Problems with Siri
I am having some issues with Siri. Last night I was getting the "cannot connect to network" message that has been going around and today it's just not working at all... I'll open Siri, give it a command and the icon will swirl around until the screen goes black. Is anyone else having similar problems?

If you are getting the constant, "I can't connect to the network" with Siri, try this. Dial *228 then when prompted choose option 1. After a few second you will hear, "Update complete". Hang up and try Siri again. This fix also works on texts where the headers are phone numbers instead of your contacts name. Hope this helps. Verizon only.

Siri has worked ~80% of the time for me today. It is going to be extremely helpful for daily use. I suspect the network issues are simply because millions of people are asking her if she knows HAL 9000. Things should settle down in a week or so. Hopefully.

Siri seems to be working fine in the UK.... however, does anyone know if Apple intend on making siri able to look up businesses in the uk? oh and able to access maps in the uk? oh and give directions in the UK?.... at the moment it will only access these things in the USA.

I've actually had good luck with Siri over the weekend. This morning, however, she's having a tough time connecting to the network. Although Apple has tagged this as beta, I doubt they want these issues to persist. People are excited about Siri and it's very impressive when you demo it to others...but it's gotta have network access! If it fails too often, the tidal wave of excitement will not get a chance to build up.

This is a major fail on Apples end if they dont resolve this soon.

Siri hasn't worked over 3G for two days now. Today iMessage stopped working and no websites are loading over 3G as well.
so much for the "it just works" philosophy.
I am still happy with the phone overall though and I know it will be amazing once they get the kinks worked out, its just so disheartening to have it not work again and again.
