    St. Jobs dies and they forget how to run everything.  Not a very good launch at all.  So far I have wasted all day first trying to activate the phone and now the only exciting feature of the 4s is not working.

    I reached Apple Support.  The agent wasn't very knowledgeable about Siri and eventually chalked my issues up to network congestion.

  • ethaves Level 1 Level 1

    I'm having the same problem. Siri was barely working at all earlier (which led me to believe the "s" actually stood for "slow) and now Siri responds to every request with "there is a problem." My experience was nothing at all like the Apple commercials depict nor the technology columnists write about.

     

    Siri must use the same awful network server AT&T is using for activations. My friend is going on 8 hours waiting for activation to occur- and after being "helped" by AT&T has no working phone. My iPhone 4S just recently activated after a 7.5 hour wait.

     

    No point in calling Apple about Siri not working or anything else- calling their tech support line returns a prerecorded message saying they aren't taking any calls. And AT&T? They are only capable of telling you to keep waiting.

     

    Neither the phone nor the service were free. And I can't even get so much as a "I'm sorry" from Apple or AT&T. In this economy both companies should be doing everything they can to make their customers happy.

     

    Never even considered an Android phone and have been an AT&T customer for 4 years. If these issues aren't resolved by noon Saturday- 24 hours after they started- I will no longer be an iPhone owner.

    Problems with Siri are due to "network congestion?" Hmm...so what happens when more people attempt to use what was promoted as the hallmark feature of the new phone? What is Apple using that supposed server farm in North Carolina for? You would think maybe they could fill it with more than surplus Apple stickers- like maybe a few servers to deliver on the services they promote.

    Thanks Hannahat!  It worked!!!  Make sure you give everything time to load before you inable siri. 

  • Apple_Freaks Level 1 Level 1

    @hannahat-Thanks! Siri works now after following your instruction.

  • CJMNYC Level 1 Level 1

    As per the earlier suggestion from another user - disabling Siri, turning the phone on/off and then re-enabling Siri did the trick.  Works like a charm. Thanks!

    I've tried Disabling Siri, Powering Down, Powering On and Enabling Siri three times, the last time I did a Hard Reset and nothing has worked for me

  • Alfredo Jahn Level 3 Level 3

    I also tried the shut off, reboot, enable. Now I get a different error from Siri "unable to connect to network". Can't belive the one "special feature" isn't working... If Steve was still with us, he would be ******.

  • Rootwitch Level 1 Level 1

    Same here. Got my phone at 10am. Worked fine all day until around 7 cmt. Then got all the "uh oh" errors. Tried this new trick, now she can't find the network.

  • Rootwitch Level 1 Level 1

    SiriGate... Apples launches have been really poor since Jobs became ill, and now that he's gone... Yikes.

  • PeteLP Level 1 Level 1

    Not working for me either.

     

    It tries and then gives up.

     

    Things I've tried:

     

    - I've asked Siri: What is today? (and many other simple questions)

    - I've tried using the mike in a text message, it worked earlier, but since then has always come back with nothing (after showing the flashing dots)

    - Tried a)-disabling, b)-rebooting, c)-re-enabling.  No change.

    - Nothing about Siri is working for me.

     

    It's probably network congestion, but I'd love to see some confirmation that Apple knows and is doing something.
