Okay, I'm obviously not using Siri correctly.

I was just taking a walk. As often happens, I think of things I want/need to do when I get back. So I get Siri's attention and ask her to "When I get back home, remind me to check ____ and do ____." To which she replies "Okay, your reminder is set." And of course after I'm home awhile I realize she hasn't reminded me of anything. But if I open Reminders, there it is sitting there. FWIW, I rarely use Reminders, so it's buried in my "Unused Apple Apps" folder on my phone. Regardless, can't I get Siri to get my attention and remind me audibly or is that asking too much?

my Siri made reminders work but I've only ever set them by time not location based.

Did you check if you have location services turned on for the Reminders app?

Hey Siri, remind yourself to check my Reminders and let me know if there's anything you're forgetting to tell me.

I usually tell Siri to set an alarm for something, eg, "Hey Siri, set alarm to call John at 8pm"

I would think you have to have your location turned on so it knows when you are home.

My "home" based reminders work great. Make sure location services is active for reminders, and make sure you have identified "home" in your contact card.

Do you have your home address in Contacts?

My name is in Contacts twice, though I don't think it needs to me.

One of the entries is RAMd®d (no, not really).....me

I think the 'me' part is iOS ok, we got you.

Anyway, Siri has to know where you hang your hat, cause anywhere you hang your hat...

Try hard resetting the iPhone. Quickly-Press and Release Volume Up, then Volume Down. then Press and HOLD the sleep/wake button on the right side until you see the Apple logo (do not do anything when you see "Slide to Power Off"--just keep holding down.
