    Hey guys,

    I'm trying to set a location based reminder for when I arrive at school tomorrow. When I tell Siri to remind me when I get to school, she says she can't do it. When I ask her where my school is she says she doesn't know and pulls up my contact card.

    I have already entered my school address in and labeled it as school, does anyone know why Siri won't allow me to create a reminder? I can use the reminders to create a notification manually but then what's the point of Siri? :p

    I'm having the same problem. I can't tell Siri to remind me to do stuff when I get to my daughter's school. I have to tell her to remind me when I get to the address or the name of the school, which ends up being frustrating because Siri either gets the address wrong or constantly confuses the school with a similarly named school 5 miles away.

    I tried entering the school as a contact, I tried entering it as my daughter's second address, I renamed the label for the address 'school', I even added the name of the school as her 'Company' and in the address for the school. Yet Siri just keeps saying that there's no school address for her and pulling up her contact information that (even more frustratingly) shows the school address right there on the screen.

    In it's current state, Siri is barely more than a bad parlor trick.

    Set the school up as a separate contact and name it the name of the school. Then ask Siri to remind you when you get to "Apple Middle School" or whatever it's called. I don't think Siri works with custom labels yet.
