Howdy, well today I went onto AT&T's web page and logged into my account and added voice activated dialing. Not sure it is worth it. It by no means compares to the voice activated dialing by Verizon. My biggest complaint is that it DOES NOT use your current existing contacts like Verizon did. You have to log into voicedial.wireless.att.com and add the contacts that you want to use with voice activated dialing. Now there is an option to import your Outlook contacts but since I am using the Windows contacts there is no option for this. Another draw back is that you cannot use the same name twice. So if you had a home and cell number for Sally you would need to name your contact Sally Home with the home number and then add another contact Sally Cell with the cell number. At least this is the way I did it. Another issue is that you must first maunally dial *8 to use the voice activated system. I cannot get my replaced phone to pair with my Nokia bluetooth earpiece so I do not know if you used an earpiece if you would still need to first manually dial *8. The cost is $4.99 additional a month. I am at this point trying to decide if the cost is worth it.
