    Did anyone else have Siri's voice change slightly? Even my girlfriend noticed it last night.

    I hadn't messed around with it for a day or so cause of work and such, but when I did her voice sounded much more robotic.

    She also pronounced things differently then she used to.

    Has anyone else noticed?

    Did you change Siri's language settings? I could be just imagining it, but when I was watching a demonstration video Siri sounded more depressed when the person selected English (Australia) instead of US :p

    I don't think they are all the same. I went to AT&T today, and the Siri on display sounded "younger" than mine...odd

    Just wait until the next iPhone comes, Siri will sound like an old woman who's had throat cancer, still smokes and lives with 20 cats.

    I noticed the depressed Siri too. It happened after I jailbreaked my phone.

    I thought I was crazy but I noticed this the other day too. SIRI has always sounded very robotic on my 4S, but the other day I asked her something and she responded in a very natural sounding, fluid response. I thought they were doing some upgrades, but it sounds like things are going backwards for you. Very odd!

    I don't know if I'm just imagining it, but Siri seems to understand me a lot more than he did when I first got my 4S, and seems to be giving more natural, fluid answers...

    You don't suppose the data signal quality could effect siri? Or even the load put on the device at the time?

    @ MasterHowl, I believe siri "learns" as you use it.

    Do you think she'd talk dirty to me about her cats?

    Since none of the answers are "stored" on the phone, you are getting a new batch of data every time you ask Siri something. So any changes in tone could be tweaks on apple's end I suppose. I noticed slight variations too, even with repeated answers. Sometimes Siri almost sounds happy or excited (like when I ask about the weather and it's nice out), sometimes it sounds confused or just simply robotic (which I thought would have been normal).

    If you stand under a radio tower, Siri eventually throws up on herself, slurs her speech, then passes out.
