How to use voice or Siri to tell caller while on hand free?

While on bluetooth handfree or iPhone connects to the car via bluetooth, it will be nice to hear caller's name when incoming call comes. I think Siri can do that but not sure where to set it in the settings.

Almost 1000 reads and no reply! Guess there is no such feature? Too bad.

Since, my car doesn't have an integrated Bluetooth system, I have Jaba Freeway portable speakerphone. The voice commands allows me access Siri to make calls and the unit itself announces the caller if it is a contact. I think it depends on the Bluetooth device if the caller is announced.

What's your question?

You want the name of the caller's name announced in your car's bluetooth system?

That would depend on your bluetooth device/system. You'll need to enter the person's name and phone number into your car's contact list. Then your car's bluetooth system should announce the person's name if it supports it and is in the contact list. Otherwise it will just say the phone number.

Did you read the OP? It's "How do you get Siri to announce the name of callers?".
