Default 8100 Pearl Voice Dial Fix

I searched far too long before I found this so I thought I would give it an accurate title to make it easier to search.

Just a quick solution to your problem-- you can force VR to re-read all your contacts by doing the following:

1. Go to Menu -> Options -> Language
2. Change languages to UK English
3. Save
4. Go to Localisation (which is UK English for Language)
5. Switch back to US English
6. Save

The next time you press the VR button, all contacts will be re-read and they will all be voice activated...

That brings up an interesting question. Does the voice dialing software alter its interpretation of voice according to localization?

If I set it to UK English will it better understand if I say my contacts' names in fake English accent?
