    I did a search and read some users speculating on how it works, but haven't seen any responses on people actually using voice command with the 600.

    Sure wish we had something like the PPC Camp has .....

    I have been using it for several weeks now. It's great! It even reads your e-mails to you aloud! Now I'm trying to figure out how to forward my Hotmail e-mails to my Sprintpcs e-mail accout to be able hear my Hotmail read to me while I'm driving.
    Besides calling numbers, its great with traffic rerorts, directions, etc.

    What are you using? Sprint's voice command on a Treo 600? And it reads emails aloud????????
  6. #6  
    Absolutely. Sprint PCS Voice Command. Loaded all of my numbers from my Palm Desktop address book via a conversion file.

    It reads aloud all e-mail on your SprintPCS e-mail. I just can't figure out how to forward my Hotmail!

    To get e-mail, puch Voice Command and say - "My E-Mail", and it asks you for your password!!

    Server ... it may be possible. Go to Google and search for Hotmail Popper. I read about it and it might do the trick as it goes and fetches mail from Hotmail to your POP account.

    I haven't had a chance to try yet.

    Been trying to get Popper to work for over an hour.
    No luck.
    Any other suggestions on how to forward Hotmail?

    I've used Sprint's Voice command and find it an excellent service. At first I didn't think it would be worth the extra $5/month and I planned to cancel the service initially once my 3 month grace period ended. But I've gotten so used to it that I've decided to keep it. In addition to reading your email via acct, it also calls from your voice command (VC) address book and also can dial via individual numbers commands. Furthermore, if you have a shared plan, you only pay once for all the phones on your plan so that every phone get VC. Finally, as I mentioned in another thread I've assigned the number #5 key on the thumbboard to dial "*". This is convenient b/c the 5 key has the little point on it which makes it easy to feel. Thus when I need to make a call while driving, I just hit the nav pad, and then press the 5 key all w/o looking and it automatically dials my voice command from which I can use to easily make calls! Anway, that my .02 cents...

    Since voice command reads email aloud is there a way to get it to read Business Connection mail to? That would be great if it read my work mail.

    Does voice command take away minutes before a call is made or if you are checking email?

    Log into the VC website and choose Personalization on the lower left hand side of the screen. A new window will open. Choose My Email which will then allow you to enter POP3 addresses for checking as well as activating the Business Connection linkage between BC and VC.

    I go to the website to see about setting this up and get an error screen saying it's not available. Do you have to call *2 to set it up?
