    Sari is decideing to go off on me at random times. I was in my room and had my phone out on my stand and it went off so I walked out of my room to get it and nothing was off her bumped it. Anyone have problems?? I really don't think it's a problem but I was just wondering.

    ETA: I'm learning disabled also.

    The tv has set mine off before when it is plugged in.

    It's probably because "Hey Siri" is on. When plugged in you can just say "hey Siri" and she will reply. I bet Siri is thinking it hears that phrase so it's going off. If you go into Settings>General>Siri>Allow Hey Siri, you can turn off that function.

    It has creeped me out more than once. One time the song I was listening to said "who are you?" And she said "Siri" .

    When it's plugged in and "Hey, Siri" is enabled it can get invoked by accident pretty easily. I tend to plug mine in to charge while playing a podcast through the phone's speakers and Siri will get invoked at least once a day by the audio coming from the phone itself. Pretty funny. No doubt this is something Apple needs to refine.

    I don't have much of an accent (unless you consider a bland Oregon accent an accent) and Siri often has trouble understanding the most basic commands I give her, so I'd suggest that the problem is with the software, not you :)
