    Do you think they plan to expand its capabilities? I'd like to see it start text messages. The calling feature works nice. The voice control is nice, but needs some work in my opinion.

    The one thing about voice control I don't like, is the fact that it won't control Podcasts. All of my music are podcasts, so it's quite annoying when it says "no music found"

    I think the biggest thing about VC is the fact that at least for me it won't work alot of the time. I'll say " Play Michael Jackson. " It'll say.. " Playing Usher. " LoL But it works fine with Google.

    I had trouble with that too and started saying "play artist ......RA The Rugged Man" and it is now accurate almost 100% of the time.
    If what they say is true and BT VC gets added in 3.1 I will be very happy.

    The "play artist..." trick works! but what if i want to play a particular song? Say something like "Black Hole Sun" from Soundgarden? that isn't working out to well. my phone keeps saying "Playing Paul Simon" lol anyone know what I should say in order for it to recognize songs by title rather than artist?

    I wouldn't mind voice control on other areas as well especially with an included voice to text feature for text messages. So while driving, I can launch a txt message app, voice to text dictation of my message and then send confirmation all while driving.

    iPhone 3GS: Tips and Tricks when using Voice Control

    For music playback

    * You can play all songs in an album, playlist, or by an artist. iPhone 3GS will not recognize commands to play a particular song.
    * If you can't get iPhone to recognize the album or artist name, try telling it to play a particular playlist.
    * If an artist has "The" in the name, make sure you say it.

    Hope that helps.

    I'd REALLY like to have a VC feature where you can tell it to play a certain song or album.

    Example: "Play song 'Island in the Sun' by Weezer"
    or, "Play album 'Thriller' By Michael Jackson"
