SIRI SHOULD NOT BE PORTED TO THE IPHONE 4!! Do you have any idea how large the jailbreak community is?! The added weight of all those users will bring Siri to her knees. And why should people who won't buy the 4S have the right to do that?! This forum has a zero tolerance policy for those who want to talk about adding stolen apps through Jailbreaking. Why is this any different?! To get Siri you pay for the 4S. That's how you buy Siri. This IS stealing. If we can't share information on stolen apps then why is this even in the forums?! Do we speak for thieves now?! Do we help them to move their stolen product? I'm sure that Steve Jobs really would appreciate this! The price of he 4S includes payment for the use of Siri. It's not fair for criminals to be rewarded with the free use of what I gladly spent money to have.
Of course this is my opinion. Feel free to add your own. I'm sure that you will anyway! LOL

Every 4S sold includes a license fee for the Nuance software included with Siri. Even if you somehow think that stealing Siri from Apple is OK, you are also stealing from
Nuance if you install Siri on an iPhone 4.
Sad how many people seem to think its ok to do this.
As a developer, it makes me even more determined to thwart the jail break community who always scream they are not pirates or thieves... Right.

My understanding is on Siri that even though it can be ported over to the iphone 4, in order to work it must communicate with Apple's servers. Which is why we have gotten siri outage issues, apple servers have been getting hit hard on Siri usage as it is. It has been stated that Apple will probably block Siri by doing a serial number/hardware check when it connects to their servers so that it can force people to buy the 4s(which is their right).
Now there is one guy who has claimed about 4-5 days ago he got Siri to work on the iphone 4 without jailbreaking it, but he has yet to post any proof and it seems more like him blowing smoke at best.

All discussion of pirating/jailbreaking aside—and they are absolutely NOT synonymous—I'm guessing the Siri outages will die down soon; right now millions of people are playing with a new toy, but soon most will realize that using it in day to day life is not always practical and the server stress will abate.
I don't know if that guy got it to work but he should be taken for all that he has if he did. This is theft! How is it fair for those who have spent money on the 4S?! I'm not against the jailbreak community though. Just theft. I jailbreak and I pay for all of the apps that are not totally free but I've never installed a cracked or stolen app. I've even donated when I didn't have to because I thought that the developer deserved payment for the time that went into what he/she created.

Of course there are those that install cracked apps. There are thieves everywhere. But, I choose to believe that the majority are moral and pay for what they install.

I, too, disagree with how people are generalizing jailbreakers to be pirates. Even those people who developes jailbreaking tools are against pirating.
People jailbreak for many different reasons.... from the beginning when there were no unlocked iphones, the only way to be able to use an iphone was to jailbreak and unlock it with ultrasn0w to now where there are unlocked phones but you pay a hefty price or have to look to other countries to be able to get your hands on an unlocked iphone simply because the country they live in do no have carriers that carry iphones.
Some other people jailbreak so they can take full potential or modify their iphones to suit them the best. When apple does not really listen to consumers on their feedbacks, others step forward to fix the issues themselves. The whole notification system that the ios5 is sporting now came from jailbreakers who wrote tweaks and apps to modify the not very practical notification system that existed in ios4. Apps and tweaks like lockinfo, call bar, and missed notifications actually made one's ios4 look and work like ios5. Should apple be sued and take responsibility for integrating these functions into ios5 because these functions were made possible before ios5 came out? I don't think so either. I have a jailbroken iphone4 because of the above stated reasons and not because I jailbroke so I can get apps for free. With all the tweaks that I BOUGHT (yes you read right, I paid for them) on Cydia, the only reason I would consider upgrading to ios5 is only for iMessage and not for Siri.
I was a developer on bb so I know how bad it feels when someone just rips you off by getting their hands on something that you have invested time in for free.
Just my 2 cents.
