iPhone 4s arrived by mail today. Turned on Siri via Settings/General. Asking REALLY simple questions like "What is the weather?" and Siri has not responded ONCE with an answer other than:


"What was that again?"


"Sorry, something's gone wrong. Can you try that agan?"


"Sorry, I didn't get that."


"Uh oh. Something's wrong. Can you try again?"


SO frustrating and disappointing. The microphone doesn't seem like the problem, as it is able to record audio elsewhere.


Is anyone else experiencing this issue with Siri?

iPhone 4s, iOS 5, brand new iphone 4s

    Yes.  Siri not working at all for me - seeing the same error messages/responses as you.


    Within the Siri settings the language says (Null) ((Null)) for all three languages....doesn't seem right to me?


    Perhaps issues on Apple's side?

    Yes. Same with me. It worked for the 1st hour, then hasn't worked since. It tells me the same messages AND it's been telling me that I have no network connection when [clearly] I do.

    Yes, so far it's been a dismal experience.  I've tried everything.  It times out easily, has network issues and can't tell the differnce between "David" and "Thomas" when both have the same last names.  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.  The Siri application worked far better. 

  • pgoldie Level 1 (0 points)

    Yes, exact same issue.  It's on, I've tried all the suggested questions.  It goes away to think for quite a while with spinning glow and returns with "Sorry, something's gone wrong. Can you try that again?" or something similar each time.  Then it just said out loud (but did not write out) "Sorry, I'm having trouble connecting to the network". I'm on wifi and the wifi is working well for other apps.  Maybe their servers are overwhelmed?

    Yes...same here. Pretty disappointing. Must be an overcrowded server issue or something,

  • jmfrank1 Level 1 (0 points)

    same here. Just got my 4s activated and Siri does not work at all. Ridiculous!

  • KKS888 Level 1 (0 points)

    Mine says connection error ever and over

  • Alfredo Jahn Level 3 (820 points)

    Same problems here. "Oh oh, something is wrong".  Nice...

    Finally got it to work, and it's working wonderfully now that it does!! Here's what I did (basically just reset it):


    1. Disable Siri under Settings/General

    2. Turn phone off completely

    3. Turn phone back on

    4. Enable Siri under Settings/General


    Hope it works for you all, too.

    I have the same exact issue, I tap the mic icon and before it even let's me speak it tells me "Uh oh, something is wrong". This is after restoring a backup from my iPhone 4 which was running iOS 5. Not sure if this is a hardware issue or software issue due to my restore.

  • jmfrank1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Didn't work for me

  • barken Level 1 (0 points)

    Having similar issues.  Siri worked great earlier in the day.  Then about 1730 ET Siri kept giving me a message like, "Sorry Ken, I cannot help you."  Then around 2000 ET all I can get is, "Network busy."  Tried steps of disabling Siri and restarting iPhone only to receive the same error message that Siri cannot connect because the network is busy.

  • BillyWilder Level 1 (0 points)

    Hannahat I tried your suggestion but still nothing works.

  • loisfromblueridge Level 1 (0 points)

    Mine doesn't even bother to respond to me (just like my kids)!!  The mike seems to light up when I talk but doesn't do anything after that.  Hmmm, this feature was the soul reason why I traded up on the iphones!!  Not very happy!
