connected it to my car via bluetooth and unlike any other phone, when i get a message , it asks if i want to read it.
After reading it out, it asks if i want to call that person or i am done.
beautiful. and wanted to just post it out there so it comes in google search when other people are searching.
it also has option to disable Read incoming text messages aloud so if u r playing music at a party, you dont want to be disturbed.
great feature inbuilt since bluetooth on most cars can be quite limited.
using the standard CCC system which lacks the new features of BMW F10 but thanks to this phone, my biggest headache while driving is gone.

I don't have a blue tooth enabled car but I do have a stereo with an aux input jack. I mount my phone, connect the aux from the radio to the phone's headphone jack. I then get the same options as you to have test messages read to me which comes over the car speakers. This has the added benefit of muting the music as the message is being read. This also allows me to use the phone as a GPS nav unit that will also mute the music and give turn by turn over the car speakers.

^ good idea... but i have a habit of not using my phones as a music player because i never enjoy the sound quality and reduced battery life.
maybe after the new nokia wireless charging car stand is on sale, i will consider as it will charge my phone so i can use it as a full time gps.

Works well doesnt it... its been there since wp7. It even downloads the phonebook to the CCC drive.

This is an absolute necessity for me and I have been grateful for it ever since fist using it on my HTC HD7, I had a brief dalliance with android last year in the form of a HTC One x but it did not have this functionality built in and I could not find an app that replicated it. Simple but soooooo useful!

this is a feature on all window's phones.
You can enabled or dissable it at any time or tell it to read text via bluetooth/headset/or all the time.
I love this feature. The new update also gives you the option to reply to the text via speech when in bluetooth mode.

My new 2013 bMW 3 series doesn't read out text messages from either my 920 (either before or after the amber update), or my wife's lumia 800. It has basic Bluetooth telephone for calls and downloading the phone book etc.
My previous BMW worked fine. Have they changed something?

It works great on my 2011 Audi A4 Quattro too.. One good thing about this feature is it reads back your spoken message and gives an option to send or re-record until you get it right. Works pretty well.. and this is with stock/built-in Bluetooth...

At least that's how it should work, some Bluetooth systems think they are smarter than my phone and won't tell the phone to listen, but instead use it's own internal system which sucks (I'm talking to you Subaru!).

Very bad Microsoft :(
I opened this thread @ Microsoft
