When you use your voice to ask to have a phone call made, you are using Siri. I also don’t know if you can get by without buying some kind of a data package. I was always told that you had to have something, good luck.

I’ll state the question again


Can I make a  call on the I phone using my voice without using Siri. 

Can I just tell the phone to call a numberSSS

If you have a WiFi connection then you can use it through the WiFi.

Well, No.  I am more interested in using the phone as a cell phone and not a smart phone.  I don’t want  to pay for a data pack which I would hardly ever want to use.

I just do not like the idea  of having to  be on line to use a phone.

Yes, I have a basic cell phone but a smart phone may have some additional features I can use without having to have a data package.

if your thinking of getting a new phone, and want to use Siri, you may want to lern how to spell the name.


it's not, S e r i,  it's, S I r i.

just like yu would want folks to spell your name correctly.

As usual, I’m  thinking   about getting a new phone; well, a new used phone.

Is it true that in order to dictate a text message, I have to be online with Seri?

Also can I use voice commands to make calls without being online with Seri?

I’m thinking about getting an I phone 6 or 7.
