Hi All, I posted this on the Apple support forums and they kicked it out. Maybe I will get some answers here? I've been reading MacRunors for a long time. I am a BIG long time apple fan. I own at least one of most apple devices. Lately though I have just been so frustrated at the lack of hands free capability, particularly using siri. Naturally my phone has a lock code and it is set to lock after 2 mins, which means most of the time its locked. I have the settings set correctly to allow siri from the lock screen. I expect that this setting should allow me to ask siri things when I need her the most such as the following: 1 - I have my ear pods in because I am walking. I hear that I get a text message so I press the control on my pod to activate siri, I ask her to read my message and she tells me I will need to unlock my phone....major failure. 2 - Same as above but I ask her to call my wife - You'll need to unlock your phone....bigger failure 3 - Same above scenarios occur if phone is in car and plugged in (charging) and I say "hey siri" - she responds with I will need to unlock my phone... Basically anything you really need siri to do when hands free is useless if your phone is locked. What is the purpose of allowing siri when phone is locked if all she will do is tell you to unlock your phone??? I have an iPhone 6-plus with ios 8.2, I thought maybe 8.2 would fix it but no. What is going to happen when the watch comes? If I ask the watch something will it make me unlock my phone first?? This just seems like such a MAJOR failure and major user interface issue. Am I the only one trying to use my phone this way? Or is my phone just broken? I am pretty sure I have tried similar things on my ipads as well all running IOS 8.2 with same results, although I don't carry them around as much so maybe I should take a walk with my mini and try it? I'd love to hear other experiences. Thanks for listening to my rant.
