    Ok, I can confirm that Voice to Text does work. I managed to find Android Keyboard 2.1 with voice support (wont post a link, but if you Google it, I am sure you will find it). It installed fine and setting it up, I then had the magic option for voice input.

    Works pretty well, but struggled a bit with my broad Scottish brouge. :)

    I have taken it back off as I don't really trust my inputs to an unverified app, but was just interested to see if it works.

    Hopefully we will get an official release in due course. :thinking:

    There doesn't seem to be any voice commands. What's bugging me more is that there doesn't seem to be any way to add a voice "tag" to a contact and then dial it using the tag by speaking over bluetooth? Am I wrong about this because it sounds like a pretty basic feature to me?!

    this link How To Enable Voice To Text - xda-developers

    leads to a way of installing the keyboard part that will alow voice search's but not voice input on messaging etc, using it on my t-mobile uk desire.
    if u enable android keyboard in settings u will loose pinch zoom etc but u can get it back by disabling android k-board.:)

    UPDATE ! i'm suck a plonker, found out i can still pinch zoom with android k-board and by using a long press in the message typing box gives u the option of how to input (select voice) brilliant.:eek: :cool:

    It works for me, as follows...

    Hit the search button (bottom right) to launch the google search tool.
    Hit the microphone soft key (top right) and say "phone ?????".

    Note that you may have to hit the menu button and select "searcheable items", then "People".

    Good Luck.
