    Yeah, but you'll probably need to update the HTC hub...which most can't now :S

    I’m also experiencing the same problem with the European (UK) HTC-8x. I'm unable to change the "Phone Language" to English (US) to enable Cortana.

    I don't know whether you can flash to an HTC device...
    You can but it's not for the faint of heart or the non-tech savvy. The htc8x development section on xda-developers forum 8x by HTC Windows Phone Development - xda-developers is a place to start. As the stock Europe htc-8x rom is available to download I suppose the missing language files could be added from different rom and then flashed to the phone.

    Edited due to poor grammar.

    So there are three options right now for non-US/European HTC 8X I guess
    1. Have someone flash a "stock ROM" on it for you
    2. Wait until Cortana comes to Canada or UK (both seem to exist for non-US 8X)
    3. Buy a Nokia :)

    I'm from the UK and I have changed my settings to US following Do you want to enable Cortana outside the US? Here's how you do it | Windows Phone Central

    I don't have Cortana on my HTC 8X but I think the problem may be that the Store is currently unavailable and as Cortana is/has an "app" we cant install it at the moment because of this.

    Maybe?

    I have the same problem in Canada with my carrier. Changing the Phone Language is the critical step. A friend has an 8X with Rogers and he can change his Phone Language to English (United States) and therefore has Cortana. It's more a carrier issue than an HTC issue.

    I think that's the reason why we can't get Cortana is because we can't change the phone language to United States. I can get the rest changed over but not that one.

    I can change the phone language if I download an additional language, but cannot set to the United States :(

    ah man, this is a big disappointment! I love the form factor of my 8X but the sooner the 930 lands, the sooner i'm ditching this HTC. same deal as most, non-US 8X, can't delete local language and therefore no cortana for me...

    Please say you had to do something to get that working! I've got three columns enabled and a start background, but the tile refuses to show the time!

    Unlocked 8x from Rogers, Canada, no dice with Cortana. Wonder if Rogers has something in the ROM that prevents it even tho I've set everything to US English.
    I have a Bell 8X and the same problem. I've changed my language and region settings back and forth in numerous combinations and no dice. I normally keep my region as U.S.A. to get full Bing usability but nothing I've tried makes Cortana appear. Dang! Love the action center, though.

    Same here, Cortana is nowhere to be seen. A search for Cortana only brings web results, local has nothing.
    Can't switch the phone language even if region, speech and keyboard are all to English US.
    HTC 8x, Rogers, unlocked, now on Telus.
    Weird thing though: some app titles in Battery Saver are in french, even though they list in English in the app list...
    Phone may be due for a reset...rrrrrrrr

    There is no way to change the lang to US for all Europe customers of HTC 8X/8S (Maybe not only Europe) ... and there is no way to remove your default language (on install time) so even if you change the language to US part of our phones are still in the default (on install time) language ... so no Cortana for us! Hey Microsoft if you hear me .. where is your f.cking beta testers? You cannot ignore half of the world!

    Half of the world?
    how about 9/10ths of the world :(
    I still have faith that someone will deliver the phone language files and a possibility to add them...
