Cellular Phones/Hands free calling on Galaxy s3


I have a Galaxy s3 running version 4.3 software with ATT service.  I would like to answer and end phone calls while I'm driving using voice commands.  I have set everything I can find on the phone to do this but it is still not working.  Can you give me any advice?  Thank you.

This device cannot be used handsfree by itself, i.e., it does not recognize commands. If you have the device paired with your car or a bluetooth headset that does recognize voice commands, that would be the only way to accomplish these tasks. From my knowledge, I'm no aware of any device that does this, but I could be wrong. You have to press a button on the phone to then give it a command, but you can't totally control the phone without touching it. You can answer a call with a headset control if you want, but you will have to touch something to answer the phone. I hope this helps.
