    Is it possible to dial phone numbers using voice activation? I thought I could do it with the voice command icon but I can't seem to figure it out if indeed it is possible. I have done a search but I can't find anything to help me set up voice dialing.... that is if its possible. Thanks

    You should be able to. I mapped the voice app to my side button, and when you activate it you will hear a little beep. You have to speak very clearly, and use terms it knows (there ia a list out there somewhere). Saying something like "DIAL 5555555" should work.

    There is no voice dialing over BlueTooth though (in case you haven't run across that yet.).

    Are there instructions anywhere that outline exactly how to do this? I did find the list of terms but I don't know how to set it up. As for the blue tooth issue you mean that if I have it one I can't use the voice command over the blue tooth headset? If its true it seem kind of stupid not to have that. New Jersey starts a law tomorrow (March 1st.) about hands free and they appear ready to crack down on people holding their phones when driving.

    I took this from the WX user guide (I will put the link here in case you don't have it):

    Setting up voice commands
    Voice commands enable you to use speech to execute some commands
    on the Start menu and the Programs menu.
    1. Assign the Hold Side button to Voice
    Command. See “Reassigning
    buttons” on page 185 for details.
    2. Press Start and select Settings.
    3. On the Personal tab, select Voice
    Command.
    4. Select Enable.
    5. Select the items you want to enable. If
    an item is highlighted and the Options
    box is active, select the Options box
    to choose the features you want
    enabled for the highlighted item.

    Using voice commands
    1. Hold your device about nine inches away from your mouth, and
    then press and release the Voice Command button. A tone plays
    and a microphone icon appears at the top of your screen.
    2. In a clear voice say the command. For example:
    • To access Help, say,“Help.” After Voice Command finishes
    speaking, a microphone icon appears at the top of your screen.
    Say your answer. For example, say, “General” to access general
    Help topics.
    • To access your Calendar, say, “Start Calendar.”
    • To access your music, say, “Start Windows Media.” After Voice
    Command finishes speaking, a microphone icon appears at the
    top of your screen. Say your answer.

    As far as the Blue Tooth issue, no...you can't use Voice Command over Blue Tooth, but as long as your on the BT while talking, you will be OK. If you assign Voice Command to a button, all you need to hold the WX for is to hit the button and say what you need. I keep mine in an on dash holder, and either use that (speaking REAL loud and clear (LOL)) or using picture speed dial. Minimal holding of the device, and in the full spirit of the 'hands-free' law.

    I know it is a bother, but it is a hardware issue and can't be adressed.

    No problem, I will do what I can!! I know how tough those Jersey cops get (especially those S. Jersey ones....an out-of-state plate is like a payday sign for them!!!!!).

    Assuming you know how to turn on voice command and edit the options here is the cheat sheet:
    Voice Command Cheat Sheet:
    ===== CALLING A CONTACT =====
    Commands:
    Call <contact>
    Call <contact> at home
    Call <contact> at work
    Call <contact> on mobile
    Call <contact> on cell
    Call <contact> on cellular
    Call <contact> at home two
    Call <contact> at work two
    Call <contact> at car
    Call <contact> on radio
    Call <contact> on pager
    Call <contact> at assistant

    What time is it
    What date is it
    What is my signal strength
    What is my battery level
    What calls have I missed

    To confirm that you want to make the call after Voice Command responds:
    You can say "Yes" or "Correct" to call.
    You can say "No" or "Incorrect" to try again.

    If Voice Command asks you which location, you can:
    Repeat one of the locations that Voice Command offers to call.
    Say "No" to try again.

    Related commands:
    You can say "Call back" to call back the last call that you received.
    You can say "Redial" to call back the last call that you made.

    Examples:
    Call Karen Archer on cell
    Call Frank Miller
    Call City Light and Power
    Call Karen Archer Home

    Notes:
    Voice Command indexes by the Contact's first and last name if it exists. If you have a nickname entered, you can use that too. Voice Command will only let you call by company name if there is no first or last name. You must prefix contact calling with the "call" keyword. If you use "dial", it won't work!

    ===== DIALING A NUMBER ======
    Commands:
    Dial <7-digit number>
    Dial <10-digit number>
    Dial <1+10-digits>
    Dial <N-1-1>

    Examples:
    Dial 555-0200
    Dial 800-555-1212
    Dial 1-800-555-1212
    Dial 411
    You must prefix digit dialing with the "dial" keyword. If you use "call", it won't work!

    ===== CHECKING CALENDAR =====
    Commands:
    What are my appointments today?
    What are my appointments tomorrow?
    What's my next appointment?

    ===== START MENU =====
    Commands:
    Start <program>
    Example:
    Start Solitare
    Start Messaging
    Start Internet Explorer
    Start Pictures and Video

    Notes:
    Voice Command will index any file that is in or inside of \windows\program files
    You have to say the file name exactly as it is written. It may be helpful to rename shortcuts.
    Also, you can put links to web pages here and go straight to a saved web page this way.

    ===== MEDIA =====
    Commands:
    Play music
    Play media
    Play artist
    Play album
    Play genre

    Play <artist name>
    Play <album name>
    Play <genre name>
    Play <everything>

    Play
    Pause
    Stop
    Next
    Previous (track)
    Shuffle on
    Shuffle off
    What song is this?
    What track is this?

    Examples:
    Play The Beatles
    Play The White Album
    Play Rock
    Play Everything

    Notes:
    You cannot play individual tracks using voice
    Voice Command will index the media based on the metadata. You can use a metadata editor to groom the fields.
    Palm Pilot>Palm III>Palm Color>Palm m505>Palm T5>Treo700w>vzw Treo700wx>Maybe the next gen iPhone next.

    Thanks for all the help! Its working great and the cheat sheet came in handy. What a cool feature. I thought setting it up would be much harder. Now I only have to make it pronounce my last name correctly
