Questions and Answers

Hello, I have tried the suggestions but they have not worked?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. I can't find Driving Mode in the top menu. I want to disable it or configure it to where it is helpful. Right now it is sending automatic messages to people saying I am driving when I am not.

Do you know the full name of the car mode app specific to Galaxy phones?

Actually, I have discovered the S6 does NOT have a car mode. I want one. some forums have said to download the car mode app from the Galaxy store, but I don't know which app to choose. Do you know the full name of the car mode app specific to this phone?

First of all, try to install [1] or [2] . You will be able to scan your S6 for the Car Mode application and put the shortcut into your application drawer.

If your phone cannot locate the application, try installing [3] . That is the Car Mode application from Samsung.

If you still have problems, install [4] .

Where is my text messaging app?

I need to turn off the driving mode, thanks

    The message application that utilizes the driving mode is Message+. To access it, press the home button. Tap on "Apps". Swipe left or right to locate the page with Message+. When you find the icon for Message+, tap on it. Tap on the hot-dog menu (the three horizontal lines) and select "Settings". Then, you will be able to uncheck the options for the driving mode.

Actually I figured it out - maybe. I didn't want to turn it off, I wanted to set up auto replies?

But I think I had to change the default message system (Verizon vs Samsung). Why are there two? It is so confusing

My phone has turned itself onto a mode where it voices everything I tap and will not let me pull down the screen to access settings I have a hand at the top status bar and can't stop this setting. I would like to permanently disable this

I believe the phone is in drive mode, I'm not sure. It was in my purse and somehow something was pushed to change the mode. There is a hand showing in the status bar and the phone voices everything

How can I turn Drive mode off? I'm not even in a car?

Drive mode came on, and will not go away. How do I turn it off?

If you open up "S Voice" and go to the settings, you'll find an option that will allow you to have driving mode activate whenever you connect to Bluetooth. Disable that option and you'll be all set.

If you're using the Samsung Galaxy S5, Drive Mode has been changed to Car mode, and you'll want to visit our guide on how to use Car mode on the Samsung Galaxy S5.

My settings in my message do not have an advanced option. What do I do?

I did reset to default, but I don't know if that will work. I have tried: Taking your advice in the article, but no advanced option. Resetting to default. Don't know if it worked. I think it was caused by: It started when I linked my Gear Fit to my phone

I've tried to find the solution to the "I'm driving" problem but can't. It's making me crazy?

Samsung 6S Edge; started doing this about a week ago. I've followed the directions provided. I can't find a "driving mode" option in settings to turn it off. I have tried: Following directions for removal, enlisted co-works with androids. I think it was caused by: I downloaded a fit bit app about the same time this started.
