    vlingo is one of my heavily relied on apps. Had freebie vers 2.0 on my Curve and it worked flawlessly. I went to vlingo site to get it for Tour and see in spring this year they released vers 3 which has partial service (i.e. won't text to anyone unless they are also a vlingo user). In order to get full use of it like freebie 2.0 had you now have to purchase at $17.99. So I went the long way round and installed 2.0 on my Tour from a backup I did from my Curve. But 2.0 wants to hang in "listening" mode on the Tour, for ages.

    So if vlingo is working I'm wondering what version you're running?
    Guess if I had to fork over $17 I would, I like the app that much.
    Unless there's another freebie voice command app out there that's good?

    Oh geez I'm having a floopy day.

    That should read "Voice recognition software" not voice command. Changed my thread title.

    I *think* I'm running 2.0. But I can't get past setting up the convenience key. I have tried setting both to nothing (via the screen/keyboard options), but when vlingo asks me to test it, vligno is not detecting it and I can't get past that point.

    Bummer because I'm missing the app as well! Not sure if I would pay $17.99 for it though

    Hi Wayne,
    If you go to Options on home screen, then Advanced Options at first screen, then Applications you'll see all your apps listed. Scroll down to vlingo and hit BB menu button, then View Properties, you'll see full software version number listed there.

    I'm running 2.0.0.17434. It picked up my convenience key immediately (it was set to Nothing by factory default), but then started to hang when in listening mode.

    Bummer it's not a fully functional freebie anymore.

    Thank you VTshorty78! I found the vlingo 2.1 zip file in the Storm thread
    here Unzipped to my PC desktop.
    Crazy thing is I get error via Desktop Mgr that it's not compatible with my Device. Has to be a way around this because I loaded vs. 2.0 from Desktop Mgr with no issues.

    Any thoughts anyone?

    EDIT: should have refreshed browser window, see you guys are way ahead of me. How did you get it to load?!

    2nd EDIT: Correction on link posted here. Once downloaded and installed, it shows that it's vers 2.0, not 2.1 Link to download for 2.1 is below.

    i've used vlingo now w/out problems. however; fyi, i have noticed that when battery power is low, it stalls and freezes. i think i read this somewhere online as well. also there seems to be an issue with it opening opera mini, though it recognizes the command. on that note, i can honestly say that the bb browser is still better on this os (i used opera mini on the 8130 i had, and it was loads better..but again the new 4.7 os is making a HUGE difference in everything). i'm actually going to uninstall opera mini because of my own personal findings.

    Has anyone been able to get the paid version of Vlingo to work with the Tour??

    I'm willing to pay for it, but it gives me a connection error whenever I try to upgrade to the paid version.

    arggh, still problems.
    grooves12, I'm getting the connection error on vers 2.1
    Can't figure out yet why.

    First, there are some corrections to links & versions posted above.
    This link is for vlingo 2.0. Storm_Warning has it posted as a .zip file. njnets21 and I both linked to it in posts above. Vers 2.0 worked for njnets21 but not for me.

    This threads contains an OTA download link for vlingo 2.1 (2.1 is last freebie version released before vlingo went to 3.0 pay version this past spring, and 2.1 is the one that seems to be working best for Storm & Tour owners)

    So I got 2.1 installed. Got past setup. Did a test IM and it worked. Tried a test email next, and there is goes again. Hangs on "listening" and then I get message "Request Timeout...Please check your network and try again."

    I have been tweaking settings and can't get this to work.

    In frustration with 2.1 went ahead & downloaded the trial version of 3.0 for Tour OS. Won't let me send texts or emails a) unless I purchase or b) unless recipient is vlingo user also. Gave it a quick try out. Was able to do a memo to self, a web search, a phone call and that's it. Tried a second phone call it promptly started giving me the "Request Timeout....check your network and try again", just like I got with 2.1.

    Sheesh this is aggravating. I just don't get what could be causing that network connection error. I set all Permissions to "Allow" on both versions. Went into vlingo Options, changed network from Direct TCP to BIS for the heck of it, same thing, "Request Timeout...check your network..."

    I downloaded the 2.1 off one of the links here. It does not work with my Verizon Tour. It works for a couple of functions, then gets bogged down with the device network and times out. The free version of 3.0 works better with my Tour, but not perfect. Here's the official word from vlingo about the tour:

    'Hi folks,

    We know the 9630 Tour is a hot device and a lot of you want to put Vlingo on it. So do we! That said... we've tested Vlingo on the Tour and found some issues that need to be cleaned up before we can support that device. We're currently addressing those and we expect to have a new build available for the Tour in the first week or two of August. Please check vlingo for download availability then.

    Steve @ Vlingo'

    Looks like us Tour owners will just have to wait, and pay up for full function Vlingo in August. I'm cool with that. It seems like a deal if they get all the bugs out.

    Bummer - I finally got around to trying 2.1 on my Tour, but ended up with the same timeout issues.

    I see from the vlingo website that paid version is $17.99 which is almost $20 CN. Ouch. I wish it was $5-$10. I'll have to think twice about paying that. But I probably will, because I am missing this app.

    I've been hopping back & forth between 3.0 trial and 2.1 freebie so much I'm afraid I'm going to mess up my phone. 2.1 will work for a day or so, then Network Timeouts start.

    3.0 trial works just fine lately (got timeouts at first with that one too), but have to pay to get full functionality. Problem is, current 3.0 is not Tour compatible per Vlingo's site. So I wonder if we do go ahead and pay if it won't work right still?

    I dunno, I wish that dude that works at Vlingo would resurface here again and give us the scoop on that one. I really need this app too...

    Yeah, I noticed that on my BOLD. I need to try and reinstall it on my BOLD. However, BB AppWorld won't work or reinstall while using .130 for me.

    I purchased the upgraded version of Vlingo (Vlingo Plus). I finally got it downloaded, but when I go to activate with the registration key, I get the similar error "UNABLE TO CONNECT - PLEASE CHECK YOUR NETWORK & TRY AGAIN."

    Does anyone know how to get past this or if there is a way to do the registration from your desktop rather than the phone?

    I am a new BB user (have the Tour), so I may be asking a redundant question - sorry if I am.

    I purchased my Vlingo from Handango.

    Any help appreciated!

    To stop the aggravation from setting in, I would just contact CS on AppWorld/Handango that will go directly to the vlingo. Yah, upgraded to V+ and had to contact CS because link had issues. Got it resloved. Then changed betas to another and it stopped working for me and others.

    Thanks, appreciate that info. No point in buying now, will just wait it out.

    outshiner: I'd suggest contacting vlingo, would think (hopefully) that they would set you up with Tour version at no extra charge when it comes out in a couple weeks. I got that Network error on my first go round with Vlingo Plus trial, must be because it's just not quite Tour ready. It's a good program, I used it on Storm and Curve 8330. Once it's functioning for Tour it won't disappoint!
