Siri won't read texts
When I have a new text message and Siri to read it all she does is tell me I have a message from.... and then she asks if I want to reply or read again. If I choose read again, she does the same thing.
Any one else have this problem?
Any settings or ideas on what I can try?

Ok, looked at all the posts in this thread so i decided to do some testing.
Here is what i can tell
With preview off, Siri can read the text if my phone is on (not on the lock screen)
She cannot read the message if i am in the lock screen.
With preview on, she can read if from both the on and lock screen, but that is kind of pointless since with the preview on, i can see the message as i grab the phone to ask for Siri's help.
Agreed, still beta and it will improve, but thought i would pass on what i am finding on my end.

When I upgraded to iOS5.0.1, and recd a tx yest while driving--I asked Siri to read it (from my lock screen) and all she did was tell me "you have a new tx msg from Jax" but then didn't read it. I was like WTF I know that featured worked before I've used it all the time.
This is when I found your post, and today when I recd a tx msg and unlocked my screen and asked her to read it she did with no problems. So I'm guessing that something between 5 and 5.0.1 changed, at least for me it did.
I don't like putting the preview on because I don't want to advertise my tx msgs so I guess il have to unlock and then ask Siri to read it.
So, tyvm for testing this outnand coming up with this info-- and sharing it with the rest of the class

OK: update to this. In case anyone in new & a little clueless like me being a first time iPhone owner and using Siri, lol, I got Siri to read my tx msgs even with my lock screen on. I went into "settings/notifications/messages" I turned "preview" ON, but I turned "view in lock screen" OFF.
And presto. Now as I'm driving I can have Siri read my txs without going thru slide to unlock first
