    Default Siri and iMessage

    Does Siri work with iMessaging? My girlfriend has an wifi iPad 2 with ios 5 and a cheap cell phone. How can I get Siri to send iMessage to her iPad and not send a text message to her phone. When I tell Siri to iMessase my girlfriend it sets it up as a text to her phone.

    If she has iMessage set up on her iPad with the same email as her phone, you shouldn't have to choose where to send her message.

    You have to message her at her iCloud email address not her phone number. For Siri, the easiest way is to set up a second contact in your address book with a slightly different name.

    Siri has a little trouble with some names too. My son is "Nick" and Siri keeps telling me that she can't find "Neck" - so I thought it would be Nicholas, but Siri thinks Necklace..argh..lol...!
    A GOAL without a PLAN is only a WISH.

    Must be your pronunciation. Siri has no problem finding Nick in my address book...
