    I saw the Apple advert where the iphone owner asked Siri to call him by a certain name. Well, I always wanted to be called Buck. So, following the lead of the advert I asked to Siri to "Call me Buck". Siri asked "Okay, I will call you Book". I said " NO, call me Buck". Siri, decided enough was enough and said "Okay, I will call you *****".

    I didn't know that was in her vocabularly but she may have made an exception on my behalf.

    I decided to go back to Ed, as my name.

    If you go into contacts and select your name and edit the contact, in the "nickname" option type in "Buck" and siri will call you that from then on

    Or when you talk to Siri and what you said comes up wrong just highlight it and edit it to say what you meant. Help Siri learn

    Yes, we all know Apple doesn't list Siri as she. People still use though as there's nothing wrong with it.

    If you really want to be called Buck, you can go into the contact that was set up for yourself, and under nickname, type in "Buck". This is all Siri actually does when you tell her to call you something.


    And there goes reading fail for me. This was already recommended. Sorry! :eek:
