I know I am way late for the party but I finally got to experience Siri for the first time as my wife upgraded her 3G to the 5 yesterday. I have the 4 so we haven't used it before. It has worked flawlessly, everything from sending texts to googling to setting reminders, she hasn't missed once yet. I guess I didn't know what to expect after reading the endless complaints, but it has been a great experience so far. This post must sound very dated but this upgrade is nice.
