Droid 3 voice dialing issues with bluetooth

I just received my Motorola Droid 3 on Monday.  I'm having issues using voice dialing with my Samsung WEP590 bluetooth headset.  No trouble activating the voice dialing on the phone but it never dials the correct name.  I did the voice training on the phone but it didn't help.  Yes, English is my native language.   Saying "call home" made the phone ask if I wanted to "email" someone.  Very frustrating since I travel for my job and voice dialing over bluetooth is essential. 
I tried to do voice dialing without bluetooth and had the same issue.  Is anyone else having this issue?  Is there a third party app I can use?
thanks for any help.

Good Afternoon, dtownfb!
I researched bluetooth information about the device and the headset. I found no related concerns from other users. It would appear to be a hardware related issue on either the phone or headset. Have you been able to use another bluetooth with the device successfully? Have you tried the bluetooth paired with another phone and used the voice dialing feature successfully? We can eliminate the issue by asking these two questions. The problem lies in where we can duplicate the problem. 
Please advise your findings. If it is deemed an issue with your Droid 3, please feel free to PM me so I can assist further with options to correct the issue.
Thank you and have a great day!

    You can turn on BT tethering but it disables Wifi so if I have to do that step every time I get in my car, I just as well manually connect on BT every time.

  • 10.4.8 Issues with bluetooth headset

    I have always used a Logitech Bluetooth Headset with the SIP client XMeeting under OS X 10.4.5 without any issues. AfterI updated to 10.4.8, the headset only works when I switched on PRIOR to booting the Mac.
    If I switch it on after booting the Mac, its LED blinks blue with a strange sequence (two short blinks every 2 seconds or so - a headset state that the user's guide does not even mention).
    But even if I switch it on prior to booting the Mac, it will not really connect (i.e. get out of standby mode) when I start XMeeting, instead it will connect with a delay only when I start a call with XMeeting.
    Does anyone else face issues with bluetooth headsets? Or has someone found a fix for that?

    Issue resolved with patches to 10.4.8 and follow-on versions.

  • Voice Dialing problems with Galaxy S3

    One of the critical safety features of any phone is the ability to place a call by voice command while driving.
    The Samsung Galaxy S III has two major failings in supporting this basic need.  Problems with S Voice and problems placing calls from a locked phone using a bluetooth headset.
    S Voice supports voice dialing, although rather poorly.  S Voice is slow to process what I've said (unlike voice typing in every other app) and frequently fails due to "network error".
    But worst of all, if I set S Voice to never auto-dial (because I want to confirm that it hasn't misrecognized who I am trying to call), rather than reading me the name it matched and asking me if I want to dial, it only displays the match on-screen, which is useless when driving.
    Even if I am willing to trust S Voice to auto-dial, there is still a fatal flaw in voice dialing that I haven't found a way around.
    In the phone app, under call settings, Accessory settings for call, Outgoing call conditions, you are able to set whether, when using a bluetooth headset, you are able to use the headset's call button to place a call when the phone is locked.
    The problem is the phone's definition of "locked".
    If the phone's security is set to only need to swipe the screen to unlock, this feature works as you would expect.  However, anyone who is concerned about security of their data would never consider this setting as locked.
    If you have your phone's security set to require anything other than a swipe, be it face recognition, PIN, pattern or password, you are unable to place a call using your bluetooth headset's call button.
    In other words, there is no safe way to place a call while driving unless you leave your phone with no security.
    Ignoring for the moment the significant shortcomings of S Voice for dialing, as delivered to the customer you can not safely use your Galaxy S3 to place a call while driving.
    Has anyone found a way to place a call when the screen is locked with a PIN?
    Better yet, has anyone found a voice dialing app that works on the Samsung Galaxy S3 as a replacement for S Voice?
    Any suggestions on how to get the Galaxy S III to match the capabilities of every other phone I've ever owned will be greatly appreciated.

    THANK GOODNESS, someone to feel my pain! LOL On some other forums, I have been attacked for complaining about S-Voice. All of you just described what I am going through. And like Adamant, I am probably going to take the phone back tomorrow. And, also, like Adamant, I don't want to! Dang it! I just want to use my phone HANDS FREE! I have contacted Verizon, Samsung and Jawbone and am more confused than before. Samsung said my phone was too smart for my bluetooth! And that there was nothing they could do about my phone not recognizing my sister's name. This is my favorite example: I say 'Call Rite Aid Pharmacy'  simple enough.  Phone says 'I can do an internet search for 'Call Rite Aid Pharmacy' !!!!!!!! About enough to make me want an iPhone! not really. But I am going to trade 'down' for a Razr Maxx, I think?
    I had no problems with my MOTO Razr! oh yeah, one more thing...S VOICE <Comment deleted per the Verizon Wireless Terms of Service.> ...I could go on; but won't

  • Issues with Bluetooth/Wireless Mighty Mouse since Snow Leopard Install

    I am having issues with my bluetooth wireless mighty mouse. It was fine after initially having installed Snow Leopard. However, in the past week it has become progressively more and more unresponsive. It functions perfectly normal for the first while after startup, then after a short period of time it becomes slow to respond to the mouse movements that move the cursor. Eventually it gets to the point that moving the mouse results in no cursor movement whatsoever. It also becomes unresponsive to squeezing the side buttons. There are no issues with clicking or scrolling with the track ball.
    I have searched the discussion forums to find issues that pertain to "bluetooth" and "wireless mighty mouse" and have tried the following suggested remedies... Repairing my Mouse with my Mac mini. Renaming my mouse. Deleting the com.apple.Bluetooth.plist file from Macintosh HD\Library\Preferences and restarting my Mac. Reset PRAM and NVRAM. Also tried to install Bluetooth Firmware update 2.0.1 but I get an indication that the update is not needed on my Mac mini. I have also checked for software updates but there are none...
    I am going to attempt resetting the SMC but am doubtful that this will help...
    Can anyone help... Please... ?

    I had read in another forum where someone had an understanding that the bluetooth problem had something to do with Airport/Time Capsule. I had also read about how someone was having an issue with being unable to turn off airport. (I had this same problem.)
    Upon deleting a few airport related plist files (see below url) I was able to turn off/on airport AND my Mouse issue has no longer appeared... everything is working a-ok now.

  • Htc incredible 2 voice dial issues

    I have the htc incredible 2 and I enjoy listening to music on it, however, I use head phones, so everyonce in a while it would switch over to a handset device and activate my voice dial and call the last number that is on my call list.. why? How can I stop this??

    i just called  (on my landline)  800  922 0204  and the guy said there was not a problem in the area, I told him there most certainly was because I drove around for 5 miles and all as I had was a little 0 instead of the 3G and just 3 little bars...
    I can't say that I was real confident in the guy and I think the problem is going to return because it is a connection issue out in the cyber world I 'think' , but anyway, he had me turn off wifi and turn it back on and it worked. I did the same thing before calling so I have no idea why it worked while he was on the phone. Before I called, I reset the entire phone, turned it off and on, did the wifi off/on that he did and then I decided it had to be an outage.  so if you have a landline you can call that number above on you may be able to get more of an answer that is not a random solution, because I think my solution is random and it will go down again.  there seems to be several links that are referring to outages tonight. He said there is outages in VA but not here, WRONG, i told him.
    good luck

  • TS1569 iphone ios5.1 still having issues with Bluetooth

    Iphone Ios5.1 still having issues on Bluetooth connectivity.

    I lost The Bluetooth function completely two weeks ago. iPHONE IOS 5.1 .
    This is not a pairing issue, or wrong usage. Suddenly it didn't work in my car any longer. Resetting didn't help. I have tested against two other iPhones, my PC, my headset and my iPAD. (all this units have had BT connections with my iPHONE earlier)
    My iPhone Bluerooth is simply not working anylonger, not detectable and cannot "see" or find any other BT devices.
    Is this a software bug? Or simply a hardware error requiring physical repair?
    Cheers Rolf

  • Will we ever, ever  be able to voice dial through a bluetooth?

    I thought for sure that as advanced as this iphone is I would be able to voice dial.
    I didn't find out that I couldn't until I tried to using my Jawbone (which works splendidly I might add.)
    If Apple or someone who knows what's up with this doesn't tell me there's an upgrade in the works within the next couple of days, I will be returning it, and I will fight the restock fee.

    Unfortunately no one here can tell you for sure if that feature will come, or when will it come, as we are users just like you and Apple has not announced anything

  • Voice mail issue with CUCM or CUCME

    I want to know a basic information regarding voice mail configuration in CUCM or CUCME.
    With the very basic configuration of CUCM or CUCME without any unity or unity connection, is it possible to have basic voice mail features with the system. Say, I have configured call manager server with voice gateway connected to PSTN. Now is it possible to have voice mail for the system without cisco unity or unity connection configured.
    Same goes for CUCME. We have CME bundled router configured. Can we configure voice mail with unity express without having separate license?
    Please help ,e to get the answer for this query.

    Hi Amer,
    Thanks for your help. Is this same for both CUCM & CUCME?
    For welcome greetings, I have configured its-CISCO. in the VG. Can you please guide me about basicAA.tcl script, i want to give it a shot.

  • Having a connectivity issue with bluetooth in car only when using siri

    Does anyone know of a fix for connectivity issues when using siri to dial a number when using bluetooth in a car? If the number is inputted manually then the call goes through. When asking siri to make the call, it starts to go through but then quickly disconnects. I noticed the problem soon after downloading IOS 8.

    Apple has no fix for this.  I have been in contact with Apple customer service, engineering, etc. for over 2 months now.  Very disappointing, as it worked fine prior to iOS 8.0.

  • Droid 2 Global Dialer Issues

    I just recently recieved my Droid 2 Global... at first things were working fine. Then my dialer stopped working.
    When you touch the button to open it, a blank screen will pop up, and then it will go back to the home screen.
    How can I fix this?!

    Sorry you are having problems with accessing the dialer on your phone!  I would be happy to assist!
    This happens, usually, when there are too many applications running in the background.  This would cause the applications to use up the devices RAM memory, resulting in pre-installed apps like the phone dialer not to work at times.  I would first try "stopping any running applications" in the Applications Settings menu.  Then I would "reset applications" that may be conflicting with the dialer.  I would reset the "Dialer" application as well.  As a last resort, you can perform a "Hard Reset" of your device to clean the device's onboard memory.  This will not erase any data that is stored on your SD Memory Card, however, you want to ensure your data is backed up prior to performing the reset.  Make sure you know your Google/Gmail login credentials, and if you use Backup Assistant, your Backup Assistant PIN.
    Please post your results here to ensure other users experiencing the same issue can find a resolution.

  • 7925 Phones voice quality issues with wlc 5508 version 7.6

    Hi all,
    I have a mix environment with 1 WLC 5508  and more or less 6 sites with several Access Points ( all AIR-LAP1242AG and all in FlexConnect mode  Hreap ) and several wireless phones (all  CP7925G) . My Ap's have antennas 2.4GHz in all sites except 1 site ( the one i'm talking for now) with 2.4GHz and 5GHz , because of the problems we suggest to have all phone in A BAND (5Ghz) . In this site we force the phones just to A (802.11a only) , power safe NONE , Continuous scan mode , i fallow all in http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cuipph/7925g/7_0/english/deployment/guide/7925dply.pdf , one thing i didn’t do it was apply QoS because I can’t apply several ios commands in that 2960 with lan lite ios.
    So I have 3 SSID for data and 2 for VOICE  ( one is common to all environment and supports 2.4 and 5Ghz , and other just to test one site , with only 5Ghz  with “[WPA2][Auth(802.1X + CCKM)][Auth(FT 802.1X)]”, because I read that problem can be phone rooming , and in FlexConnect only have fast-roaming in a CCKM or a PKM  key-management solution , but even like this the problem still exist) .
    I have another sites with phones in 2.4GHz running well and others with problems.
    i read here in forums lots and lots of people with similar problems , i tried several solutions ( WLC  upgrades versions  and phones firmware's , ….  ) tried all my best of solving the problems mas now I’m running without any ideas , i did also some site surveys and detect some interferers that why I change phones to 5Ghz , and I run also WLC Config analyser to help me , but all without good success. Some changes solve temporarily problems , but after some time , people reclaim about problems.
    I can open a TAC case but first I want be sure if did all already.
    Can someone try to help me?

    Hi Serge,
    Thanks for the suggestions. I have taken care of all the settings. Problem is , the user is seated in his office cabin and using the 7925 and there is around 50db signal strength in his room from an AP which is just outside the cabin. And this doesnt occur often, when we go to check and make calls, everything is fine whereas the user says it happens sometimes in the morning, evening etc... randomly... where the fone goes blank while in a call.... since the problem never happens when we go to troubleshoot the issue, we really dont know what is going on. This is happening when calling PSTN.
    AP's are not restarting and there is no logs indicating that. Wireless infrastructure looks very much OK cos there are other users who are not experiencing this problem and there is ample coverage all over the floor. I am baffled why only one user has this problem even when he is seated in his office cabin.
    Tried changing phones also, but still remains.
    Question  : i tried to do a linktest from WLC to his phone, but it failed, while linktest to laptops are working fine. Does wlc linktest not working for wireless phones ?

  • Issues with Bluetooth Firmware Update 2.0?

    I just installed the Bluetooth Firmware Update 2.0 as suggested by Software Update, Mac mini early 2009. On restart and login, the Bluetooth Firmware Update started immediately, and I have a beach ball / pinwheel cursor. No other program activity. Only menu bar items are Apple menu, Bluetooth Firmware Update, File, Edit, Window, and Spotlight.
    Machine has been in this state for about 10 minutes (I wrote this on my /other/ Mac).
    The Bluetooth keyboard (Apple wireless) /was/ used to login.
    Anyone else having issues?

    did install .... did restart .... now screen is gray for almost 1 hour .... really upsetting my small window for patience with the great apple gang ... have to race around to find computer to search for why and find nothing so i'll do force restart and see if that helps ....
    the bluetooth update said it could take some time and to have power plugged in but they could have told how long and built in an exit ramp in case of this kinda "you're outta bizniz fellow" mess
    any help out there ? thanks

  • Am I the only one (still...) having issues with Bluetooth after upgrading to iOS 8.1...?

    Hi fellas,
    I guess my expectation level was way too high regarding this upgrade from iOS 8.0.2 to 8.1: my iPhone 6 still can't connect to Bluetooth peripherals, whatever they may be...
    I have a MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard, and a PC with Windows 8.1 update on it, and none of them can pair with the iPhone, no matter how hard I try.
    Have you guys found workaround measures or (hopefully) solutions?
    I swore today was my last day going to work with the crappy Apple-issue headphones that came with the phone, and I'd pack my faithful Sony Ericsson BT to work tomorrow...

    Your english is very good! For Handoff/Continuity to work you need Bluetooth turned on on both devices and they need to be in range of each other -- but you do NOT go to the Bluetooth setting on either device and pair them. I know that is unusual and can think of no other case where that is done using Bluetooth, but that is how it works for Handoff & Continuity.
    The following are the other things needed from Connect your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac using Continuity
    How to get started:
    Sign in to the same iCloud account on all your devices.
    Turn on Bluetooth on all the devices you want to use. Make sure your devices are near each other.
    Connect all your devices to the same Wi-Fi network.
    Turn off Handoff
    To turn off Handoff on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, go to Settings > General > Handoff & Suggested Apps, and turn off the setting.
    On your Mac, go to System Preferences > General and deselect the option to allow Handoff.
    Phone calls
    With Continuity, you can make and receive cellular phone calls from your iPad, iPod touch, or Mac when your iPhone is on the same Wi-Fi network.
    To make and receive phone calls, here's what you need:
    Sign in to the same iCloud account on all your devices, including your Mac.
    Your iPhone and your iPad or iPod touch need to use iOS 8 or later. Your Mac needs to use OS X Yosemite.
    All devices must be on the same Wi-Fi network.
    All devices must be signed in to FaceTime using the same iCloud account. This means any device that shares your Apple ID will get your phone calls. Look below for instructions on how to turn off iPhone cellular calls.
    Wi-Fi Calling needs to be off. Go to Settings > Phone. If you see Wi-Fi Calling, turn it off.
