Default Voice Activated Dialing w/ BT on 8700c

Would there be any way to get this? Right now that is the only reason I can think of to upgrade to the 8800. I just don't know if I want to pay $400.00 for that option. I didn't know if downloading a new OS (4.2) could give me that option, or is the 8800 the only way to get it?

NO 4.2.1 does not give this functionality for the 8700. I tried loading the cod files from the 8800 packages, and was able to get the icon on the home screen, but it didn't run.

I think you're out of luck.

Can't get it on the 8700c. Closest you can get is Cingular's voice dial service on the 8700c.

I wouldn't pay $400 for voice dial. Speed dials work best...IMHO. I don't like the voice dial.

Same here. Getting into an argument with voice dialing in public can make people think you're nuts.

LOL!

I drive about 200 miles every day, and would love to be able to make a call w/o taking my seatbelt off, unholstering the bb, unlocking it and then calling. It is quite an ordeal.
