    hey all I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this. One of my friends is named Caleigh. When I try to contact her through Siri, it doesn't get who Im talking about. It thinks Im asking for "Kaylee". So I tried the phonetic name field. I added "Kaylee" and now Siri will bring up Caleigh's contact info and dial her number but no matter how hard I try it won't text correctly. It always ask "To whom should I send this message: Kaylee (last name)" Any thoughts on how to fix this? thanks!

    You got through the first important part and got her to recognize the name. I would try breaking the command into two parts and see what happens:

    "Send a text"
    who should I send a text to?
    "Kaylee"
