Siri network has been down again as it experiences an extended outage. When iPhone 4S users try to activate Siri and ask a question or say a command, Siri responds back with, “There’s something wrong, and i can’t answer your question right now. Please try again in a little while.”
Apple has asknowledged that the problem is due to iCloud server overload but not necessarily Siri servers. The longer Apple takes to fix this problem, the more irate and dissatisfied customers are becoming. In the mean time, several user say that resetting all settings is a workaround that has worked for them. The problem is heterogeneous and it’s not a one-fix-fits-all.
This is extremely frustrating. In just one month many people have become ‘addicted” to sending text messages and email responses by voice — which is very nice when it works — but really aggravating when it doesn’t. See what technology does to us? A month ago we didn’t know what Siri was, and now we don’t know how to live without her.
Keep in mind, as Apple will remind you, Siri is still in Beta Status:
So what is the best solution to the problem? “Reset all settings” may work to get Siri working again for some people, but it’s not a good option. You have to setup your iPhone again as if it were brand new and restore all your photos and data from iCloud, which is very time consuming even on WiFi. If you know fo an easier way to reset Siri with out resetting the entire phone please share your experience.
