    Bluetooth voice dialing?

    I read in another thread that you can't do voice dialing with the Moto Droid. You have to look at and touch the unit. Is this true? If so that's a deal killer for me. I'm considering getting a droid phone, but I have to be able to make calls without looking at the phone. To me that's a safety issue. I have a long commute and often have to make short calls while driving. Does the Incredible have this issue also?

    As far as I know, this is a current limitation of all Android phones. You must initiate the voice command by first touching the screen.

    That's a huge step backward!

    Did the people who developed Android have a total lack of common sense? I guess I'll have to wait until they address this issue. I wouldn't be surprised to see some states make it illegal to even sell a cell phone that won't do hands free calling.

    I have a long freeway commute and almost every day I see cars whose drivers are obviously paying very little attention to their driving. Taking your eyes off the road to dial your phone is good way to kill somebody.

    Some Bluetooth handsfree kits implement voice dialing themselves, then pass the number on. I know that some Parrot kits do. There are others, and probably headsets with that ability, too.

    I haven't found mention of any Bluetooth headsets for Android that are totally hands free. You still have to look at and touch the screen to initiate a call. With my KRZR dumb phone I just tap the head set and then say Call Someone where Someone is a person in my contact list.

    I was told a few weeks ago that the new update would fix this from a Verizon store rep. Guess he lied to me. I've been looking forward to this too.

    Bluetooth dialing

    It's my understanding that it will require a change to Android to address this issue.

    Strange. It works for me. The other day day someone cut me off on the freeway and I yelled, YOU STUPID SOB! Next thing I know my phone is dialing and the lady who answered it said, "White House. May I help you?"

    Milestone

    Is it totally hands free? Can you make a call by just tapping the headset without ever looking at or touching the phone?
