    I've been googling around for the documentation, but to no avail. I need help here.

    I am using a Motorola S305 Bluetooth headset. It _is_ capable of relaying voice commands to my iPhone once Voice Control is activated by pressing the Home button on the iPhone. However, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to activate Voice Control itself from the headset. Without that, this new feature will be pretty much useless for me.

    Some say pressing the "main" button of the BT headset, which normally picks up (or hangs up) a phone call, will do it. Others say shouting "Phone" into the BT mic will. Neither method works for me.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    On the right ear pad there is a little arrow depress that once and it will bring up the voice control. Hit it twice and it will re-dial the last number.

    If it does not initially work reset phone.

    Just pictured someone doing this on the subway. :D

    YOU ARE THE SAVIOUR!

    It worked perfectly. I'll be honest with you... I just bought the headset and did not even realize the button (with the phone receiver logo) was there. Shame on me.

    Thank you again! You made my day. :)

    Well, I got it working. Glad it wasn't my shout volume. LOL

    Works on mine. You need to hold the Noiseassassin back button down for 2 seconds.

    Thanks! I did it by accident once, but I could never figure out how I did it. I guess that was mostly because my headset was in my pocket.

    Okay, I must be the biggest retard in the world because I still can't get it to work. Do I have to manually turn something on (other than bluetooth) to get it to work? Thanks guys!

    Edit- I just had to press harder. I dropped my jawbone too many times :)

    No, that's me. It was so stupid of me to not know which button to press. :D
