    I find myself never finding the need to use it, although I prefer just to do everything on the phone itself. If I used it on the train or if I'm walking on the sidewalk it might seem like I'm talking to myself, or just knowing everyone knows what I'm saying ( texting, Internet search, etc ). Anyone find Siri or just voice implimentation in general useless? :confused:

    I'd say maybe every other day. I definitely use it a few times during the week.

    I don't have Siri yet, but I think once I get the new iPhone, I would use her a lot.

    I seldom use Siri, but only when I want to use it.

    I use her anytime I drive, I need to remember something (reminder), and anytime I need to search/convert something.

    Used it only once and it sucked. So it's turned off on both my iPhones since day 1.

    Use it everyday when I am driving as well. It's also great for random conversions, trivia questions, setting up reminders, hands-free calling..all sorts of things. And when SIRI's update in iOS6 takes effect, app launching is going to be a pretty cool feature.

    Never used it when I had the 4S. Siri was painfully slow and the voice recognition was terrible.

    For setting reminders and alarms there is no better or quicker way IMO than Siri, I would truly miss that feature if it was gome. I also use it for playing music in the car which works out well. For a beta software I am happy with the performance and look forward to the enhancements in iOS6. While it may not quite be there yet, this is the future of communication with our technology just in an early stage of development.

    I use Siri daily.

    It's extremely helpful with alarms, reminders, and pretty much for anything while driving; make calls, take down notes, or simply having it read an article.

    I've found if I keep the notation somewhat short - one to two sentences at a time, it rarely gives me problems.

    I agree with the previous poster. I use Siri every day and it definitely makes my life easier. I live using it for responding to texts while driving and for reminders and adding things to my calendar. I work two jobs so using Siri definitely helps me keep everything in my life in order.

    I only use it a few times a month. Not because I don't find it useful, I just forget about it. I use it to search for numbers when I'm in traffic or something like that "Call Target in XXXXXX." I've been using it quite a bit lately, I'm not at all disappointed with it.

    Use it everyday, Use it for my work schedule, setting my timer for my lunches. Sending text when in a hurry, reminders for customers or for when I get home to do something. Movie times (ios6) and directions (iOS6)

    Use it at least once a day.

    With 6.0 starting to use it more.

    Once in a while it's not the recognition but rephrasing the query that gets better results.

    YMMV

    I disabled the most annoying "feature" Apples ever created.

    Yet that said I can't help but laugh when I read how people talk about "her".

    Poor souls they must be awfully lonely. Or worse :)

    I would use siri a lot more if it wasn't crippled in the UK....I use it for texts and email from time to time, but am hoping with IOS6 we will see a marked improvement.

    For the first few days it's a novelty and you use Siri for everything. After a week it becomes useless and you turn it off.

    I mainly use it just for reminders. IMO, the reminders app is way too clunky to navigate through so it's easier to set them with my wonderful personal assistant

    I think i would use it mostly for reminders and alarms, it seems faster and easier than unlocking the iPhone, finding the app, typing it in, and then accepting.

    And also with Siri built into iOS 6 maps, I will use it there a lot too. At least, I think I will. :p
