If you pull down the notification bar and look at the settings along the top, scroll all the way to the right. I'd be willing to bet "Drivers Mode" is turned on, as this is a feature of it.

I was wondering why my phone was suddenly telling me I had a text message from so-and-so! I wish the drop-down actions were customizable like they are on the Lucid

Sounds like a setting issue, something along the lines of an auto/interval update or something. What app do you use for email?

As in the "Email" app, right? Not the Gmail one? If Email, how many/what accounts do you have set up?

Have you checked the AOL settings on your computer? Maybe it needs to get permission or something. It definitely sounds like a sync setting problem though.

Quick question for you since you have AOL. My coworker sold a phone to a member the other day and he has AOL. He wants all of his contacts from AOL on his phone. Do you have yours in your phone?

Well since it doesn't seem like this is a widespread issue (even among the forums), I'd say it's definitely a setting issue. So I'm sure you have already, but definitely double check every setting in the app, the phone, and on AOL.

As far as the driving mode is concerned, go to settings, language and input, text-to-speech output and then touch the driving mode line, and then it will give you a list of things to select to enable or disable to hear.
