    Question Galaxy S5: No access to keypad during phone calls!

    My S5 is from EE, and has a big cartoony picture of whoever you're calling taking up most of the screen, plus a couple of buttons.

    I'm not sure how to change this- none of the options are obvious. How can I access the keypad during a voice call?

    Does your dialer look like this?

    It should have the "keypad" option at the bottom. If not, you should be able to hold down on the left capacitive button and that will bring up the options menu.

    I am having the exact same issue. When I go into the phone settings, I do not see an option for displaying a keyboard.

    Good news: it can be fixed!
    Bad news: it is a little bit of a pain.

    I got this the day after activating my phone and the only way I was able to clear it was to back up my data and do a factory reset. You will lose all your passwords and accounts, but the issue will go away.
    I haven't had this problem again in the 2 weeks since.

    I had this problem up until 5min ago.

    1) Go to your drop down tool box menu
    2) Select car mode to turn it on
    3) Exit out of car mode
    4) Return to the drop down tool box menu to turn off the car mode.
    5) Try calling your voicemail now.

    It fixed both my keypad-less calls, and automatic speaker phone.

    That works temporarily for me, but how do I disable this app permanently?
