Use Siri to make a call even if the phone is locked

Siri I wrote a post before about how you can access apps directly from notification on iOS.  Well another little trick is you can use Siri to make a call, without having to unlock your phone.  All you need to do is activate siri and say "Phone Craig".  If you had a Craig in your contacts then it would phone them.

Even if you didn't know any names in someones address book you can tell Siri to call then reel off a phone number. 

This was handy as it won me a bet as I said I could use their phone to make a call even if they had the phone locked.

I am always interested in feedback so please feel free to add any comments, or you can mail me  here.  If you would like to submit a quick tip  with full credit and links back to your site then also feel free to contact me.
