    Default Where's Siri?
    So i got an iPhone 4s and I can't find any settings to activate Siri. I've tried holding the home button but voice control is the only thing that shows up. Has anybody had this problem or know what I should do?

    Not trying to make anybody look dumb here, but just verifying, did you buy this phone used and/or off somebody besides a retail store? If so, did you ensure it's not an iPhone 4.

    No I bought it brand new from the sprint store, and I've searched all through the setting multiple times and I haven't seen anything that says Siri.

    It should be in settings>general>Siri and when u get a new device it is already activated when u turn on the device. Ur box will also have 4S on it to. But sprint may have gave u a 4 instead of a 4S. I would take it in or look at ur reciept.

    Can you even get the 4 on Sprint? They didn't originally offer it so I can't see why they'd make an older model for a different carrier when a newer one comes out.
    Can you post your model number? To find it, go to Settings > General > About.

    Also, if you don't have much data on it yet, try restoring it in iTunes and set it up as a new device. Before doing this, definitely back it up so that you can restore from backup later to recover your data.

    Another question. Did you have any Siri options during the initial setup process?

    Yea sprint offers the 4 and 4S I would not do a restore. It may not come back on if it has some hardware damage from the factory. And with it being new u should not have to worry about it. Take it to sprint. Another way to tell is the black bars on the side there are 4 black bars to help with the service
