When using siri I get the error message, "Sorry, I am having trouble connecting to the network". I have spoken to a few others who receivec the 4s today who are getting the same error message. Does anyone have a fix for this?


iPhone 4, iOS 5

    REBOOT and Siri is working just fine.

    Set and alarm

    make a phone call

    asked to be called by a nickname


    Love it! Thanks Apple!

    Does not work, tried several combinations: reboot, reset network settings, turn Siri on/off. Siri is down.

    Worked flawlessly yesterday, hasn't worked all morning. The only solution is on Apple. Do a google search, quite a number of people experiencing same problem.

    There are a bunch of folks having this problem... I wonder when Apple is going to make a statement? My guess is a server overload. I'm able to utilize 3g and Wifi for all my other apps, so it wouldn't be beyond reason that Siri might have crashed. They never hid the fact that this release was a beta, and unexpected problems often crop up with betas... sort of inherant in the process.


    Regardless, it would be nice to hear something back from an actual Apple representative. Give us something. Anything?

    I'm having the same problem. I have 2 iPhone 4S and one works fine and one hasn't ever worked with Siri. I have restarted it twice, which didn't help. I'm sure they can be on different servers, but it's odd that the one that works, always works perfectly. It's really an amazing new feature.

    After trying EVERYTHING that everyone else has with this same problem (resetting and restarting, etc) I think I solved it! Go to the Siri settings and make sure on the "My Info" you are listed.

    When I selected myself, it suddely started working again! Let me know if this works for you.

    I had that already set up, so that's not it. I think the comments about overloading the server is it. My second iPhone just started working correctly.

    I rebooted and it worked fine for awhile, then a few hours later Siri said unable to connect to network, but everything else is working fine????  help

    Actually, Siri servers have been overloaded with all the Apple geeks (includin gme) playing with their new toy at a rate above normal usage. At least that's the logical conclusion considering the epic amount of posts regarding this issue. Otherwise, the beta tag on Siri is more true than we thought, which I doubt considering Apple's high standards on released products. So, a reboot won't worker if the servers are own. I've been intermittent all day. no big deal - things will mellow out and move back towards normal usage.

    Siri worked for me right out of the box, then once activated with Verizon, seemed to start getting the network trouble message.  Today it has been almost not at all.  Could be a coincidence that the all the users of the one million units that sold out on the first day are playing with it...  but seems like they should have not only expected that, but built out servers to scale way beyond that... seriously Siri, the only demand on the servers right now are from the early adopters... what's going to happen when all three carriers start shipping units?

    This has nothing to do with rebooting. Most Siri processing is happening in the cloud. The service is in BETA (as was announced at press event), so still in a testing phase. Under heavy loads or when Apple is doing maintenance the system stops working for several hours.

    I have rebooted my iPhone about 12 times because of Siri. Besides that Siri works pretty well. If apple can fix this that would be amazing

  • Bill In CO Level 1 (0 points)

    Just posting to confirm that I still have nothing on Siri (never worked).


    Have done multiple hard and soft restarts, turn siri off, reboot, turn on... all that nonsense.


    I think this is not a phone issue, and that reports that "I did this and it started working!" are likely coincidence with being able to slip in through a hole to the servers at that time. Also very possible there's some carrier-based routing to apple's servers that's causing difference in behavior based on carrier and/or geographic location?


    I'm in Boulder CO using ATT.

    Add me to the list of those having network connection problems with Siri. Worked since I bought the phone on Friday, not working since about 10am EST.

    Reboot and other stuff didn't work.  I think it is everyone demoing it for their co-workers.
