After installing the last software release, ARF2, some users report experiencing com.android.phone has stopped errors randomly and repeatedly. No triage seems to permanently resolve.
Sprint and Samsung have identified the root cause and will address the issue in the next maintenance release.
The behavior is due to the way Samsung's messaging application handles long, multi-segment incoming messages.
Temporary relief from the error may be found by power cycling the handset, but until the maintenance release launches the issue could reoccur.
