    Don't know of any, but currently working on grabbing the VAD files off of a Pearl OS and inserting in an 8700. Obviously will be posted here once/if successful.

    As of right now, no release date on the 4.2 OS for the 8700 series.

    And on that note, the 8700 4.2 Beta OS does NOT include voice dialing: only voice notes.

    I saw something on Handango for $6 that I was going to try. I have the 8700e through Sprint. Handango has a free trial that I am going to try first.

    Re: Voice Dialing

    I have the VoiceControl $6/month service on my Verizon 8703e and it works OK, but it is slow, so I tend to only use it when It is inconvenient to hit buttons or when I have a fairly long email to type. It will let you dictate up to 20 words in an email. I have found the voice regonition ability to be very good. Background noice can be a problem, though, so if you have a noisy car a really good microphone will be needed. I have the new BlackBerry / RIM HS-655 Bluetooth Headset on order so I'll come back and report when it comes in. It will be interesting to see how VoiceControl and the voice activation features that come with the bluetooth device compliment each other.

    Cingular also offers voice dial service.

    The bluetooth headset makes the VoiceControl service really shine. I don't know how, but now it works faster. I just wish there was a BlackBerry Bluetooth button signal which triggerred the Profile button (which VoiceControl requires to start their program) -- then I could do all my calling, messageing, and web browsing without ever touching my 8703e.
