    All incoming phone calls are being automatically answered. I went to Settings>Language and Input; however, I don't see the Voice CMD for Apps option. I also want to note that this is not voice activated answering - it is just auto answering. I am not using a headset and the option for auto answering with a headset is off. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    The same thing happened to me this morning! I've since been trying to find a solution and have come across with the "Settings>Language and Input>Voice CMD for Apps to OFF", but like you, I do not see the "Voice CMD for Apps" option for a T-Mobile S3.
    Anyone else have a solution?
    Thanks in advance!!!

    Not sure if you got the answer to this but, select the 'phone tab' then menu then 'call settings'. Select the 'accessory settings for call', then select 'auto answering when head set connected only' this should help. Good luck

    As an added safety measure, you can also set the automatic answering timer to 10 seconds. That should give you enough time to decline or answer on your own terms in case your lovely GS3 decides to go bipolar on you and chooses to answer even when you aren't on a headset.

    Mine (with Verizon) was answering calls without me even realizing it. Pretty awkward when I'm in the middle of a conversation with my husband or son and a work call comes in.... You get the point. It was happening when I still had my phone on silent from the night before so I didn't even know it had been ringing. None of the suggestions were working for me but I just figured it out. Maybe this will help you:

    Phone Tab
    Call Settings
    Call answering/ending
    UNCHECK Answer calls using voice.
