    When I try to use the updated voice actions such as "Send text to Alex" or whomever is on my contact list, all I get is a blank TO: window on the text and a MESSAGE: window that reads "Send text to Alex".
    Why is the droid not entering the name of the person on the TO: window?
    Other actions, such as, "Call" (some restaurant or school) in (whatever town) works fine as does the "navigate to"

    droid 1 not rooted.

    Instead of saying "Send Text To Alex" try saying "Text Alex" with a quick pause and then your message

    Like this........Text Alex *quick pause* Why isn't my voice search working

    If you just say "Text Alex" it still goes in the message field ?
