    I'm still impressed how functional Siri is. But I uncounted a "hiccup" that has me confused.

    I put a haircut appointment on November 17. The entry is simply, "Haircut 5:15".

    I ask Siri, "When's my next haircut appointment?" She says, "November 17th".

    Neat.

    I then add my doctor appointment for March 26. The entry is again, simply "Doctor 5:00".

    I ask, "When is my next doctor appointment?" She says, "I don't see any appointment about 'doctor'."

    Odd. It worked for "haircut".

    I tried wording my question differently, even changing the entry, but Siri never tells me about my doctor's appointment.

    Thoughts?

    Same here. When i asked for "dentist appointment" i got nothing but "meeting with dentist" worked Try asking differently.

    I set my work address a 100 times, and when I say remind me when I get to work, sometimes she'll say...I don't have any work address for you...annoying!

    Also 75% of the time my location based reminders will only go off when I unlock the phone.

    I *think* it's because my doctor appointment was too far into the future. March 26, 2012.

    I made a doctor's appointment for next month and it seems to work.

    Perhaps Siri only looks 30 or 60 days ahead.
