    I'm experience a slight annoyance with Siri. Check out my conversation:

    Me - Text
    Siri - Okay, who do you want to send a text message to? I need a contact name or phone number.
    Me - Paul
    Siri - Okay, calling Paul [last name]

    ...second try:

    Me - Text message
    Siri - (Same response as above)
    Me - Paul [last name]
    Siri - Okay, calling Paul [last name]

    ...So Siri is mixing up "Paul" with "call", but also, weirdly, if I ask it to text "Paul" it will "call Paul" without me saying more than one word. Anyone else with friends named Paul that experienced this?

    Yeah don't try to command Siri just tell it what you want. Your discussion is an abbot and Costello routine.

    Just say "text Paul" or "send text to Paul"

    Siri is not mixing up Paul and call your direction is simply unclear
