    What do you use Siri for most often? I know there's some people who basically never use Siri, but many of us do on a daily basis. Just wondering what people's most commonly used Siri command/task is. If anything, because maybe I want to start using Siri for the same reason and just don't know it yet!

    Mine is "set timer for 4 minutes"... the amount of time it takes my French press coffee to brew

    Command wise? I would say its to remind me about various things. And to send the occasional message.

    What do I mostly do? Try and stump her with various math calculations, courtesy of my buddy in physics.

    I usually set my alarm, since I have to get up at a different time everyday of the week

    and i'm curious, does Siri come back with the correct calculations?

    IF i even use Siri anymore these days, its to read me a tx msg if i'm driving or set a reminder. I use to use Siri a good bit in the beginning and i thought i would always 'rely' on it, but now its just on occassion.
    I guess in this aspect i'm just so acustomed to roll 'old school' that i type in what i need for calendar appts and what not.

    I use Siri mostly while I'm driving to either call a contact, read a text message that I received and/or reply to a text message. Sometimes I use it to locate a store or an address. I have never gotten caught up in the Siri hype and it was not an issue when I opted to buy the 4S, but I am grateful that I have it. It does indeed have its uses.

    Setting alarms and calling people via Bluetooth speaker while driving. That's pretty much it with Siri.

    I use Siri all the time. Timers, reminders, make phone calls, text people, and definitely to listen to my music... My son, uses it to help him with his homework.

    I learned about the keyword early on, and that is all I have to say to Siri.

    "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.

    Normally setting the timer for cooking purposes or sending my wife a message when I'm stuck in traffic. The former works reliably. The latter, eh.

    Other than asking her stupid stuff and amusing myself with her answers, I use her a lot to compose text messages and set alarms and reminders.
