new ipod user - voice control

  sheila.weston 16:24 07 Jul 2011

When I turn on my new ipod touch I get a screen saying 'voice control' before the screen showing the 'slide to unlock' comes up. What is the voice control screen for and can I bypss it? I have a voice problem, in any case and it is rather rubbing it in!

Yep, Tap settings > and locate voice control, swipe to off!

How do I find it? I have looked under 'Sounds', 'General' and several others, but it doesn't seem to be there.

You've ticked resolved box, I guess you found it?

Very sorry, I ticked in error. No, I still can't find it. What is it under?

Should help, thread must have ticked itself....LOL!
