    I was having a problem getting VA to call anyone in my contacts. It would want to call some random business and offer to Google the person I actually wanted to call. After searching for a while I came upon the solution of clearing out the contacts data - Menu, Settings, Applications, Manage Applications (select "All"), Contacts Storage -- the select Clear Data. Then re-sync your contacts with your Google contacts. You may want to backup your contacts before you do this. I didn't lose any, but YMMV.

    Note that this also cleared up a sync issue I was having with my Google contacts.

    May the force be with you and live long and prosper.:D

    FWIW - I prefer the Edwin app for voice actions, and there are evidently other good competitors as well.

    I find Edwin is particularly effective at dealing with background noise.
