    Hi, i live in Cyprus too, and had this problem. I think I have fixed it.


    Make sure that all your local contacts have +357 in front of their numbers, and you also need to make you do the same with YOUR number. Go to your own contact card to make this change.


    As soon as I did this, Siri has worked perfectly making local and international calls.

    According to this forum:, it seems that Siri is expecting a 7-8 digit phone numbers excluding the country code and area code, so adding an extra "0" digit or two at the back of the phone number may be able to fix your problem. The phone number should still connect correctly. Try that, it works for me in Indonesia where some phone numbers are still 6 digits.

    Normaly in some countries there are less numbers than normal in one phone number, usualy in smaller countries, so try to add one or more + or 0 after the last number that you want siri to call for you, + works for me wery well. I aded one + to the end of numbers that I use more frequently and it works just fine, but also note that when you ad + in the end of the phone number you cant send sms messages to this number anymore.

    Btw forgot to mention; It works for me (in Cyprus) as well since the update 5.1 (not 5.1.1)!

    I'm on 5.1.1(came preloaded) I also can't make any local calls through SIRI.


    However, only US & Canadian numbers can be dialed by siri.


    My country code 880 (Bangladesh)

    My cell Number starts with 017XXXXXXX

    All cell numbers are saved in this format +880 17XXXXXXXX


    My Area Code (Dhaka) 02

    All Land phone  numbers are saved in this format +880 27217187


    I can't dial neither of them through siri.


    Can someone shed some light on as to how may I get siri to dial my local numbers?

    If you have updated your iPhone 4s to the NEW iOS6 & the FaceTime feature is switched "OFF" Siri will NOT make external calls & will say " I'm not permitted to do that" So all you have to do is switch the FaceTime feature "ON" & you should be able to give Siri a voice command to call a number from your contacts or even perform a simple "call home" task. Some people say that if you reset your iPhone via iTunes it will solve the problem, it will until you decide to switch FaceTime off. It is a lot more cumbersome to reset your iPhone rather then open FaceTime & switch it 'ON". Hope this helps you.....

    GoTo: Settings > General > Restrictions > Flip FaceTime to “ON/OFF

    The only way it's to turn Siri off and work with the regular voice program that's its very good.
