It seems to me that the voice dial is an important function that MUST work properly on any phone now that laws are in place enforcing handsfree car use. I have a NEW 8900 and can't get it to work properly. It is distorted, the bluetooth recognition works only about 5% of the time and I USUALLY have to give up. I don't have a data plan so Vlingo is not an option (and it should not be necessary to replace a built in phone function)
I am interested in knowing if anyone else experiences this.
I believe it should be addressed as a serious problem that limits this phone as a communication device. Nice camera and screen though.
