|Works Great on my CrackBerry
|Yes I am unable to use the speed dial feature because the Blackberry uses letters not numbers for speed dial - but the command PHONE COMMAND switchs me me over to the phones voice reorganization circuit - not as good as BlueAnt but it works OK - all other voice commands are flawless - just say answer to accept a incoming call, redial to call the last number - call back to get that jerk that hung up on you - how kool is THAT! How about doing a Setup via voice command - pairing a new phone even turning off that flashing LED - way way kool.
|Great headset - just not fully compatible with 700p
|Just been on the phone with BlueAnt and they swear my phone is the problem and I don't have the latest software (they're wrong - checked with Palm and Verizon on my 700p). Nothing like denial.
You cannot, as far as I can tell, set the 700p to Speed Dial by number. You can assign the corresponding QWERTY letter (R=2, T=3), but the V1 doesn't recognize/interface this with the Palm. Thus, the Voice Control Speed dial doesn't work, other than for the preset Voicemail. I also cannot get the V1 to manually accept inbound calls (per the instruction manual) to the speed dial function since the Palm doesn't recognize the call as active until you answer, per customer support.
I also cannot get the phone to answer by voice command, apparently due to the same issue. The caller ID doesn't always announce the number correctly either, even though it's showing on my phone correctly.
Otherwise, the headset has excellent sound and reasonably comfortable fit. It can still be used by pushing the button on the handset, so I'll end up keeping it for sound and comfort in the event I upgrade to a different phone down the road where it's better compatible.
Any Verizon 700p users that have better experiences please let me know your work-around. BlueAnt apparently can't help.
