    Am switching over to an iPhone from a Samsung dumb phone.

    What the Samsung offered was PTT (push to talk) where voice recognition stepped in. Only had to say "call office"

    Is this technology possible with an older iPhone (no Siri)?

    If not what is the best way to make hands free calls from numbers stored in the phone?

    Must be a Samsung term or AT&T

    Our old Moto flip phone has the same feature (w/ Verizon)

    We clip to the automobile visor and simply reach up and press (the correct button) to turn on voice command.

    What you're referring to is voice dialing, not PTT. Older iPhones sans Siri (3GS & 4) support voice dialing.

    How is it accomplished?

    Just got the iPhone 3G so am out of the loop.

    Okay? That's still not what he wants to accomplish, hence PTT was not what he thought it meant.
