Siri issues...

I just tried Siri for the first time having the third-generation iPad with the IOS 6 upgrade. I started by asking Siri for the phone number of a local restaurant. Siri responses saying that I cannot place a call on this device but I can make of face time call. Why won't Siri just simply give me the phone number? I don't have a late model iPhone so Siri is new to me. I suppose if I had a newer iPhone, Siri would make the call for me rather than just give me the phone number?

So am I expecting too much from Siri?

Hi skallal,
Any restaurant listed, also has a phone number attached, just lightly slide the one you chose to the left.

I hope that helps

Ah, please enjoy your meal...

Chas, I don't get a list. All I get is a message from Siri saying I can't place a call on this device. What list are you talking about?

It all depends on what you ask and how you ask.

Ask Siri for details of that restaurant , it should then put up its details on the screen.

If you ask " where is the nearest (restaurant)" it will bring up a list, click the restaurant you want, and it will give you details of said restaurant.
