Every phone be it android, iPhone etc have this one imperative function that is inevitable and is the number one use any phone user will put his phone to, and that is phone calls.
Therefore, the android telecom or com.android.server.telecom as named in the application is a call configuration package with a set of codes working when you are making calls with your phone. in addition, the work it does is communicating with your operating system when you send or receive signals.

Android Telecom and Telephony
Thus, it is important to note that, there are two types of this application, the android telephony, and the android telecom
The telephony is the dialer app that shows you your contacts and holds your contact for you and that in which you type phone numbers. It manages sim-based calls, VOIP calls using SIP meaning sip connection service or via third party VOIP
While the telecom, on the other hand, is the one that does all those phone calls you make and the received calls
You need not worry about anything to consider uninstalling the application, because it does not function to store your information or spy on your call logs. However, It set out to play three major roles in the functions of your android phone.
- It manages your calls that are voice over internet protocol (VOIP) using SIP connection that is sip connection service.
- It manages calls based on your sim card using telephony
- In addition, manages the voice over internet protocol (VOIP) when it is via the third party too.
With these, the android telecom or rather com.android.server.telecom app helps in managing your phone calls. Therefore, imagine having a phone that you cannot make a call or video call with, then the primary function of the phone is out and the primary reason for having the phone is tarnished. Thus, you cannot uninstall the application if you do not want to render your android phone useless in that aspect. Moreover, the manufacturer has even made it a part of the phone such that you cannot uninstall.
