    I have a Vodafone SIM card in my iPhone 5S during my traveling for a month in New Zealand. Works great and provides a hotspot for my other devices.

    This phone is off the ATT grid since I don't use it in the US. I do have the ATT sim that I used to use on the phone. With the Vodafone sim or with the old ATT SIM card in the phone, I get ALL Siri responses in Arabic (voice and print).

    I'm guessing when I return to the US in 2 weeks, I can "wipe" the phone and then restore it to the last back to the backup I made before leaving the US. Wondering if that is correct? Also wondering if I some how got the phone hacked to cause this problem? Any response would be welcome.

    Can't you just change the siri voice/print to your choosing? Or is the problem something else?

    You can change the language and the Siri voice there. You have to change the language first, then you'll have the choice of regional variants/dialects.

    Didn't know about that option! I must have inadvertently switched to Arabic. Just change it back to English.

    Thanks a bunch! I thought I might have been hacked.
