    I had the same problem but fixed it by clicking on Country in the home address within my chosen contact card. It had 'UK' in there but on clicking, you choose from a drop-down list. Choose 'United Kingdom' (for example) and it may well work - it did for me :)

    Did you try telling Siri what your home address is?  If you tell Siri what to call you, she uses that name from then on.  It is worth at least trying to tell her what your home address is.  I would include your country too when you speak to her.

    I had the same issue but editing the home address field "country" from UK to the drop down address of United Kingdom worked.

    anyone have made sure both descrptions on the address both dont say the samed thing? i had that problem it was a pretty fairly thing to over look i played around with it for a good hour until i realized it. hope this helps out.

    I have the same problem. I deleted all of my address and added bits until Siri said it knew my home address. I set some test reminders with Siri. They didn't work so I checked the reminders and found it was using a completely different location in my city with a different post code. However, there was an alternative on the reminder which is my correct address. I checked that and it worked.

     

    So as far as Siri is concerned the home address in my address card is a completely different address.

     

    Baffling.

    I have worked it out, when I set my correct address it didnt work, so i clicked my address in my contact and the pin was off the road, so i dropped a pin on the actual road and added to contact and it worked

     

    Woohaa.

    Brilliant Jay. This is the first thing that has properly worked.

     

    It created an additional address for me labelled address and still didn't work so I labelled my correct address "address" and the dropped pin address "home".

  • Torshen Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    None of these things worked, however I have had a breakthrough.

     

    If I say "remind me to <whatever> when I get home" then Siri doesn't know where my home is, however if I say "remind me to <whatever> when I ARRIVE home" then it works perfectly.

     

    Try it and let me know if it works for you guys too.

    I too had the same problems as everyone else on here but I've sussed it out how to do it. Go on google maps on your phone and find your home or work etc on the map. Now on your home press your finger on the screen and it drops a pin with a blue arrow.

     

    Click on the blue arrow

     

    click on add to contacts

     

    click on add to existing contact

     

    find your own contact details and click on it

     

    your details open up with the address you dropped the pin on now in your address field.

     

    click on edit at the top right hand side of the screen

     

    now scroll down to the address and click on the address description at the side of the listed address and select either home, work other or add custom label.

     

    The custom label is good for anything else you need to name. I have all our branches now listed under say, wolverhampton brach, telford branch etc. This way I can get siri to remind me where ever I want to go such as " remind me to get my tools back when i get to the "wolverhampton branch". Works 100% every time this way.

     

    Hope this helps you guys out.

    I know a solution, ask siri what your home address is, then ask it to remind you about something when you get home. It will work when you do that.

  • O-Z Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    This is definitely the way to go. I've tried it a few times and Siri gets it each time. Thanks for the help.

  • merrick777 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    This was such an encouraging post (dropping pin on map for your address, then adding it to your own existing contact info). Unfortunately it still doesn't work and it's very exhasperating!  (The only difference between the address that I previously had and the new address that came from dropping the pin was that the latter said "New York" instead of "NY" for the state)

     

    I tried:

    1) "remind me when I get home to call xxxx"

    2) "when i get home, remind me to call xxx"

    3) "when I arrive home, remind me to call xxx"

    4) asking siri "what's my home address?" - then it shows me the address pulled from contacts (but doesnt say it)

    5) verified that 'my info' shows me correctly in settings->general->siri

    6) walking around my property with map open and making sure that it shows me exactly on the pin.

    7) verified that 'location services' is ON for siri and maps. Curiously, in order to make this work, I would think that 'location services' would need to be ON for 'reminders'.... but there's not an option to turn it ON or OFF for 'reminders'.

    8) verified that 'Notifications' is ON for 'reminders'

     

    My contact info is in my EXCHANGE address book. Shouldn't matter, should it? I don't have myself in the locally stored address book because my company has me in the exchange server, and I dont want to have duplicates (of me, or ANY contacts).

     

    Any more ideas???

    I'm a new Apple user, i got the iPhone 4S and learnt a lot thats how i knew that.
    I don't know anything else that could help you, but i'm waiting for iOS 5.0.2 to fix the battery drain problem, lets hope it works and it has your SIRI problem in the update.

  • merrick777 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    For those who DO have this working:

    Does the actual text of the reminder say "When I get home, xxxxxx"? Mine does.

    Regardless whether I say:

    - "when I ARRIVE at home, remind me to xxx"  or

    - "remind me when I get home to xxx"  or

    - "when I get home, remind me to xxx"

    I even tried "What is my home address?" -> Verified that it had it correctly -> "When I get to my home address, remind me to xxx".

     

    No matter how I say it, the actual text of the reminder comes out as "When I get home, remind me to xxxx"

     

    I've yet to be reminded of anything upon home arrival.
