Bing Voice Search
I just got a Fascinate and found this forum looking for an answer as to why the Bing Voice Search does not operate correctly. Actually I have already called Verizon and was told by the service tech that it is a known issue that the 2.2 release will fix the problem. I was curious if this issue is wide spread and if its worth keeping a phone which is not completely functional right out of the box. The problem is that if I initiate a voice search by holding down the search softkey on the lower right front of the phone it goes to the voice search dialog, listens than thinks (stated on the screen), a blue window actually shows the word I spoke correctly almost every time, but then I get a popup that states "due to a temporary conection or service issue we can't get results please try again". This happens 99% of the time. It is also the case if I initiate the voice search using the microphone icon on bing's search page or if I use the desktop dock (I actually like the dock itself) which has a permanent application icon for the same voice search on it when the phone is plugged into it. I have a Google voice search app on my screen which operates flawlessly but it appears I cant swap the Google app with the Bing easily. I see there is a way that is mentioned on this forum but I'm not that tech savvy to pull it off. It I guess I'm just looking for some opinions on this.
