    For the last couple days, voice dictation and Siri won't fuction, nor will any updates from the iTunes Store go past "waiting." Everything else functions, including Safari, both 3G and Wifi. I have turned the 4S off and back on to no avail. This is a replacement Apple gave me when my original broke, and I wonder if I'm experiencing the joy of "factory refurb."

    Anyone else have these issues or know a fix?

    Dictation hasn't been working on my 4S for a couple of days (Verizon), neither by cellular connection nor wifi. Likewise, it doesn't work on my iPad 3 (AT&T) neither cellular nor wifi. Also not working on my Mac Pro with Mountain Lion. I conclude that there is a problem with Apple's servers.

    It's got to be more than that. Every time an update pops on the App Store -- and yes, I can access and browse the App Store -- whatever app I'm trying to update remains forever in "waiting" status. Nothing seems to fix this. Should I do a restore?

    Reset network settings first maybe?

    I did nothing, dictation is now working fine on my Verizon 4s and AT&T iPad 3, and Mac Pro. I conclude that my issue was a server problem at Apple. For me, Siri never did stop working and I had no problem with iTunes.

    Retina display is a big givaway on the iPad 3. Did you enable Siri?

    Settings -> General -> Siri
