    I am considering the Galaxy Nexus when my next upgrade is available. One thing holding me back is that the default "Voice Dialer" in previous android versions is not completely handsfree - i.e. there are no voice prompts or they are not available over bluetooth and there is either no confirmation or confirmation cannot be completed handsfree. Does this problem still exist on the Galaxy Nexus/ICS?

    Thanks.

    It hasn't existed since 2.2 came out.

    The Droid X uses the third-party Nuance Voice Commands rather than the Android Voice Dialer. When I tried the Voice Dialer from CyanogenMod on my X, I got only a beep when to speak and no voice confirmation.

    Strange, I always got voice prompts on my OG droid on 2.2.

    There were bugs in CyanogenMod so maybe that is it. Can you confirm a call without touching the phone?

    Was it for 2.3? I'm not sure about the others, but when the OG starting getting GB ROMs the bluetooth lady didn't work for close to half a year. I believe it eventually got fixed kind of...

    I have the Droid X with 2.3 so that is what I was trying. I am aware of the issues with the ROMs. What I haven't been able to determine is if the bug was a ROM issue or an OS issue.

    I'm fairly positive it was a ROM issue.

    I'm not getting any bluetooth dialer voice prompts with my Nexus... none at all... it's almost as bad as my original Droid when it came out. Is anyone else having this problem? What can I do?

    Ok, there's a correction... the bluetooth prompt isn't nonexistent, just extremely quiet... so quiet it's completely useless.

    The voice dialer on the nexus is HORRIBLE.
    It doesn't prompt to make sure it's dialing the correct person and there is no adaptation as there is on the Droid X.
    I just tried installing voice commands from the X via titanium backup, it force closes.
