    Hi all.
    When I had my Lumia800 one of the best features it had which other phones I've used didn't, was the ability to read through the car speakers via Bluetooth any sms that arrived. It first gave you the option to hear the message or save till later, it played the message back, then gave you the option to dictate a message back and send it.. all without touching the phone.. excellent..

    Question. Does the 920 have the same ability?

    Thanks...

    Unfortunately, this feature does not work as well in Windows Phone 8 as it does in 7 or 7.5. With my 7.5 phone, my text messages would be read aloud no matter what Bluetooth speaker I was connected to. Disappointingly, Windows Phone 8 does not read aloud to any bluetooth device that I have except for my car which is Microsoft's Ford Sync. I have read elsewhere where many have confirmed that text messages are not being read aloud in any bluetooth device including cars which are not Ford Sync. This malfunction is very disappointing along with the problem of not being able to load Xbox video onto my phone.

    Interesting, you can always set it to always announce not just bluetooth in "SPEECH" settings. I preferred over my Jawbone Bluetooth only. My L920 works great and no complain.

    Not sure who's having issues, but my 920 has worked great reading text with all my Bluetooth as well as wired devices. I actually think it works better than my WP7.5 device. Before dictating text messages via Bluetooth was very flaky, now it works great.

    The WP8 system works exactly the same way as the 7.X system, with the added benefit of a more natural-sounding voice reading the text messages.

    I noticed the more natural voice also. It appears to be more accurate when I am dictating a text message than it was before. I like the option to add more to a text message with 8. My 920 works great Bluetooth or wired.
