    Ok...Siri is a great concept and it's wonderful the 40% of the time that it can actually "connect to the network". What about the other 60%? I've tried using Siri on multiple occasions in different cities/ states only to hear the same response- "Sorry, I can't connect to the network right now". I'd rather have her say "Hey, go $&@? yourself, I'm busy." At least that would make me laugh.

    Today was the last straw- I attempted to demonstrate the benefit of Siri to an Android using buddy of mine only to be laughed at when she couldn't connect...multiple times.

    My 2 cents- Siri = Fail until it has reliable network connectivity and uptime greater than what it is now.

    A thought crossed my mind today when I got the "can't connect" response... What would 4s people do if Apple tanked Siri? Granted, there is zero chance. But what if they did?

    Siri has been unable to connect to the network for a couple of days here in L.A. At least she apologizes sometimes.

    My guess is that a lot of people would "tank"their 4S and wait for the 5.

    Over the last 3 weeks, 98% of the time I have been able to connect to the network here in the NYC area-the city itself and the burbs.

    I wonder for those of you having problems, does it make any difference which carrier you are on? or is it the location.

    I have verizon.

    Although I do like Siri and use it a lot during the day, I still love the new 4S and would keep it even without Siri.

    Siri is down for me in upstate NY. Ou have to expect it to go down sometimes right now, it's only in beta. Once it's out of beta and the kinks are worked out of it, it'll go down much less. I'm just happy that the dictation app still works even when Siri is down.

    Valid question for sure. I'm on VZW. It hasn't worked in NJ, CO, IL, ND, SD or CA at various times over the past two weeks; via WiFi or 3G. Really bad today so I would assume that the problem is wide spread.

    Really hope this is fixed soon...Siri is great when it's functional.

    Just got my 4s today and Siri has only worked twice out of the multiple times I've tried to use her. I wonder if she's down today because a lot of people got their new iPhones today, today/tomorrow is 'ship by' date for a lot of phone. Lots of new phones getting powered up today I think.

    This... stopped into the Apple Store because I was in the mall for something else and they had just gotten a shipment of AT&T phones so safe to say it was pretty crowded and a lot of activations were going on.

    Yes, I made the mistake of going to my local Verizon store because my contacts wouldn't transfer over from my old Storm. They were packed, at 2pm on a Thursday. Seemed like everyone had an iPhone in their hand.

    What I don't like is Siri has to connect to a network even to call a contact. Yet if I go to my phone app and hit the number I can call. It should be able to call a contact without connecting to a network

    I agree! Same thing for setting an alarm! Why should Siri have to contact anyone to set an alarm on my phone? This needs to be fixed!

    I am really disappointed here. Siri was their big selling point on this phone, but I can't get access to the NETWORK.

    Hopefully iOS 5.0.1 will fix the issues that some people are having with Siri. I've been impressed with how well Siri works on my 4S so far.

    Siri is still in beta! There are still bugs to work out. Once it's out of beta I'm sure it will be much better.
