    Don't complain. At least you got 10. Siri only gave me 6 restaurants.

    Before they gave Siri the ability to know about Sports and Movies, and BEFORE they gave it the ability to open applications

    Why not give it the simple ability to READ INCOMING EMAILS???

    It can tell you how many you have, but it can't read it??

    Thats something simple.

    I don't have her read texts to me because the preview window for the lock screen needs to be on and I don't want people seeing who has texted me and what they say. Fix that and I'll be happy.

    Siri is nice sometimes, but is often wrong or delayed with searches due to my Sprint network.

    I use Siri to send texts, emails, make calls, read me messages when I'm at the gym. Very useful for me
    +1 on that and finding low prices on gas!

    But this is only a single example. I have never been able to send a text with Siri, and half the time my reminders are so off base that I don't save them because they aren't helpful.
    Texts and reminders are 2 things that Siri does well for me. I try to give Siri the least amount of words possible but enough to get the task done. For example:

    I find myself using Siri more and more - one of the handiest features is to ask "How's the traffic" while driving. it not only launches Google Maps with Show Traffic but it sizes the map just right so I can see my entire commute.

    I also use the feature to read incoming text messages - it actually works surprisingly well.

    I also figured out that if I use Siri with a headset it will read the reminder it created back to me instead of me having to look at it to confirm.

    They said that the secret to Siri is that it understands the context of what you're asking.

    Is that a lie? There's plenty of evidence that disproves it. Siri does not actually understand context.

    I disagree The simple answer is because it is their choice. Everyone will not use Siri in the same manner and Siri will not appeal to everyone or meet everyone's expectations so why have it enabled when you know you're never going to use it? You're assuming that the people who choose to not use Siri will change their minds later. Maybe they will. Still, it is their phone, their choice and their decision. Respect it.

    I don't see the logic in this. Having Siri enabled has no downfall that I can see in anyway, aside from inability to use Siri. You can't accidentally activate it, it doesn't drain power. Disabling it is nothing more than crippling the phone. HOW MUCH you cripple it depends on personal taste but you are undeniably disabling a feature. Most people on this thread seem to act like disabling Siri will make the folks at Apple say "guys, people aren't using Siri. Nooooooooooo!" Moreso than just not using Siri.

    Disabling Siri is an act of solace. To those who have used it, it compensates for the fact that it is not a complete product. Rather than be dragged along for updates, we'll forget about it until Apple re-releases it.

    The logic is this: It is not for us to decide whether or not individuals who own an iPhone 4S should disable Siri or any other function or feature. Whether or not we agree with their rationale is irrelevant. It is their device. Period! Personally, Siri works well for me and therefore, I keep it enabled, but that's not the case for everyone as noted in this thread. Anyway, thank you for your reply and I hope you're having a safe and pleasant weekend.

    Well guys Siri works really well for me. It gets better and better and will learn your accent more and more as you use it. It's accuracy has definitely improved for me over time.

    If you go to the settings menu to turn it off you get a warning basically stating that your Siri related data is stored on Apples servers and is used to make it work and improve over time. If you switch it offer the data associated to you is erased.

    By turning it off you are going back to square one. Surely better to leave it on and use it where you can knowing that with each use it's getting better and better.

    Siri knows just fine what 'she' is doing. It is you that doesn't know how to ask for what you want.

    Those who have iPhone 4S with Siri disabled, are you waiting for something?

    What's the problem, why do you have it disabled?

    I'm trying to decide if I'd be okay with disabling Siri until the full product is released.
    Siri Is being disabled by many be causes it simply isn't cutting it.
    I like many have a service provider who doesn't provide the best reception. let me tell you it gets very annoying when Siri doesn't work properly.

    This could be one of the most asinine things i have ever read. Not advanced at all? Considering there are NO (zero, none, zilch, nada) other companies using digital assistants that are even on the level of Siri shows one thing, that it IS advanced (and considering that it is a very adaptable learning software, it will continue to advance, which is odd for the kind of market that it is in, where most of the companies who control such things would rather you buy a new device with said advancements over furthering the software itself on the older devices until they are simply unable to keep up with the process itself).

    I know a lot of people who don't use Siri, my wife is one...she just doesn't have a use for it (but has admitted that she looks forward to when it is more relevant to what she does that it would make easier). It's just not very useful for some people (i happen to use it quite a bit personally, but i may be the majority). Saying the program isn't advanced though is, to be blunt, dumb. It's incredibly advanced, and continues to grow day by day.

    Just putting it out there, but your "frustration" with Siri seems awfully dramatic.

    What you just said is hogwash.

    Look at this poor girl trying to "talk" to Siri.





    No matter what the girl says, with Siri it just does not compute. It had no comprehension of what was said. It's sad.

    "Siri" is voice control. It does not "think" it does not "understand" It is not a "virtual assistant." You say a keyword, it activates an app. That's all it does. And that's all it will ever do.

    The very thing that would have made Siri interesting is the only thing that the program does not have. So, in essence. Siri is a lie.

    I don't know what your definition of advanced is, but there's nothing special about Siri.

    What happened to that "natural speech" they were talking about?



    Keywords activate apps. It's voice control. Except that it makes you talk more.

    I mean, why say what will the weather be like today, when all it hears is, "Weather" ...?? LOL

    Seriously though, only a dumb person would use Siri.
