    Voice Dialing Question

    Advertisement



    I give up wasting time, maybe someone out there has an answer. I just purchased the new Red Pearl, and absoutely love it. Have one question concerning the Voice Dialing system. In my address book I have listed the first name first then the last name, but when I use the voice dialing I have to say their last name first, then their first name. I don't think it should work that way. So I did some further investigating. When I click on one of my saved names, in the blue section above their information, their name is listed last name then their first name. I've tried everything I can to readjust it to show first name then last name, and nothing seems to work. Now my wife has the same pearl and her's lists the frist name then the last name in the blue highlighted area. How in the world can I get the name to show up first then last in that specific area? I did delete the name from the SIM card, and that didn't do a thing.

    Confused in Colorado,

    Jim

    I dont know, I never use lsat names in my Address book.

    But I'd try a hard reset, did you take try to put the first name in the last name area, and vice versa?

    Re: Voice Dialing Question

    Thanks for coming back to my question. I've rebooted many times, and have deleted my entire address book from the handheld, and the SIM card, pulled the battery, then synchronized once more. Same silly outcome. This is crazy, and it's causing me to pull the last of my hair out (not much left as it is). And, yes I did do the name switch, and that did switch it in the highlighted area when I click on the name in the address book. For instance, if I had a name of Jim Smith in my address book and clicked on the name, the highlighted area above his information would say Smith, Jim. When I switched it in my address book prior to synching, to Smith Jim, then synced up, when I clicked on the name, the highlighted area would indicate Jim, Smith (the comma in between). This is absolutely mysterious to me. I hate to even say I'm an IT guy (duh). Thanks again.

    Hmmmmmm, I guess I have the millions out there stumped. Well, I'll just keep playing and getting more and more frustrated. Or, maybe I'll take that 1 suggestion and just put in first names. Hope I don't have any friends with the same first names like: Jim, Bill, Bob, Tom, Susan, Barbara, some of those very uncommon names (lol).

    Re: Voice Dialing Question

    Thanks Superdad. Yes, I checked that out, and it is by first name. When I go to my address book they are ALL listed by first name, but when I left click on a name and go to view, the name at the very top (sorta highlighted) is last name then a comma then the first name. I cleared out my SIM, and then rebooted my Pearl, and resynced this thing, and still it appears the same. Boy I wish someone could come up with an answer. I put mine next to my wife's who has the same model and purchased on the same day, and all looks the same, but her's is perfect....grrrrrrrr. Maybe when she's sleeping I'll switch (lol). Thanks again,

    Jim

    I vote on switching phones with your wife :-)
    Did you try going to options>Language> then scroll down to where it says "Name Display" I have mine set at first name, last name.
    Hope this helps!
