    I think they need to fix this. In Ohio it kind of sucks

    That sucks. She was down all day Saturday for me in Texas, but back on Sat around 9 pm. I hope she isn't down again here today.

    The annoying part is I was on a long drive on Sat and had planed to use Siri to follow up on some texts but I couldn't use her at all.

    Yes, being deprived of something you don't need and didn't know existed until 2 days ago is outrageous!

    Don't worry... everything will be fine once all 4 million people who activated their 4S's yesterday get done asking Siri to open the pod bay doors and for advice on where to dump a dead body.

    I'm in Ohio and Siri has been working great for me today. In fact, the only time I've had an issue was Friday night when EVERYONE was hammering the servers.

    Nothing wrong with expecting to get what you paid for.

    It's equally outrageous for people to get upset about this as it is for Apple to not have the feature up and running since they made such a big deal about how magical it was.

    Maybe it wouldnt be so congested if everyone wouldnt be wasting resources by asking Siri "Beam me up".

    BTW. You should ask her to "Beam me up".

    It may not be down. Try turning Siri off, then rebooting, then turning Siri on again.

    I had a problem with Siri connecting to the network and those steps fixed it.

    This was mere coincidence. You can get the same effect by simply waiting a minute or two (without restarting Siri) and getting lucky that the network is available. Rebooting doesn't change the fact that millions of people were sitting around asking Siri all sorts of ridiculous questions yesterday - come Monday when most of these people are back to work, Siri will be more available.

    Yea - tell that to millions of iPhone 4S owners who didn't know it was beta because they aren't "techies" and don't read every article...

    Maybe "Siri - go down on me"

    "Will you marry me?" usually works in real life.

    I don't think it was coincidence because I wasn't able to use Siri at all for the whole day. Did what I described, and it worked, and has been working since then, without fail. I don't think it was a network issue.

    I am in Texas as well but she has been working like a charm. I am on Verizon; maybe that's why. :D

    I think Apple has to reduce the online part of Siri.... why can't they deploy the engine (at least the parts that don't need internet access) to the iPhone locally?

    It's just like web vs apps... for webpages you need to load everything incl. the user interface every time you go to the website, i.e. slower. It's fine for desktops/laptops but terrible for mobile phones. That's why apps prevail.
