    Had it for 4 hours and like it very much but....

    What is it with no voice dialing with bluetooth? I never even checked on this feature. I just assumed it would be there. Potential deal breaker for me. I can't be fumbling for my phone to dial when I drive.

    I don't use my BT all that much, and hadn't even tried it on the Droid yet. I'm hoping you've just missed something, because BT without voice dialing may as well not be there at all. Now i have to go investigate... dangit!

    Let me know if you find anything. A third party app would be acceptable.

    If you put the phone in the car dock you can just hit the voice command button and say call whoever and it will work, the voice recognition has been very good for me, you can also say dial and then the number and it will work too.

    I agree that not having voice dialing through bluetooth was kind of dumb on a phone like this, but I bet it will be available with an update at some point.

    The only way that I have seen to dial through bluetooth is with a hands-free bluetooth kit that stores its own contact information, then the hands-free kit dials through the phone. Doubt that I would go out and buy one just for that, but I have one built into my car, so thats what I use.

    I too have a real problem with this. While not a deal breaker it is certainly a stupid oversight!!!
