How about voice dialing from a BT speaker/headset? Dumb phones on Verizon (The Dare, Blackberry, and Motorolas) do this, why can't the Droid?
On the Droid, you have to place the call using voice dial with the Droid's microphone, then after the call connects, transfer the call to BT. Or use a direct dial shortcut, then transfer the call to BT after the call is connected.

i agree about the texting, i wanted to send out a happy thanksgiving group text out yesterday and was very mad when i discovered I couldn't go from my contact list and pick the names.
When you open messages, start typing the number of the person or the contact name...assuming you have them in your contacts...click the person and it will auto-fill the contact then add a comma after. You can then start typing the 2nd contact and third.....just seperate them with commas and hit send.
Sounds more like a rant than anything informational.
Group texting with commas, or Handcent APP. Simple.
I know there's no hard or soft keys for Phone but how hard is it to press the Phone icon? I mean jeez come on people. Although I do agree that I'd like to see an 'Ignore' option for incoming calls.
Favorites can be added easily as layers to Google Maps. Simple work around. Appears just didn't take the time to investigate.
I can stream video from some sites on my DROID... so I don't know what he's talking about.
The camera... not the greatest but my pictures look great... the preview image is fuzzy when taking the picture but actually looking at the image in the gallery or on my PC it's very clear. Guess it's hit or miss with this.
E-mail issues are supposed to be addressed in the Dec 11th patch. Been out less than 30 days!
The sound when the phone turns on is a gripe? Get real... it's a boot sound. Big deal. WOW
Don't get me wrong this device has it's issues but they aren't portrayed in this article. E-mail... ok....but there's more to it... exchange issues, attachment issues... etc. GPS wasn't addressed... there have been issues with it working. Also some issues with contacts duplicating and merging.
Seems to have been written in haste without doing any research.
i dont want to have to start typing their name in, i want to scroll down my contact list and pick them from their. It really shouldnt be this hard to send out a group text.
I know what you mean about scrolling and selecting contacts from the list because I too had the Dare and it was a nice feature but with so many contacts especially now with the Droid, typing in contacts is actually faster than scrolling the list because of the auto-complete - works just like gmail....hmmm smart phone.......
