    Does the Treo 800w provide true Voice dialing with BT headset support? For me this is a must have.

    Thanks

    It is not supported natively or at least most users report that it doesn't work for them. There have been reports of car kits that give you this capability with the 800w however. And you can always use voice command via the handset. I know that is not what you want, but just stating the obvious.

    You can initiate it via the bluetooth headset but you can't actually say any commands over the headset, you have to say them into the phone. Depending on the BT headset you also may not hear notifications from VC.

    Thanks for the reply.

    This pretty much puts the nail in the coffin for me. I've been very disappointed with my 700p. I've been thinking of either moving to the 800w, or holding out for the 850, but I don't think that I will. The Treo just doesn't have the features that I want, and voice activated dialing with BT headset support (naively) is one of them. I've had lesser, cheaper phones that did that, and I am very disappointed that the Treo doesn't support that option.

    Thanks for the feed back. It wasn't the answer that I wanted to hear, but at least it was the answer that that I needed.

    It wasn't the answer I wanted to hear as well. I'm still hopping that Palm can one day issue an update to fix it but since it was never fixed on the 700wx my hopes are near nil.

    I am waiting for this to be resolved before upgrading from my 700wx.
