Voice Command Your Blackberry Smartphone
It’s a kind of annoying when you accidentally press the voice dial button and hear the message on the Blackberry. In fact I had disabled the voice dialing from this button, but ever since I learned the below tricks from Blackberry website it was convenient for me to quick dial a contact. I believe you will also like it once you try the below voice command options.
“Call < contact name or phone number >”
Say this voice command to make a call. To perform this task with a Bluetooth enabled device, such as a hands free car kit or wireless headset, the paired Bluetooth enabled device must support this feature and you must turn on Bluetooth technology. You cannot make calls to emergency numbers using voice commands.
“Call < contact name > < phone number type >”
Say this voice command to call a specific phone number for a contact that is in your contact list. For example, if the contact has a work phone number and a mobile phone number, you can say “Call work” to call the work phone number.
“Call extension < extension number >”
Say this voice command to dial an extension. To perform this task, you must set options for dialing extensions. You can dial extensions only within your company.
“Check my phone number”
If you have multiple phone numbers associated with your BlackBerry device, say this voice command to check your active phone number.
“Check signal strength”
Say this voice command to check your wireless coverage level.
Say this voice command to check the wireless network that your device is connected to.
Say this voice command to check the battery power level.
Say this voice command to have the last voice prompt repeated to you.
Say this voice command to close the voice dialing application.
