Disabling Google Voice Dialer

Thursday 14th of February 2013 /
I have a Motorola Electrify M, recently factory-OTA-updated to Android 4.1.2. With the update came Google Now and the Google Voice Dialer.Google's Voice Dialer sucks! It always get the name wrong, and then immediately places a call to the wrong person! It doesn't even ask for confirmation of the name, and to top it off the voice it uses is so irritating and LOUD it makes me want to jump out the window while driving down the freeway!The Voice Commands app that originally came with the phone worked reasonably well, and I'd like to get it back (or even a third party app, like Dragon Assist, would be better than the current POS that's taken over the voice capabilities of my phone).How can the Google Voice Dialer be disabled or uninstalled?

Missing Google Voice Search Icon

Sunday 15th of April 2012 /
I have a Samsung Nexus S 4G (Sprint) and I am running Android ICS v4.0.4After being upgraded to ICS/4.0.4 just a few days ago I removed my Voice Search (NOT Voice Dialer) icon from my screen. After doing so, I disabled Google Search via "Manage apps" so that the search bar will no longer appear on my screens. Today I decided to add the Voice Search icon back and it is no longer available for me to add!I confirmed Voice Search is still installed. I am not sure if disabling Google Search had anything to do with the Voice Search icon going away but that is the only major change I made after removing the icon. All other changes I made were basic changes, i.e. adding and removing other icons and such.Solutions I tried:- I rebooted the phone: No change!- I enabled Google Search and rebooted again: No change!- With Google Search still enabled, I disabled Voice Search and rebooted and then enabled Voice Search: No change!, so I then rebooted the phone again: No change!Also, in addition to making sure the Voice Search app is still installed, I did confirm it is still working. I am a

Choosing which dialer answers an incoming google voice call - Native vs Talkatone

Tuesday 26th of March 2013 /
I have spent two hours searching androidforums and xda developer forums for a solution with no luck so I have resorted to creating a new thread. Hopefully I'm just doing something wrong. I use google voice and after trying out Groove IP and Talkatone I'm leaning towards talkatone because of its compression capability over 3G/4G. The only issue I have is that I cant answer calls fast enough to use talkatone. The first two rings come in on talkatone and because I have google voice forwarded to my mobile number as well as google chat, the third ring comes in on the native dialer and takes the focus. Is there any way at this point to choose talkatone to answer? If I reject the call with the native dialer it sends the call to voicemail and I cant answer with talkatone. I understand that I can always answer calls with talkatone by disabling forwarding to my mobile number but my concern is that if there is an issue with the talkatone app that I could miss calls without knowing, so I'd like to keep forwarding to my mobile. Hopefully that was coherent. Has anyone found a good strategy for thi
