Forget it. Jelly Bean update screwed the phone up. Speed dial no longer works. Voice input does not work AT ALL! If you hit the microphone in Navigation, Navigation just shuts off. Voice to text says "Getting Ready" and never comes up. This was a good phone. And we all know how long it takes Motorola to bring out a fix. Gonna try the S3 and .....am I even saying this....maybe an i-Phone. Really getting tired of Android sending out "new" OS's that just screw things up. And no I'm not rooting and trying out ROMs. Don't have the patience for that stuff any longer. Just want a phone that works.
