    Every time I ask Siri to do something musical. Such a headache. Even switching airplane mode on and off doesn't work. Power off or soft reset is always needed to get her to work. Starting to get really pissed off.

    Apple, do something!

    Report your Feedback to Apple so the developers who are working on Siri while it is in BETA can address your issues.

    My wife was having major issues on her iPhone 5 with Siri hearing commands. We took it to the Apple store and it turned out that one of the microphones was defective. She was still able to make calls with the defective microphone, as well.

    Maybe you are experiencing the same problem.

    Why don't you people just not use Siri? Its stupid and obviously doesn't work most of the time.

    The more you use it, the more you help it.

    Worked every single time I've used it since I got my iPhone 5 (at least 12+ occasions since Monday). It helped me dictate texts while driving, read my texts to me, and helped play songs.

    When Siri doesn't work isn't it kinda like being 8 feet from the TV and asking everyone "Where's the remote?"

    yeah, I use siri, if it doesn't work, I just open the phone and do whatever manually. It takes an extra 5 seconds.

    With Siri you need to articulate clearly. I noticed any hint of an accent or non standard way of reciting a word will confuse it/her.

    I believe it learns your voice as you use it more.

    I'm assuming something along the lines of "Shuffle all songs," or "Play songs by Adele".

    I find Siri is fine over WiFI - on the aging O2 3G network (ha!) its pretty slow.

    I hope you are saying this in jest. Hard to beleive this feature would still be Beta after close to 12 months of Production use.

    You might need to upgrade your version. Which version you are using right now?
