    Droid 2.2 Voice Dialing with BT device????

    Anyone try to Voice Dial with Bluetooth Device since update? It either dials randomly as soon as I hit button on Jawbone Icon or it's volume is very low and the sound has poor quality. Anyone else try it yet?

    Same for me - can't hear "say a command" and it is a bit distorted. Verizon tech gave me a new phone, same thing. Gotta be a bug. Did email exchange with Motorola support and they responded with a canned email on turning up music. Further emails turned up nothing.... I don't think they really read the emails.....

    Voice dial works fine for me. The voice is almost impossible to understand, but if I push my headset call button and say Call ***** after the garbled voice, it dials the number fine. It should ask for confirmation though and not just repeat who I'm trying to call, like my old LG enV used to. The bigger problem that I an having is that the screen comes back on when I BT voice dial, which allows the BT and speaker icons to be pushed randomly while in my pocket. This seems to be a new 2.2 feature.

    It has to come back on. How else are you going to get to the number pad if the screen doesn't come on? This isn't a problem it's a necessity, however I can see where it could be a problem but that's going to be one you're going to have to learn to live with.

    I find that it's 50/50 on Voice Dial. It works fine for me, my wife and brother can't get theirs to work properly. Definitely not as good as it should be.

    It is a problem and it is not a necessity when using BT. It never did this until 2.2. I've made and answered hundreds of BT calls since I got the Droid last November and it has never come on until 2.2. If you do a Google search, you will discover in some other forums that this is a new feature of 2.2. This makes BT calling nearly useless. If I need the number pad, I will turn the screen on, just like I had to do until 2.2.

    My wife also has a new Ally, running 2.1, and it doesn't do this. The Ally works just like my Droid did until 2.2.

    Voice doesn't work with BT or holding phone to ear

    It is true, it does hear me very well and will interpret my commands very well. Better than my old krazer. But what good is it at 75 miles per hour while dodging other maniacs on the NJ Turnpike when you can not hear what it is saying? Not knowing when to speak or if it even understood you or if it is even dialing the correct number?

    There is clearly (pun) a bug in this thing and it is consistently bad with or without BT.

    It is clear where the engineering effort was and was not. In short, if they were going after the blackberry or business customer (me) they would have made sure it worked as a phone first. Beyond all the other cool stuff, the thing is a tool and its primary function is as a phone (at least to a business person).

    Howza bout not sorting by last name first? Business users are not their primary concern.
