    When I try to use voice to text when on 3g it will give me a connection problem, so it will never work while driving. As soon as I am on wifi it will start working again. Im running stock ICS 4.0.1 and its the same issue when trying it in the stock messaging app or in whats app. Any ideas how to fix it?

    I just noticed this today on mine, and I'm running a custom rom with custom gapps.

    My 4G connection is rock solid here, but voice to text with it enabled is sluggish and jerky. Never noticed this before because normally at home I'm using WiFi, which it runs very smooth on.

    No idea how to fix it, but wanted you to know you're not alone.

    Google added offline transcription to 4.1. By the way, why are you still running 4.0.1?

    After disconnecting from wifi, try cycling mobile data off then back on. It should then work until you connect to wifi again. The Nexus does a poor job of switching back to mobile data.

    I had the same problem and this fixed it. Go to Settings->More->Usage->Voice Search. UNcheck "restrict background data". When checked it "disables background data on mobile data network only. WiFi will be used if available". Hope this helps you.
