Re: i phone questions


Hi everyone:

If you want to learn all about the iPhone and the iPad, I urge you to look up the Hadley institute videos on YouTube. They have been very helpful to me.

Hi Group,

Once you have your call recipients in your contacts, it's easier to use Siri.  However, you can tell Siri to call a number verbatim as in "Hey Siri - Call 1 408 752 8052.  If you do it clearly enough, it will work.

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.
