normal position near to your ear.

• Very short names are not accepted. Use long names and avoid similar names for

different numbers.


You must say the name exactly as you said it when you recorded it.

This may be difficult in, for example, a noisy environment or during an emergency,
so you should not rely solely upon voice dialing in all circumstances.

Assign a voice tag to a phone number

You must record a voice tag (up to two seconds) for a phone number before you can use the
voice dialing feature to dial it.



At the start screen, press the scroll up or the scroll up keys. Scroll to the desired phone book
entry, and press Details.


Scroll to the phone number you want to tag and press Options.


Scroll to Add voice tag and press Select. (The phone displays Press Start, then speak after
the tone


Press Start and after the tone, speak the voice tag clearly into the phone’s microphone.


Your phone informs you if recording is not successful. Press OK to try again or Back

to return to phone book.

The message Voice tag saved is displayed upon completion of the recording process. The


next to a phone number denotes that a voice tag exists for this number.


• The recording process stops automatically; pressing Quit aborts the recording attempt.

• Unique tags are recognized more accurately. Consider using first and last name or first

name, last name, and number type (for example, mobile, home, work, etc.) when tagging
a number. For example, John Smith, work.

• Avoid pauses or silence as you record the voice tag.

• If the voice tag memory is full, the phone displays Delete an existing voice tag? Press OK,

scroll to locate a tag to delete, then press Delete.

• Deleting a phone number deletes any associated voice tags.


Do not use a voice tag for dialing emergency numbers. In emergencies,

stress causes changes in your voice, which may keep the phone from recognizing
your voice command.

You must say the name exactly as you said it when you recorded it.


At the start screen, press and hold Contacts for two seconds. A tone is heard and Please speak

If the voice tag is not recognized by the phone (or if you fail to speak a tag within

three seconds after the tone), the message Name not recognized is displayed, and you
are returned to the start screen.


When the voice tag is recognized, the phone book entry will be displayed for three seconds
and the voice tag is replayed through the ear piece.

After three seconds, the number is dialed.

The only other option for initiating voice dialing is to press the headset button momentarily at
the start screen. The alert tones plays through the headset.

Speak the voice tag into the headset microphone. The voice tag will playback through the
headset to confirm your choice.

Work with voice tags

You can listen to an existing voice tag (in case you forgot what you recorded), rerecord a voice
tag, or delete an existing tag.


At the start screen, press Contacts. Scroll to Voice tags, then press Select.


This option displays a list of the contacts/numbers that have a voice tag assigned.


Scroll to the phone number whose voice tag you want to edit, then press Options.


Scroll to either Playback, Change, or Delete, and press Select.


If you chose Change, press Start to begin rerecording. The new tag that is

recorded replaces the old information.

the phone number in either of the following ways:

• Press the number key that corresponds to a 1-touch dialing location and press the Send key.

• Press and hold the key that corresponds to a 1-touch dialing location until the call begins.
