Thumbs down Problem! The process com.android.phone has stopped unexpectedly

I already read some other threads with the same name but nothing really like my problem.
I inserted another person's sim card and after i turned on the phone it started giving me "Sorry! The process com.android.phone has stopped unexpectedly... Force Close. "
But its showing up all the time, one after another. I press Force Close and then another pops up. I can';t even navigate in my phone, i can't do anything but turn it off.
Basiclly i am stuck with 400 euro, phone that just gives errors and is totally unusable.
My phone has stock software, not rooted.

When I got the phone I was so happy...and soon the bsod problems started and I was forced to buy a new one (I see what you did there LG) - but i chose Sony Ericsson this time.

Try to root your phone and install a Clockwork Recovery. Then from the Advanced menu in the recovery choose Fix permissions. Restart the phone and see if it is fixed. If it isn't just flash a custom ROM. This will probably do the job.

This might be a hardware problem or a software problem. Since you didn't root the device you can just go back to the store and ask them to repair it or send it to LG or whatever they can do (because you still have your warranty... right?). Why didn't you go back to the store in the first place?

The problem is after i click on Force Close, it gives me another error too fast and i can't click on anything(I can't really install or use any app). Its like windows errors when you get one error like thousand times and you keep on clicking and clicking and there's no end.
Restarting the phone does nothing.

And yes I already talked with support and Im going to give it back for repair. I don't think its a hardware problem, its the crappy software LG made. I didn't send it back because I could live with 3-4 bsod per week, but now that... Plus im from Bulgaria and the user above knows how long it takes to get your phone back

Okay. Then, try these steps. You don't need to install anything on your phone. You will install a new stock firmware using smartflash. I think this is the only way to fix your phone in a situation like this. Follow the steps:

1. Download Smartflash and its drivers from here and after that install the drivers.
2. Now choose a firmware from here and download it.
3. Run the SmartFlashTool_P990.exe executable.
4. Turn off the phone, remove battery, plug USB in and hold the Power + Volume down keys until you see the software update message - the COM ports field in the SmartFlash program will be filled in automatically
5. Now follow this image:


There is a video lesson too.

Всичко това се надявам да оправи проблема ти. След като инсталираш стоковия ROM и всичко е успешно, ако ти се занимава си сложи някой от последните GR Leak Custom-и. Успех

Yes do what gkostadinov said and that will fix your phone back to stock, then root and flash clockworkmod recovery you can use the clockworkmod app from android market to do this once you have rooted.

The pick a nice fast custom rom and profit.

Id suggest using the samsung pc studio(I dont know if it does but there should be some support on updating the phone software) to flash stock rom. Or flash a custom rom if you prefer. If you are able to use the phone and click on the screen then its not a problem to do so.
This is your forum - http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1167
I think you will find all the information on rooting, flashing and so on.
My problem was different as my phone was basically unable to do anything.
I had it returned to service as I didnt saw gkostadinov reply on time.

Same happened for me some time back. It was caused by google+. try uninstalling and re-installing the google+ app from the market.

I once used hp kernel rc11 and got the same issues. I just reflashed it with the stable version (sr2). Problem solved.
