    Default Making Bluetooth Calls/Commands While S4 Locked?

    So I got (another) new BlueTooth headset- a Plantronics Voyager Legend, which I love by the way. I want to use it to originate calls from my SGS4 as well as answer them. But every time I got to make a call my phone is locked and so doesn't respond to holding down the call button till you get the tone. That means I have to pull the phone out, use the swipe pattern to unlock it so I can make a call.....What I wonder is if there isn't something I am missing with S-Voice that would let me get around this yet still keep my phone auto-locked in case I lose it in the city so no one can get my info.

    I think I programmed the setting right and recorded my "Hey Galaxy" recording to wake the phone up....does that NOT work if you lock your phone?

    To place calls while locked.
    Open the Phone app, call settings, call accessories, outgoing call conditions.
    Make sure "Even when device locked" is selected.
