When I receive a text message, a voice indicates 'text message from' and the corresponding name from my contact list. This happens on all sound levels except vibrate and silent, and I cannot figure out how to turn off this audible notification. I would prefer simply a tone that would tell me that I have a message, rather than have the name of the sender announced. Please help!
You need to go to the settings of the phone, then go to Tools ➔ Voice Commands ➔ press the right soft key to access the options. Look for prompts and then go to Read Out and disable that feature. This should take care of it.
