    I have set Siri home/work reminders 5 times thus far...all have been confirmed by Siri and set up properly...

    Only 2 of them have worked...seems no rhyme or reason...anyone else having issues with this?

    Only problem is with location reminder...when a specific TIME is set, it works perfectly.

    Siri's still the beta stages so you're probably just experiencing some bugs. I wouldn't rely on it very heavily.

    ^^^ Siri is in the beta stages but I feel this should be specific to the Reminder app since Siri just assist in creating the reminders.

    OP, when it didn't work, what did you set it up with and how did you consider that it didn't work?

    First time I used the reminder app, I set up a reminder for when I left my home. It didn't remind me until I was about 5 minutes/several miles away. I'm not sure what Apple set as the "geo fence", though. I would expect it to remind me a bit earlier than it did for me, but I realize a buffer needs to be set.
