Re: Voice dialing with device

I left Verizon (waited for two years!) to join AT&T because I wanted the IPHONE. I had NO IDEA that voice dial was not part of the deal and is not included in the phone. I bought the bluetooth headpiece assuming I would have voicedial, which I had become very used to on Verizon only to find out that because the IPHONE did not have it built in, I would have to pay another $5.00 in addition to the $60.00 I already pay for data and the $30 I pay for text messaging. I have written to AT&T (and am awaiting a reply) to say that I feel voice dial these days is a necessity especially in a car. AND, after all those fees for the iphone, I am not willing to pay another $5.00 for voice dial; I feel it should be included in the basic contract if nothing else, then for safety. It is illegal in NYS to drive and talk on the phone without a headphone, but it makes no sense and is essential not safe or legal if one is tempted to look at phone to call someone when voice dial would fulfill the requirement. I guess I feel that AT&T charges enough fees without charging for this one also.
