Im looking at a '98 STS with all the options, including a car phone, and im wondering if it is voice activated? i.e. can I just say the numbers (like the onstar system in the the newer caddy's) or do I have to open the center console and manually type the numbers in the phone?

On the 99 you can say the numbers, but i took all the phone stuff out since it's analog and who uses that any more :>

Jmac572--Is it the OnStar phone in your car? Do you have the phone controls on the steering wheel? If you do, press the phone button for a few seconds and then the voice should come on and say "Ready." It is voice activated.

foo--OnStar works on an analog network. Even the brand new cars with OnStar utilize analog service. Analog service still has alot better coverage than digital service especially in rural areas.
