How is the accuracy on the Voice Actions? I had no idea it even existed until I saw a Maxx tv commercial. One of the reasons I considered getting an iphone was for Siri (even though I know it's not perfect). So for those of you that use Voice Actions, do you like it?

I love the voice actions. They aren't as conversational like Siri is, but they are practical and work pretty damn well.

Although there are some names in my contacts would need to be edited to get the pronunciation correct, it's not so much a deal breaker for me. I mainly use it to go straight to a website, to set my alarm, or to show off to my girlfriend who struggles with Siri. Love it.

awesomeness. i also have to say i enjoy using it. i wouldn't recommend trying it in a convertible, but it does work fairly well. unless you are like my wife and have a deep southern accent. then it doesn't work so well :-\

Lol I generally don't have an issue with it, but my dad, who has a remarkably thick Filipino accent, will get the wildest responses and it's hilarious to watch.

I get annoyed that when I send a text message from the voice actions, it won't capitalize the first letter of the message. Other than that, it's pretty spot on...

Just a fun fact, a while ago I read somewhere (might have even been here on AC) that Steve Wozniak (co-founder of Apple) carries a Razr (as well as a iPhone 4s) and prefers Voice Actions to Siri because he says Voice Actions is more accurate and reliable.
