    Nope, I got it. Did you change language and speech language to English (US)?

    Did you change it before or after the update?

    And change region language etc to U.S.

    Also after the update make sure your phone has the right time and date.
    My phones time and date wasn't correct, that's why i could'nt use cortana properly.

    I'm from The Netherlands and got all my settings on U.S. long before the update.
    It works fine for me.
    Had to change the time and date because they where off after the update but once i canged it, it worked perfectly.

    If you have multiple languages installed, you also need to ensure that you move "English (United States)" to be first.

    I simply don't get it..everything should be set. However it simply isn't there. In the language setting I see UK and USA. But I can't delete UK...

    Don't delete UK, hold the US. Select Move up, and restart phone, it should then download the required files. That's what I'm attempting now.

    make sure you have AMERICAN LANGUAGE & SPEECH & region
    Make sure your time & date is correct
    Make sure you "enable" cortana

    that should work

    I did a hard reset, choose US, then when going to Cortana she would say she doesn't speak French. I then downloaded the US language and voila. ^^
    Too bad they didn't put it even for non US because she understands everything I say to her even though I have to speak English. :(

    EDIT: I have my current time and Cortana is working wonderfully. Am I missing something ?

    Upgraded, updated all apps, changed to US in Lanugage, Keyboard, Time and Date, & Region. Turned off Location. Restarted and upgaded as the phone asked me to do so (2 times I remember). And bam! Cortana is there. Changed every setting back to India. Working perfectly.
