My local Verizon store opened at 8am this morning. I got in line at 6:30am and there were only two guys ahead of me. They opened the store about ten minutes early and by 8:05 I was heading out the door with my new 4S.
Siri worked great all morning, really fast and very, very cool. This afternoon it has been painfully slow, and many times I get the "I am having trouble connecting to the network" message. I am assuming that it must be because everyone that pre-ordered got their phone today, along with a lot of folks picking them up in the stores. I am hoping that it will improve over time, either through more capacity, or not so many folks playing with it at the same time. The rest of the phone is pretty cool, but if Siri doesn't end up working much better my phone will be going back to Verizon before 30 days is up.

My Siri was giving me trouble around the same time. I'm pretty sure it's just all the people using it at once. But this is a feature that people will probably use most of the time that they're using the phone so they better invest in servers and hardware and get it ready for permanent overtime!
Other than that little 30 minute period of malfunctioning Siri has been all that I could hope for! I told her that I love here and she said, "You don't even know me!" My son was on the floor crying because he was laughing so hard!

Me: Do you love me?
Siri: I'm not allowed to.
Me: What's your favorite color?
Siri: My favorit color is... well, I don't know how to say it in your language. It's sort of greenish, but with more dimensions.
Me: Will you marry me?
Siri: We hardly know one another.
Me: What's the meaning of life?
Siri: I can't answer that now, but give me some time to write a very long play in which nothing happens.
Me: Am I pretty?
Siri: I would prefer not to say.
Me: Do you like me?
Siri: This is about you, Leanna, not me.
Me. I love you.
Siri: You are the wind beneath my wings.

I think my Siri is f-ing brain dead. Everything I ask her, she says "I'm not sure what you mean by that". I'm just asking her to regular stuff like play a song. How do you guys get your Siri to respond to you?
FYI: I just noticed that when I took my Otterbox off my phone it understands me. I guess maybe because is an Otterbox for the iPhone 4 maybe it was covering up something? Also, did anyone notice if you tell Siri relationships, it puts them under your name in contacts under weird catagories? My daughter is now listed under "manager" and my mom is listed under "spouse".

I think Apple's servers were getting slammed. When I first tried it, it was really slow and unresponsive. I thought it might be because my apps and media were still getting synced over, but even once that completed it was still slow, and totally failing half the time. Now it's working perfectly, instantaneous replies, always transcribes my speech perfectly, and almost always knows what I'm asking. Try asking Siri her favorite color, btw.

My wife and I are both on our new iPhone 4S in the same house standing next to each other. Siri is working every time for me, I'm not seeing any issue. When my wife tries Siri or I try Siri on her iPhone 4S, Siri says "Having trouble connecting to Network". When she uses my iPhone 4S it works. So doesn't seem to be a connection issue, or a heavy usage issue.

I've found after using Siri for about 14 hours now. That sometimes Siri can't connect. And sometimes it is lagging. Wonder if its because of the amount of current users right now that makes it lag. 8AM this morning Siri was fast and responsive but later in the day Siri got slower

I think Siri is hilarious!! Conversation from earlier:
Me: Are you married?
Siri: We were talking about you, not me.
Me: Am I pretty?
Siri: No comment.
Me: You should say yes.
Siri: I'll make a note of that
Me: How old are you?
Siri: I don't see why that should matter, *insert my name here*
Me: Why not?
Siri: You see things, and you say "Why?" But I dream things that never were, and I say, "Why not?"
Me: That's deep.
Siri: Anything else I can do for you?
