How do I disable voice dialing??????

I have a Bold 9000, and sometimes the bugger just drives me nuts.

 

This has only happened to me twice now, but it's a pretty costly issue..

 

My voice dialing seems to randomly turn on, I have no idea what is leading up to it, I hadn't had my headphone jack in it for a couple of hours.... But then, the next morning, my alarm doesn't go off because the stupid voice dialing was activated [as you can see, this is a costly issue because it has lead to me missing a shift].

 

Anyways, all the posts that I have read the solution has been to disable the side key.. Which I did a long time ago, and I double checked today, yes, it is turned to video camera, not voice dialing.

 

How do I disable my voice dialing??  Please help!

I had the same thing happen to me yesterday; however, only for the first time.  Luckily, I'm an early riser and happen to wake up shortly after my alarm was supposed to go off this morning.  I'm checking around too.

I changed the convenience keys and also hid the icon on my home screen. Take a look at this post if you want to completely remove the application from the BlackBerry. It involves removing some java files

Try taking the battery completely out.  I did that and rebooted it, and now all my sounds work.

[ Edited ]

My company does not allow voice activated dialing on my BB 9700.  There is no reference to it on my phone.  There is no smart key for it.   Yet I cannot play media because it says VAD is active.  I have rebooted my device - nothing.  I have removed the battery - no help.  I have run software to look for VAD.  Nothing.  I have security wiped it three times - it works for 24 hours, then back to active VAD.  I use a Bluetooth - could that be doing something to it?

 

My desktop phone sends voicemail to my BB - I need to be able to listen to these messages in the field. 

 

Someone please help me!

Re: How do I disable voice dialing??????

Any instructions for MacOS?   This VAD thing is going to determine if I bother to get BB10. If it is in that, heck no!  I just had it out with BB technical support who was like "You're using a bluetooth handsfree device.  That's your problem!"

 

Whatever, just tell me how to uninstall your Voice dialing **bleep** off my 9780. I'm not paying for a next phone to quarrel with me.
