Announce Caller Name
Just bought a 3GS and very pleased with it but is there no way to get it to announce the caller id?
I'd imagine this is a commonly requested function but when i've got my phones in, i like the fact that it mutes my music and allows me to engage the call but there's no way of knowing who's calling without assigning custom ringtones.. I'd really like it to announce the caller id, is there not an app for this?
PS: i'm aware of the garageband trick but i'd rather this only work when the headphones are connected.

Cheers vandam, that kind of blows though. Hopefully they'll integrate this functionality in os 4.0 as it's a really crappy workaround and i'd much rather it only announced when the headphones are plugged in.
ah well, cheers for the confirmation at any rate.

I would hate this feature. Your phone rings and it announces "John is
calling" or something
Now every time your phone rings everyone knows who your talking to.
I doubt it's anywhere near apples future update plans. Even with just headphones on, pull out your phone and take a look at the screen or make custom ringtones with peoples names if you wanna go that far.

FYI, I developed it because my Nokia (3 years ago!) had TTS Caller ID and I missed it! We offer free versions as well. Just search for autoringtone or ringtones uncensored (the auto app is ideal for caller ID and the uncensored one lets you type "freeform" messages).
