    I am trying to use the Voice Recognition on my iPhone 4S for texting. After I speak, the 3 purple bubbles show up as if they're processing what I just said and then they go away and nothing is written in the text field.

    Siri still recognizes my voice just fine and I have already tried to update my iPhone, restart my iPhone, and restore my iPhone and nothing is working.

    I greatly appreciate any and all assistance in this matter.

    I have this happen a lot when I either have a weak signal, if apples servers are being crappy or if I am in an extremely loud environment (like walking along a busy road and an 18-wheeler just drove past as I was saying something).

    There has been entire days that it did that....so that was on apples side.

    You're not alone. That service died about 90 minutes ago for me, and a few others as well. There's a thread in the main iPhone forum about it. Siri works fine, dictation doesn't. The general consensus is that it's server-side, and the best thing to do for now is wait it out.

    Me too

    Siri works fine, voice dictation using the microphone icon does not. (My 4s is on ATT).

    Here too. Ironically we're both in Columbus, Ohio. Could be our area or a link to their servers?

    Well as long as its server-side/connection issues, I don't mind as much anymore. I was just worried that it was my iPhone.

    While I'm not worried it is annoying. Mine seems to work only about 30% of the time the past two weeks.

    Voice Recognition

    I tried turning Siri off then back on and the voice recognition started working again. Not sure if coincidence but worth a try.

    Here in UK, VR not working

    New phone, worked fine for a few days, now nothing. The symbols come up, and then it ‘thinks’ but then leaves a blank. Does this with texts, messages and tweets. Any ideas gratefully received

    I live in Rochester NY. Siri works, dictation doesn't

    PS Just read the posts above, disabled then re-enabled Suri. Voice-to-text working again.
