    Hello,
    Was curious if anyone that is running one of the newer roms could comment on how Vlingo runs.. Specifically if the known issues with Vlingo and Bluetooth are actually corrected with the newer OS.

    Hey Rodney,
    The latest version of Vlingo (2.5.6.1) runs great on Android device's running OS 2.0 or greater. In order to get full bluetooth functionality, you'll need to be running OS 2.2 or higher.

    Not true.. On my Samsung Charge running that OS.. I can not make any bluetooth commands work (not received by phone)

    It will transfer the call after using the phone to initiate the call..It on occasion will broadcast the command through the phone causing feedback

    I have been doing some testing of my own and feel very confident when I say the Bluetooth reboot issue does not happen anymore. I have used Vlingo with 2 separate roms with android 2.3.3 and both worked fine. I am specifically using it now with the MikG 2.1 rom and have not had the reboot phone on bluetooth disconnect issue once.

    Good Luck All,
    Drive Safe..

    Ah! I'm very glad to find this thread and you, "Vlingo Support" user.
    BAD NEWS FOR ANDROID 2.3 USERS. As of what appears to be as recent as YESTERDAY, Vlingo pulled it's availability and services from Android 2.3, at least on HTC phones.
    I just got the Sensation 4G a week ago, and the Jawbone ERA yesterday after reading on Vlingo and Jawbone's sites that they work beautifully together. Both sites still have, as I type this, a link to download Vlingo for Adroid.

    BUT when I tried a million times to do so, I keep getting a "not supported" page. I emailed customer service at Vlingo and got a surprisingly fast, personal response:

    "Unfortunately, after much investigation, our engineers discovered a functionality issue with the software on the HTC Sensation device. Subsequently, the device has been removed from Vlingo's list of supported devices. Our engineers are currently workin gon a fix to the issue, and hope the (sic) resolve it in the very near future."
    Best regards,
    Ari

    The Big Question:

    Should I trade in my ERA today and get a plantronics that has a service that WILL allow voice to text, totally hands free? Or do you think Vlingo really IS working on it, and really WILL fix it soon?

    My guess is this ties in with the subsequent announcement that Vlingo has a new contract with Sprint to release the new Android phones, beginning with the Sensation's #1 competitor, the Galaxy S2, with Vlingo installed from factory.

    I have an Evo 4G, running Synergy Rls 1 and the latest version of Vlingo.. Honestly it seems to be running fine. I mean it is not perfect, I have to repeat some stuff once in awhile, but in general, it works well for me.
