Hi,

I've just updated to iPhone 4S and when I set it up I pressed 'restore from iTunes' but I then realised this was an old backup because I'd downloaded iOS 5 a few days earlier and changed it to back up in iCloud. So, I decided to restore and start the process again.

For some reason, this prompted a download of iOS 5 (despite the fact the 4S has it pre-installed), so I waited for that and then it restored the phone completely, this time to the correct backup. I then start playing with the phone and go to have a go on Siri but it is nowhere to be found. When you hold down the Home button it brings up the old Voice Control menu?

Any idea what's happened, why and how I can fix it?

Thanks in advance.

Turns out I didn't have it turned on. For some reason it's automatically on when you first setup your iPhone but when you restore it it's turned off...

I have a friend who just got a new 4s today from AT&T and we can't find
SIRI. When you hold the home button we just get the old function for voice control. I can't find it in the settings anywhere. Please help!

Siri shows up for me under Settings > General > Siri

It's the 4th item down under "General." It has its own "block" right under "About", "Software Update" and "Usage".
