    Hello All. My first post here although I've been lurking for a few days. I am currently a (longtime) iPhone user and am finally serisouly considering making the switch to Android for a number of reasons (that I won't go into at this point).

    I am killing myself trying to decide between the HTC One X and the SG3! I keep going back and forth, sure I made my decision, only to change my mind! Driving me crazy!

    Anyway, my question is about "driving mode". I picked up a Nokia Lumia 900 for fun a few weeks back (anyone want to buy a well priced perfect condition Lumia 900? ) and, when I used via bluetooth, I got a great surprise. My wife messaged me and the Lumia announed her text over the system, asked me if I wanted to hear it (I said yes), then let me reply and read my reply back to me before asking if I wanted to send...All without ever taking my hands off the wheel or looking away from the road. Awesome.

    I've been googling and researching and have yet to find a definitive answer as to whether the SG3 can do this as well.

    Can anyone confirm or comment?

    Thanks much and I'm looking forward to learning a ton more about android and eventually rooting!

    Maybe try Vlingo? I haven't used it, so I'm not familiar with all its features, but it may come close to what you're looking for.

    Unfortunately, S3 does not have the feature you are looking for. Vlingo driving mode does not work on S3. They have a beta app Vlingo Labs and that too doesn't work either. I am yet to find an app that will work perfectly with bluetooth and can read texts. IMO S-Voice is useless.
