On the features of Windows Phone 7 it states that you can enable Caller ID Announce which is under the Ease of Access menu, this Ease of Access menu is not present on my unlocked Nokia branded phone.
This feature is essential for me, and was one of the reasons for buying the phone (I was under the impression there was no fragmentation allowed on WP7 phones?), it is especially useful when you're wearing a bluetooth headset to have the callers name announced over it.
This feature was on my N97 so quite why you have ommitted it from the Lumia 800, I don't know.
I have Lumia 800 and I have it under:
Settings – Ease of Access – Enable Speech for Phone Accessibility
So "They" did not leave it out.
There was a thread on this.It has been missed out in various locations. That option doesn't exist on my UK T-Mobile Lumia. It's not something I need but it's not there.

It is a USA FCC requirement. Hence only USA models or models that are also sold in the USA (certain open market) have it.
(Don't shoot the messenger )
Then how come I do have this option on my Lumia 710 from the Netherlands ? Bought it the 30th of may, and it was there. Settings->System->Ease of access->Speech for phone accessibility
Mind I'm dutch, so is my provider. As far as I know, there are no USA FCC requirements in the Netherlands.
I just bought a new lumia 800 and the 'speech for phone accessibilty' option is default off and the slider is missing. I am on Tango. I live in India
I have a friend who has the same setup - Lumia 800 and Tango. He has it.
Is there some way to activate it? I have turned on all possible options in 'speech'
