    Is this new?

    I said "Send a message a [friends name], [message]"

    Siri correctly identified the friend and sent the message, but asked how me how to pronounce the name:

    Is there a way to force this to happen? I have a few Indian friends and Siri destroys their names. Its gotten to the point that I purposely incorrectly pronounce peoples names so Siri can identify who I'm talking about....

    Tell her "learn to pronounce ________'s name."

    I told SIRI that she pronounce a name incorrectly, and she gave me three options. Real easy, and nice to have.
