I have a Galaxy s 3, love the phone but ive noticed something odd, when Im in the text application I cant use the voice to text facility. I press the button and it just says connection error. I can use it on wifi but not 3g.

Any ideas as to what this could be???

Love the site btw
I can't confirm this myself, but I'd imagine that your carrier has some sort of proxy that is preventing voice actions to work on particular ports. I would try calling their customer support to see if they are blocking any ports that voice actions would be on.

Could you link that thread? I would imagine the feature would be in the Messaging App that you could uncheck.

Thoughts?
Try clearing the data on your text / email applications. The way you do this is go to Settings > Application Manager > All tab > (email / text app) > clear data. It resets the app and should work properly after that.
