Forum Question: How Does “Raise To Speak” Work?

I can’t seem to figure out how Siri’s Raise-to-Speak feature works. I raise the phone to my ear and speak, but Siri doesn’t respond. I’ve Googled it, but all I get are pre-release video leaks showing the option in settings. I can’t find examples of anyone using it. How exactly does it work?

    It works for me.
    First, I make sure I have that setting turned on.
    I raise the phone to my ear and wait until I hear the Siri musical tones.
    Then I speak and ask Siri a question.

    Does the phone need to be unlocked first?

      Nope. It does need to be not-asleep though.

    I had this same problem..and yes “Raise to talk” was turned on.
    I simply turned “Raise to talk” off, then turned it back on and it now works..

    I had the same issue with “Raise to Talk” not working. Maddening! I followed the tip by JamieScalie and it worked. i.e. Turn the “Raise to Talk” feature off (in Siri settings) and then turn it back on.
