    No Cortana on HTC 8S, but you could only enable it anyway if you set your phone language to English (US). I don't know about your phone, but mine only came with English (UK), so it's not going to work. (I'm with a European carrier.)

    BTW: the HTC app with the giant clock on my phone doesn't work if you enable background images. Does 8X behave like that as well?

    Unfortunately, HTC has been having problems with the Windows Phone platform, support-wise, for years. Hopefully it will change in the near future, but no Cortana for the time being, it seems.

    What about the HTC app? Did you manage to get it to work with a Start screen background?

    This should get stickied.

    HTC ships the 8x in europe without English US language in the ROM. Basically all english languages are available as phone language, except for US. (Australia, singapore and UK work fine here). I don't think there is a particulair reason for it, but I think we don't have to expect HTC is going to change this (soon, if ever).
    Looks like we're stuck without cortana for (ever)(now).

    All the US 8x models are branded and thus carry a different ROM.

    Oh God... This is just another reason for me to hate on HTC.
    I cannot get Cortana no matter what on Earth I'm doing.
    Perhaps people with more knowledge can enlighten us?

    Same here for Cortana. I hate such region specifics.

    Eduardopol, was your HTC 8X bought in Europe? Everyone else with an 8X seems to be getting nowhere with getting Cortana - can you post the exact steps you took?

    Exactly, my htc 8x is from Australia and the US Language can not be used as phone language!

    I can confirm, no Cortana on 8X that was bought in Europe. All region and language options switched to US. UK still stays in Languages menu (in second place) - cannot be deleted. After restart no Cortana under apps and it cannot be turned on in settings. After 'hard reset' no option available for English (United States).

    This seems to confirm the info about the HTC 8X Europe ROM not being able to set English (US) as the phone language.

    Tap the search button, write Cortana. It should display "Cortana settings" in suggestions.

    To clear the fog...
    Because hTC is ran by incompetents:
    They "forgot" to add English (United States) in the ROM.
    Just have a hard-reset and see it yourself. There are all other languages (polski, deutsch, espanol all ******* English) but US English.
    Way to go HTC.

    as I said, a US branded ROM (of course) do support US language settings. Howeverm the WWE Unbranded rom does not (since it never shipped unbranded in the US).

    If please include if your HTC is branded if you choose to reply. :-) thanks.

    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 an 8X bought from 3 in the UK, I'm experiencing exactly the same. English US shows up but cannot remove English UK, all steps were followed correctly but still no Cortana, the only thing I haven't tried is the hard reset but I'm not going to bother.
