Have had my Nexus S for about a year. I have downloaded the latest firmware and software versions. Suddenly (have not installed anything new), I am getting errors (google.process.gapps has stopped, etc.) or freezes every couple of hours. I have uninstalled all add-on applications, did not help.
I reset the phone to factory default, did not help.
I reset the phone and cleared SD card, did not help.
I have cleared caches, no help.
I heard it may be market or calendar data, so cleared those data, no help.
Anyone have any ideas what more I can do to troubleshoot this phone?
Sorry for the inconvenience. I would suggest you to try these steps.It is a memory issue with any sync capable Google application and particular to Google Calendar app. Any interruption in the sync causes a corruption or critical errors that the auto-sync tries to rectify but has no built in support to fix the error.Solution: Go to Menu> Settings> Applications> All Applications> Open Calendar, Calendar Sync and Calendar Storage one by one and select clear data. This might erase the calendar entries and you will have to sync the calendar again.
I already tried that, it didn't help. Also went through and cleared data from all apps.
I also went in and stopped the sync process in calendar and email, but the errors still come up every 1-2 hours.
My problems started the same way after updating. You will get these errors more and more everyday until the phone no longer works, and get ready to pay $34 + tax at the Sprint store to get it repaired even if it's still under warranty.
After all the problems I had with the Samsung Moment, and now this, if what you are saying is true I'm never buying another Samsung.
It just happened, my Nexus S is now freezing on the start screen. I'm done with Samsung phones.
Does anyone know how to do a hard reset for the Nexus S 4g?
my wife's phone started acting up like this the other week. I initially did the factor reset within settings. Everything seemed fine that night. next day, numerous messages popping up that phone app has stopped, google process has stopped/etc. So i called sprint & they had me do the #*..... reset using the MSL number. Turn the phone on today, nothing but the bottom 4 buttons light up so i pulled the battery. THen my wife said the stopped message kept popping up. I did some googling of the issue and this seems to be happening a lot with other Nexus S users. seems like an ICS issue? Very annoying. I might try taking her phone back to gingerbread.
