This is one of the most requested features for the BB.

If you have a PTT BB on Nextel, you may be in luck! Check out the thread below:

The Rumor has become Fact

If not, you have to wait like the rest of us!

If you have Cingular you can use the "Voice Connect" feature.

It's free for the first 30 days and then $5 per month.

Last time I had it they didn't give you M2M so if this is important to you, be sure to check for it specifically. Otherwise it worked very well on my 7290 with and without a headset.

On a whim, I checked the Verizon website. Supposedly, they had the same product and were calling it Voice Gear. So I called 611 and asked to sign up. The lady tried so hard to help going in circles, but eventually came to the conclusion: 95% of the phones we sell have this feature on board, so we have stopped signing up new Voice Gear customers.

But what about us Blackberry users, who are probably REALLY profitable customers for Verizon... Grrrrr...

For some reason it is excluded.
http://www.cingular.com/customer_service/voicedial click on Terms and Conditions link.

"Calls placed using VoiceDial will not qualify for rating as a Mobile-to-Mobile call.".

Oh so if you use Voice Connect to make a call to another Cingular subscriber it doesn't count as mobile to mobile.

That doesn't seem fair. :(
