I tried. I held in the Home button, and after the tone, I said "call Rhonda (wife). It said back to me, 'Call Rhonda'. Then it called her. No voice training. I said, 'call Kevin'. It says, 'Call Kevin home or mobile?' I say mobile. It says, 'calling Kevin mobile'. Fuggin awesome. Then I have to mow the damned grass. So I slip the 3GS into my Belkin sport armband, pop in my (non-Apple) earphones. I thought, lemme try something. I click and hold on the little clicker until I hear the tone, then I say 'load playlist Favorites.' It says, 'loading playlist Favorites.' Sweet. Then I hold in the clicker again and say, 'shuffle'. It says shuffle, and away we go! Ain't technology grand? I love this thing!

Lol. I said "F*** you", and it said "Calling Jessica Roe".

When I asked "What tune is this?" it answered, "Ballet for a Girl in Buchanan by Chicago" and it was extremely easy to understand.

Thanks, I just tried using the headphone clicker for that and it works great!

After you click, hold, and say "Play artist Whatever", you can just click twice to advance through the rest of their songs. 100% headphone controlled.

Me: Play songs by The Killers
3GS: Calling Lakota(my friend)

Great now my friend's a killer.

On a good note, I forgot which review said voice control was off, but it has been almost flawless since I first got my 3GS.

I only tried 3 different commands all involving the ipod and all worked first try in a noise ATT building lol. I didn't talk in a loud voice either because I always feel like a R-tard yelling at some electronic device.

For the same reason, I'll be keeping voice control limited to alone time ;)
