    Unhappy Trying to txt with voice actions

    No matter how I say it, I can't get voice actions to put the recipient's name in the TO: box.
    I say: "Send text to Average Joe___Why doesn't this feature work?" Every single time, the TO: box is blank and the message starts with the recipient's first name.

    Is this feature working for you guys?

    it's a hit or miss on that for me too. Try saying the last name for example: Someone is Bob Smith....say "Text smith" and more 80% of the time, it's the person I was going for.

    No, I don't think I did any "learn my voice" program. It's getting all my words right, it just puts them all in the message box.

    First you have to say it like this Text Bob *short-pause* and then your message

    Second, and most important, the Contact has to be synced with your Google Contacts for the Google Voice Actions to pick it up

    Can you explain this to me. I have a gMail account, but I don't have any contacts in there. All of my contacts were loaded onto the phone by either Backup Assistant or when FB loaded everyone (which pissed me off.)

    What is google contacts?

    Google Contacts is associated with your Gmail Account, any contacts you put in your phone contact list will be synced with your Gmail account and any contacts you put in your Gmail contacts will sync with your phone, you just have to choose the sync option in settings/accounts and sync

    OK, I did have it sync'ing... but it only has contact that I added recently. How do I get it to sync all of my phone contacts?

    edit - it appears I have 'google' contacts and 'phone' contacts. How do I push my phone contacts to my google contacts?

    On the D2 I am not sure, the best way I know how to edit contacts is within Gmail on a computer

    In the meantime you should test the Voice Text on the one Google Contact you have

    My voice commands work just fine and I don't use google contacts. I did do the voice learning though.
