I've had my Lumia 900 for a few weeks (first windows phone). I've had two moments when I was startled by my speaking phone.
I looked up directions to the nearest Trader Joes but zoomed out to choose a different route since the interstate was a parking lot. I pulled over close to my destination to check the map again and the phone spoke when I opened the map "you have taken a different direction"... (ok, I confess dear Lumia I don't follow directions well). The phone proceeded to ask me if I wanted new directions.
Today I had the phone paired with my car blue tooth and was making calls. When I tried to call one individual by saying "call Jane Doe mobile" I was startled to hear.... "you have a message from Jane Doe". The phone proceeded to ask it I wanted to save or listen to the message and I continued through the prompts to listen, reply, and send a response. I never touched the phone.
I guess I missed something. I didn't know Windows Phone did all that. I knew it had voice commands but this is way beyond voice commands.

If you want this feature on and its turned off, go to Settings, then Speech and at the bottom set if you want it on all the time or just Bluetooth or whatever. That's only for Text messages

I wish I could get mine to do that. When mine is tethered to my car it doesn't read messages or anything. Any voice based things I have to do require me to tap away at my phone to confirm and read and everything so its anything but hand free. I wish I could figure out how to get it to work properly.
