    Yeah! I find the voice dialing so cool. My friends think I'm an idiot because they think it takes longer to dial a number then to just go to my recent call log. But I think they're just jealous!
    Love my first BlackBerry (Pearl)!

    I did not know my Pearl can do that too! What other commands can it recognize? Is there a list somewhere?

    Oh what fun! That edit trick WORKED!... just as I was nearly ready to throw my Pearl out as a fishing lure. Not that I fish.

    Re: anybody not impressed yet with voice dialing!

    I just got a new 8800 and was amazed at the voice recognition for finding contacts and dialing numers.

    However, I do not know how to handle "company directory" dial by name when I call a customer and have to spell a name with numbers. They are not on the keys like a cell phone and even if I memorized the locations I will likely drive into a tree trying to spell out the name with the tiny little keys.

    Any ideas?

    I love the voice dial functions.... But I wish there was a "check time" command. It'd be very useful when the BB is in the holster and my hand free is on.

    One Problem that took me a day to solve with no one in the t-mobile store even able to help me was with voice dialing. I couldnt make voice dialing work by name for any entry in my address book, but after hours of trying suddenly realized that voice dialing by name worked for a new entry that I had put into my address book, after I activated the Pearl. It didn't work for ANY of the addresses that I had transferred from my 7105t.

    THE SOLUTION: Which I discovered by trial and error, is to open the old addresses from the 7105t in EDIT mode. After that, merely SAVE it again and voila, voice dialing works fine for that entry.

    I'm assuming that this is a bug as it is quite a pain to have to open hundreds of address book enntries in edit mode and then save them again, but so far this is the only solution that I have discovered.

    After you do this fix, voice dialing by name works virtually 100% of the time...awesome!

    try switching languages - it rescanns the address book ( say from US english ot UK english and back again..)

    I've never been too pleased with it. I guess I talk funny... or maybe I should add some last names.

    Re: anybody not impressed yet with voice dialing!

    I have had issues with it, it worked perfectly for me initially but it seems that each time I upgraded the os it got worse and worse, I also noticed that it works differently depending on the bluetooth headset. But if the edit save trick works ill be happy once more with the voice dialing feature.

    You will need to hold down the ALt Key when pressing the letters.

    It isn't voice SMS, but check out www.jott.com. There's your voice emailing. Have to sync your address book, but not that big of a deal.

    I use it most to 'Jott Myself' when I am driving and don't want to try and write down a note that comes to mind. It transcribes by voice and emails it back to me where I can easily copy it into a To Do or whatever.

    Its great for blasting messages to groups too. I use it for soccer tournaments. If there is a field change, I can Jott all of the parents with one phone call, and they all get an email on their BB or a text/SMS if they don't have mobile email with the field change. So I guess there is your text SMS too if you have the person's sms address setup as an email address in your address book.
