    I must agree with the OP and the others that hate VoiceDialing right now.

    When the 8100 first came out on TMO, the voice dialing actually worked pretty freaking well. Even if you used it thru the BlueTooth.

    But it seems like the new VAD's are much much worse.

    Just my opinion on all the devices I have played with.

    I had the same exact issue and stopped using it till I read shel's advice.

    So I just first say call, then wait, then same the name. Much higher success rate, thanks!!!!

    Mine works great. Was a liitle rough at first but I agree that the following helps:

    1. Seems to work best with first and last names
    2. Call (or DIAL)...wait for the next prompt.
    3. Works great if I simply speak the numbers also

    Not right everytime but beats wrecking the car.

    I dunno, N8, I gotta disagree. It works fine for me if I take it step by step. The only times I have had trouble with it is when I had lots of background noise (crowds, windows down in the car, music playing)

    Its definitely better than the Motorola and Nokia versions, where you have to train them to your voice before they start to understand you.

    Re: Irritated with the voice activated dialing!!!!!!

    What I've noticed is with the voice dialing if the person info is within my address book, I have to say the name exactly as it is stored in the address book...ex: Doe Jane Sara I would have to say Jane Sara and it brings up several possibilities; and you have to speak clearly and slowly...

    Re: Irritated with the voice activated dialing!!!!!!

    I have been trying it this morning, and speaking slower, and it has been working now about 70% of the time. I went in and made sure that the names are in correctly. If my bluetooth headset is on, am I able to speak into the headset these demands?
    Thanks for your help guys!

    Is that automatic or did you have to set that up?
    I'll have to try it

    I only use first names, and I've never had a problem at all.

    Re: Irritated with the voice activated dialing!!!!!!

    Well I was having problems at 1st and I notice my 9 year old nephew was getting it to work with no problem. He mumbles and talks fast. Go figure, so instead of talking real slow, I talked a little bit faster, and believe it or not it works like 80% of the time. Names like Beth, I say Beeth. You need to sit and play with what works best for you. Evenly you'll figure it out.

    Although, it would be nice if it worked like Dragon Speech, (where it would learn your voice thru repetition).

    If it doesn't with the name, why don't you say the phone number instead?

    I have to say I agree when I first got my tmo pearl the VAD Worked wonderfully, and since I upgraded the OS to .96 it no longer worked as well, whatever change they made when they updated the OS really made it suck.

    Re: Irritated with the voice activated dialing!!!!!!

    I have 101 and had Rogers before that. I must say VAD works well for me 80% of the time. I am very pleased with it especially when I'm stuck in traffic I can spend the time doing some calling and checking on my people at work. The only times it gives me problems is with new names but once I figure out what pronunciation of the name it recognizes, it works like a charm every time.
