    I can't figure out how to turn the caller ID announcer off. I don't want my phone to announce who's calling. Please help.

    Driving mode will announce caller ID info. Pull down the notification bar, scroll toward the right side of the toggles and make sure Driving mode is turned off. Alternative method - Settings / Language and input / Text-to-speech output / Driving Mode (off)

    I don't know which carrier you are on or what type of GS3 you have, but this may help. From the Verizon user manual:
    Text-to-speech output
    Text-to-speech (TTS) provides audible readout of text, for
    example, the contents of text messages, and the Caller ID for
    incoming calls.
    1. From the Home screen, touch Menu, then select
    Settings . Language and input . Text-to-speech output.
    2. Touch a setting to configure:
    . Preferred TTS engine
    . Select Google Text-to-speech Engine, or Samsung TTS.
    . General
    . Speech rate: Choose a rate at which text readouts are spoken.
    . Listen to an example: Play a sample of speech synthesis.
    . Driving mode: When enabled, incoming calls and new
    notifications are read out automatically. Touch to
    enable. Touch Driving mode to choose items for readout when
    Driving mode is enabled.

    Oops, Doit2it beat me while I was looking at the manual.
