[Q] Q: contacts crash (com.android.phone, android.proces.acore crashing)

Symptoms:
start the phonebook, try to make a call, will crash after a short while.
Somtimes right during trying to answer a call.
Failing processes:
com.android.phone
android.proces.acore

Situation:
Sony Xperia Z1
Android 4.4.4
I think that this may be applicable to any phone or device running Android

Solution:
- Sync Contacts to Google
- Settings/Apps/All Apps
- select "Contacts"
- Force Stop
(Attention will loose contact settings and data after the next step, backup! You break it you own the pieces.)
- Delete Contacts Data
- Settings/Apps/All Apps
- select Contacts-Store
- Force Stop
- Delete Contacts-Store Data
- Settings/Sync/Google/Menu top right /Sync now

After re-syncing the contacts has finished, the issue was cleared.
Best regards, Euphoric
