    Is anyone having problems with Siri? Holding the home button does absolutely nothing at times. It's not the button itself because I'll quickly take a screenshot or exit an app to test it's functionality and all is well. Restarting the device brings her back to life for a time, though.

    7.1 here.

    I have the opposite problem. If I ignore Siri very long she starts talking to me.

    This just started happening to me. Yesterday a couple of times I would pick up the iPhone 5 and hold down the button but the screen would stay black. Pressing a second time would wake the screen and get Siri as normal. Now this morning pressing the button wakes up the screen but I can't get Siri. It still works fine on my iPad.

    OP, are you doing when the phone is locked? I noticed that with iOS 7, I first have to wake the phone up then press the home button for Siri. If I press the button to wake it up and keep holding, activating Siri is hit or miss.

    Siri's been working normally for me again since yesterday.

    Have you checked in your settings to make sure that Siri is still enabled?

    For some reason, many of the write-ups on Siri with 7.1 say you have to PRESS & HOLD the home button to talk to Siri. This ISN'T true in reality. You press/hold to activate Siri, but from that time on, you converse with her as before the update without pressing or holding the home button.

    I can't figure out where the authors of the write-ups got their info.

    Well, it does say so in the Siri settings. Nonetheless, what you are saying is correct, you don't have to hold down the button while speaking, but you do get this "push to talk" behaviour if you keep holding the button down after the initial "di-ding" sound – then she'll listen for as long as you hold down the button.

    Of course. And as my OP states, a restart fixes the issue. Furthermore, even if I did have Siri disabled the voice control application would appear. (When it does it) it doesn't matter whether I'm locked, at the homescreen, in an app, et cetera.

    Two things to ask:

    1) Did you try a hardware reset ?

    2) Have you tried Siri with 'assistive touch' ?

    No and no. Siri works fine for the moment. It's only happened two or three times.
