Setting up Voice Search on Droid Razr
If your service is with Verizon, you can export your contacts to a CSV file right from the Verizon website. Sign in to your account, go to contacts, and look for the export button. No SD card needed. Then sign in to your Google account, go to contacts, and you can import the contacts from the CSV file. Then from your phone, go to home page, then settings, then accounts. Click on the gmail account, put in password and it should sync and add all contacts. Then the voice search will work! amazing! Hope this helps!

As someone else noted elsewhere, you need to add contacts to GOOGLE (after all, how else can Google continue to "do no evil"!)...that is, I synched my corp account with generic Verizon contacts, and obviously, voice does not "look" there. So, went thru the hassle of "recopying" contacts (did right off PC), and importing to Google, then let phone synch Google account. A "bummer" because right now, I am using Hotmail for better or worse for my private e-mail, and not in a position to move from "monopoly" contender to another...

When i got my shiny new RAZR a week ago, did not expect to be signing up for a second full-time job figuring this kind of stuff out...am actually on the verge of returning phone due to various other "oops" things (like constantly disappearing Favorite Contacts)...not to mention (known) battery issues...
