    I cannot figure this one out. My voice search will work sometimes and not others. I have uninstalled, reinstalled, done everything I could think of, and it is inconsistent.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Data issues can affect voice search since the heavy lifting is done by Google's servers. Even though you see that 3g icon, it doesn't take much data loss/slowdown to cause search to fail. I also had voice search totally fail when I had ~3500 Google contacts. I pared down to ~600 and voice search works fine. Don't know what the maximum contact number is and Google isn't telling or even admitting there's a limit.

    Thanks! I was in the woods with minimal to no 3g, which may have been my problems.

    I have had the same issue with my Commando and the 3G service is not the issue. When voice search does not work, the microphone is not registering any sound. It only works about once out of every ten times I use it. Could it be that the program is messing with the sound settings? I hope there is a real fix for this soon. I really enjoy Voice Search when it works correctly.
