    Voice Dialing Goes Away

    Installation of DejaOffice appears to have eliminated my ability to use Voice Dialing on my Android phone. Tmobile had me do an entire factory reset, which I completed. At the end of that I could call my business partner by Voice Dialing, rather than using my fingers. Having reinstalled DejaOffice, however, I can no longer accomplish Voice Dialing. Anyone else having this problem?

    John,

    TMobile I know but what are your device stats again? I want to run this inhouse.

    I have had many problems getting Voice Dial to work on my HTC EVO with Android 2.2 (Froyo). I have found also that there is a significant difference between Bluetooth dialing and Voice Search in how they work. At one point I had Bluetooth Voice Dialing working fine, but when I would say "Call Betty Thomas at home" Google Voice Search would either (1) call a random funeral home, or (2) search the web for "Call Betty Thomas at home."

    I had been using CompanionLink to sync my contacts from Outlook on my PC with my phone. Worked like a charm. But since Voice Dialing didn't work, I searched the Web, and finally figured out (I think) that Voice Dialing works off of contacts you've stored in Google Contacts in the cloud. And even though the phone was set up to automatically sync my phone contacts with Google Contacts, Google Contacts only had 37 of my ~1700 contacts.

    So I exported a .csv file from Outlook and manually imported it into Google Contacts. Success! My Bluetooth Voice Dialing worked!

    But then I noticed that the automatic syncing on my phone somehow figured that most of my Google Contacts were different than the same contact synced by CompanionLink, and I ended up with maybe a thousand duplicate contacts. Blech.

    So then I deleted all my phone contacts and resynced with ComanionLink. Great! No duplicates! But then Bluetooth Voice Dialing wouldn't work. So I then deleted all the contacts, got gSyncit to sync my Outlook contacts directly with Google Contacts, and once again allowed Google Contacts and my phone contacts to sync.

    There was also that difference in there about Bluetooth Voice Dialing and Voice Search; as I remember, one needed Google Contacts on the phone and one needed them at Google Contacts but for the life of me I can't remember which.

    Maybe this will prompt someone who knows more than me to post their understanding of how this is really supposed to work!
