Have used it for a few hours and so far i'm not blown away by it. Think its great for pointless questions in an attempt to get humorous answers, ask it a real question and its mixed results. I live in the uk and it turns out siri isnt able to give directions or maps in the uk... or so it told me.... dont remember reading that on any Apple advertising in the uk!!! I'm an avid Apple fan and i hope it will improve over time but so far i think its not much better than a cheap app. Think the reminders app is great though, simple, clean, and combines well using the GPS

Hey me too. Anyone else getting nothing but errors right now? I was hoping it wasn't just me.
Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that whichever jail breaker that was ported Siri onto their iPhone 4. Maybe Apple is retaliating and editing the server(s).

Fixing Siri on Verizon
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.

okay does anyone else have this problem:
using siri, if you get a notification it comes in at speaker-busting speakerphone volume while Siri is open, upon closing Siri the sound is still amplified (keyboard clicks, etc), I've found flipping the phone to vibrate and back clears the issue, I'm just afraid it's going to blow my speaker

I'm not very impressed with Siri so far. For the past 2 days all I get when I ask a question is "Sorry, I am having trouble connecting to the network". Siri works for a short period of time after I reset my network settings, but that is it. I sure hope the overload clears up soon....

I don't have any server issues and response is quick. Can someone point me out to some tutorials on how to properly use it? For example I told Siri to remind me to stop at Kwik Trip when I left home and she responded by telling me she doesn't know where I live. How do I set stuff like that up?

Also if you would like it to remind you when you get somewhere, like say Kwik Trip, then you would need to add Kwik Trip to your contacts and set the address.
Thats the only bad part right now with it.. Hopefully they will change that and you can manually just tell it an address or something

Another great feature of Siri is that it is essentially free 411. Just ask it for the phone number of any local business, and it will bring up the information. You can even place the call or get directions directly from Siri. Say goodbye to phonebooks. This is a disruptive feature. I love it.

It was surprising to see how dependent I had become on it though lol I don't want to have to thumb-type messages out on the move any more.
