What Is LG IMS: There are many people who are confused about LG IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) related issues and don’t know the actual procedure to solve the problem effectively. Among three major issues, the “Unfortunately, LG IMS Has Stopped” is one of them which many users want to solve. Below here we will be discussing all the three LG IMS-related issues along with their solution.
What Is LG IMS?
LG IMS is basically a framework that is in charge to provide a number of services. Among these, few major services delivered by LG IMS consist of Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE), Wi-Fi calling, and more.
One must take note that this framework is not only meant for LG devices only, therefore, some other devices from different manufacturers also use this framework as well. However, when it comes to LG devices exclusively, the framework’s package name is com.lge.ims, and it will not be a surprise if you see it running in the Android system apps.
What Are The Common LG IMS Issues Reported By Users?
Even though there are a number of LG IMS issues that are reported by the users, but below here we will be discussing the three most common ones which are usually faced by the users. The two of these are not even big issues and can be sorted out easily as it is related to the usual working of the framework. However, there’s one known issue that is caused by LG IMS and that is “Unfortunately, LG IMS Has Stopped.” Below here we will be describing all three issues for you.
High Battery Use
It is the most common misconception among the users, who think LG IMS is being responsible for high battery usage, but in reality, it is not. We have also described this above, the LG IMS is only responsible for delivering a number of services such as Wi-Fi calling. Most people get this wrong idea because whenever they check their battery usage, they see IMS (com.lge.ims) at the top of the list of apps. Due to this, they think the app is consuming a high battery and that’s why it is draining very fast. However, it might be due to using the phone generally for VoLTE or Wi-Fi calling.
Automatic Location Turning-On
This is another concern that users have regarding LG IMS thinking that it is an issue, but this is how it functions. It doesn’t matter which device you are using, but IMS can turn on the location services in order to locate your location so that it can use that information for uninterrupted Wi-Fi calling. You can understand this with this example: If your device has disabled Android Emergency Location Service (ELS) then at the time of contacting emergency services, it won’t be able to share your location when. However, your carrier may share the location at the same time.
