E50 and Voice Commands

I've just upgraded from a 6230i to the E50 and so far I'm very pleased with my new phone. I have one niggle though to do with voice commands.

I travel a lot by car and use a BT headset with voice activation. The 6230i allowed me a range of voice commands recorded in my own voice. These worked perfectly and reduced the amount of handling my phone required and therefore made me a safer driver.

With the E50 there is a pre-installed computerised voice that pronounces the names in my contacts list in a weird voice that I'm finding almost impossible to replicate in my strong Irish accent!

Is there a way to deactivate this synthesised voice and record my own commands? It's coming close to spoiling an otherwise excellent phone for me.

All new S60v3 devices are like that. You can disable, but not put your own voice tags. But it works more or less well most of times, at least for me.
