Siri says I'm reallly sorry about this but I cannot take any requests right now. Please try again later.


iPhone 4S, iOS 5.0.1

    Mine does that when it cannot connect to the server

    I was having the same problem today... It looks like it was a bug with the latest OS update to 5.01

     

    Heres what I did to fix the problem:

     

    Goto: SETTINGS>GENERAL>RESET>RESET ALL SETTINGS

     

    Then follow the commands and reset your phone. You'll have to re-enter some info like Wi-Fi settings/passwords.... and then turn Siri and Location services back on.... but thats it and Siri should start to work again.

     

    Maybe Apple will come out with another fix, but for now, this seems to do the trick.... Good luck and let me know how you make out.

    Same here. Around 7 pm. Probably some server issue. Normal due to Siri being in Beta.

    Has anyone gotten a different follow up response from Siri? I got the original message "I'm really sorry about this,etc." a couple of times yesterday, and then again today, over a simple request to "Call Dad". II simply tried again immediately and the request went through. This morning however when i tried after receiving the original message from Siri, I got a follow up message, " There's something wrong and I can't answer your question right now. Please try again in a little while". I've had other issues with this phone and Apple is sending a replacement. Before goggling this, thought it may be an issue endemic to this particular unit. Doesn't look like it. This is my first Apple device and I am very interested to see how Apple will handle these issues, espcially of course mine.

    Woody316, thanks for the tip, tried the reset, unfortunately have since gotten the "I am really sorry about this but I cannot take any requests right now" response.

    Worked for me too, thanks so much for posting!  It'd been two days of frustration...

    @Woody316's fix worked for me!

     

    It doesn't erase anything, just resets some basic settings... you'll probably have to redo your wallpaper and ringtone.... well worth it!

     

    Hellloo Siri!

     

    thanks so much!

    It does not work for me! Really, I do knot know how could I restart the Siri services at all. I do not want to jailbreak my 4S, and I do not know how to check it is something wrong with my mobile or Siri server.

     

    Any idea?

     

    Thanks

    Started for me right after the 7.x IOS update and has been consistent on a daily basis. Never happened before that.   Usually after 2 or 3 repeated attempts Siri will finally kick in and dial a number for me.  Just installed the 7.0.3 update. Maybe that will fix it.
