    When I asked for Weather in Calgary, Alberta, the screen reads "What's the weather in Calgary, Alberta" and yet it shows me Eureka, Montana. Is there some kind of a setting in JB I have to change so that it will come back with weather in Calgary? This is driving me crazy since the phone shows it understand my command and come back with wrong information.

    Thank you.

    Since you're on JB, have you tried Google Now? Seems to work better than S Voice.

    I am new to Android (came from BlackBerry)... so, sorry for asking, is Google Now is built in to the phone or is it an app?

    Not sure if it is preinstalled on the S3. In the Play Store, it's called "Google Search."

    Honestly, S-Voice kinda sucks! I experience the same thing. Sometimes I speak a command and nothing happens. If you have Jelly Bean on your S3, it sounds like you've rooted your phone. The S3 comes out the box running Ice Cream...most of us are anxiously awaiting Jelly Bean. In Ice Cream, Google Now is not available. However, you can still access Google Search by pressing and holding the menu button and when the search screen pops up, tap the microphone, then you can speak various requests to the phone. Be sure to access Google Search from one of the homescreens, that way, you can select "help" for a tutorial on all the functions Google Search will perform.

    It is ironic that S voice actually show on my screen "What's the weather in Calgary, Alberta" but still come back with Eureka, Montana. I have no clue how S Voice is able to convert my voice in to texts with right spellings and such and then return something wayyyy off.

    Just for the hell of it I asked Google Voice on my Galaxy Nexus and it understood it right and gave the right answer, 30 degrees and clear.
