    Yesterday i received my new iPhone 4s, and i played a bit with Siri. But when I go to notes for example, and I want to dictate a note, I can't see the little microphone in my keyboard. Must I activate it somewhere?

    When you click the + sign to add a new note, the dictation mic button is in the exact same spot on the keyboard.

    As you can see here, I don't have that Mic button:

    Try turning off international keyboards, or hit the "123" or "globe" key and see if it shows up anywhere. What voice do you have Siri set to?

    You may have to select English (US) Keyboard. I noticed that some language still can't use the dictation yet.

    Just found it! Had selected a Dutch keyboard, and Dutch isn't supported by Siri. With the English keyboard it works.
    Thanks! ;)

    I'm not sure if this is mentioned somewhere, but I figured out that if you want a carriage return, you can say "new line".
