    Default Voice to text and Siri not working

    Anyone finding that Siri is not responding or voice to type isn't either? Wonder if it's a Verizon thing right now. I did reboot it but still taking forever to respond to my voice

    Siri is not working for me either...I'm on AT&T. This is what Siri responds with...

    "I'm really sorry about this, but I can't take any requests right now. Please try again in a little while."

    so is it just not working on jail broken devices? I wonder if Apple finally is putting its foot down and starting to brick features on those devices. My 4S is jail-broke and both Siri, and speech to text are down

    It's not the jailbreak that's causing the issue...mine is jailbroken but my wife's is not, and hers is having the same problems.

    I reset my network settings and I'm still having the problem.

    Im on Sprint and mine's down too. I didn't realize you need an Internet connection for simple voice texting.

    My wife's been having intermittent problems with her vioce to text and I had a problem only once. I did have something else strange happen today. While I was sending a text my phone completely froze and shut off then rebooted.
    We both have the 4s on at&t and neither of us are jailbroken.

    Since this is a problem on not just one carrier is it an Apple server issue?

    My Wife was always on Verizon and always had a Blackberry with no issues. I finally after about a year was able to convince her to switch to at&t and get the 4s. Now she thinks the phone sucks and thinks at&t sucks. Try telling a woman who knows everything that she is wrong. lol

    any input on what the issue is?

    Neither Siri nor dictation are working for my iPhone 4S (AT&T). It's not jailbroken. I've seen sporadic reports of Siri/dictation not working on Twitter and Apple's message boards. It's likely a server problem. I'm getting nothing for dictation and "uh oh there's a problem" or "I didn't get that" for Siri.

    Reseting settings causes the phone to grab a new server token for Siri (and possible dictation as well). That's probably hit or miss depending on whether the phone grabs a token for a good or bad server.

    I'm assuming the problems are related to upgrades being done for the release of iOS 6.

    Edit:

    It's being reported on TechCrunch now.

    I don't understand why even if I try the voice input on iMessage or WhatsApp it still doesn't work. I too didn't realize that any voice input requires data/server connection.

    Siri and voice recognition have been out for me for most of the day. This is the first time this has happened since having my iPhone. I wonder how long its going to last. Hopefully not too long.

    No wonder I couldn't dictate voice to text yesterday! I haven't tried today.
