    When my Droid2 auto locks (after 10 minutes) I can receive but not place any calls with my bluetooth. Not handy while driving ... have to press the un-sleep button, then swipe the screen lock, then draw the pattern lock, then I can give a voice command. Any way around this?

    The only way I know is to not lock the device.
    It will work if the slide lock is on but there is no password.

    Not working when the device is locked has to be a security feature to prevent your phone from being used if it is stolen.

    I am assuming you are not using a car dock. Car dock keeps the phone on, and unlocked.

    Welcome to the Android Forums, try pressing the button that you use to answer your phone once on your bluetooth, it should prompt voice commands, it does on mine anyways.

    That is how it works but if the device is locked with a password nothing happens after initiating the voice commands. It doesn't work if the phone is locked.

    Maybe the password is the deciding factor. Turn the lock off while in the car and try it that way.
