    I just got my 4S and call me sad but one of the features I was looking forward to most was location fencing in reminders - it would remind you to do something when you left the area.

    I can see no option to do this on my 4S (reminders is not in location services)

    Any ideas?

    In the reminders app, you can be reminded when leaving or arriving at a location.

    This is done right through adding a reminder.

    You add the reminder, then you have to click on "remind me", then turn on "At a location" and then choose.

    If you pick "when I arrive", you have to have the address in your contacts to select from (why Apple decided not to let us enter an address manually I have no idea).

    you can use Siri for this too:

    "remind me to order pizza when I get home" --
    home has to be a known address in your contact
    Siri needs to know who you are (in setup).

    you can also say something like:
    "remind me to order pizza after 6pm when I get home"
    I think that is similar but "6pm" and "home" are now OR conditions -- whichever happens first (from what I can tell)
