    Go to" s voice " then open "settings" then open "application control". There you will find the disable option.

    Omg! This happens to me all the time on my galaxy 3s and its drivng me nuts. Its quite a dangerous situation and highly irritating. I can't find how to turn this off also. My phone always answers itself. Its weird to have peoole listen in on your conversations. I looked everywhere on this phone, and finally resorted to this forum. If you have found a solution, please respond with an answer. Otherwise I will have to go to the cell phone store to have them fix it.

    Changing certain settings will, unfortunately, not fix the problem.

    This is a full-fledged bug.

    However, good news is, I know what causes the bug, and thus how you can prevent it from happening in the future. I suspect that most of you are experiencing the same bug.

    The bug happens when I use speakerphone on a phone call and hang up with speakerphone enabled. The next time someone calls me, it auto-answers.

    My solution has been to not use speakerphone.

    Let us know if that works. If not I will try a dig up something as well.

    I was able to find a setting that allowed the phone it auto answer if there is a headset plugged in. I don't know if that includes a bluetooth headset...

    Open your phone dialer tap the menu button then call settings / accessory settings / automatic answering
    Yes, it does apply to BT devices.

    I believe this was it! it's in the S-Voice Settings Menu, not the main settings, not the call settings. So freakin annoying it happened again today and I was determined to figure it out! So embarrassing!

    Thank you! If this isn't it, I will definitely post again, but I did everything the former posts said and nothing helped. Thank you again. Maria

    If you have 'Call Settings > Accessory settings for calls > Automatic answering' turned on, and you have a cordless phone (like the Panasonic KXTG7643M) that links with your cell phone to allow you to make and receive calls through your cell phone, your cell phone will automatically answer calls whenever it's connected to your cordless phone system, because it does so via bluetooth. Even though the setting at 'Call Settings > Accessory settings for calls > Automatic answering' says 'Automatic answering only operates with a connected headset', it unfortunately does not know the difference between a headset and any other bluetooth device.

    you have to change your settings in s- voice! this was driving me crazy! they're I'd an option under voice commands in your e-book settings to auto answer your calls. uncheck that and you are good to go!

    I see a lot of people saying this is a bug. It is not. It is a feature of the Galaxy.

    OMG Dude! I have been trying to figure this out for days!!! My Galaxy S4 must come with that as a setting already. I was having fits trying to figure out why my phone would answer automatically if I was using a Bluetooth.

    Thank you for that information. I am glad I kept searching the web.

    Ok give this a try .go to your phone pad at the bottom of you phone were the return button is there is a menu tap it go to call setting open it then to accessory sittings tap the automatic answering to remove the check by it. That should take care of your problems.

    I went through this post trying to find the answer, but to every solution I came across a problem:

    Voice CMD is no where to be found in the S-Voice App.
    In phone call setting there is no options and the voice command. The closest thing I can find is Voice control under "answer/ending calls"
    but that is unchecked.
    There is no Control Apps or Application control setting in my S-Voice
    There is no voice control settings in S-Voice; it is in call settings and is UNchecked.
    Automatic Answering is turned off

    Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated as my phone still automatically picks up every call.

    Have you tried booting into Safe mode? http://support.verizonwireless.com/s...ase.html/59242

    If that doesn't make any difference then I'd suggest a Factory Reset.

    The very first thing I did with the phone was a factory reset (I got it used). I'll try booting it up in safe mode, thanks.

    Starting it in safe mode did nothing, I have just put the reject all calls option on in the mean time.

    Bummer; I didn't realize that you had already done a Factory Reset or I wouldn't have suggested Safe mode.
    What version of firmware are you running?
    Has it done this from the beginning?

    Android Version 4.4.2

    The second I got this phone it started doing it.

    Thanks for your input so far, it's much appreciated.

    I can't imagine S Voice causing this problem, but you can disable that and see if the problem persists.

    Does your carrier use Wi-Fi calling?
