    I had to replace my iPhone 5 today due to a power button that was failing, and now Siri isn't working on the new iPhone. I just see that annoying spinning purple light until I cancel. I've restarted the device and used the home button/power button reset method.

    Anyone else have this issue with a new iPhone and fixed it? Siri worked fine on my previous iPhone.

    Try restoring your device from a back up. It may do nothing, but it's worth a shot. If it doesn't work, plan a trip back to Apple in the near future.

    Question is who really uses Siri? I sure as hell don't.

    I thought it would be much more advanced.

    Takes two seconds to do it manually.

    It seems to have randomly started working for this phone tonight, so yay. And haha, I use Siri mainly when I'm driving in traffic and don't want to text on the screen. I also use it for the occasional reminder.

    "Wake me up in 20" is more efficient than unlocking my phone, opening a folder, the clock app and finding one out of the 50 alarms I have or scrolling through numbers to set a new one :rolleyes:

    That's the only reason to use it, to me. Alarms and timers.
