Re: text messaging

Voice dialing is for dialing phone numbers and calling people. That's why they call it it voice dialing. Wink

Text messaging is a whole different thing. What you're suggesting is full voice recognition and dictation, which no phone has (yet). That kind of thing requires more processor power than you'll find in most phones.

Anyway, this is not a good phone for text messaging, but it does have it. You choose letters using the scroll wheel, but it's not as tedious as it sounds. It uses unique predictive text software to make it semi-intelligent.

The way it works is: you choose the first letter of the word, then for the next letter, you're only presented with the letters that could come next to form a real word. Then for the third letter, same thing, and the whole time it's trying to guess the word, so if it does, you can just accept and go to the next word. In other words, it's like AutoComplete on a PC, on steroids.

So, for example, if you enter "r" as the first letter, for the second letter you'd only be presented with "a e h i o u y", instead of the whole alphabet, since those are the only letters you could use to form a real word.
