Total Siri newb here, coming from iPhone 4 to new iPhone 5 (and hence, iOS6 of course)... In case any of you have gotten so used to the quirks of Siri that you can't imagine it being HARD to use for anyone: here's my experience. First, I have "raise to speak" turned OFF because i've heard it uses a lot of battery. Still true? I think I understand the consequences of having it off.. Oh, and I have SIRI *off* in my lock screen, so jerks can't post to my facebook or sends texts if they find my phone. Why can't SIRI just ask me to SPEAK my passcode to it so I don't have to do it manually on the screen? I don't understand this. How hard could it be? So, I'm leaving work today and decide to use SIRI to send a text while I'm at a red light. I light up the screen, slide, and enter my passcode. With my fingers. I hold down the home button for a couple seconds and it goes DING, so that's good. Here's where it goes wrong I think: I hold it up to my ear like I'm going to ask it to call my wife, but instead I ask it to send a text. Oh, before that it goes DING DING when it's up to my ear. THEN I ask it to send a text. But I get nothing. The traffic light turns green and I'm driving and still nothing. I look at the screen, which I shouldn't have to do, and it's asking me what it can do for me. On the SCREEN. I press the microphone, which I also shouldn't have to manually do, and then I ask it again. It lets me tell it the text to send and then asks if I want to send it, but it doesn't read it back to me even though I have voice feedback set to "Always". I'm confused. Why am I looking at the screen so much? Oh, and another thing I tried: asking it about nearby Indian restaurants. It came up with several, but it listed them on the screen. I was kinda hoping it would read them to me. Because I'm DRIVING. Am I using this wrong?
