iPhone Siri

In keeping with my love of technology and gadgets, I scoured our local buy, sell, trade, websites for bargains to upgrade my cell phone. Was using an old flip top LG. Went from that to a Blackberry, now through much wheeling and dealing, got my hands on an iPhone 4s and Siri talks to me.


Chloe convinced me to get a BlackBerry and I did, but have always wondered what the fuss was about over the iPhone.
After buying and selling a few BlackBerry’s, adding a bit of profit each time, I’ve managed to go from a Bold 9900 to the iPhone 4s for just $20. And so far, I’m loving it.
For those who don’t know, Siri is the voice activated thing that you speak to and it ‘understands’ you and does what you ask. I’m having problems with it understanding my mixed up accent though. I set it for English English, it got mixed up, set it for Canadian English, same thing. Set it for American English, it’s better but, still messes up, so, I guess it’s back to typing for me.
I said to Siri the other day, “I think you are wonderful.” Her reply: “I am only here to serve you.” Freaky eh!

  1. OMG, you have a Chloe too! Mine’s 20yrs old and good at it, and talked me into an iphone for her and for me. Now we can text eachother for free! Oh, and, I love Siri, but the British guy voice. I find the American women’s voice way too shrill. And I can speak British so Siri understands me…lol.

  2. Sounds like the freaky voice that starts blabbing in my car when I want to adjust my mirror and push the Onstar button by mistake. Doesn’t matter that I never activated the damn thing and don’t want it. I’m techo incompetent but I don’t mind my old flip phone. Cheers to you!

  3. omg…I am thinking of getting an IPhone ..well actually I have one and now hubby thinks the whole family should go for Apple..hmmmmmm…great stuff here, I am going to keep this in mind…Mine is here

  4. how’s the texting? I love my BB9900 because I am a huge texter. I text as fast as I type on BB the main reason why I am scared about moving to an Iphone. 20 BUCKS!!! That’s major!!! Kudos!!! 🙂

    Loved your High Tech coming out of your cave 55

  6. LMAO I think I have something like that on my samsung galaxy, but I prefer typing. My phone talking back is scary.

  7. Ha, I have Siri too. As far as I can see, she is always ‘mixed up.’ I haven’t beckoned her in a while. Actually, she has appeared sometimes unexpectedly…perhaps bored from waiting me to summon her. But I just quickly put her back in her place again.

  8. when my phone starts to understand me and talk back, i get a little scared….smiles…sounds like you worked a great deal though…that is cool…my phone is the cheap bottom of the line deal…not flip though…
