    I upgraded to 8.1 successfully but I have no Cortana on my Nokia 928. What up with that?

    Did you install both updates? After installing the first, go to the update section of your phone and search again. Another update should be available

    I've checked a few times but no other updates are available. I seem to have all other features, just no Cortana. I checked my region and it is US eastern time zone. No avail.

    go to the apps and cortana is an app you need to open cortana from the app before it works with the search button

    So much for being the early adopter. A bug in update Im guessing. Unfortunately no one to contact to resolve.

    I don't have an app called cortana under all my apps. Am I looking in the wrong area?

    make sure your settings are as follows:
    Language:
    English (United States) ****
    region:
    United States, English (United States)
    speech:
    English (United States)

    *** It is not correct if it is just "English", it has to be "English (United States)". On my phone the language was displaying only "English". I pressed it and there were two languages listed: English UK and English US. I dragged the US, which was below, to the top so it was prioritized and made a soft reset and it worked. Hopefully it will work for you too.

    I still can't get mine to work. Even after a soft reset, my phone still refuses to display my language as English (United States). Any ideas what's up?

    Make sure you have downloaded and installed the US language pack.

    Thanks for the response. I've done that. All other language-related bits and bobs are set to USA. It's just language that's English. I have put English USA at the top of the list (English UK) is underneath but still, no luck.

    I'm wondering if it's some weird bug as both languages are English, just one is US one is UK. I've tried adding another language so I can delete the UK language, but when the phone restarts, it's in the new language (which I can't understand!) even if English (US) is at the top of the list. Very annoying.
