    You really want to know honestly what I think? I really don't like the iPhone, it's slow, doesn't have flash or and there isn't apps out for the iPhone to do what I do for a living. I thought the iPhone was going to be better than my Black Berry. Turns out, it isn't. Plus the data plan is just too **** expensive because the "iPhone" needs it all the time. I'm paying $500 bucks total on my bill each month for two iPhones. Worst investment ever.

    "I'm paying $500 bucks total on my bill each month for two iPhones. "

    Unless each phone is downloading like 20GB of data each month, don't see how this would even be possible.

     

    Whic carrier and which plan do you have?

    "noise cancelleling technology" sounds like a load of crap to me. Its all about the money. They want you spending more to buy an iphone that has a new name that costs twice as much just to get siri. Has nothing to do with The hardware used to make the phone. I had my iphone 4 jailbroken and put siri on it and it worked fine. **** im pretty sure someone even was able to implement a siri like program on an old envy phone. Has nothing to do with hardware dont be blinded by the crap apple feeds you.

    I'm ticked off of that 2. But the reason the iphone 4 doesent get Siri is because the microphone isnt good enough. jailbroke my itouch 4 and got Siri on it. It SUCKED!! When i said whats the weather it said " Can you say that again?" But I love it on my iPad 3.

    That isn't true. The iPhone 4 has a good microphone. The reason that Siri isn't on the 4 is because it's a selling point for the 4S. And don't believe that hardware crap, simply isn't true.

    The iPod touch 4's mic is on the back so it's inconvenient for Siri. This likely explains your poor response.

    If, like me you can't get Siri on your iPhone 4, just download the Google app which has voice search included....

     

    If Apple won't provide it, then Google will

    A processor itself contains programming code? Wow, this must be some next gen stuff here!  It's all about money, you must be living in a "iphone works because of magic" reality.

    Siri can be on the iPhone 4. Please, I like iPhone, it's a great tool, and I have both an iPhone and an Android phone.

     

    There is NO HARDWARE INTERFERENCE KEEPING SIRI FROM RUNNING ON IPHONE 4.

     

    Reasons why:

    1. Apple is a corporation.
    2. Whats the goal of a corporation? TO MAKE MONEY.
    3. How does Apple make it's money? BY LIMITING ITS DEVICES SO YOU MUST BUY THE NEXT ONE.

     

     

     

    It's all software based WHY SIRI WILL NOT WORK ON IPHONE 4.

     

     

     

    So, what I am trying to state is all you computer noobs who think it's device limitation should double check their sources, and take a basic PC Hardware/Software class.

     

    Regards, BurntWaffle69.

    Regardless of why, Siri is not available for the iPhone 4.
