    For me, it's just setting the alarm at 7AM. For some reason, Siri always fails me whenever I try to dish out commands when I'm trying to show off in front of my non-iphone using friends.

    Personal questions "What are you doing?" "Why" even though I never get any actual answers.


    I don't consider the personal questions silly. I really want Siri to know more about me. What I do, why I do it, when I do it, and who I'm doing it with.

    Siri, make me a sandwich.

    PS: It never works, pretty sure my Siri is busted.

    Timers & Alarms... Great for parking meters.

    Once you name your alarms, you can turn on/off or change by name, ie: change my wake up alarm to 9am... turn on my siesta alarm...

    Weather forecasts, current conditions, current wind speed. Initiating internet searches. What time is it in [where ever]. What day does [any major holiday] fall on this year, or, in a particular year.

    Texting is great, and extremely accurate -- holding the phone to your ear makes it seem like you're talking on the phone.

    Overall, very useful, though I'm barely scratching the surface of what all Siri can do: More Fun With Siri Dictation Jim Rhoades / Crush Apps

    "Call my wife"

    -OK, calling Mike McGuinness

    "NO"

    "Call my wife"

    -OK, calling Mike O'Neill

    "NO NO NO"

    "Call My Wife"

    - I'm sorry, I can't find 'Papa Murphy's Pizza." Would you like me to search the web?

    "NO!!!!!"

    "Call my wife"

    -Ok, calling James Blake

    "NO!"

    Then I reach over and manually dial the number.

    That's my most common Siri command (manually doing whatever it is that she was unable to do).

    Occasionally, Siri actually works, and that's a cool novelty.
    ROFC. I have a love/hate relationship w/ Siri. So days she's a pain in my a$$ & other days are great. Although I'm from Oklahoma & live in Tennessee....I know I don't twang y'all .

    I love it when I tell Siri to "call mom" and it replies with "what Burger King do you want me to call"

    Mainly use Siri to turn on and off wifi, change the brightness and open apps. I also use it to check the weather and time overseas. I have it read my texts and call people too.

    Sherlock, I just tried this at my house.
    I manually turned off Wi-Fi in Settings.
    I asked Siri to "turn on Wi-Fi".
    And she told me she couldn't find any hotspots.

    Same reply when I asked to turn it off.

    Any clues

    The man is using a jailbroken device. There are a bunch of tweaks to enhance Siri's functionality.

    I jailbroke and am using MyAssistant. Siritoggles also works. For years I was stock and now it's amazing I can pretty much do anything I can imagine or need my phone to do. I only use things that add functionality and diminish annoyances...

    Set an 'appointment or reminder' with 'call my wife' a close second.

    Timers, reminders, texts like most everyone else said . . .

    Still get laughs on what to do with a dead body.

    Also helps with kid's homework.

    One I didn't see mentioned that I use frequently is "Hows the traffic" it launches Google Maps and shows traffic.
