This commanded worked perfectly the first week 4S was out.. I can say restart, and the phone will restart itself. Now Siri keeps telling me she doesn't know what I mean by Restart. :confused: Anyone else noticed this?

Apple probably decided it wasn't a good choice after all. They can add or remove things from Siri anytime they want to and for whatever reason.

Nice. I didn't know Siri would do this, but I just tried it and it worked. It's almost more like a respring than a restart (those of you that have been jailbroken in the past will understand what I mean by that). This is very useful!

Pretty neat. It resprings instead of rebooting. Works from lockscreen. Nice find. Not sure why it's useful but nice that it's there.

I just told siri to put the phone on vibrate mode and the mute switch just moved by itself! Haha

I wanted a fast way to completely quit all the application rather than running in the background.

Actually mine is asking "what's next". That's weird it only works for some people. :confused:

Mine restarts the os to the lock screen - doesn't restart the hardware.

Wow it just worked for me.. but only once. And it goes back to "what's next"

It just restarts your phone with less effort (if it works). :D

I'm sorry for doubting you all. As long as there is a reason to restart (low memory) the phone will respring. Again, I was wrong and I am sorry. Thanks for the awesome tip though! So much easier than killing the last few apps before I go to bed.
