I used to use siri a lot to dictate txt messages and ever since updating to ios6 the mic is greyed out.

Siri is still on and I can use her from the main menu or for other things but I cant dictate txt messages.

I can use it to search in safari to dictate my search.

Anyone have a fix for this? I have an 4s on vzw. Non jailbreak.

Can you post a screenshot. USing your iPhone, simultaneously press the home button & power to take a screenshot.

Main Menu? I'm not sure I understand.

I have an iPhone 4S running iOS 6 and, like you, I am on the Verizon network. Here is a screenshot of my message screen, but my mic is not greyed out. The second photo shows the dictation is awaiting my feedback. Am I misunderstanding your post? If so, please clarify.

Same thing happened to me. Just turned the phone off and back on again. Haven't had any issues with that since.
