Voice Commands on LG290C

I discovered how to complete a voice command with the LG phone, but is there a 'short cut' to do that? I mean, by the time I go to 'tools', then choose 'voice commands', I could be talking already with a simple speed dialer. The point is that I don't want to use a speed dialer. I want to be able to hit a button and speak a name to call someone. Is that not possible?

Seems like a good phone...really

Every carrier needs to keep some low-to-no feature phones in the line up for the people who really just want a voice phone. Actually, this LX-290 seems to be done well. From the cnet review, it sounds like it is made with quality, matte plastics (no greasy, fingerprinty material that only looks cool for the first 5 minutes), has solid physical build quality with a strong slide mechanism, and provides excellent call quality (VERY important!).

I am relatively savvy with consumer technology and am not an old person, yet these are all the features I ever look for in a phone. I have internet at home and work and just don't see the value in increasing my wireless bill 30 percent or so to have an additional internet connection on a 3 inch scree...
