    I bought this program from Palm and am very disappointed with its performance (or lack thereof). Voice dialing was a feature I used in my LG cellphone all the time for the last two years, and it works really well; Voice Dial seems to work the same way, but it's pretty much useless.

    It doesn't help that all my contacts got imported as Cell, Barbara instead of Barbara cell. But I can deal with that; I can't deal with saying "call home" and getting "did you say San Francisco Hilton?"

    (I wouldn't mind if it got me Paris Hilton, but I don't live in San Francisco, let alone the Hilton.)

    Nothing gives you 100% accuracy in the world of voice dialing. My Nextel, a high end phone, hits about 85% of the time and in an environment with a lot of noise, it is even lower.

    As for Paris Hilton, you can probably do better.

    My voice dial by voice signal wasn't working up to my expectations. Maybe 60% or so.
    I sat down and did about 30 or 40 lookup name and at some point the acuracy became 90 to 95 % and it continues to work great.

    When I was evaluating voice dial software, it never once mixed up who I wanted to call.
    I just didn't purchase it because you can't use it via BT.

    I tried all the available software around with my 650 and then bought VoiceSignal within 2 days of trying it. I get close to 100% accuracy. I did clean up my address book, which made things a lot easier and gave the software more of a fighting chance.

    Did you find any voice dialing solutions that work over BT? I think my Motorola HS850 might be able to handle it, but I haven't had any luck researching software, and assumed the Sprint monthly paid service wouldn't work.

    From what I understand nothing will allow voice dial via BT on the 700P due to palms implementation of BT.
    I don't know how accurate that is but it's what I've read.

    It worked fine with the regular headset.

    I read on VoiceSignal's web-site that it supports up to 3000 contacts.

    Also.. in the FAQ it says that Palm is still working on making Voicedial work with Bluetooth. I had given up hope. Maybe by 2008?

    The Palm OS does not support a Bluetooth voice implimentation. If you want to do Bluetooth then you need a Bluetooth dongle such as the A210 from Jabra. Ben

    Thanks everyone.

    And Ben, I agree entirely about Paris Hilton - she's not my fantasy either - but it wouldn't make sense to say "I wouldn't mind if it got me Shania Twain instead of San Francisco Hilton."
