with this com android mms error, you are not able to read or send text messages on this Android phone. So you may try below methods to check if they can fix the problem.

 

Method 1: Restart Your Android Phone

The most direct and easiest way is to restart the Android phone. Although restarting the device does not always fix everything, it does sometimes help solve many problems you may encounter with Android. You can power off and then power on the device. And if the phone is frozen, you can follow below:

 

1. Press the phone’s sleep of power button for few seconds. After you hold down the power button for few seconds, it will ask you if you want to turn off the device.

2. Don’t release the power button and keep holding down the power button till the phone shuts down and the screen goes off.

3. Once the phone is off, you can now release the power button.

4. Now start the phone again by holding down the power button till the phone screen comes on.

 

 

Method 2: Delete All Messages and Clear Caches to Free Up Space

The lack of storage may also lead to the “process com.android.mms” error. Therefore, you can try deleting all messages and clear caches on your Android so as to free up space. You can delete messages and clear caches manually, but it takes time and it’s not complete. You may do this by using cFone Android Data Eraser. This erasing app is perfect when you need to erase Android for resale or giveaway. With this software, you can one click clear Android data without recovery possibility.
