    Hi all...

    Can someone please help me?

    How on earth do I turn OFF the "What do you want to do?" in the voice activation app?

    It's set to go off with that annoying question when I double click the home button. Sometimes it just goes off when I press the home button, maybe there is a dodgy connection in the home button that looks to the app like a double hit; I dont know and dont really care. I just want to switch it off. I dont use it, ever, and now I never will as the sentence and voice has left a deep loathing in me now for the app.

    I have looked every where to see how to disable it, uninstall it, kill it whatever. I have been to several meetings and it goes off when looking at docs/email in the meetings. Even when the phone is on mute it goes off....

    I'm pleading, begging, I'll do anything if someone, somewhere, some saint can point me in the right direction to get this dam annoyance of software disabled or silenced. Please. Anyone.....

    Many thanks


    The phone is a non rooted phone, just a plain vanilla Galaxy S2

    In which case,
    Settings, motion, uncheck double tap

    if you are rooted, you can freeze "Voice Command" in Titanium Backup

    Download and Install the Go Launcher App
    Access The App Drawer and Press the icon of the Voice Talk App for few seconds
    A small red ‘X’ icon appears next to the app icon, Click on it
    You will be directed to the Uninstall Page , Press OK.

    ...Or just install 'uninstaller' by rhythm software.. that's how I uninstalled it on my unrooted s2 without having to install third party launcher.

    Used it for years..

    Fantastic uninstaller!
