Default Forced Close when trying to edit a Contact

When I chose a contact in the dialer and tap on the edit button, the app crashes. Does anyone else have suffer from this problem?

There is not a problem with every contact, some do work, but some cause a forced close!

Is there any differences between the contacts e.g. were they all Google contacts, or were they added manually on the phone or sim card etc?

Default only those contacts with events

My G3 contacts app force closes too. I figured out that it is due to the events (Birthdays, Anniversary) in the contact. You can view the contact just fine, but once you edit it, the app force closes. You can also create a new contact and try to add a new event, the app will force close.

However, I find this problem a little odd. The app only started to force close after I had done a factory reset to fix my wifi problems. Prior to the factory reset, I was able to edit some contacts with events.

I hope that I'm wrong, and there is a way to fix this problem quickly. I'm not sure LG is good at fixing stuff.

I found what had caused my problem. G3's contact app has a custom entry to enter events into a "phone" calendar by default. I had prevented the "phone" calendar from showing in my calendar app. This is what caused the contact app to force close. I just have to set the "phone" calendar to visible and there is no more force closes.

You are a star! This fixed it for me. And was it an annoying bug - I had to edit everything on my PC. Thanks so much!
