    I barely ever get it to work accurately. It's easier just to jump to the contact list. I would like to use it in the car, and this is through the handset not bluetooth.
    Otherwise it's AWESOME. I am humbled so far, especially at the app selection.

    Yeah, the voice dial is lacking. The voice search works really though!
    I installed the 'voice dial hf' app, it's $4 but works perfectly, especially in the car. I can wake my phone with the camera button (screenmodewidget app allows that), then press the voice dial af icon and tell it who to call. It works much like BT voice dial, asks if you want to call Mary and you tell it yes or no. It dials on yes or gives another choice on no. Until BT is fully integrated this is a great solution and well worth the $4.

    You know you can use voice search feature for voice dialing...works much better than the "voice dial" app. I have found it to be extremely accurate..maybe it's just my voice. Who knows.

    The text voice and search voice are awesome A+ (except for short voice recognition on texts).
    I had Vlingo on my BB and it was pretty good - they don't have it for droid right now though.
