    Hi everyone!

    A search didn't seem to show much on this... so I was wondering do you all use Voice Control?

    I have switched it to English and I am getting some crazy results. Oh! I speak BBC English so maybe that's why..:p

    I said 'Play...Queen' and the reply from the iPhone was 'Call Gordon Brown, multiple numbers'.... ( something like that. )

    I am worried to try because on one occasion, I said 'play..' and it started to dial my friends phone and I didn't even say a name...

    Please tell me your experiences of Voice Control!!

    Try saying "Play Music Queen"

    I've got a stammer so I don't use it much,

    While its a nice feature that a lot of people wanted... i have used it ZERO times. I tried a few but that was it.

    I usually say 'play music by (artist)' and that typically works. the only issue I have with it is how it mispronounces some artists, like kanye west, although I don't listen to him much any more due to his rudeness at the VMA's

    ive used it a few times from my bluetooth head set in the car. always works fine dialing a name, not so good when speaking a number to it, never tried with music as i dont put any on my iPhone!

    It works for me not a problem. I do have to be particular about how I say things though. Accents probably send it for a loop.

    I got a new set of clubs a few weeks ago I've tried them by swinging them but I haven't hit a ball with them. So I have tried them a few times but used them ZERO.

    I use it to make phone calls, but have found it pretty much useless for controlling the iPod.

    no. you've still used them, just not how they are intended to be used. you could have been swinging them at mailboxes for all we know. that's still using them. same principle applies here. trying and using are the same thing. because to try them requires using them

    I use it all the time in my car, both for music and calls. It works pretty well for me- not fantastic, nowhere near perfect, but worthwhile. It helsp to speak very clearly, right into the microphone. I've people from England (or did they say GB) in this or some other forum complaining about it not understanding their accent though.
