    Hi Everyone,

    I cant seem to sort out how to do voice to text messages on my new HTC desire. It works fine in the google search app. But when I go to send messages I dont seem to have the option? I do see the little microphone icon on the keypad...but this just asks me what language to send the texts in.

    Any suggestions?

    I am also wondering what everyone's favourite messaging app is???

    Get the Vlingo app and try that. It works pretty nicely for me.

    I just press the microphone key, but then i'm using a SlideIT keyboard. I seem to remember the mic key on the standard keyboard doing the same thing though. Have you tried a long press?

    As suggested above it's a long press on the standard keyboard.

    I agree with Graboid, get Vlingo. It is really simple to use and seems very accurate in terms of voice to text translation. It also has a bunch of hand free features for in the car such as simple bluetooth dialling and will even read out any texts you receive.
