There is a lot of misinformation around LG IMS; in this post, we have discussed what it actually means and how to resolve the “LG IMS has stopped issue.” We also addressed several commonly asked questions and other issues raised by users.
What is LG IMS?
LG IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) is a framework in charge of offering services such as Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE) (Wi-Fi calling). This framework is not limited to LG smartphones; it may also be found on smartphones from other manufacturers. The package name of this framework on LG smartphones is com.lge.ims, and there is nothing odd if you see it in the running Android system apps.
Users Have Reported LG IMS Issues
The three most prevalent difficulties caused by LG IMS are discussed below. Two of these are not issues; they are reported by users, but that is simply how the framework works. “Unfortunately, LG IMS Has Stopped,” is the only known issue caused by LG IMS.
High Battery Consumption
According to several customers, LG IMS is to blame for high battery use, which they believe is a problem. As previously said, it is a framework in charge of offering services such as Wi-Fi calling. When users see IMS (com.lge.ims) in the top applications for battery utilization, they assume the app is eating the battery. However, this might be due to using the phone mostly for VoLTE or Wi-Fi calling.
Automatically turning on a location
IMS service may automatically switch on location services to locate you and use that information for Wi-Fi calling without interruptions, regardless of your carrier or device. Assume your phone’s Android Emergency Location Service (ELS) is turned off or unavailable in your country.In such a situation, your device will be unable to share your location when contacting emergency services, but your carrier may.
LG IMS message is an issue that can appear on smartphones, such as the LG G series, Stylo, LG Wing, and others. It periodically appears, and in some cases, it just does not go away, stopping you from using your smartphone. We don’t know why the LG IMS started malfunctioning like this, but we do know how to fix it. Please see the next section for information on how to resolve the problem.

3. Install a Custom or Stock ROM
Installing a custom or stock ROM might be a little difficult for folks with less technical skills. It is entirely up to you which one you choose to flash, but we recommend going with the stock Rom. If you decide to use a CUSTOM ROM, GOOGLE search “How to flash custom ROM on (device name)” and follow the steps to complete the operation. If you wish to install a stock ROM, search for a tutorial on Google.
lgstockrom.com is a website where you can obtain LG stock ROMs.
4. Turn off the LG IMS.
As previously said, LG IMS is a vital framework; if it is removed, you will be unable to use VoLTE or Wi-Fi calling. So, if none of the above techniques are working for you, consider deactivating them using the instructions listed below. If it’s something you don’t want to do, try approach 5.
- Dial 277634#*# to access the hidden menu.
- Click the Field test > Modem settings > VoLTE on/off.
- Now, turn off IMS and restart your phone.
5. Factory Reset Your Smartphone
Most people dread factory resetting their device due to the inconvenience of having to set up the device again, but if you are unable to resolve the message issue using technique 1 to 4, you can factory reset and, hopefully, the message will not show again.
Please keep in mind that factory resetting your device would permanently erase all of your data; before you do so, we urge that you backup everything necessary.
There are two methods for factory resetting Android devices: via the side button or through device settings. We’ve described how to reset your device through device settings below; bear in mind that the process may change somewhat based on your Android OS version.
- Navigate to Settings > General > Backup & Reset.
- To begin the process, tap on Factory reset.
If your device alerts you about erasing data, allow it and wait until the operation is complete and your phone restarts.
