Siri not working!!!!

I got my iphone 4s last Friday, Siri worked fine for two days, but since then she just responds she can't take any request right now. I have tried all the suggestions I have found online....Disappointing! Any suggestions?

SIRI goes down from time to time.... You just have to wait till it gets back up.

 

Its in beta so It's a work in progress.

Also - Apple Support boards would be a good place to follow up on this

Is Siri usually that unreliable? It's such a neat feature that would be awesome to witness when it does work correctly.

The data center(s) running the backend are really not anywhere near up to meeting the load. Which is one of the reasons why Siri isn't available on ALL iOS5 devices.

If Apple tweaked the software some more and made Siri more reliable, it would be very, very cool to use. It still is, but if it worked every time there is an active wireless connection, that would be even better.

I don't have any real problems with using Siri. 98% of the time I go to use Siri it's up and working and I use it quite a bit.

Well if you "don't have any real problems with using Siri", then I guess you shouldn't have posted the following in your earlier post in this thread:

 

"It hasn't been working at all for me today."

 

Now I know you implied that Siri doesn't work for you 2% of the time--that's not what I'm nitpicking about; it's where you said that you don't have any "real" problems, yet admitted that previously it wasn't "working at all" on a previous day.  How is "not working at all" not considered a "real" problem in your mind?  Or, what would you consider as a "real" problem when it comes to using Siri?

{please keep it courteous} Just because something is not working one day, I wouldn't consider that a "real problem"! Since purchasing 2 4S's a month or so ago, we have had very little problems using Siri except for it being out for that one day but I thought the posts could have been understood by a 5 year old but...

If you consider a one-day outage not to be a "real" problem...then why even bother letting other folks know that you had a problem that you wouldn't consider "real" to begin with?  I mean, I don't typically go around telling folks about problems that I wouldn't consider "real" and thus not even worth mentioning about but hey, I guess different strokes for different folks...even if they're 5-year olds.

considering itis still labeled as beta software a one day outage is not a big issue. just preception.

Maybe you should go back and re-read this who thread. I wasn't the OP, I was just contributing my experience. If you don't like what I had to say than just keep on reading. We've had our 4S's for more than 45 days. So having it not work for 1 of those days(which is about 2%), to me, is not a real problem. I unlike some people expect things to work 100% of the time. I understand that there are outages and problems, especially seeing that this is only a beta!

Really? Arguing over something so simple? Picking out sentences that seem to contradict each other in the very slightest of ways? C'mon, now...

If you have something non-productive to say, might as well not mention it.

It sure does go down a lot during this beta phase -- I just wish that when it did go down, you could still do the basic voice commands -- the ones you could do before Siri, like dialing, time-check, etc.

For me it doesn't work MOST of the time.  I for one would like to have my Microsoft Voice Command or something like it for my iPhone 4s.  It wasn't as flashy and neat as Siri (when siri works), but while driving it would always make hands free phone calls for me.  That is more important to me than the other stuff siri will do if it works.  (should have stayed with microsoft phone).  If something doesn't improve this will be the last apple product I will Buy!Smiley Sad

You know what I find a bit amusing?  It almost seems as if more than a few folks are insinuating that we should cut Apple a little slack because after all, they did state that Siri is beta software.  However, if it were beta software running on any other non-Apple device and/or OS and was showing growing pains...Apple fanboys would probably be all over those manufacturers/devices in a heartbeat.
