    I can't uninstall the phone's language (German), so maybe later I'll do a hard reset and start chatting with Cortana ...

    When I resetted my phone, the welcome screen let's me choose language however there is no English (United States)? Any ideas why?

    Now, I can't et any access to the store, even after switching the settings back to 'normal'. Might have to hard reset the phone earlier than expected :(

    Having the same problem on my HTC 8X as well. As far as I can tell, there is a distinction between the language used, the keyboard, the region and a separate "Phone language"....

    Same HTC 8X issue - can set keyboard, region and speech to English (US) but "Phone Language" stays as "English (UK) - no way to change it.

    So, this reminds me of installing Windows 8.1 Dev Preview over the summer. My copy of Windows 8 was initially set in the UK, and Windows 8.1 DP was only available for US copies (I was actually in the US at the time, which just served to frustrate me more). After changing every system setting, refreshing and reinstalling Windows 8, I still could not get it to work. It turned out that there is a registry value in Windows that specifies a region that can't be accessed except inside the registry. So my thought is that HTC has stopped whatever setting normally switches some registry value. Thus, we are stuck with a particular "Phone Language" even if that language isn't used anywhere else in the OS.

    So, registry time: go here [XAP][SOURCE] WP8 Registry Tools - xda-developers If you side load that, you should be able to find the registry value for this annoying "Phone Language" thing. Anyone want to try it before me so I don't brick me phone by mistake/by being an *****?

    I hope someone tries this to see if it works. I'm not doing it until it's proven to work.

    Apparently there's no hope for those with HTC 8X in Europe as the phone ships with a ROM where the US Phone Language is missing. I guess we'll have to wait until it's released properly (see here for more: http://forums.windowscentral.com/cor...ml#post2461294)

    I tried it, I feel ridiculous talking to a phone when there is no person on the other side. I asked cortana about 7 questions, she got 1 right. I know it's still beta, but I'm not impressed.

    It obviously was the accessibility problem to the Store from Microsoft's side. After hard resetting it seems to work again, but I haven't tried 'installing' Cortana.
