    I have a new Droid 2 running 2.3 and a Bluetooth headset (Samsung HM3500).

    Speech-to-text (of the sort activated by pushing the microphone button in any text-input field) does not work through the Bluetooth headset.

    Oddly, after initially booting up the phone, it works through the built-in microphone. I then activate and pair my headset. Voice recognition doesn't work through the headset (or through the built-in mic). I then disable bluetooth, turn off the headset. Voice recognition continues not to work!

    I know the headset works. And when I press the headset button, it enters "voice command" mode where it asks me to "say a command." This mode works over the Bluetooth headset!

    Also, I tested this behavior in the Voice Recognizer of ApiDemos, and its also broken in the way described above.

    I got voice to text working over bluetooth. First make sure your headset is off. You need to download Vlingo. Do not open. Go to your keyboard settings and select it. Then go to a text entry box and hold till popup. Choose input method and select vlingo. Turn on your headset and click a text box and click the funny looking mic botton on the new keyboard and talk away. I'm not sure how good it is because I have a cheap headset so it doesn't seem to work when I'm driving but it does when I'm stopped. I drive a kenworth but there isn't much road noise. Can someone with a high dollar headset try this and let me know how it works so I know if I want to upgrade. Like I said mine is a $45 one and I'm not even sure what brand. I think I am going to buy one from the truckstop that has the mic that comes way out and the whole thing goes over your head. They are supose to work in the truck better.

    I am literally DESPERATE to find a way of getting voice to text working through my bluetooth car kit (not an on the ear one)

    I have the factory fitted honda kit and it does NOT work with Vingo or without. I also have a parrot kit at home in our other car which i can try with but I fear it won't work.

    When i try with vingo it has the bluetooth icon on the listen screen so it detects it but the mic hears nothing
