    Thats how apple decided to up the sales from the 4s, cause it would have nothing new without siri

  • anon

    then you’re an idiot

  • Dima6312

    It supports 3Gs and 4, 4S! Have fun!

  • Okikdok

    You’re missing quite a few commands.
    for Music: you can use “play playlist Driving Mix”
    for cabs: “i’m drunk”
    food: “i’m hungry”
    escorts: “i’m horny”
    more food: “find sushi restaurants” or “find sushi restaurants in New York”

    I would like to know where Siri finds this, because it won’t find any near my city.

  • Kira

    The reason it isn’t on the iPhone 4/3G is because it’s still in beta. Whilst it is damn good, they’re getting some feedback from the public beta. Once the beta period is over, it might be open to purchase (I seriously doubt they’ll give it away for free) for the iPhone 4/3GS.

    The iPhone 4S users get Siri ahead of time as a ‘treat’ for getting the ‘latest and greatest’ Apple product, after all wouldn’t you reward your clients for buying your latest products and give everyone an incentive above hardware to get the latest stuff.

    When you create a meeting you can also invite someone…..
    Setup a meeting for tomorrow at 3pm Dr. Summer Off and invite my wife

    Very useful, thanks!

  • Deickmang

    Hmmm the a5 duo core isn’t new for iPhones?

  • http://www.facebook.com/mikefas Michael Fasanello

    doesn’t work. it barely recognizes any of these commands. siri blows.

  • http://www.vanarsdalephoto.com tylerphotos

    You forgot:

    “I hate you.”
    “I love you.”
    “Tell me a story.”
    “Tell me a joke.”

  • Mike

    Excellent point Deickmang

  • Erik A.

    Dude, really? No problems here. Try speaking like a human being.

  • Robert B

    Then you are an idiot… I’ve been using the original Siri and 4S Siri and both work great.
    Sometimes when a tool doesn’t work, it’s not the tool that’s stupid!

  • Cmc

    For alarm clocks you can also tell Siri “show me all alarms”

  • V00d00ing

    i asked siri what is the meaning of life ?
    chocolate its says lol

  • BB

    I think it’s using Yelp.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=542851090 David Tozer

    Siri doesnt like when I ask it vulgar questions..

  • ranalynn

    Maybe you need to learn to speak proper English before you use Siri. She ROCKS!

  • Duane

    How about “restart” it resprings the phone.

  • Patrickwerduch

    Don’t use English US try another one and see if it works because it works great for me so it must be your accent

  • Healthyskin4you

    I’m trying to create a Grocery List. Later, I want to add to the list. I’ve tried saying “add to Grocery List” but that isn’t working. I also tried to create a Grocery List in Notes. There again, I have asked Siri to add to it but it isn’t working. What do I need to say?

  • Yourdad

    Ask it “who’s your daddy bitch” haha it actually says something funny.

  • Infected1d

    create grocery list note
    add (item) to grocery list note

  • Brodazofa

    Create a “grocery” list in your reminders. Once you set it up it’s as simple as saying “add soap to my grocery list”. Works beautifully. I have grocery, Costco, Walmart lists.

  • Brent

    Often times Siri does not understand a word. Does anyone know if you can spell the word and have her understand it Or just type it out As you spell It?
    I have tried it and it doesn’t seem to work.
    Also, as you can see when making edits editorial changes in the sentence it automatically capitalizes the word. Is there a way to turn this off? Or do you just have to say “no caps”
