    I called AppleCare because Siri was only working aboiut 10% of the time. The rest was "I'm sorry, I'm having trouble connecting to the network." Systemwide dictation was also not working.

    The fix they suggested (from a memo just distributed internally at AppleCare today). In fact, they emailed this to me afterwards--

    Go to Settings > General > Siri, and turn Siri off, then wait a few seconds
    Go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Your phone will take a few seconds to reboot
    Go to Settings > General > Siri, and turn Siri back on, then wait a few seconds

    It should work.

    When the Siri servers are malfunctioning, clogged up, or just down, you can reset your network settings a million times and its still not going to work.

    Helpful comment. Maybe. If so, feel free not to follow Apple's advice. I found it helpful and it worked for me. And it's still working.

    There is no maybe about it. What aphexacid said is completely true.

    Right. And when the Internet is down, it won't work either. But there is apparently a device-based aspect to this as well. That's the point of this. It's not a magic cure-all.

    If Siri is not working:
    "You're saying it wrong" :D
