    I couldn't get this to work until I put the contact in as First: Bluetooth Last: Bluetooth (But I only have to say "Bluetooth," not "Bluetooth Bluetooth." I couldn't get it to work as Company or last name only. Pretty cool!

    I got both Bluetooth and WiFi to work just fine by using both just as first names. No issues, so far.

    It could also be how Siri understands you. The name is not the important thing. It is the URL.

    Call the items whatever you want. Call WiFi "Da Wifis" as long as Siri understands.

    prefs:root=AIRPLANE_MODE does get to switch mode into Airplane.

    Maybe there is deeper keys like General&path=Bluetooth&path=BLUETOOTH or General&path=Bluetooth&YES?

    Good Job. Awesome little hack. Until Apple makes this a real future, this is a nice solution.

    Siri isn't taking an action, it's launching a URL. The URL doesn't toggle the setting, just gets you to the page in that application.

    Check the Airplane url - it's actually turning iPhone in airplane mode. The thing is it's not a menu item, but just a root control.

    The shortcuts for Bluetooth and Brightness work fine. But the one for Wifi does not work at all.
    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Oh your issue is not with the URL, but with Siri. Just call the contact something different, like da wireless or anything else.

    For me, the three biggest settings that I need quick access to are Bluetooth, Brightness, and Wifi. The first two work fine with the above suggestions. The Wifi shortcut, not at all.

    Make sure it is exactly as I posted it. It works fine on all my iDevices.

    There is no urls for iTunes Wi-Fi Sync and Personal Hotspot? I've found "AirTraffic" and "WirelessModem" that in some variation should work, but either it doesn't work at all or I'm stupid

    This is simply awesome! You must be an Apple Genius

    These also work as bookmarks in safari for non SIRI phones. I wonder if there's a way to add a shortcut of one right to the home screen?

    Here I looked around the interwebz and got some of the common urls.

    Airplane Mode: prefs:root=AIRPLANE_MODE
    Wi-Fi: prefs:root=WIFI
    Location Services: prefs:root=LOCATION_SERVICES
    Sounds: prefs:root=Sounds
    Brightness: prefs:root=Brightness
    Wallpaper: prefs:root=Wallpaper
    General: prefs:root=General
    Twitter: prefs:root=TWITTER
    Phone: prefs:root=Phone
    FaceTime: prefs:root=FACETIME
    Safari: prefs:root=Safari
    About: prefs:root=General&path=About
    Usage: prefs:root=General&path=USAGE
    Siri: prefs:root=General&path=Assistant
    Network: prefs:root=General&path=Network
    Bluetooth: prefs:root=General&path=Bluetooth
    Auto-Lock: prefs:root=General&path=AUTOLOCK
    Date & Time: prefs:root=General&path=DATE_AND_TIME
    Keyboard: prefs:root=General&path=Keyboard
    International: prefs:root=General&path=INTERNATIONAL
    Accessibility: prefs:root=General&path=ACCESSIBILITY
    Reset: prefs:root=General&path=Reset
    Notifications: prefs:root=NOTIFICATIONS_ID
    Thanks for this. I'm having problems with the About shortcut.

    I have followed the instructions but when I say About to Siri, he says 'sorry I don't understand about'.

    But when I go into contacts and touch the shortcut that is in the home page field, it takes me to the About section of my iPhone no problem.

    What am I doing wrong?
