    I've asked a few times for Siri to tell me "What time is it?" and it's worked fine.

    Now if I try it as of yesterday, it says something like "I'm sorry, I don't know what the time is in 7-9 Somewhere Street" (where somewhere street is my approximate location.

    Weird that it's detecting my location all of a sudden.

    Anyone else experience this?

    Yup, have the same problem.

    If i wanna know the time i have to say what time is it in london.

    I think it's a problem with Siri in UK

    Hmm. It was working though so I guess we should be thankful they're doing something to Siri in the UK... even if they're just breaking it.

    It was working fine a week or so ago.

    Shame as it's quite useful when I'm wrapped up at 6 in a morning waiting for a train on a freezing station and don't want to have to get my phone out.

    Happens to me in Canada too. You'd think it could work out what city your in.

    Just a thought - try enabling timeZones in settings - I have mine disabled - to save battery life.
