Bluetooth headset with text read/dictate capability?

    I have a Samsung Epic 4G with Android 2.2

    I bought the CommandOne bluetooth headset, because the Motospeak app for it is supposed to read texts to me and let me speak back into the headset, which sends a text right back. In fact, a Motorola salesperson told me that it would be compatible with my phone. Well...it isn't. Sucks, because I bought it from a supplier who does not accept returns, and Motorola will not credit me back for the device either.

    Anyway, I still want a decent headset with these same capabilities. Is there one (non-Motorola) that will read texts to me AND let me dictate a text back to someone with my bluetooth?

    If not, do any of you have an opinion on the Blueant Q2? That's my next choice, as it SEEMS like it would have great sound quality and it will at least read texts to me, if it won't let me dictate them back.

    Ok,,im sorta new at all this,,,Im trying to understand your question,,let me explain what I can do and see if it helps at all. I love to listen to music,, and lectures I download or books,,I use my text to speech program with a Michael voice for most all of this but the music,,,,I have a program I use that reads text files and many others files,,,and a pdf reader,,,I do these 80 percent of the time via bluetooth. I have several sets of bluetooth,,one is jabra stereo,,one motorola stereo, and one mono bluetooth. Al three wqill play my text or lectures,,,via a program I use on my phone I also am able to make absolutely any bluetooth it seems play text to speech or whatnot,,,even my mono ear piece plqys text or whatever file I have read. I believe this is due to two main programs,,threee if you count the text to speech,,,,I use "BT MONO" and. "MOONREADER",,not sure if this helps anyone at all, was just an attempt to help.

    this sounds like it is along the lines of what i'm trying to do. Here is what Motospeak is supposed to do:

    you receive an incoming text on your phone. Automatically, your bluetooth headset notifies you that you have received a text and who it is from. The device then speaks the text to you. After that, you are given the option to speak back into the headset, at which point your speech is translated into text, which is then sent to the person who just texted you.

    Do these programs you mentioned combine to allow me to do all that?

    I need a bluetooth for my htc evo 4g and I want something to use for more than calls. Maybe read text and other cool features. Maybe something I could give a command like check facebook (seems unreal) but if its possible then that's what I'm looking for. Must be high quality stuff.
