Stupid job! The first thing I have to do with my new phone is sit on conference calls with it!

FUCK!

So when I hold down the Home Button, I just get regular Voice Control. Is there something I'm missing?
Same thing happened to me, but I found that Siri had been disabled by default for some reason. If you go into Settings->General->Siri, you can enable it there.
 
One odd thing I've noticed is that the UK Siri does a much better job of understanding me even though I'm from the US! Too bad I can't use the UK Siri for directions.

Woz pays for his iPhone?
Last time this came up (news stories about him camping in front of an Apple Store for an iDevice... iPad in that case, I think) it was revealed that he gets a complimentary "thank you for co-founding the company" device from the board whenever he wants one, but he prefers to actually go down and buy them for his family. He does accept a complimentary device for himself, though.

Yeah he said he's had the 4S for a year now
 
Telus just emailed me to say they shipped my 4S yesterday and gave me a Purolator tracking number. Latest on Purolator's website says the package left Toronto at 7pm last night, so I assume I should get it today!

I hate surprises, but this was very welcome. I'd have been relieved just to know I was getting the phone on a specific date, even if they'd missed release day.

I dont doubt it, but its weird thinking they had an A5 in the iphone before the ipad2 was even released.
This CNN article seems to indicate otherwise.

Wozniak acknowledged that he could have easily made one phone call to Apple and gotten the phone he's waiting in line for, but he didn't. He has yet to play with an iPhone 4S or its Siri voice-controlled assistant. He has said previously that he does not ask colleagues about products in development because he does not want to ruin the surprise for himself.

The response of Siri is that it can#t help me out with maps, traffic or directions.

I also have trouble asking Siri to tell conversions. I always get the response that it doesn't understand what I mean.
Sorry, but I'm going to have to agree with Siri on this one. What does 'tell conversations' mean?

Really? He's still on the payroll, so I guess?
Years ago I saw something indicating he remained on the payroll just to keep the healthcare plan. Not sure if it's still true.

OUR PHONES ARE TOUCHING!! I'm going to be pissed if this doesnt come here today. I live one hour from mount hope. Had to google where that was. lol It's basically Hamilton.

No estimated arrival yet. The monday arrival from before is gone.
Arrival got changed to monday for me last night like it seems to have for several people in Canada. Checked this morning and it's back to today! It's evidently on the truck and out for delivery!

I request everyone with AT&T please do a speed test and post results on here. Wondering if the HSPA+ is bullshit or actually improves speeds.
I'm on Verizon, so it shouldn't matter, but what's a good site/app to do speed tests from mobile phones?

he wrote conversions, not conversations. i'm assuming he means asking siri to convert 10 pounds into kilograms (or something similar).

Planning on it. My girlfriend will still have a 3s.. We'll be out and about this evening and I'll do some tests with both phones in various places and report back. (Seattle area)
 
This device is so snappy and smooth. Everything about it just works so incredibly well. I was an idiot for making the Droid my first smart phone when it came out.
 
Alright did AT&T fuck me? They didn't sell Applecare+ at the store but said I could pick it up at Apple after. In my half awake state I said its fine I'll pick it up after and they activated the phone. Should I raise hell with customer service now if I can't add Applecare+?
