    Using Incredible while driving.

    Hi.

    My boss recently bought an Incredible.

    He's having a real problem using it while driving, especially considering the fact that he can't dial using his bluetooth headset.

    Anyone have suggestions as to how he can streamline his calling and/or switching between calls?

    Thanks

    I have a suggestion that I'm sure you boss won't appreciate. Pull over to the side of the road. Park. Talk on the phone.

    Put direct dial contacts on a screen, so that one touch dialing is possible. Use voice dial when possible, to avoid looking down.

    Obviously I won't condone people driving and talking, but everyone does it and its better to suggest better ways to do it than to say "pull over".

    Direct dials and voice dial has made things pretty easy, for me at least.

    A rational suggestion, no doubt, but not entirely doable.

    He runs a limousine service and often is under severe time constraints yet still must make phone calls.

    Thanks though.

    First let me get you in the correct area. What about using Bluetooth? There are apps in the market that he can get so that he can do handsfree calling. Just requires pushing the camera button.

    Vlingo is also an option...you can give commands like dial bob or dial whatever number. I use my droid on the GPS stand and dial that way

    Personally I can't believe this was overlooked in the build of these phones, all my old cell phones had this feature. I don't like using my phone anyway in my car, but at times it's necessary. We have all this new technology at our finger tips and yet they couldn't give us bluetooth hands free dialing? Nuts, big oversight IMO.

    ...get a BT headset with built-in voice dialing.

    Personally, I don't take or place calls in my car. First, it's a manual and my hands are busy as it is. Second, it's a convertible so wind/engine/road noise is an issue anyway. Running a limo service is one thing but I've never found a personal (or work) call that was so urgent that it couldn't wait. Obviously, YMMV.
