Has Windows Phone 8/8.1 hands-free response texting function been removed?


One of the great things about my Windows Phone is that while driving, incoming text messages are read to me over my car radio via Bluetooth and then I’m asked if I want to reply, which I can do hands-free via voice which is then sent as a text. All without touching my phone or any controls on the car. Recently, however, my response attempts fail with status such as “The Internet and I are not talking right now”. This used to happen only when I forgot to turn on the data connection, but now it seems to happen consistently even when the data connection is active.

Has anyone else experienced this problem (if anyone here still has a WP 8/8.1) or is this likely to be a problem with my individual phone? Thanks.
