    You may be able to if you jailbreak.

    Otherwise, no.

    I think it needs the new A5 chip to run properly.

    I just read an article where two known jailbreakers looked into it.
    (iH8snow and someone else).
    They say it will not work on the iP4.

    My understanding is that Siri will be in beta for the 4S and will not work for the 4. To my knowledge, Apple hasn't said that Siri will not be available for the 4 once it comes out of beta.

    I hope it eventually works on the 4, since it's a really cool feature, but it's not enough to make me want to upgrade to the 4S right away. I'll wait, and if it means waiting out my contract until the actual 5 comes out and not having Siri, then so be it.

    I still have the Siri app and it no longer works. It comes back and tells you "Retrieval Failed" Siri could not download the required information from the server.

    So my guess is its only going to be iPhone4s

    So it did work on the iphone 4 when it was an app, and now it doesn't? That just doesn't seem right. I would like to try it, but i'm not near an upgrade time yet.

    according to ih8sn0w, and his screenshots, the "groundwork" for Siri exists on his iPod Touch he's using as a demo, but until the 4S software is released, they won't know if they'll be able to move the app's files to units other than the 4S to determine if its really a matter of hardware or software.

    fingers crossed!

    I doubt that the lack of Siri on the iPhone 4 is really a hardware issue. It is probably a product differentiator for the 4S. That is only a guess.

    Honestly, Siri is the only thing available on the iPhone 4s that I'm semi-interested in using. But, it's cool to know there are other apps really similar to it. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Dragon Go seems to work well on my iPhone 4.

    However, any non-iPhone 4S will suffer because Siri is activated but the home button, whereas any app has to be actually running.

    I totally agree. Let's hope for the best

    If there's a way, I have no doubt that the jailbreaking people will find it. And if it's possible cool, I'm just still too paranoid to actually try jailbreaking my phone haha. I just had to get a replacement for another issue so I just don't want to push my luck. Having to go without the iPhone for a few days was not fun.

    The keynote pitched Siri as a iPhone 4S feature only.

    I think the point people are trying to make is that just because a company says something is only available on a specific product, doesn't mean others might not try to find a way around it. We can't forget that features very similar to what iOS 5 is offering have been available to the jailbreak community for a long time now.

    I think it'll be like when the 3GS came out. 3G didn't get multitasking. But when jailbreaking the 3G you could add that and folders. Multitasking on the 3G ran pretty sluggish though so if they get Siri to work on the 4 I'm afraid it'll be sluggish and not work exactly how it's meant to be.

    That would be one of my biggest fears as well. I guess my belief has always been just because something can be done, doesn't mean it will work just as well. If someone really wanted Siri though, I imagine sluggish performance won't matter to them as much as it would me but I guess time will have to tell.

    Fair enough, I just don't see Siri being possible on the iPhone 4 that's all. Really cool things happen with the jailbreaking though for sure.

    You can wish in one hand, and want Siri to work on an iP4 in the other - and all you're gonna end up with is a hand full of wish.

    I've done some research into this - and as has been noted above, some in the JB community have indeed tried to force Siri onto an iP4. Guess what... it doesn't work. Sometimes, they say something is only available on a specific product because that's the way it is.
    paul-c and ladyc0524 like this.

    Well Siri must, Becuase I used to have an original droid and it could run the voice commands well, so I do not see why you need an iPhone 4S.
