    So this is a weird one. My siri has a British accent during the initial launch when I hold the button. After the initial launch it then reverts back to the original us siri voice. In the general settings siri is set on the English United States. I have no clue how to fix this and I want to get rid of the British guy in the begining. Thanks for any help!

    You don't see that option because there isn't one. You can only change the language, and not the gender of Siri.

    Well actually siri never says whether it is male or female, but if you are referring to the tone is Siri, English (United States), that makes Siri sound like a female you can change the language to English (United Kingdom) which makes Siri sound more like a male.

    Try a soft reset. Hold the home and power key together until the apple logo appears on screen. If that fails, back everything up, and do a restore in iTunes.

    Incidentally I'm in the UK and have the Canadian voice for my Siri. I don't like the British male voice, the US one sounds awful, and the Australian one sounds bizarre. Of course these are my personal opinions and I'm sure others would disagree.

    Just so you know, the Canadian voice is the same as the US voice.
