    Since I don't have google contacts I can't get voice dialing to work.. Does anyone know if Voice Dialing works with Froyo? I think its kind of crazy that my Motorola Razor had voice dialing stock and this does not.

    Hold down the search key and talk to your phone when prompted. "Call blah blah blah" or "Navigate to blah blah".

    It doesn't work. My understanding is unless you have imported your contacts from google this does not work. The "navigate to blah blah" works, just not the "call blah blah".

    That's sucks. I'm not surprised; with Froyo, you can command it to play music but it doesn't even search your library - it opens up pandora. BS.

    What if you don't have Pandora installed?

    Haha! That's perfect. Maybe it will when the official release comes out.

    The Vlingo voice dailer picks up contacts that aren't in google.

    Vlingo InCar allows phone contact search, disambiguation, dialing, anounces incoming caller.. Sending texts, and reading out received texts..

    I just started using it and though not perfect in transcription it seems great overall..

    I'm on 2.1,
    Does the "navigate to blah blah blah" only work on Froyo?

    I'm pretty sure I used it when I had 2.1 installed. Give it a try :)
