Galaxy S2 Voice Talk Errors/Problems

Double Tab Problem

Double Tapping the Home Button pops up the Voice Talk App which many users find very annoying because of often accidental double taps.

Fix: On your Device, Go to Settings -> Applications, Scroll down to Find “Double Tap Home launch” option, you can either disable the feature of choose another application instead of Voice Talk.

Drive Mode Auto Switch Problem

This is absolutely manufacture fault. When you plugin USB cable, it automatically switches to Auto Drive Mode which will kind of trouble you at some instances.

Fix: There isn’t any obvious fix for this, Try detaching the battery and brushing the USB pins gently. Few users find this step working, but it didn’t work for me.

 How to Disable Voice Talk

If neither of the above solutions work or you wish to disable Voice Talk for some other reason, Good News, there is an easy way to Uninstall Voice Talk app which doesn’t require rooting

  • 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.

You can also Disable the Voice Talk app by manually deleting the app files, which is a little more complicated process.

    Nothing you suggested works. I downloaded go launcher but there is no way to set the double tap and a X doesn’t appear next to voice talk when I hold it but does appear next to other apps
