    It seems to be more responsive then the voice dialers on other phones I've had.

    Comes in quite handy when I'm in traffic and can't take the time to search for someone's name or number.

    I do use it occasionally.

    So far I like it. You can adjust the sensitivity on it, but I havent had any problems with my curve. I need to use it more than I do. I have a bad habit of looking up contacts while driving. Have yet to try it with bluetooth.

    If you only have 4 or 5 names in your contact list it probably works fine. But if you have more than that it's a big headache. Deleted it

    Cannot use it, it never gets the name right. I had a Motorola W490 prior to becoming an addict and the voice dialing on that was far superior to the Pearl's. Its getting deleted!

    I only use it in the car with my bluetooth. It is usually accurate unless I don't speak clearly. I also found it works much better when you use both first and last names for your contacts. Wouldn't be without it in the car.
    I agree with it being accurate when using both first and last names. The only time i have any trouble with name recognition is when i use any type of slang as a contact name. Overall it works for me.

    It confuses between similar sounding names and then its annoying to keep saying NO NO NO until the fourth and correct name comes up...by then I can easily dial w/o the voice command and probably start the conversation already. But I dont hate it...could be useful once in a while although I havent truly needed it even once as yet...maybe next time I'm driving...!

    Have an 8830 and love voice dialing. Use it all the time when am driving. It very rarely gets the name and number combination wrong.

    I Used To Hate It And Decided To Never Use It On My Old 8830, But Now That I Have The Curve I Feel That Is Much Better And I Use It All The Time With My Bluetooth.

    I can't rule out my own tendency to mumble. I've got it under control now, though. I take Curve out of the holster, and after I give the command, I look at the screen to see if the contact I want is at least in the 3 choices. If it is, I quickly scroll to it and push the trackball. How's that for technology in action!

    I really have no use for it but I guess it is kind of cool to have if you want check your battery, etc., when you're driving and using your BT.

    Hardly ever use it. however, should I need the use of it, then it's there as a proven method of using my phone hands free. :-)

    Right now I'm hating it. I posted this in another thread, but every so often the voice dial will start initializing on its own and usually in the middle of the night. So when I get up in the morning, I'll see the "...initializing..." and the battery is drained! Don't know if it's the device or what. I'll have to give tech support a call.

    It's the one thing on this phone that I hate. My cheap KRAZR had a much more advanced voice dialing feature- in that it actually recognized what you were saying and called the right number.

    About all I can get the Berry voice dialing to recognize is "Status".

    Does anyone know if there is an alternate applet that can be installed to do this? The software the factory loaded is junk.

    I spent four hours on the phone with BB Tech Support...they had me email my address book, I use MS Outlook, I have 4600 contacts... only 2 MB file, they say the number of entries should not be a problem... yet it still doesn't work. I don't have any other extraneous applications loaded... so dont think its a memory issue... but it just doesnt work... I'm beginning to think going back to simply a phone is the solution... like the KRAZR which Consumer Reports rates high. The keys are so small it's hard to enter phones numbers while driving... that's why I wanted voice commands...Oh well, technolology doesn't seem to be there yet.

    Okay, at the risk of sounding like an *****, I thought my voice dialing was totally broken too.. And then I realized you have to say "Call [name]"

    haha, it was a stupid mistake, but i hope this helps someone..

    just curious, how many contacts do you have? I have a bunch, 4600 and wonder if that's too many, although tech support says its based on file size, which is 2 MB... no big deal, but doesn't work, period.
