    Just got my 4s and have been playing with siri. When I use Siri to send a text is there any way to change the settings and skip the confirmation step? I would like it to just send the message. Likewise if I do use the confirmation step why won't Siri read my message back to me aloud. The hands free is pointless if I have to look at the screen.

    No, you can't skip the confirmation step. I'd consider it a safety check, in case she types something wrong, you have a chance to correct it.

    Then can you get her to read the message back so I can actually confirm without looking at it?

    Yes, you can ask Siri to "read my message" and it will repeat what you just wrote. Here are a few decent tutorial videos - http://www.sirisource.com/videos/
