Default Can you Disable or Remap Voice Control Button?

I love the Moment.

But I find myself endlessly annoyed by the placement of the Voice Control button on the side of the phone.

This button's placement is absolutely perfect for accidentally pushing it with your thumb or fingers when you're on a call, or when holding the phone in either portrait or landscape mode.

I dont use voice control. Even if I did, I'd want it to turn on when I decided to use it.

I've searched the Phone Settings; I've searched these forums; I've searched the Android Marketplace.

Short of cracking the case and physically removing the button, I'm out of ideas.

You can disable it only if you root your Moment (look further down the page for the instructions).

Thanks for the quick answer. I don't think I'm ready to root my phones just yet. I'm still an android neophyte.

If you have the update than there is no need UNLESS you want to delete some apps or go with a custom ROM...

It is EASY to root if you follow these directions...

The deleting of apps is also easy just a little more involved typing that's all

I'm not clear -- do I need to root or not? In either event, how do I disable the voice control button?

This is a pretty good tutorial on how to root. Removing Nuance will cause the voice control button to revert to a contacts button. If you don't want to use the script from the root page, this is a good guide on how to remove individual programs. Personally, I prefer to use root explorer but it is not a free program. Rooting is easy and you have plenty of backup here and on SDX should you run into trouble. Have fun.

Hmm, my preference would be to disable it completely, as I have a car windshield mount which presses that button, which I never use. Now, if the phone is asleep when I put it into the windshield mount, this isn't a problem, so maybe that's my best solution.

Thanks anyway.

----> Same thought process. I am driven NUTS with this stupid stupid feature of Sywpe.

Have you found your answer yet, The reply to your question as regarding ROOT and all that was very wishy-washy.
Also the gentleman/lady should know that ROOT violates the warranty on the phone. I am not sure that is desirable.
Frankly, I dont even want the SYWPE SETTINGS button (lower left corner) on the keyboard.
How many times does one change SETTINGS.

That could be replaced by the @ sign or even your humble !, but not settings.
There is just no one listening at Swype look like...

This is where the iPhone 4 excels. You will find any number of stable, rock solid apps allowing you to customize the keyboard.

If you have found the answer to this one, please, please email me; else I am taking a power drill and drilling right thru my otherwise very beautiful Samsung Galaxy SII.
I am going so very crazy over these buttons
