Hi PaulaW!

Let's get to the bottom of this! To access Caller ID ReadoutSmiley Frustratedettings>Assist>Driving or Home. Additionally, for a LED notification I suggest downloading an application from the Pay Store.

Turbo uses active display notifications and no LED.  You can get an app in the PLAY Store which might control the camera flash, but that will get super annoying fast and kill the battery fast as well.

I thank you for your assistance! But I find that driving assist doesn't readout callers id when not driving.. So this is the bottom line here is that upgrading to this "Turbo" lost me 2 highly useful and important settings from my "HD" and my "X2" That Sucks!!

Thanks for the info.. I appreciate your taking the time!!  I'm not impressed with the "Turbo" rather disappointing they took away simple yet extremely useful tools!

I found some apps in the Play Store for Caller ID readout, but there are a lot of them, so I can't really choose for you if you decide to go a 3rd party route.

We understand you want to continue using that great feature, Paula. I have good news! Motorola actually improved that service from past phones and put it into the TalkBack feature of the Turbo. To access this service, go into Settings? Accessibility > TalkBack and switch the service on at the top right. Once you walk through the tutorial, you can go back to the initial TalkBack menu and tap settings to chose what you want the phone to read out to you, like Caller ID.

I had that set up, it keeps stopping and I am getting frustrated. All I want is for it to tell me who is calling and light up when I miss something... I really don't think I like the enhancements yet.  lol

If that's what your developers consider an"improvement", you need to FIRE your developers! 

That Talkback feature is awful! It does NOT have any way to only read out the incoming caller id as per the OP! 

I love my Droid Turbo II, but I sure do miss my Droid RAZR's "Incoming Call from xxxx! You have an Incoming Call You have an incoming Call" feature!!!!! That was the best feature Motorolla phones ever had (and if a person didn't like it they could turn it off)! Talk about a downgrade.... ughhh!
