    Just tried it and it worked for me. Could be that it doesn't like another app that is installed. What network are you on.

    Hi Thank you very much for replying.
    I am on Orange/TMobile.

    Tried restarting. How do you think I could work out which app might be causing the prob. I do have quite a few! Lol!

    Works for me too.

    I've had a brief scan of the app, and it looks as though you can do all the things the app can, without it. Hold down the magnifying glass button and say what you want it to do -

    "Text XXX I'll be back from work in 10 minutes"

    That will send a text to my GF telling her I'll be home in 10 mins etc.

    Hmmm Well I did try that and got it to recognise the word "text" but it didn't take any action.

    On mine I have to say "send message to xxx" and then the message.

    Edit: Nevermind I just tried it your way el and it did the same thing.

    OK Guys I got the magnifing glass to work: Had to split up the interactions but it did do it. Thanks.

    However I would still like to try the Vlingo app! :) If anybody can help me.

    Many thanks

    Do you have any anti virus/security software installed? I've noticed Vlingo requires a lot of permissions, the AV app could be stopping it from working?

    Works well for me, have you got the country settings and language correct. English UK does not respond to some American expressions (thank goodness). Its a nice app, the in car section needs some work and it does not like my cars built in Nokia Bluetooth system. Word of warning with the in car mode if you use the 'Hey Vlingo' option and are not connected to external power it will suck your battery dry very quickly

    Maybe I haven't explained properly. It is not that the app doesn't work.

    If I go to android market the app (and presumably others) is just not there!

    My friend and I (He has HTC Desire) logged onto Market together and he got a totally different selection of apps, inc VLINGO offered.

    If I go to Vlingo website and try to install I get the message that I am running Android 1.0

    Why is my HTC appearing to be running a different version?

    Ok - the problem you are now describing is different to the one I thought you were originally describing. I don't have an answer but, just to be clear, the issue is that the Android Market app isn't offering you the same choice of apps as your friend sees on their phone? You say you are on Orange/T-Mobile... I am on Orange in the UK and I can see the Vlingo app in the market. I take it that you and your friend are both on UK contracts and networks?

    If you search in the market for "Vlingo", what results do you get? The first answer for me is "Vlingo Virtual Assistant"... I take it that you don't get this?

    If you look at Menu -> Settings, is it set to "Show All Apps"?

    It sounds to me like your phone is somehow telling the market you have a different version of android than what you actually have. If your phone is not rooted and running a custom rom then I would guess that it is being caused by an app or a launcher that you have installed. The only way to find out would be to uninstall things one at a time.
