    I'm curious if anybody knows. I've tried several google searches, and searched this forum as well.

    I haven't received my preorder yet, and, of course I'm anxious to get my hands on my new phone. I'm readin lots of reviews, etc on people's experiences thus far.and it's making me drool all the more.

    I want to know if anybody has tried changing Siri's name yet. Not their own name, but what name you use to address the virtual assistant herself. If so, any success? How did you do it?

    The name isn't used anywhere. It does show in settings. You simply hold the home button before telling Siri what you want done.

    Is there any situation where you have to address the software by it's name?

    doesn't look like it, if you tell siri it's name is something else it just comes back and says "my name? It's Siri"
