    seems like a no-brainer...

    saying that it seems like a no brainer is a very condescending attitude If you don't know what i'm talking about its ok to say you don't know. I'll take the high road on this one and try to rephrase it so the really intelligent people can understand it. My question is can you use a corded headset,call up voice dial, from voice dial call up voice command and get access to your phone numbers. If this is possible on the treo 650 would someone please explain it to me

    I already know this. Have you ever used a corded headset and gone through voice dial to accomplish what you describe above? If so please explain the procedure. Thanks for your help.

    Here is the process I'm talking about. 1.launch voice dial. 2.from voice dial call voice command. 3.successfully dial a phone number from your voice command phonebook. 4.Do all of the above while using a corded headset with the call button located on the cord. Throughout this process you will not touch the phone at all. If you are successful please explain it to me, but if you are not please refrain from saying that there is no app needed. Thanks for your help.

    20 posts and you're already offended - relax, the no-brainer term is used to describe a process not a person. I understood it originally as I have used the Sprint functionality.

    If you want to stick with sprint, and if it is the same as it was in the past, use your headset, dial the *2 or whatever it is to call voice command, issue the commnad and there ya are....

    If you use voicedial, use the headset, press the key you have assigned to launch voice dial (side button usually) voice dial asks for the command, you give it, and there ya are......

    I do not believe you can launch an app from the button on a corded headset.

    at the risk of insulting you further, does this answer the question ?

    You are quite arrogant. Most people don't use Vcommand becuase its stupid and redundant with a PDA phone. They assusme you should be able to call it like any other number. Why don't you just tell people that the problem is that voicesignal does not recognise "*" as a number and therefore will not dial it? That would save you the hassle of having to further hone your a....
    Nevermind.

    that was very intuitive sxtg..... I never realized that was the actual question....

    why would you ever issue a voice command to the device to connect you to another system so that you can issue another voice command and then get connected to a call (all for the right to pay an additional $5/mo) - seems like you better than double the potential failure modes.....

    One of you that has Sprint voice dial service try to program a contact for Sprint with the phone number being simply "*". See if you can use the contact to call up the Sprint app. If this works, one could use voicedial in the 650 by hitting the headset button to start voicedial, then saying "call sprint". This should send the "*", and start Sprint's voice app, and then you could say the name you want to call from the Sprint's voice dial service. If this works you would have a totally hands off the phone way of using Sprint's voice dialing.

    If you really want to go there.......

    I don't see why you couldn't just save "Voice Command" as a contact using *2 as the phone number,activate VoiceDail and say "Call Voice Command".....

    I must say it does seem quite redundant thought

    so.....

    you only push one button on the headset and the issue 2 different voice commands, call sprint, call Joe....

    why not just push one button on the headset and issue one voice command, call joe...

    sounds like a no-brainer to me...

    As I mentioned VoiceSignal does not recognize the "*" so when you attempt it the app says "no number available"

    I agree. a couple of comments above yours keep telling people how to do this. I was just re-stating that it will not work. Which is fine as its seems silly to me anyway.

    First of all I'm not offended. Second of all what does the number of posts have to do with it? It took you all of one sentence to answer my question
    and for that I thank you. But all that other noise, I don't get it?

    Why do you consider me arrogant? Because I didnt just accept what was typed? Even though it went nowhere as far as answering my question. I try to respond to posts if I think I can help. I make no assumptions about the author of the post. I say please and thank you. What is it that makes me so arrogant in your eyes?

    pwned.

    by the way, voice dial is good for what it does, it's the TREO650's lack of BT coolness that doesn't allow the voicedial thru BT to work, not the software ...

    Anglo/Western names are recognized most of the time but no luck with ethnic names which in my business I have to interact with daily.

    Also on Cingular I keep on getting an error that "Please wait while your contacts update”. Only way to get rid of this is to reboot.

    The response from VoiceSignal Support on April 12:
    "This sounds like a known bug. PalmOne is working on an update that should be released within a few days."

    Well 'many' few days have come and gone and as of last Friday there is still no fix. I have to say that I'm highly suspicious that the VoiceSignal support person I'm dealing with is clueless.

    Anyone else with Cingular experiencing this problem?

    My voice dialer is taking much longer to connect after it finds the correct name. The screen stays blank for 5-10 seconds. The call eventually goes through but this delay is new.

    I notice I have an increaing number of si_command and si_name files. I don't know if this has any impact.

    Has anyone else run into this?
