I don't have a 4s, but I've never been able to get into voice dialing even!?
Maybe when I get the S that'll change. I remember holding off on an iPhone period because there was no keyboard ... What crack pipe was I smokin'?! .

I'm the same and so is my wife, we're in Australia so that might have something to do with it but I think she's pretty much a waste of time.

I use Siri all the time. Reading, writing texts. Setting up reminders, making and editing notes, getting directions (navacon), toggling Bluetooth, wifi, flashlight etc...
I'd be lost if I couldn't talk to my phone.

I use Siri for reminders. The few times I've tried using it to send a text while driving I've gotten so frustrated I could have just as easily been texting. The whole idea is to to not take your mind off the road.

I still use Siri and it is very helpful. As I stated in another thread, I use if primarily to text & respond to text messages while driving, set reminders, look up information and to dial contacts for me. I have never asked it frivolous questions and it did not factor in to my reason for buying my iPhone 4S. Could it be better? Heck yeah. Do I depend on it? Absolutely not. I've had a smartphone or a PDA phone for so long and I'm so used to doing things manually that I forget about Siri sometimes.

I have to say, back in Nov when I first got my 4S, I used Siri mainly for answering a text while driving & I did factor in the 'Siri effect' as part of my reason for purchasing my 4S, switching from a bb. But, now having my phone for just over 5 mths I can honestly say I don't use Siri really at all anymore. If I use it once MAYBE twice a month now.....that's a lot. I just may switch the button to OFF one of these days myself.....

I would totally be lying if I said I use Siri. Lol she's okay when needed but just isn't that good! What I do want is the voice diction to become more accurate. 64GB iPhone 6+ 32GB iPhone 5S 64GB iPad 3 LTE 15" MacBook Pro 2.8GHz 21" iMac 2.9GHz i5

I use Siri everyday and every time Siri comes up I can't help thinking 3 things:
1. Why didn't we have this 10 years ago?
2. Why isn't this better? (Can't launch apps or modify settings)
3. How do people still "type" messages, it feels so archaic to type in 2012.
It's great for reminders and meetings. Sending texts, timers for cooking or whatever it is you are doing. Why type???? I just don't get it besides being in an environment where you it wouldn't be appropriate to speak.

I rarely use Siri, except in circumstances where it is convenient. For example:
- In a private place where I can dictate emails and text messages
- Wish to add a Calendar event (much quicker than manually adding)
Siri will be much more useful to me when I can adjust Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other settings with a simple voice command. I also have the problem where I live in the UK and location services still do not function.
