The effective spin-spin interaction mediated by phonons is considered in order to give a possible mechanism which could give rise to the spin-glass phase in insulators. The Abrikosov and Moukhin method has been applied in order to obtain the magnetic susceptibility and specific heat in five different temperature domains. The concurrence of the dipolar and spin-spin interaction given by phonons is discussed.
