Replace/remove s-voice on the Samsung Galaxy S3 (and hopefully noteII)



...a post in a forum (link) that gave me the missing link to getting “Bluetooth Launch” to work!  There were a few more steps to do:
  1. Open S-Voice and from the settings menu, un-check the option to launch with the home button. (Home2Shortcut takes over anyway).
  1. Open the phone “System settings” and goto “Applications manager”.  Swipe right twice to get to “All” and find S-Voice and disable it.
  1. Connect to your bluetooth headset/device with the screen unlocked and press the bluetooth button. This should cause a “Complete action using” dialog.  Here you can launch any application you want, including Google Search.
To automatically launch the google search with voice search activated, I found another handy app called “ICS Voice Search Shortcut” (link).
And there you go.  S-Voice replaced!
This was all done on a Samsung Galaxy S III LTE (I9305) with Jellybean 4.1.2.
