    I'd like to use this built in feature when I'm driving but there's no way I'm going all the way into the settings every time I want to turn it on or off. Anything to make this a little easier?

    Well I guess it doesn't matter too much, it won't work with gosms, only the stock sms. But it still would be nice to know for if they ever fix the stock one.

    I downloaded handcent just because of the messaging issues. I allowed "pop ups." Every time I get a message it pops up on my screen and all I have to do is push the icon and it speaks the text to me. No need to unlock or anything. I pull it out of my purse in time to see the pop up and I just choose whatever option I want from the pop up (Read text out loud, or text to speech). It's pretty convenient.

    I don't know how the driving mode tts works, I didn't get a chance to try it without Handcent.

    I've tried handcent, I really didn't like it, I don't know why, but I didn't. That would be a nice feature. Hopefully they will fix the stock one soon.
