    I find myself dictating every text message, Email and status update. most of the time I dont have to fix anything once and awhile I have to fix small things. Loving the 4S! have any other 4S owners been using the hell out of the dictation and Siri features?

    I use it quite frequently (if I'm not in public lol). It is a lot easier to just dictate what you want to say than actually type it (most of the time). Siri doesn't mess up often enough for it to be a nuisance, for me at least. My friends and family have been curious why I have been spelling out words and not abbreviating them lol. It's because of Siri :D

    Dictation's awesome. I'd say it's 95% accurate. It's a great time-saver!

    I'm addicted to it. I'll dictate all my texts as long as I'm not in a place where it's not appropriate (I share an office with someone so I can't exactly dictate the messages to my boyfriend, haha). But it is incredibly accurate, I'm impressed. It's such a time saver and definitely my favorite feature on my new phone!

    It works very well for me, I'm impressed. I wish my ipad2 had it as I'm hooked!

    Is this dictation feature only iphone 4S or is it iOS5? My boyfriend has an iPhone 4 and still needs to upgrade to iOS5 and he was inquiring if he'll have the feature too.

    It's been one of the best features for me. Siri is great and I can see using dictation for Emails and Text Messages nearly all the time now. In my use it's 98% better in accuracy in the past few hours of having fun with it :)

    Yeah, it is fantastic. I've always tried this feature on other phones with miserable results. Dictation is great and WAY better than typing a message. Siri, of course, is killer too.

    It gets everything right most of the time. It has been learning how to spell the words I say better and better. My girlfriends name is spelled differently and it caught on quickly. I like how if you say "Smiley face" or "Frown Face" it inserts :) or :(. It is a very awesome deal if you ask me.
