    I have seen the commercials where someone sets a reminder for Siri to tell him something when he leaves work. Well? How does Siri know that? I tried telling it when I leave work and it just says "ok". Anyone help me out here?

    No, you need to setup a contact for yourself and add your work address by typing it in or when you are at work use the gps to make it your work location under that contact you setup for yourself.

    if you are at work...you can also just say "remind me to xxxx when i leave here"

    works for wherever you are.

    you also have to turn on location for reminders as well......for me I can set one manually and have it work but I have not gotten Siri to do it.

    Siri will create the reminder but she does not set it as a location based reminder.

    Ok, I'm sorry if I'm being thick here.. But I added my work address into my self contact. I then told Siri what time I leave work and it just says "ok" again.

    maybe what will happen is , siri will pick up via gps, when I am driving away from my work address and then remind me??

    That's the idea yes, when the GPS detects that you are leaving it will give you the reminder.

    I need something to remind me to set reminders. I have a set 5 things that I bring with me when I leave the house.... If I have to add something new, something old must be left behind.... And that gets inconvenient.

    Yup, it's still in Beta. I don't know if it reports its own bugs, so how could we help it improve?

    Errrrr... With even being someone with ADD, I'm quite sure I don't need a reminder when I'm leaving work that I'm actually leaving work.....

    I can see where it would be useful if you needed to go to, maybe the bank or grocery store after work and may forget. I've done it many times.

    So if the reminder is to take care of something on the way home, that makes more sense. Ooooo.. that reminds me....

    are you syncing your contacts with something like gmail? you have to have a contact file of yourself with all the relationships in it and gmail and things dont have the space to hold that information to it removes it..

    The way I found best to work it was to create a contact for myself with the iCloud. I couldn't get relationships etc to work when I was using a google synced contact there wasn't the fields in googles contacts.

    That is an awesome feature. Now all you have to do is enter address contact information for the gym, your favorite grocery stores, etc. ;-)
