Why am I getting the “LG IMS Service has stopped” error?

LG IMS Keeps stopping

You’re getting the “LG IMS Service has stopped” error most likely because the IMS service is down.

As of May 23, 2022, the IMS service is down for almost every user.

LG is aware of the issue and its engineering team is currently working to fix it.

To check if the IMS service is down, you can search for the error message that you’re experiencing on Twitter.

After you’ve searched for the issue on Twitter, check if anyone else is experiencing it.

Unfortunately, if the IMS service is down, there is nothing that you can do to fix it except wait it out.

Here are what some of the people that are experiencing the issue said:

“We are collectively having the same issue…it’s a network issue”.

“Glad to know It’s happening to us all that makes me feel at least a little better”.

“Talked to T-Mobile rep. She said they received 100s of calls about this. I called LG and a recording stated that it should be fixed within 24 hrs.”

“We’re all going through this the same day and time”.

As you can see, a ton of users are experiencing the same issue with the LG IMS service.

If the service isn’t down, you can try fixing it by removing recently installed apps or factory resetting your phone.

However, since the IMS service is down globally, you cannot do this.

Unfortunately, you cannot remove the service as it is automatically included in Samsung devices.

It’s essential for your phone’s services to function properly.

If you remove the service, you won’t be able to use VoLTE or Wi-Fi calling.
