    So...I'm on 10.2.xxxx(i forget and can't get into the setting) and voice control is stuck on. If I go into settings, I can click on a sub-menu, but it just reads it to me. Not sure if this is a glitch with 10.2 or something I just can't figure out. I tried double tapping the button in between the volume buttons and it brings up voice control...but I can't get in anywhere to turn it off. Any ideas?

    There have been at least three threads addressing only this issue, you must do a security wipe...

    EDIT: I'm completely wrong, I know what you're think, but yes it happens far more than you think you don't have to do a security wipe... Per Kris just three quick taps of the power button will enable and disable the functions.

    Not a problem, I feel bad for ya, because guess what?? I did the same thing! I was playing around with everything switched it on, and then I realized I was screwed, but this was before any of knew about the issue... Jeez, I couldn't believe it you can't even change the settings in air because it isn't there and I sat there for 10 minutes trying to talk back to the device, like: "Turn off reader", "BlackBerry stop read service", then I finally just said "F* you reader I'm nuking you!" the BlackBerry continued not to respond to me and my useless yellings so it got a good ole security wipe

    EDIT: SEE POST ABOVE FOR CORRECTION

    Hi -- My Q10 suddenly started activating the Voice Control every time I plug in a headset. Nobody can hear me through the microphone. I've tried all the steps people have listed: turning the Voice Control "off" so it wouldn't be activated when the mute button is pressed, and pressing the power button on and off quickly 3 times. None of this works.

    Anybody have another solution? I use my Blackberry for business and it's ridiculous I now can't use a headset.
