Default Voice Dialing stops working

Please Login to Remove!

Every 4-5 weeks my voice dialing stops working on the phone as well as on my blue tooth headset. After the last time I took the phone into Verizon, they couldn't figure out what the problem was and they just gave me a new phone. Now it just happened again! Anyone else have this problem? When I try, it just goes to the "activating voice dialing, please wait" and never actually works.

sounds like a software glitch. Does it do it with just the BT or both?

The voice dialing won't work with the phone only or the headset. Just stays on the initializing screen.

I'm having the same problem on my 8310. It worked for about a week, then stopped working with headseat - an original Jawbone, then stopped working on the phone. It gets stuck in the initialization phase. Pulling the battery helped the problem. Thanks for the post, Dawg!

I would go into Address Book >Options and change the "sort by." If you have it set to "last name" change it to first name (or vice versa.) Then save. Then go back and change it back and save. Now run voice dialing again. This will force it to reread the address book.
