What is needed for voice-to-text texting on Android?

I've never had an Android phone, and, all I really
want is voice-to-text texting and perhaps also the
speaking back of the message, hands free.

I don't want a data plan - so that's why I'm going with
T-Mobile (I already have unlimited texting).

Who told you that? Google "voice to text on Android" and get right off
the top:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ice.text&hl=en
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...NvbmFsaWdodCJd

This took less than 30 seconds to do.

Not only that, but my Samsung Galaxy S3 and my wife's Note II came with the
native ability to use voice as an entry method for nearly everything,
including texts, Google searches, navigation queries, emails, etc. Anytime
the keyboard pops up to allow text entry, a microphone 'key' is also
included that lets us switch to voice input.

Regarding the OP's question, yes, an Internet connection is necessary to do
the voice to text conversion, at least on the two phones I mentioned above.
I haven't checked to see how the 3rd party apps do it.

Why in the hell do many of you triple post? For instance this msg is
seen on alt.cellular.gsm, alt.cellular-t-mobile, & alt.cellular.tech.

Another msg, "Suggestion for a $200 Android T-Mobile phone with a
recent OS" had over 40 replies and was seen on these 3 newsgroups.

I happen to subscribe to all 3 and this necessitates marking all 3 as
read even though I am not about to read them. If this continues I'll
simply unsubscribe and you will remain out of my face.

To reach the target readership, obviously. I don't subscribe to
all three of those groups.

Decent newsreader software should mark all relevent posts as read
once one is.

I'm pretty sure you do NOT need a data plan to have the voice to text feature work.
But you do need a cellular signal.

Followup-To set to alt.cellular.t-mobile which is the active group in the triad.

Maybe it's bad manners to short-circuit the OP's distribution intentions.

I don't have a data plan and my S3 translates voice to text without the Internet using the basic Google voice application.

I thought we needed a data plan for that to work?
