I have a flip top BB 8220 and have already plenty of contacts, but I need to be able to call the regulars  by voice activation if possible.

Can I add a voice command to an already listed contact name..

Hi and welcome to the forums!


I guess I'm not sure of your question, you have voice dialing installed.

The voice recognition is compatible with the contact list,  you should be able to simply say"call BoB Smith" to dial.

(as long as "Bob Smith" is in your contacts)

Unlike the older cell phones you don't need to set and train voice tags for your contacts. Just say the contacts name as you entered it in your contacts list.
