Ziplip Voice Search not working as expected/Not same as Motorola Droid

Hello everyone,

I have recently purchased a Samsung Mesmerize, and I'm having issues with the Voice Search function. I am unable to use it to call contacts, or call local businesses as I can on my Motorola Droid. Let me give you some examples:

<Press Voice Search App, wait for prompt> say Call Nancy Waters Mobile
(This calls contact Nancy Waters at the Mobile #)

<Press Voice Search App, wait for prompt> say Call Best Buy Janesville Wisconsin
(This Google Searches the Number for Best Buy in Janesville, WI, and Displays it, and calls it automatically.)

<Press Voice Search App, wait for prompt> say Call Voicemail
(obviously, this dials voicemail)

All of these work flawlessly on the Droid. On the Mesmerize, all of the spoken words are entered into a Google Search. It literally says, "Call Nancy Waters Mobile" in the browser w/ Google Search results.

I've verified the Settings > Search > Searchable Items dialog, all are checked. One note: the Web checkbox that I have on the Droid is not present on the Mesmerize. Clearly Voice Search DOES search the web since no matter what I say gets correctly recognized and websearched. I'm not sure what else to do to rectify this issue. Any ideas?

If you find an answer to this, let me know.

It does not work on my Droid X or my wife's Droid Incredible. Never has, even after the recent updates.

I just tested it on mine, using both the quick search button on the phone, and accessing the app through the app menu.

It worked for me both times.
