One funny tidbit is that I have never gotten my Siri to work and have always blamed my husband for being the first to use Siri and throwing off the voice recognition. It turns out I've never enabled Siri in the two years I've owned the phone. It always appeared as if it was working as Siri would respond, but instead of doing what I asked, Siri would randomly start calling someone I rarely talked to or play a Bruce Springsteen song. I thought it didn't recognize my voice and that Siri was junk. My brother uses his Siri all the time which would drive me crazy since mine didn't work. Many apologies are due tonight!
Also, I will never enable emoji characters. That should be considered a tip on how to turn them off.
