    When I try Google Voice Actions (clicking the microphone in the upper right corner of the home screen) and say, "Call John Smith" it will show a phone icon next to a bunch of things like "John Smith Plumbing" and "John Smith Sales" but even though John Smith is in my contacts it never finds him (obviously John Smith is a fake example)! Instead it prints those businesses and then "Call John Smith" as a web search option. It's the same for ALL my contacts! Anyone know how to get this to work?

    it's hit & miss.... at times when i use it to call my barber ahead of time, it gives me other options, some times it nails it ....

    once i called a carry out to order food ahead of picking it up.. yes, it dial *yums carry out*, but not the one listed in my address! i arrived at the yum's for my general tao's chicken, & they said there was never an order called in.. lol.. i called the last number dialed & canceled the order at that yum's...

    Yes, but that's a slightly different issue. It correctly interprets what I'm saying "call John Smith" but never shows the contact "john smith" as an option! If I type it instead, it does show the contact.

    Having same issue. I'd hold the search button in GB and it was flawless ... now in ICS the voice recognition seems much worse? Even with talking to compose a message... seems to happen phone side vs. server side like before. The accuracy is abysmal.
