Default Bluetooth headset and voice dial

Please Login to Remove!

I recently got my first Blackberry from T-Mobile. It's the 8320 Curve. I have paired it with a Plantronics 510 Bluetooth headset. I can initiate voice dial from the Blackberry.

However, I would like to initiate voice dial by pressing the connect button on the Bluetooth headset. Is this supposed to work?

I can't find a definite answer anywhere. Is there some setting on the phone I need to change? Or could it be just the headset? Can anyone confirm that you can do this?

Thanks,

you need to hold for a second or so the connect button. it should prompt then for asking for a command

Yeah, what he said. D'ja try reading the headset's quickstart guide?

My plantronics 655 goes like this.

Power On
Maybe quick press to pair/connect (if idle for long)
1-2 second press & hold to get low tone for VAD

Good luck.

Default I think I know what you are talking about

I have a Curve through AT&T and a Moto bluetooth. I cannot connect with my voicedial through the headset either. I took back one Curve after the AT&T rep said that he contacted blackberry and that the "know of the issue are are seeking ways to fix it." I guess we are stuck in the meantime.

i use voicedialing all the time on my bluetooth. plantronics discovery 640, bluespoon spider, motorola H500, H300, and several others i forgot the designations for, and its the same for all of them. Hold for 5+ seconds to turn on or off. Press once to connect to the phone. Press and hold for 2-3 seconds or press twice rapidly to activate VAD

That did the trick! Thank you!

I lost the manual a long time ago. The fact is I've never used voice dial from the headset because my last phone was a Treo which definitely doesn't do it. That was so disappointing and this is such a relief!

The BB is head and shoulders above the Treo! Thanks all!
