When I restart my Samsung Galaxy S2 (GT-I9100), I get an error message:

Voice Command

An unexpected server error occurred. Please try again.

[OK]

This started ever since I download the trial version of (redacted) earlier tonight, but its still happening even after I uninstalled it.

I've not accepted the Voice Command agreement. Whenever I accidentally activate it by pressing the home key the wrong way, I select Decline.

What does this error message actually mean?

I've removed the name of the software I had coincidentally downloaded. I'm now seeing lots of people posting similar questions in other forums and they can't all have downloaded the same app. –  Bill P. Godfrey Jun 18 '13 at 10:55
    
This question has got nearly 40k views in just two days. I can't remember if this has ever happened before on Android Enthusiasts. I would also guess that it is a server issue. –  Flow Jun 19 '13 at 9:16

I was getting this error constantly today, so I went to SettingsApplicationsAllVoice Command. From there I clicked Force StopOK then Clear DataOK. Then I relaunched the voice command by tapping the microphone button on my Google search widget.

The Voice Command worked perfectly, and I haven't seen the error message in about an hour.

That seems to do the trick for me too. I'll post here again if it comes back. Many thanks. –  Bill P. Godfrey Jun 18 '13 at 6:36

I followed these steps (force stopped and cleared data) and when I reopened it with double click middle button, same error message straight away before I get a chance to accept the license terms. –  Tom Jun 18 '13 at 8:36

Did not work. Samsung GS2, Sprint. –  Jasmine Jun 18 '13 at 19:55

For now, you can disable voice commands from Settings->Applications. I am sure it is a Samsung server issue.

On this forum someone mentioned the following:

I just called samsung technical support. Google voice has a problem with their server in the mean time you can disable voice command under settings - applications - All - voice command click that then click disable. Was told the message will stop popping up. Tech # 1800-762-7864

I did notice the same problem on my SGS2 yesterday but I haven't seen any error messages since yesterday evening so I suspect the issue has been resolved by either Samsung or Google.
