    Works like a charm - No root necessary

    Go to S Voice app > Settings > Uncheck

    At first it didn't work, but I went to
    manage applications
    Touchwiz Home
    Clear defaults

    Now it's working like a champ.

    Have you tried clearing the touchwiz defaults?

    That did the trick for me.

    No prob. I felt like many people were missing out

    I just wish Samsung offered the option to choose, rather than forcing S voice

    you can also download nova launcher to replace home button with google as well. i have home button 1 press for google while on home screen, double pressing home button enables svoice. You can also enable swiping up with the app launcher to enable google now (nova prime only I think)

    Will this work through bluetooth? Has anyone found a good hands-free method without root? S Voice is really stinking it up/

    The only thing I missed about S-Voice is voice dialing. Google Voice Search could never dial the correct contact. Most of the time it will go out and search the web instead of suggesting one of contacts when I say "Call XXX mobile". I have settings set to search Contacts too, but it doesn't help at all. S-Voice seems to work 100% of the time on Voice Dial.

    I just wish Google Voice will integrate better with the phone OS.
  12. Thank you very much for this.

    Excellent! Thank you basegod. There is one more related trick that you or someone else may be able to help with. As bad as S Voice is, one thing that it can do is integrate with my Motorola H730 Bluetooth headset meaning, when I click the button on the H730 Bluetooth, it invokes S Voice.

    Is there a way to instead invoke Google Now when the Bluetooth button is pressed?

    You're welcome CameraShy

    Sorry. I'm not sure....I don't own any Bluetooth headsets. Hopefully someone from this thread will be able to chime in and help
