Question Voice Dial for 8700C

Please Login to Remove!

Hi.....

Tried to search for this topic, but did readily find one. Sorry if this was already covered.

How is it possible that RIM has not added voice dial to the 8700? Even some of the cheapest, dedicated cell phones now have this feature. Is there some reason that RIM does not or will not add this? Is it possible to add this to the 8700C in a future RIM software upgrade? Is the HW there - just not the SW?

I know there are some 3rd party apps out there that seems to do this - for a monthly fee. Is there anythign that is free or a low one-time fee?

I do not have an 8700C yet, as I waiting for my company to offer it at our corporate rate (a few weeks I am told). I read the speakerphone is great and the Bluetooth support is good. Why not voice dial?

Thanks.

I suspect that now that they are using the new Intel chipset that voice dialing will not be too far behind. I want the voice dial software to be on the unit, not server side as it is on the software offered for the 7520 and 7100i Nextel units.

Thanks for the quick response. In another post, you asked about items to talk to RIM about on your call on Tuesday. This one is a biggie. I can not imagine not having so basic a feature. Thanks very much.
