    so my friend has the droid2 and can literally speak in full text messages and have it understand accurately what he is saying. I try it on mine and i'm lucky if it understand 30% of the time. I watched him speak to his and then to mine and his was perfect and the epic sucks. is this something that is better in 2.2 like he has or another flaw in the epic?

    maybe I should try it on my wifes. maybe you just don't notice it. my friend can talk full conversations into his droid2, he did the same thing with the epic and got network error. we text all day and he does voicetext the whole time. I couldn't do that to save my life on this thing. considering mine doesn't seem to have the gps flaw, I'd doubt it was my phone.

    Same issues, although I say it gets it right maybe 40 to 50% of the time. Still sucks though. I bet 2.2 will improve this function.

    possibly I guess, thats what I'm trying to figure out, whether its hardware related or software related.

    My Epic won't text with Voice Search at all! It hears me perfectly but puts what I've said in a Google search window. Any hints? I tried to download a new version from Market but when I search for it.....I can't find it. Even the link from Google takes me to Market and then to unrelated apps.

    Any advice would be appreciated. My hubby has an LG Optimus that texts from his voice using this app and I'm COVETING his phone.

    Thanks!

    You aren't supposed to text with voice search. You search google with voice search. If you want to voice text, open the on screen keyboard when in a text thread and click the microphone button on the lower left, then speak.

    I'd say I have about a 90% success rate using voice to text, after doing a hard reset. Apparently something was screwed up.

    fiendslyr: THANK YOU!!!!!!! I use the slide out keyboard which doesn't have the microphone. I never noticed it the few times I used the screen keyboard.

    You made my day!
