Not that i know of, sorry. but i hated it before i froze it, i think it's a good enough reason to root - the whole process of rooting and freezing, if you do it very slowly and carefully, shouldn't take more than 10 mins i think. and its pretty easy.
Sometimes it register as a double tap and I'm in a class/meeting everyone hears "what would you like to do"
how do i disable this feature or make this silent mode?
You may need to root for removing Vlingo, but there is a way to turn off the stupid message.
1 goto Vlingo home screen (Voice talk screen)
2 Press menu button
3. Turn OFF Settings->Voice Talk Settings->Speak Prompts
This won't stop Stupid Vlingo from coming up accidentally, but atleast it won't hav e aloud voice message saying something annoying. Samsung has promised a fix to turn off Vlingo all together, lets hope they do it soon.
I also have the same problem sometimes when i get out of a program with one hit on the home button ****in vlingo shows. Its totally random so i know its not a hardware issue. Does anybody know a solution?
I found an easy solution that doesn't require a root. Install some launcher, as Go Launcher ex. Then in the list of your menu you see the voice command. Hold your finger on it and then choose the x and then uninstall.

After unsuccessful attempts to root my phone, I updated my galaxy 2 to Android 4.1.2 in order to disable Vlingo... only for it to be replaced with the equivalent by Google, a little bit less ugly but still very loud.
A solution is to use another app that can override the home button double tap launch. An option is 'utter!' from Google Play.
It doesn't block the screen and you can "mute in silent profile" in volume settings, and set silent profile round the clock in Advanced settings/accessibility/quiet times, for ex. set it between 10pm and 9:59pm.
Also don't forget to disable "Shake to wake", "Wave-to-wake", "Wake up phrase" to avoid consuming battery.
The Galaxy S2 (sometimes known as the Galaxy S II) is the follow up to Samsung's widely successful Galaxy S lineup. This time, the Galaxy S2 raises all the stakes and Samsung has found a way to double almost every spec in a true, one of a kind ... Read More
