    I got iPhone 4S about 6 months ago. I know Siri is included in this device, but I have never used it. For what case do you use Siri for except for playing around?

    A lot. Mostly to set reminders and cal events. Often to send or reply to text messages as well. Once in a while to get directions.

    If you're jailbroken (For A5 devices the only jailbreak is for iOS 5.0.1) you can get Siri addons that can make Siri alot more helpful and useful. Siri is for sending messages, mail, getting notifications, etc. Siri is at your service.

    I have it read me messages while I drive in my earpeice. Otherwise I don't like how much slower it is for voice dialing compared to previous generations. No internet and it can't even call your phonebook contacts.

    Is there a tweak to turn her off for just that instead of her off completly.

    It's in Settings under General > Siri.

    I don't want to turn it off completly as I use it to read me text while I am driving. I knew that. I just want her to stop for my voice calling contacts.

    I don't think there is? Pretty sure there isn't.

    I'm pretty sure voice over does that. I'm not 100% sure though...

    Problem is, I think voice over uses the whole iOS system, so in other words, you can't set it to read your texts only, you have to use it for everything so anything you touch it will speak

    I know it can do that, I don't think it can do individual items either though. It would be very nice if Apple did that for older devices though.
