If I am posting this in the wrong group of the forums, I apologize.

I am really enjoying my BlackBerry 7130e, and have no complaints. However there is one feature of my cell phone that I miss, and personnally think it would make this the perfect device.

The feature is voice dialing, it makes hands-free operation for dialing awesome, and has saved me from lots of accidents while driving and needed to make a phone call.

If anyone has any input to RIM, I think they would be money ahead if they could incorporate that feature.

I've never understood the "need" to make a phone call while driving. Why not wait until you're home, or hit the next rest stop?

Lots of studies have shown that even though you're using a headset and hands-free dialling, you're still talking on a phone and your driving will be affected.

People have existed without instantaneous communications over long distances for thousands of years and regardless of how important you think that phone call is, your life and those of everyone driving on the same roads is infinitely more important. Put down the phone and pay attention to the road.

Purephrase

Waiting till you get home or find a rest stop does work for some situations. However there are many times were those two conditions do not work. I spend a lot of time on the road, and so many times I am having to make phone calls while driving. Having to stop every time I need to make a phone call can be very time consuming
If you are able to do business that way I applaude you in being able to do so, but it does not work for all.

Coreyg510,

Thank you for correcting the location of my post, sorry for the wrong location.

While providers and citizens encourage you to stay off the phone while driving, do you think any top level execs follow that encouragement from companies say like Nextel, Sprint, Verizon, Cingular? I don't, because I am on the phone constantly. A bluetooth device and speed dial has gotten me pretty far, but voice dial would be nice too.
