Safety while driving is so important to us. We're here to offer you the best steps on removing Driving Mode. Are you referring to driving mode in the Settings or in the texting application?

I absolutely hate this "feature."  Your concern about safe driving is admirable, but why does it just randomly turn on when I'm at work, or sleeping?  I have two jobs, job 1 needs to contact me while I'm at job 2; the easiest way to do this is to send a text - only auto reply keeps popping up and saying I'm driving.  Looks like I'm ignoring them.  I want it OFF PERMANENTLY!

PAUBRO78,


While the driving mode is suppose to make life a little easier, it can be irritating in your case. Let’s get this corrected. In Verizon Messages, there is a Settings options. Under Setting, you should see the option for Driving Mode. Under this option, you can uncheck the option for an Auto Reply. This will prevent the device from answering for you. Is this something you can test out further?
