Speaker dependent vs. speaker independent voice dialing

Can anybody speak (no pun intended) to trends in the cell phone industry re speaker dependent vs. speaker independent voice dialing? I'm interested in 1) anyone's experience with the quality/functionality of either or both technologies and 2) which direction the industry is headed.

What prompts this query is this: I have been using my trusty LG VX7000 for something going on five years. This phone is bullet proof and has as much technology as I need and WANT except for email access. I LOVE the speaker dependent voice dialing feature. I have some 20 tagged numbers wherein I previously recorded a single name. The phone operates thus: push a single hot button on the side, a pleasant female voice asks "name please", I say "John", the v...

Sprint 4G handsets

Maybe I am behind the times, but has Sprint released any non-aircard 4G devices yet, or at least plan to? I understand that their 4G is still limited to very few markets (17 more by the end of the year, hopefully), but it would be very nice to utilize the full power of spectacular 4G speeds on, say, a BlackBerry.

cdma txt question

So I have a BB Tour on big red, and I have noticed that if I send a message at the same time a message is coming in, the out going message fails. Is this a BB issue or a CDMA issue? I have never noticed the issue on any phone I have owned before I went to BB.

Gartner forecasts phones overtaking PCs as most common web browsing device by 2013

The End of Apple Dominance of Smart Phones is at Hand

The iPhone 3GS is a brilliant device, almost magical in its ability to render graphics, toy with audio and jump from app to amazing app with such poise and grace that all other smart-phone developers must "kiss the ring" before exposing their next attempt at a serious contender. What those of us old enough to remember have learned from the past is that a single hardware manufacturer, with complete control over the creation and distribution of their product, no matter how brilliant cannot hope to maintain dominance over everyone else indefinitely. In this particular case, perhaps Apple's considerable advantage in development, support and a large user base would have overcome past models of innovative hardware releases, but they made a fatal e...

I just purchased a LG Shine II from ATT. I wanted to import my phonebook to my car (I own a Honda Accord). I was advised that the phone would have to have a PBA (Phonebook Access) profile which it does. Nevertheless, I still cannot import the phone book. Honda tells me that ATT has to provide software to accomodate this feature. When I call ATT they are useless. Anyone have any thoughts? Thank you.

Driver Software Lg UX 265 compatible with Windows Home Premium

I did not get or maybe in storage somewhere, a cd with driver software for bluetooth.

I can get the phone to pair with my laptop - I can not get data transfer.

Windows says I need the driver cd. I contacted LG to see if they had a download available and they tried to sell me their $20.00 usb cable since the connection on their phone does not fit the standard usb cable for cell phones and mp3players - the one I have that fits my mp3players.

How do I get the software to download?
