Just for clarity, you don't need to have Siri completely turned off.
You just need to have it disabled while the device is locked. There's a setting for that.
That's good to know. Is that setting enabled by default?

Siri is enabled while locked by default. This is why there was so much media hype over the issue.

I believe Apple has stated that it will be disabled by default in a future software update.

Yep. Picking it up in a bit, even if I don't expect a great need for it. Can't pass up the $20 discount!

I installed it on my Torch last night - so far pretty impressed, and it should only get better as it "learns" my voice.

Will probably install it on the wife's Torch later this evening.

By the way, you can disable the advertising "tagline" it inserts into emails and text messages it sends, which would look pretty unprofessional if it was in my business emails! Haven't found a way to disable the "posted by Vlingo" tagline when you use it for FaceBook status updates though. I'd think RIM wouldn't appreciate that one, as it seems to trump and replace the "Posted by BlackBerry" one that's normally inserted.

I've installed Vlingo (free) on my Bold 9900 and aside from some glitch due to my bad pronunciation of English words, french been my main language. It works well!

Another colleague of mind used a similar app on his Samsung-Android device and it was quite amazing! Of course his English was way better than mine :p

Gonna have to get my other colleague with his Iphone 4 to test Siri for me.
