    Voice Dialing First to Last Name?

    Advertisement



    Hi all, on my new 8130 I can't seem to get the voice dialer to recognize anything but last name then first when using the app. VZ customer service couldn't help. Maybe that's just the way it is?
    Thanks,
    obs2k

    This function is dependent on how your contacts are organized. If you have them listed by Last, First, then that is how the voice dialing feature will recognize them. Unfortunately, there is no way to have these be independent of each other.

    Thanks for the reply- I made all names first then last in Outlook but even then the voice dialer will only recognize last name first. The 8130 even lists them as first name first but no luck.

    OK, try this...Go to Options > Language > Name Display. Change that to First Last. You can then go to your Address Book > Options > Sort By. You can choose to have them as Last, First in your contacts, while the Voice Dialing recognizes First Last.

    Sorry, for leading you astray, I totally forgot about this.

    russcrypto, it's working now after a wipe and re-sync. I think it may have had problems because I transfered the data from my previous bb, a 7250. Thanks for the help- I'm really enjoying the 8130.
