Default speakerphone active by default

My 2 week old samsung galaxy s2 is defaulting to speaker whenever i make a call, although its not a major problem is does get very annoying ive done some research on other forums and such, but there hasn't been any answers that have solved the problem, that i have found anyway. Has anybody else experienced this problem, or even better does anybody have a solution, ive checked through every menu on settings, and stopped voice command running but the problem still persists. Thanks for any and all help

I've just found the same thing in the last couple of days. I'm sure my phone didn't do that before.

Mine too, in the last week or so. Also at the same time the screen rotation has started to be constantly on too even when toggled off. The lock screen has started rotating too.

Default back to normal after rebooting

My S2 also defaulted to speakerphone when accepting calls. At this point I don't know what caused the change of behavior. After a reboot it went back to normal behavior.

Does anyone have a resolution for this problem??

Default All kinds of random behaviour from my Galaxy S2

I've had the same problem and a host of other random weirdness ever since yesterday morning when I tried to connect it to the wi-fi network at work and then installed two alledged samsung updates: One was 'samsung apps' and another 'UNA Service' both with Samsung logo on them. No idea if my problems are related to these updates but its a bit of a coincidence. I'm now not sure however whether to delete the updates or whether that may mess up the phone even more : ( My problems include:

-ridiculously long and random vibrating
-it thinking there's a 'high power usb device attached when there's not and my battery losing all power in a few hours
-Car mode activating (I don't even know how to do that myself!)
-Voice commands activating when Im in a silent room just about to go to sleep

If anyone from samsung is reading this Im seriously thinking of ditching it for the new Iphone when it comes out if this randomness persists!

Hi people.

I have the same symptoms as described here. Car mode will activate, speaker phone will default on every call and voice activation pops up. I'm certain this is related to the the micro usb. Not sure if its dirty or has a loose connection, but blowing on the port seems to solve the problem temporarily but the fault still occurs after time.

I think a possible solution is a cover for the usb port, but cannot find one online anywhere.

hi

i had the same problem yesterday - speakerphone always on, lock screen rotating, auto-rotate switch doesn't stop screen auto rotating, Car Mode randomly starting.

found the solution! for me anyway...

i had installed a GPS navigation app called Sygic Aura - this is what was causing the problem. I uninstalled it and everything went back to normal. according to another thread i found, another app does the same thing called Police Scanner or something similar.

so basically -- have you recently installed an app that you might use in the car?? e.g. GPS navigation? some apps obviously don't implement a car mode properly and cause the problems above. try uninstalling them (one at a time if more than one) and see if the problems go away.

Same problem here. Had to uninstall all of the GO products (keyboard, contacts and launcher), since then, it appears to be working 'normally'.

Although the GO Launcher is sxy, in my experience it really mucked up a lot of settings, including mounting USB when connecting to PC, KEIS, etc.

It works fine for me thus far after I ....

> Double press the HOME button
> It will bring you to a "Voice Talk" app (powered by Vingo).
> Tab on "Driving mode" to turn on
> Tab on "Call", speak into the mic of a person from you contact
> If you speaker function is off, please turn it "ON" now
> Then exit "Voice Talk", now make a normal phone call, the speaker mode should be off by now.


Hope this would able to solve our problem.

Default same issue fixed

I was having the same exact issues as mentioned above. I have now fixed the issue. I'm hoping it is permanently fixed. I went in to the "Voice Talk" app under apps, opened it, then click on the far left button of the phone, the settings button, once inside of the settings display, scroll to the bottom and click on Voice Talk Settings and select it, there is an option called "Auto-start speakerphone", I unchecked it, and restarted my phone. Since then, it has resolved the issue. If it comes back, I'll be on here looking for answers.

Tank u 4 da comment Steve Jobs, yo.

Seriously though, I was having the same speaker phone and rotate problem for no apparent reason. I turned off the phone, restarted it, problems gone. Worked for me anyway.

This worked for me. You have to make sure you restart the phone, though!

Thanks Buddy!

Default Speaker turns on when calling a contact

I had the same problem . After removing the setting in voice talk, the speaker is not set when I receive incoming calls. But for all outgoing calls the speaker turns on automatically. What could be the problem ?

apparently this problem isn't just with samsung, as i got it with my htc sensation

apparently there's an actual setting for defaulting to the speaker, so i figured i'd search google play for "speaker default" and voilá, i found an app called auto speaker, which lets you enable/disable the setting (granted i needed a reboot after that)

I had the same problem, it was caused by a call recording app called call recorder pro,
there was a setting in the app called AUTO SPEAKER which i had enabled, once i disabled it the phone didn't default to speakerphone.
