Bluetooth headset won't activate voice dialing
Last time I had a blackberry (curve), I could press the button on my jawbone bluetooth earpiece to initiate voice dialing. I just paired my jawbone to my new Bold and it doesn't seem to work. It is paired and I can make calls from the phone itself and talk through the jawbone flawlessly. It disconnects when I'm out of range and auto connects when I get back in range just fine. I'm not sure what else one would have to do to enable this feature. Any suggestions?
make sure ur blue tooth is charged up for 6 hr
ooooookkkkkkkk.... anyone else?
I am not sure if it will fix it, but there is a Bluetooth Option for "Allow Outgoing Calls". You might check that. While you are there scroll down a little and there is also a section called "Services". It has check boxes for Headset, Handsfree .... Oh ya, they are found under the "Set Up Bluetooth" application.
Everything is correct there. Thanks for the suggestions though.
My jawbone won't activate voice dialing either
My Blackberry bold 9000 also pairs fine with Jawbone, but will not voice dial. Hoping someone knows a fix.
Bluetooth problems as well

Just wanted to update. I still haven't been able to get this working, even using 22.214.171.124. So who knows when this is going to be fixed. If one of you guys figure this out, please let us know!

My voice dial works fine over BT, can make a call hitting the button and it stays connected.
I'm running .210 on a Bold.
But can you initiate voice dial with your bluetooh headset (without touching the phone)? Mine works too if I press the side button on my blackberry to initiate voicedial and then speak into my bluetooth headset. But I used to be able to double click my bluetooth headset to initiate the voicedial. I have a storm now and have the same problem so I'm starting to assume now that this feature has been whacked. I don't understand why they would take this feature out, aww well, guess that's what I get for using a blackberry.

With the jawbone II you have to press & hold the top button (not the side button) until you hear a beep, then voice dial will activate. I don't have my original jawbone anymore so I can't tell you for sure that it works the same way, but if it's not working, I'd imagine you need to do the same thing. Damn, I'm happy now! I was seriously ticked that I couldn't get that to work.
Bingo! I was ticked off too until I read the little insert that told me how to do it.
