Disable voice control permanetley

How can I disable voice control on my iPhone 4 it's very annoying because of my case ( the center button is raised out) it's turns on in my pocket all the time. I'll do anything to get rid of it I never use it. I already have the winterboard tweak that's supposed to get rid of it but it doesn't work

Once again another thing you should be able to turn off but no you have to jailbreak your device to be able to do it. No thanks I don't want malware on my iDevice and I don't want to void my warranty.

Is there anything you can do that does not require a jailbreak.

Jailbreaking does not introduce malware. The stuff you install via unofficial sources, like anything from MyRepoSpace.com, can contain malware. But the official default ones do not. Your warranty is very easy to restore. Just plug your iDevice into iTunes and click restore. That's it, warranty back.

Thanks for clearing that up. I still wont do it but at least it does not void your warranty.

Under normal usage a jailbroken iPhone shouldn't get malware. And although jailbreaking voids the warranty, if you get a problem on your iPhone simply restore to the stock iOS and Apple will be none the wiser Boom.

Unless it is broken then you can't restore it. Sorry as much as I wish I can tweak the iOS like I can do windows 7 I will never jailbreak.

Huh? What do you mean, you can't restore it unless it's broken? Just plug it into iTunes, do a full restore and it's a stock iPhone once more. Boom.

Your iPhone can't "break" unless your like really changing its code/manually inserting your own random stuff.

Jailbreaking and downloading jailbreak tweaks won't break your phone.
