I have the same problem. I have the Samsung Galaxy SII and ever since my phone updated on 6/16 th...Ok just to clarify, do you have the S2 or the S2x? The reason I ask, is that the S2 and S2x are two different devices. In the same area as above (About device), look for the Model number. If it's an S2x, the model number should read SGH-T989D. The current Android operating system for both devices is Jellybean 4.1.2. You have ICS (or Ice Cream Sandwich) version 4.0.4. If you have the S2, it can perform an OTA or over-the-air update, meaning you don't need to tether it to a computer to upgrade the device. Go to About Device > Software updates. If the Software updates option doesn't appear at the very beginning of the menu, you have the S2x. The S2x needs to be tethered to your desktop or laptop computer via usb in order to download the 4.1.2. upgrade to your S2x. You'll need to download a free application called Samsung Kies. Once you download and install Kies and it finds your device, it will notify you of the update. The update/upgrade takes approximately half an hour. You will be prompted prior to upgrading as to what you want to save, i.e. contacts, files, music and photos. Samsung Kies http://www.samsung.com/ca/support/usefulsoftware/KIES/JSP The OS upgrade should address the Voice Search issue. I'm running several Android devices with the JellyBean 4.1.2. upgrade, I can honestly say that I have never run into the Voice Search error or where it randomly activates for no reason. Samsung Kies takes a little getting used to, if you encounter any problems during the upgrade process, let us know and we'll do our best to walk you through it.

What version Android are you presently running Sa Sara? To find out, go to Settings > About devic...Rikkster: Thank you very much for the detailed information about your backup method, I will most likely use it sooner or later (I'm a backup freak).

What version Android are you presently running Sa Sara? To find out, go to Settings > About devic...I guess I lucked out, after training Win 7 to interact with Kies the whole process took 26 minutes from start to finish. Using the Odin flash method, 16 minutes. Even if you don't upgrade the OS, a rooted device + custom recovery + nandroid backup saves the entire system; all apps, system and user settings including any device customizations (i.e. backgrounds, wallpapers, etc.) accounts, photos, music and contact info and stores everything to the microSD card. A rooted device becomes very useful when you want to disable or delete problematic apps. I'll throw in the disclaimer that rooting will void the manufacturer's warranty. However, the rooting process is fully reversible, the device can be un-rooted if it needs to be returned for repair or warranty work. The battery calibration issue has been resolved by performing a factory reset right after the new OS is installed, I also used Darkside Superwipe prior to installing the new OS. I'm running 4.1 on a rooted S2x and I can easily get a full day of moderate usage out of the device. Your point is well taken, a problem like this shouldn't require a complete OS overhaul and the user should have the ability to turn off problematic apps or features.
What version Android are you presently running Sa Sara? To find out, go to Settings > About devic...Yeah I have a laptop with W7 on it. I just didn't want to upgrade the cellphone for such a small issue. My girlfriend has 25 to 50 apps she uses everyday... And that would be my job to install them again 😉

What version Android are you presently running Sa Sara? To find out, go to Settings > About devic... All is not lost, I provided an alternative method a while back for those experiencing issues with Kies. I've personally tested this method and it works flawlessly. http://community.koodomobile.com/koodo/topics/installing_jellybean_4_1_2_when_samsung_kies_wont Same stuff here more or less, scroll halfway down the page to view my contribution. I may have forgotten to mention that you'll have to register with SamMobile to obtain the JB 4.1.2. upgrade - registration is free. http://community.koodomobile.com/koodo/topics/samsung_galaxy_s2x_shg_t989d_jelly_bean_update Revised link for Odin http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2189539
What version Android are you presently running Sa Sara? To find out, go to Settings > About devic...Actualy, my main cellphone is a JB Galaxy S2x. The secondary being to my girlfriend and JB eating a lot of battery, I did not proceed with the firmware update on her phone. Although the one running Jelly Bean is not having this issue! PS:Kies has serious compatibility issues on Windows 8. So if someone wants to go for JB, he'll need a pc with Windows 7 on it (otherwise I promise hours of pain!)

What version Android are you presently running Sa Sara? To find out, go to Settings > About device, then scroll down and locate the Android version. The latest version Android is JellyBean 4.1.2 and should be available for your device through Samsung Kies. I noticed that Jeff is running ICS. The OS upgrade adds many new features and should correct the vocal command problem you're experiencing. If you don't already have Kies, you can download it from the link below. http://www.samsung.com/ca/support/usefulsoftware/KIES/JSP
