I cant get Voice Dial to work with my contact list.
Its complaining on there being over 3000 phone numbers in the list. I actually have over 6800 contacts and around 15000 phone numbers. The phone I just upgraded from (Hitachi G-1000, they dont make it anymore) didnt have a problem managing all the names and numbers. Is there another product I should be looking at that will accomplish what I need or must I reduce the number of phone numbers below 3000?

Touchscreen phones simplify the wireless world, especially when combined with voice activation. Although making calls using voice commands was an option before touchscreens became available, the method used to set up this feature is different than it is for non-touchscreen units. It can take time to master the set of procedures that will get the feature working.
Create a voice tag. Touch "Contacts" on the today screen. This opens the list of contacts on your phone. From here, do one of three things: you can hold your finger on the desired contact and then tap the "Add Voice Tag," you can select the desired contact, tap on "Menu" and then "Add Voice Tag," or you can tap the desired contact to open their personal screen and then hit "Menu" followed by "Add Voice Tag."
Record the voice tag on your phone. Touch the phone number to which you wish to add a voice tag then touch the "Record" button. Record your voice tag for that contact. An icon will be displayed to the right of the number when the voice tag is complete. You can listen to your voice tag by touching the "Play" button on the screen or you can delete it to record a new one.
Make a voice tag for a program. Tap the "Start" button on the phone. Go to "Settings" and then the "Personal" tab followed by "Voice Speed Dial." Choose the program for the voice tag and record the voice tag in the same manner as you did for the contact. To open the program with the voice tag, tap "Start," "Programs" and then "Voice Speed Dial."
Launch a program or make a call. Make a call by tapping "Start" followed by "Programs" and then "Voice Speed Dial." You will hear a beep. Say the voice tag you recorded for the person you wish to call. You can open a program via the same procedure (by speaking the voice tag created for the program).
Check the voice tags you created. Tap on "Start," "Settings," "Personal" tab and then "Voice Speed Dial." A voice tag tab appears and displays a list of your voice tags.
Voicemail is through the provider... if you go to your menu then messages you should see voicemail. pick that option then hit send follow the instruction giving to you from there. If you cant find it under messages dial your own phone number and hit send will get to voicemal as well. Some providers actually will have voicemail listed under contacts as well.
if you already have contacts in your phone book and you have follow the set up info given...its just like retrieving your voice mail you normally would press the number "1" key...lets give it a test run press the number 5 key down for a second or two and release...it should be dialing whoever is in the the #5 spot...you just place your first speed dial....try it again lets call that number 9 ...note you can always change the positions (callers) in your speed dial..just simply go to the phone book to who you want to replace (eg.you want replace Debbie #4, go to Sam... options/speed dial/ #4 this will over ride who is in that position)
Are you saying "name dial" first? Name dial works only with the contacts in the PHONE contact list/ address book, otherwise you have to say "digit dial" and repeat the number.Also make sure you have gone to settings>personalize>voice dial set up, first.
You should be able to add a voice tag while editing the contact. You may also be able to simply activate voice dialing and press the voice dial button and say the name of the person and it will automatically dial for you. Try doing that.
How do I set speed dial for one of my contacts?
First, find the contact in your Contact List, highlight it, and press OK. Then select Options -> Speed Dialing and press OK.
Choose one of the numbers from the list and select Assign
to assign it to your contact. You can now use 1-Touch Dialing for that
phone number. Just press and hold that assigned one or two digit number
instead of dialing the contact's entire phone number.
