So today we will be helping you to turn ON this option if the raise to speak is not working in your iphone 4s or iphone 5. You just need to follow the following steps:

But we realize something it could also become disturbing factor for you. when you will be listening a song or any video without headset and if you bring you phone to the ear it will enable the siri which could disturb you. So you could want to disable this option.
