I too have not used Voice Control for playing music, but it seems to work great for dialing friends, even with all their wonky names.
I used to have an old Samsung clamshell that did speech-to-text for txt messages, and while it sounded really awesome, it never worked right. The iPhone is a breeze in comparison. Now if it would only let me speak a text message...

For best results you should say "Play artist <artist name>" Also works for songs and albums. It finds what your looking for a little bit better. When ever I say "Play artist Beyonce" I got 98 degrees once and Piotta twice. Wish there was a way to tell it how to pronounce something. For me, it's more of a hinderence than anything else because 80% of the time I ask it to do something it does it wrong.

@Phoebe: it's so true. It gets artists wrong all the time. Every time I say beyonce it picks the gossip..
and yeah it would be really nice to tell it how to pronounce things. I think apple should update the software though to recognize popular artist names.

I think it works great. But then, I went from Razr V9 to iPhone 3GS. If you think the iPhone voice control is bad, I'll send you my old Razr - see if you can get it to do anything right.
I only use it to place calls while driving - have no need to control iPod function with it.
