    Every time I've tried to use Siri for the last 1.5 to 2 weeks I've gotten the same: "I'm really sorry but I can't take requests right now. Please try again later." I have turned Siri off. Done several hard resets. My software is up to date. I'm really frustrated. Any help would be much appreciated.

    When I say I have turned Siri off I mean off and then on again after a reset.

    Any difference between attempts on 3G vs WiFi?

    Are you using the iPhone 4 or 4s ?

    Reason why i ask is that if your using the 4 then you can enter ifile and delete the com.apple.assistant.plist file.

    same here. siri is always sorry, but nothing ever changes about its behavior. according to my parents this is not real sorry.

    OP i'll be the first person to NOT poke fun at siri again. I've been having trouble too recently. I was on the couch last night, almost silent, and i just got it spinning with nothing happening then the "im sorry... blah blah blah"

    I tried just text dictation, just tried one word tests and it couldn't even get something that simple. I just got the 3 purple dots and then they went away.

    This started about a week ago for me. Pretty annoying.

    Thanks. I actually got a few answers out of her over the weekend but I still get the "I'm sorry I can't take requests right now..." 90% of the time.

    Even though I have a pretty posh English accent, I still have to speak to Siri like it's an individual whos head has recently caved in, just so it understands me clearly.

    i would like to know why we can't just use the old voice dictation, at least as a fallback.
