Hi and welcome to the forums!
First on the curve you have some options you can set regarding voice dialing
go to options voice dialing and you can set the sensitivity audio prompts ect.
Also, if you use just first names (I used to) it's not as accurate. Once I changed to full names t worked great.
If your asking for voice recognition for dialing Vlingo is good. It takes a while to learn you patterns, but it dials,
you can dictate emails, etc. You can tell it to Google, Yahoo, any major browser and it will place the words to search the browser you select. Oh by the way, it's FREE
Does this help?

I was just thinking, this is not a real common complaint on the forums here. If the voice dialing is that bad on the curve, and you just got it, why not return it. Buying or getting an app may get you voice dialing, but maybe it's a symptom of a bad microphone or a software bug.
I think I'd take it back.

I experience the same problems concerning recognizing my voice.
I do not come from Canada and I have an accent. This turns out to be a serious issue.
Even in my native language it is difficult to use the "2008 VoiceSignal" version which is available with OS 4.5.
I did install my native language as well, but I prefer English, since I live here and no I do not have a speech problem.
I used to have a Nokia as well and the voice recognition was very easily solved by letting the user record their own voice.
Vlingo appears to be a possible solution, but it needs to connect to a server and you get dinged ($$) every time you say a command.
It also does not allow you to record your own commands.
The solution would indeed have to be that someone designs a voice recognition application that allows you to record your own voice.
It will take a little time to record all the commands you want, so a combination with the option with Vlingo (it improves recognition over time) and recording it yourself is the way for me to go.

I have run the Vlingo software for at least 5 months and have not been charged a dime.
In fact, I have been upgraded twice, also with no charge.
