Rant

Iphone CANNOT Bluetooth voice dial

by mejones645x / November 14, 2013 9:49 AM PST

My old LG , when pressing the Bluetooth button , would beep twice and you would state whom to call and the phone would dial who you said. Freaking remarkable. Now the Iphone , when the Bluetooth button is pressed just dials the last number dialed. Kind of limits the hands free ability, that is unless you just RECEIVE calls for Bluetooth use. Why can't APPLE just have an option to determining what happens when the Bluetooth button is pressed. It already senses the press. I guess apple is paying their programmers to much or too little to fix this issue or maybe apple is planning a "SPECIAL" headset that does accept voice commands. They did it with their proprietary cables and chargers. Jeez lets screw the customers some more their all sheep any way. Now I got to go buy an ANDROID ****ing sucks.

How peculiar
by mrmacfixit Forum moderator / November 14, 2013 8:54 PM PST

I have an iPhone and a Bose Bluetooth earpiece.
Pressing the earpiece button, I can only presume that this is what you are calling the "Bluetooth button" because the iPhone does not have a Bluetooth button, connects me to Siri.
From there I can get her to call anyone in my contacts list or direct her to dial a specific number.

If I press the same button twice, the iPhone will dial the last number dialed.

Bottom line, methinks your rant is misplaced.

...list the iPhone model/iOS version, or bluetooth headset make/model. How could you possible think that's enough information for someone to be able to troubleshoot your particular issue?

As written, it's a poorly constructed rant at best. The rest of us learn how to manipulate both types of devices for our benefit....
