    Recently, my bluetooth has taken to reading out my texts out loud, which is a huge problem when I'm connected to external bluetooth speakers. An embarrassing problem that must stop. At all costs.

    I don't know what's changed and I don't know what to do to stop this. The only clue I have is that in "Application Manager", when I go to "Bluetooth Share" and scroll down to "Permissions", it lists:

    edit your text messages (SMS or MMS)
    read your text messages (SMS or MMS)
    recieve text messages (SMS)
    send SMS messages - this may cost you money

    I suspect it's the "read your text messages" that's causing my problem (although I am not smartphone savvy by any means so my suspicion may not be worth much) but there is seemingly no way to edit these permissions from this screen. It makes no sense to list the permissions but make them impossible to edit, so I'm sure they can be edited somewhere but I just don't know where.

    Can anyone help? There's a gold star in this for you. Two, even. I will commemorate your name in these forums.

    Please and thank you

    There are options in your phone's settings, under Accessibility, to read out certain notifications, but I thought only Car Mode was supposed to read texts out loud.

    Have you tried forgetting the BT device and re-pairing with your phone and see if there's a Text Message readout prompt?
