    When I tell Siri "schedule a meeting for tomorrow at 2PM", it sets it up then asks me to confirm. I say "yes" and then it takes forever and tells me "Sorry, I'm afraid I can't do that."

    Tried this on my wife's phone and it doesn't work either. Does it work for anyone here? I find it strange they advertise this in their commercials but it doesn't work!

    I think it could just be a server issue with so many people using it.

    I noticed that it not only set up a meeting, but it also took the liberty of sending it to the person in my address book who I was including in the meeting. Only problem is Siri didn't ask which email address to use.

    I also set up a meeting and Siri sent an e-mail to the person I mentioned in it. Does anyone know how to change the setting so an e-mail isn't sent?

    Are you a prior MobileMe subscriber? Yesterday access to my email and calendar was off and on. It was a server issue. That could be one reason if so...

    Siri not scheduling a meeting.

    First of all, the above mentioned folks that state "Mine works just fine" is not really an answer to the problem and is not at all helpful.

    I had this issue this morning on my newly work issued 5c and have found the fix to this to be to 'reboot' the iPhone by holding down the power (sleep/wake) button and the home button at the same time until the apple icon appears. After the reboot Siri worked just fine.
