    I've read and watch a video about the raise to speak feature on the 4S however even though it's turned on, it does not work on my wife's iPhone 4S.

    Ideas, maybe it's something we're not doing?

    Seems to be a little erratic at times
    But it does work on mine

    If it doesn't work at all... see the Genius Bar

    I had it working when I first got the phone, but now it seems to have quit working on mine...not too annoying yet but it would be nice to start using it!

    It worked for me sometimes and sometimes it didn't/ It kinda depended on how fast I wake my phone from standby. Like if I put it to standby now and wake it 2 seconds later, it won't work.

    I disabled it, cause I never remember to raise the phone when using Siri.

    Like most women I know, Siri seems to operate on her own terms. ;)

    Seriously, I've seen this as well. As noble an attempt as it is, Siri needs some work. Works great at times, useless at others. Success percentage goes down dramatically if you're trying to demo the functionality to others. lol

    Make sure your ear covers the proximity sensor.

    I use mine every day...especially while driving. I have had some days it did not work but I think it's a connection problem not a phone problem. Remember it's still a beta and not actually the finished product yet :apple:

    yeah, it seems like I have to rather quickly and forcibly raise the phone to my ear to get it to register... so I don't think its just a proximity thing

    Yep

    Lift the phone quickly to your ear....it's kind of a knack, but you'll get it.

    Same here. I've found that there's a certain motion you have to capture.
