    Can the HTC Desire say who is calling along with the ring tone?
    I had a Nokia E71 which did this.
    Any help please?

    For texts You can use

    1,Vlingo - It will speak the callers/ texters name and then speak the texts and emails, and you can also dictate your emails and texts if you are driving.

    2, Speech alert - just reads callers name and then the texts/emails.

    I've installed saymyname and It works great, saying the name of the caller and the sender of text messages too. Excellent.

    I use a script in Tasker

    My phone is set up to announce caller/texter name and will also read out text messages when I am driving

    Can you give a pointer on what the Tasker task needs to do to make this work?
