    Default Voice recognition not working

    Hello all,
    My razr will not recognize any voice input. I go to text message or googletalk and click the microphone icon. It says initializing, speak now, and then no spech heard; and then closes out. VZW tech support had me put the phone into safe mode, did the same thing. They told me it was an OS issue and I would have to restore to a previous version

    My phone is currently version 6.12.181.xt912.verizon.en.us, Android version 2.3.6.

    Anyone have a similar experience or know if restoring will fix this issue???

    I'm starting to hate VZW. This is my 5th phone since Oct 2011 and there has been something wrong with every one of them.

    I'm by no means an expert but I believe I've heard of similar problems on different phones. First, I would try doing a factory reset. I know that can be a big pain but that could possibly solve the issue. I'm not sure if you have rooted the phone or installed ROMs or what but something like this could possibly be fixed by this.

    If that doesn't work, I would try using RSD to go back to an earlier software version then letting the phone re-update its software. (It's possible something got messed up when updating.)

    Keep us updated and possibly someone more qualified can help you out.

    I was hoping to avoid doing a reset, but from what I have (or haven't found) it seems like the only option. If my afternoon is as quiet as I'm hoping it will be, I will be resetting today. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Is there a way to prevent or postpone all my apps from automatically downloading when I sign in for the first time?

    Ended up doing a factory reset.....and it didn't help any. So, I have yet another replacement phone on its way.

    From Oct 2011, I have gone through 3 Bionics, 1 Charge, 2 SIM cards and now on my second RAZR.

    Maybe, just maybe, the factory recertified isn't all that its cracked up to be.

    You should ask them to send you the Maxx for all the trouble they have given you.

    I'm having the same problem. Just got my phone today. the reason I went with the droid razr over the iphone s was the voice texting. seems like it doesn't work at all.

    email me I'm new to forums. just got the phone 3 hours ago and so frustrated.
