    I recently upgraded from an iPhone 4S to an iPhone 5.

    On my 4S, when I was listening to music through earbuds, Siri would semi-interrupt the music to announce: "You have a new message from: " and tell me who it was from.

    I could then decide whether to read it or not.

    Not sure what the settings were in the 4S, or whether it was just something about iOS5 that doesn't exist in iOS 6...but on my iPhone 5 Siri doesn't do that and I miss that feature.

    I have to confess the 4S was jailbroke so maybe it was a jailbroke program?

    That would drive me nuts personally, but I think it was a JB tweak, not aware of that functionality on stock.

    I've just tried this, using Siri to start the music and with just starting the music it's own.

    Didn't work on either...

    Well it was perfect for while I was running because I would know if it was something I needed to read while I was out or could just ignore it until I was done...

    Bummed that it was apparently related to a JB program because I'm fearing it will be a long wait for an iPhone 5 JB.

    It looks like it was "Mail Enhancer Pro"...which you can only get through Cydia.
