    Hi i am trying to set up siri to remember my sisters name. This is what I told SIRI:

    Me - Jeraldine is my sister
    SIRI - OK, do you want me to remeber jeraldine is your sister?
    Me - Yes
    SIRI - OK Master, I've added this relationship

    but when I look at my contacts it saves her as either a manager or an assistant and not as my sister.

    Could any of you guys help, I am new to apple. Thank you.

    Go into your contact card, click on your sister, and change to your sister.

    Are you using Exchange for your contacts? If so, Exchange only recognizes Spouse and Manager relationships. You need to use iCloud or something else for your contacts if you want to add relationships other than spouse. I use Exchange, but also enabled iCloud contacts on my phone and added just one entry there, mine. Then I added all the relationships I wanted to that entry and under the Siri settings, selected the iCloud contact for My Info. Now I can tell Siri to create different relationships and they are added correctly.

    Now can someone else help me. Whenever i tell Siri to "Tell" someone a message Siri thinks i am 9/10 times saying "Call" and it starts to call someone. Any advice, or tips?

    Try this, have Siri to "send a message to", instead of tell. Hope that helps.

    Why do you think this is? I thought it was just my voice because my friend experienced less problems then i do with this. Its not a real big issue but i hope soon this will be fixed with a update.
