    Hey,

    I got my 4s this morning and am having great fun with Siri. One thing that is really annoying me tho, in all the videos apple have released Siri is a women's voice but mine is a guys voice which isn't so nice :( Is there any way of changing the voice?

    I imagine there's something in settings; have you dug around and seen if there's anything for siri or voice control?

    I think it can

    You go to the Siri settings and choose US language

    ----------

    Does it understand you well? How did you get the phone early?

    Think I will have it on US too...don't like the sound of the uk guy from what I have seen on the demos

    This is funny cause I hate the girl Siri voice. First thing I'll do is switch it to UK. Sounds kinda like Jarvis from Iron Man.

    I wish I could select an option for a voice like Mr T's or something like that.

    Thats funny, I'll probably switch to UK because I like the accent... Granted, a woman would be much nicer to listen to... But I can handle Jarvis... LOL

    I'm thinking I'd like the voice of a 65 year old, short, overweight New Jersey woman that hangs out in bingo parlors and dive bars smoking 3 packs of Camels and 10 shots of Jack Daniels a day, with a hacking cough, a vocabulary of a drunken sailor, wears spandex, smells of a fish market on a hot August afternoon and the attitude of someone.... like.... hmm.... say Snooki....

    Huh? I just described Snooki's future self.

    Ok, maybe thats a bad idea.

    It would have been more fun if it was like having a baby and it's all random. I feel bad for the female Siris going to China.

    I'm definitely going to change to the UK voice, since I'm a straight girl it'll feel weird when I talk dirty to the US voice. :D

    Nope, don't change it. I just tried changing mine to UK to get the man's voice and when I do it won't let me search for US information. I tried searching for map information and Siri responds that if I want to search in the United States that I have to use the US language setting.

    Annoying. Just let me change the voice!
