    With the improved (almost instant according to the demo in October) Voice to text ( type) feature... does it require signal or is it accomplished within the phone itself? I love this feature on my DX.. but only works when I have good service and unfortunately... I live in the sticks!

    You need a data connection to use the voice-to-text functionality. I just tried it after putting the phone in airplane mode and got a connection failure message.

    Its not exactly instant over Wifi, and a lot slower over 3g.

    Even over wifi it seems it sends data in bursts so you get a bunch of words show up, then nothing, then the next 3 or 4 etc. Over 3g its the same effect but slower.

    Just tried it now!
