    Anyone can feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm fairly sure that bluetooth headsets can't trigger voice control at this time. I know that takes a great deal of the usefulness out of having voice control, but I think for right now you're just out of luck. I vaguely remember something on TUAW noting that a few days ago. I'll post a link if I find it.

    I have the same setup (3G S and Jawbone Prime) and would love to find a solution to invoke the voice dial from a headset. Anyone get a definite 'no' from Aliph? I wonder if this is a hardware or software limitation.

    This is actually not true. I managed to get a beta account to MyTalk which allows you to download options for your phone. I logged in to MyTalk and installed the voice dial app. My assumption is that the voice dial app was there all along. But I think what did the trick is rebooting my phone. Once I did that, now when I press the talk button on my jawbone icon, the voice dial comes on. The bad thing is that there is a long delay but otherwise it works.

    To activate voice control I just hold the button on my Plantronics 925 for about the same lenght of time I would hold the iphone home button.

    ok heres the real deal at least with the jawbone...with 3.1 and the 3gs the voice command worked with the jawbone prime but not would work for awhile then seem to go to would press the button on the side and nothing happened to bring it back you had to do a soft reset on the phone...with the new jawbone model it seems to work everytime...I dont know if the software on the jawbone is better or more compatible? I think the new model is superior to the jawbone prime in every way but that is one person's experience...I don't believe the mytalk software download had anything to do with my voice command worked perfectly for a week or so before I became a beta user of mytalk...I downloaded and synced with mytalk...besides all the neat stuff the software does to personalize your jawbone , the volume level on my earpiece I have 2 of them increased to satisfactory levels...a problem I had been discussing with you know there is no volume control on the earpiece ...its controled by the phone vol and until I synced each earpiece with mytalk the vol level seemed a little its great... hope this helps ...btw the same thing happened with the plantronics

    20 years later and I am done moving...
    It works for me with my Jawbone 2, Jawbone Prime (Earcandy) and now Jawbone Icon. Hold the top button for two seconds and it will activate it and long as you have the updated software on your iPhone.
