Go to MENU, SETTINGS AND TOOLS, SOUNDS SETTINGS, READOUT, then select FLIP OPEN AND TALK, turn it off.

You can turn off the prompt ("please say a command") by going to "Menu," "Settings and Tools,"Phone Settings," "Voice Command Settings," "Voice Settings," "Sound," "Prompts," then selecting "Off."
This helps if you're like me and you accidentally hit the voice commands button in your pocket from time to time.

When it says: Please say a command, just say cancel

The only thing the "solution" does is turn off all of the verbal prompts.
If you press the voice button while the phone is closed, it then tries to figure out who you want to call. All that solution does is make this process soundless.
You can still, as I have done, have my phone dial my father's number when the button got "pushed" in my pocket and the phone interpreted all of the back ground noise of unlocking a door, stepping in, and re-locking as a request to phone my father!
All the "soluiton" will do is make the voice command process relatively silent!
By the time I got the phone out of my pocket, my father had answered the phone - at 2:23 AM!
Anytime there are buttons that can be pressed when the phone is closed, there must be a way to inactivate the buttons while the phone is closed
It is the actual voice recognition feature that people want to disable/turn of.

Testimonial: "I was thinking since I do not use this feature to either remove the button from the phone a use a dab of silicone glue to make it unpushable. thanks "
After calling Verizon Customer Service, this is the best they could come up with for me. Locking the phone, and that alone is a hassle but it will stop your phone from trying to make outgoing calls while in your pocket(hey, I thought that's why they were made to be flip phones in the first place.) Easiest way to do this is as follows.
press MENU, 9, 6, 6. Enter code(last four digits of your phone number). then press 4. Phone is locked.
To change the code repeat the first part, and press 1 instead of 4, press 1 again, and follow instructions.
If for some reason numbers don't work, press MENU, SETTINGS&TOOLS, PHONE SETTINGS, SECURITY, Enter code, then LOCK PHONE NOW.
to change code, same thing, and instead of LOCK PHONE NOW, go to EDIT CODES, then PHONE ONLY.
After locking the phone, you can close the phone not worry about it taking photos or trying to make calls from voice recognition commands. You can still receive calls, and when you open the phone it will ask for the code, enter the code, and it will be unlocked. You will then have to do the same thing I explained above to lock it again.
This is the most annoying problem I ever experienced with a phone. The only other thing I thought of is taking the phone apart, and somehow disabling the buttons or breaking them.

I know this question is very old, but I since I found it while looking for a solution, I figured others might too. I used the Bloatware Freezer app to "freeze" the Voice Commands (Nuance) app. This essentially disables it and 'hides' it from the system. If you have other apps that use the Voice Command's functionality, those apps may not function properly, obviously, but this is still a solution to the nuance Voice Commands coming up when you don't want it to.

With this problem, the Smooth is completely unacceptable as a pocket phone. Samsung and the vendors should issue a firmware update to address it (assuming these phone can have their firmware upgraded in the field).
But I can imagine an effective home solution. Using a hot glue gun, it would be possible to build a small nub on the side of the phone next to the voice button. This would protect it and make pocket presses much less likely. The same thing might also be possible with a few applications of plastic glue.
If I get mad enough at this problem and attempt this remedy, and if it works, I'll post a picture somewhere and post the location here.
