There is no feature for that on the iphone, you can send a suggestion to Apple here http://www.apple.com/feedback/

There is an app for iphone called "Descreet Text". It may work for you.

If you have AT&T there is an app called AT&T DriveMode that you can use.
****Sorry, didn't realize that it wasn't for iPhones. I'm an idiot.

I have also been looking for an app to do this, but have not found one to do the job.

Not helpful, but I think it's a sad day in 2012 that ANYONE needs to be told not to text while driving. The laws are too long coming. Even reading a text while driving is dangerous. Common sense.

If u read my original post, which is what CliveStevens had responded to, u'd realize its not about texting while driving. it's about the complete opposite.

I, myself have been searching forever for a good app that can do this. Unfortunately..SIRI is the closest thing as ED3K had mentioned. Although the time needed to get siri going and to send a text.....you might as well call them on your handsfree and tell them you cant text...

I looked into that "Discreet" text app you mentioned. Unfortunately, it's still not what I'm looking for because even tho ur responsing with a pretyped messaged, you still have to physically use ur phone to respond. :-( And I have the 4s so I do not have Siri on my phone.

I would suggest you take a look at DriveSafe.ly. I'm pretty sure that this does what you want. I am a recent Apple convert (I used to be on BlackBerry), and I used drivesafe.ly over there. I haven't installed it yet, but it had an auto-reply mode that sensed when you were driving and activated itself. It would also read your texts and emails back to you without Siri. Here's the list of features:
- Reads your text messages and emails out loud in real time
- Hands Free - No need to touch the phone while driving
- One-touch activation - no complicated setup
- Bluetooth and radio transmitter compatible
- Reads text message shorthand (lol, brb)
- Optional customizable auto-responder

i appreciate your input. i immediately went to the app store and checked out drivesafe.ly as u suggested. if u haven't done so, u may want to. warning, ur going to be disappointed, as i was. the app has a disclaimer at the beginning of the description that explains how even tho it's now available for iphone, it is not compatible to do the SMS text message replies on i0S. it's got a whole bunch of stipulations on ways it will work with iphone and ways it won't. almost every review is horrific! and that's for the things it's supposed to work with on iphone, like the email part.
unfortunately, this won't work for me. i was hoping it would. thanx again.
