How do I turn off Driver Mode on Samsung Galaxy S6?

Phone doesn't work since turned on

Go to your text messaging app. Click on the three horizontal lines in the upper left hand corner. Scroll down to Advanced, then Settings. Click on Driving Mode.

Then, unchecked any checked devices.

This will not stop these devices from working with your phone. This will only stop Driving Mode from automatically turning on, when the checked devices are detected.

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] .

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

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.
