I returned my i760 today
1) Terrible reception. My i760 dropped at least 10 calls per day. I got dropped calls at home, at the office and on the drive in between... is this normal for an i760?? Are others having this problem?
2) Voice recognition was completely worthless. With my E815 I could dial by name or by number flawlessly out of the box. The voice dialing on the i760 was worthless and I could not find anywhere to train it to my voice.
There were a lot of things I liked about the phone, like the numeric keypad on the outside, which I used often because the voice commands did not work...
These are the two that made the phone a N...
I haven't had any issues with dropped calls on this unit (any more than my XV-6700 before this).
I think what is happening is a programming bug. The "outbound" volume going to the headset has been effectively "muted" although I'll bet it is still functioning.
Try this: while using your bluetooth headset, watch the screen as you hold down the voice command button. You should see the microphone icon (voice command) appear at the top of the screen to the left of the time and other icons. When (if) you do, speak a...
Another question, I have about the Voice Command 1.6 is: If you listen to the demo on Microsoft's web site, it sounds totally different (and much, much better) than on the Samsung. It features a clear speaking voice and great responsiveness. Is it the same product?
I checked the Voice Command website and that is how it sounds on my Samsung.
I would recommend returning the Samsung and getting the HTC XV-6800 now that it is FINALLY available at Verizon. You may have a malfuncitoning unit.
You may just want to have them change the phone for another one.
I upgraded from my Motorola e815 on 12/1/07 to a samsung i-760 through verizon. I opted for the unlimited data plan. Now, I was using the phone via my bluetooth connection in my car and had multiple dropped calls in areas I could use my 815 reliably. I took my samsung inside my house and had only 2 or three bars with poor call quality when checking my voice mail.
While looking online, I found many users having no problems so I assumed I had a bad phone. I went to verizon but they had no more units to perform an exchange. I returned it and reactivated my 815, with perfect reception.
I am reordering a samsung i760 to see if it was just that un...

Does My SCH-i760 Support Voice Dialing?
Yes, MicrosoftÃ‚Â® Voice CommandÃ¢”žÂ¢ is advanced speech recognition software that allows users to speak commands to perform common functions supported by the SCH-i760 handset. There is no voice training required to use the voice command feature. Speak contact names or phone numbers naturally to dial, and use voice commands to launch applications and navigate phone menus. Tip: Only talk when the microphone icon is displayed.

I have an E815 Moto and the voice recognition worked so well I never had to repeat myself. This phone never gets it right, I have tried to speak closer to the mic, then farther from it, nothing works on the first time unless you have a first and last name listed.
At this point I would almost rather voice tags, even though that is antiquated technology, it's better than this! I have switched the phone out already for a new one, they all work the same way, bad VR.
