Siri not working in Beta 3
Don't seem to have Siri in beta 3. It activates you say a command but then the purple circle just spins for ages the command doesn't register and Siri then says sorry I'm not available at the moment please try later.
Anyone else got this???

So my Siri is still not working it's been down for a couple of days now. Judging by this thread this seems to be a widespread beta 3 issue. My missis is on regular iOS 5 and her Siri works without issue... So frustrating. I use it all the time grrrr
I hope it's not like this all the way until beta 4

It certainly looks like an iOS 6 Beta 3 issue, but it doesn't affect all devices. Case in point, my iPhone has the same spinning circle with no results, and has been that way for days now. My iPad, which is also running beta 3, works just fine. So, whatever it is, it's a bit random. Hopefully Apple will fix it and turn around a quick beta 3.1 update.

I wonder of the issue is location based as in working in the states but not in the UK?
I'm tempted to try turning siri off and on again to see if that works but I'm worried Siri will lose all the data it's collected over then time I've used it. Its accuracy improved loads with time. I'm loathed to go back to square one again.
Perhaps best to wait for beta 4 what do you guys think? Has anyone tried the above? Did it work?

Listened to Rush today... he's an Apple fanatic, running the betas on all his toys... one of his iPhones has had issues with Siri/dictation... caller told him to try turning off Siri in settings and rebooting the phone and turn Siri on again... failing that - resetting network settings... last resort: reinstall the beta iOS.

Wow. Feel free to jump on me for my poor memory on Apple not doing .1 betas. I've run the majority of them since iOS 4, but I forgot that detail. Feel better now?
Also, I realize that this isn't for everyday use, and accepted the risks when I installed it. I was just looking for other users experiencing the same thing, not judgement. Anyway, I have my reasons. I am a writer elsewhere, and always want to keep up with what's coming next. Legitimately, of course. iOS6 is such a minor update that I had very few issues with betas 1 or 2. Normally, I haven't put betas on my iPhone, but it ran so well on my iPad, that I decided to try it out to get a look at Maps. My iPad is a WiFi model, so no GPS there.
As for troubleshooting, I have turned Siri on and off a few times, and reset the network settings. The network reset got Personal Hotspot working again, which I was also having issues with in beta 3. I may try the restore before long, because I use Siri a lot in the car. I've just been putting it off because I am busy with work and it takes forever.
So, just because every user on the board doesn't have this issue doesn't mean there isn't a bug in the latest beta. If you search Google, there are other reports out there. Now, for the naysayers, there shouldn't be any widespread reports of anything in iOS 6, because if you are running the beta, you are technically under NDA. I've kept my posting here brief, and disclosed very little, just in the attempt to swap info with other beta users having the same problem.
Thanks a lot for the benefit of the doubt.

BadElf - a GPS receiver that plugs into the iPad 30 pin port - gives you a fully functional stand alone Personal Navigation Device.
Garmin GLO - a bluetooth GPS receiver that will work with iDevices and uses not only US-GPS satellites, it also uses Russian GLONASS.
