That's good info, because I wouldn't make a call in my car,
while driving.  I don't even see any LGs on the two lists I
saw, so maybe that is indicative of Bluetooth phones in
general?  I just hate to be limited to 1 or 2 models, which
may not have the features I want.

If you can upload your contacts/phone book to the Prius, you can then
select from the Prius' phonebook 17 numbers to put into the 3 pages of
one-touch dial numbers.  You can press one of these one-touch dial
buttons on the screen to make an outgoing phone call while driving your
Prius.  Also, if your cell phone supports voice dialing, you can dial
out on your phone and the conversation will be over the Prius' system.

Otherwise, you'd have to dial manually on your phone while driving, or
else pull over/stop to dial on the Prius.

If voice dialing works like the rest of the commands, it will go something
like this:

Driver:  Call Jean
Nav Moron:  Searching for Jamaican Restaurant

Uh-oh.  I am looking at those lists.  Seems there are (or
were) more listed in the user guides than appear elsewhere.  I
don't know why it seems I have pretty much NO choice of phone
if I want to use this system.  There is virtually NO
intersection between the two lists (Toyota's and Verizon's).

 No, you cannot voice dial with the Prius, so no Navigation needed (you
can have Bluetooth phone support on a 2006 Prius without getting the
Navigation package).

I was mentioning that some phones allow you to give it voice commands
to dial.  True enough, the phone may not have very good voice
recognition, but I doubt that the phone would search for a restaurant.
