    Seriously, is this working for anyone? I'm new to Samsung phones, but when this comes on I can't get passed the point where "Dial <name>" gives me a like of names. This list always has people with a common name like "John" or something. It asks you to be more specific. Well how more specific than giving a first and last name can you be? Voice dialing on this phone sucks. It comes on in conjunction with my Jawbone bluetooth ear-mic.

    Try disabling S Voice and using the Google VR program.

    Try something like "Call John cell" (We Brits would say mobile), your problem only occurs for me if I have more than one phone number for a contact.

    This was my solution, primarily because S Voice will not dial through bluetooth if the phone is PIN locked. The dialog goes on a bit, but it always seems to work.

    How do you do that?

    Settings/More/Application Manager. Then slide over to "All" then find S Voice in the list and hit "Turn Off." It will then show up on the "Turned Off" list.

    There is another thread similar to this topic and the instructions to remap the double tap on the home key. Here is a link to the thread. Worked great to reassign Google to the Home double tap.
