I bought the Nokia Lumia 920 this past October because of the great reviews and the AT&T store employee informed me that it was the best made phone available. I have to say that it has caused me so much aggravation. First of all, the voice recognition CONSTANTLY opens when I am mid-text, watching a Youtube video, on a phone call...... Pretty much whenever I am doing something, voice recognition opens and it is really annoying. Any ideas on turning it off completely? When this phone does not open voice recognition, the Bing search opens. Both of these apps open whenever they want. Also, what's with the phone being so far behind? When I bought this phone, I read that we would have Instagram before the end of 2012. Here we are in May of 2013 and still no Instagram! If a phone wants to be in the running for the best phone out there, they may want to consider making Apps that are most popular available for the phone. This includes Apps like Instagram and SnapChat. I was tempted to buy the iPhone, but was talked out of it. There are fabulous features available for the Nokia Lumia, however, these minor problems with the phone make the phone hard to love.

Unless Instagram says it's coming out themselves, then you can't take anybody's word for it. There is a solution available in the form of Instagraph/Metrogram or WPGram to tide you over until Itsdagram comes out.
As for apps that you want specifically on the platform, you need to tell the developers you want it made. Forum readers can't make the apps appear.
If you're having issues with the hardware, send it to Nokia for testing/repair or get AT&T to replace the device.

It sounds like you're holding down the search button.
Otherwise, I have no idea why you'd get those search and voice recognition issues. It doesn't happen to me. So I can't relate.
As for Instagram, that's up to Instagram. It's not up to the makers of the phone or operating system.

Go to settings -> speech: make sure the read aloud incoming text messages turn off or only for Bluetooth only if you want it to read message while in the car. I think it may set to 'always on'. If you want to turn it off completely, uncheck the box "Enable Speech Recognition Service". As for Instagram, it may come when they release Nokia 928, but I'm not pretty sure on that.

I accidentally hit browser button when I'm typing fast. And as far as voice recognition you have to long press. So I don't understand why it's doing that, unless it only happens when your texting, in that case you must hitting the mic icon -- if none of our advise works, then maybe you should let Nokia have a look at your phone, as they have brilliant customer service.

Since it's the two apps on the bottom of the screen that you're having issues with I'm pretty sure its the way you are holding it. A few times a week I'll accidentally launch Bing search or voice recognition but I know its not the phones fault, it's mine.

Normally, I would think you're just crazy or unable to operate a handheld. But in this case, I believe you and understand what is happening. This is a faulty device. A friend of mine has the Lumia 900 and it is having the same problem. With no human input, his phone will sound the familiar chirp and be ready for voice input. Like your problem, his will also do this while he is in the middle of typing a message. More interesting is that it will also happen while he is talking on the phone. So again, while the device is just laying on a table with no hands around it, voice activation begins for no apparent reason (unless there is a poltergeist thing going on...) I suggest that you contact Nokia directly and have the phone repaired/replaced.
