    Mail voice only.

    He sure has a lot to learn, he can't tell me about much.

    I asked for a Taxi and its US only, I asked for a restaurant and its US only, he comes back with "I can only look for businesses in the United States, bla bla bla..

    Requests for directions don't work, traffic does not work.

    Adding a reminder worked well..

    Oh well, if it was not in beta, i would be very disappointed...

    I can't believe that all the location stuff is US only - what a let down!

    Hmmmm, bit disappointing if many of the touted features are country specific.

    I’m sure there will be a few issues rearing there head over the next few days unfortunately.

    :eek: an eek says it all.

    Well as one of main reasons to buy an iPhone 4S this year - I'll probably hold off now tbh. That's a bit of a poor show. It should have been made clear that a lot of Siri's search features were US only.

    I understand they need to partner with a company in the UK to provide the nearby searches, but they seem to have turned off even more than they need to...

    'Do I need a jacket' - Sorry, I only search US businesses (huh?)
    'How do I get home' - Sorry, I only search US... surely it can do this, it has my address and maps works just fine?
    'Where am I' - Sorry, I only search US... surely it can just show a map with my current location?
