    Hello everyone,

    I have recently purchased a Samsung Mesmerize, and I'm having issues with the Voice Search function. I am unable to use it to call contacts, or call local businesses as I can on my Motorola Droid. Let me give you some examples:

    <Press Voice Search App, wait for prompt> say Call Nancy Waters Mobile
    (This calls contact Nancy Waters at the Mobile #)

    <Press Voice Search App, wait for prompt> say Call Best Buy Janesville Wisconsin
    (This Google Searches the Number for Best Buy in Janesville, WI, and Displays it, and calls it automatically.)

    <Press Voice Search App, wait for prompt> say Call Voicemail
    (obviously, this dials voicemail)

    All of these work flawlessly on the Droid. On the Mesmerize, all of the spoken words are entered into a Google Search. It literally says, "Call Nancy Waters Mobile" in the browser w/ Google Search results.

    I've verified the Settings > Search > Searchable Items dialog, all are checked. One note: the Web checkbox that I have on the Droid is not present on the Mesmerize. Clearly Voice Search DOES search the web since no matter what I say gets correctly recognized and websearched. I'm not sure what else to do to rectify this issue. Any ideas?

    I have a Motorola Droid and I have NOT ONCE, EVER gotten the voice commands to do what it should. I always get the menu (it "understands" the command) and I have to tap to make it work. Have watched the video countless times.

    That being said, I beta tested and love Choice Dialer Pro. (There is a free version...) Developer is super nice, and app hasn't let me down. See if this helps you...
