    Disable Voice-to-Text?

    Is there any way to disable the Voice-to-Text feature? It's not something I'm likely to use often, and I'm really weary of hitting that microphone key by accident all day long.

    Do you have root? Do you have root explorer, if you do, change ttsservice.apk to ttsservice.bak and voicecommands.apk to .bak if you dont use voice command. Those are located in the /system/app

    Life isn't all about a phone, its all about your daily activities and the people we communicate.

    Yeah I was going to look into finding an alternate keyboard with VTT not on there. I use it on maps and search but not for texting and things.

    I freaking hit that key all the time!!!

    Try smart keyboard, you can disable the text speech thing.

    Thanks for the suggestions - exactly what I was looking for. Smart Keyboard looks good, but I have to admit really liking Swype and also liking SwiftKey Beta. Possibly I'll root the thing and rename the appropriate files. I've not messed with the phone much yet, as I have been 'patiently' (yeah, right!) waiting for the official Froyo update. Thanks for all the input!
