    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!

    Nice. Does not work from the lock screen but does once unlocked.

    Thanks, that's what my problem was. Kept trying from the lock screen. Will not work from there.

    I just tried it and it goes to the slide to power off screen. Then I would have to finish it.

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

    Sometimes Siri replies with "Ok John, what's next?" Have to keep repeating "restart" and she finally resprings.

    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.

    Yes, same here.
    It took like 10 seconds and seemed like a respring.
    Pretty cool.

    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.
