    I told Cortana to "say my name" and I got the web results of the Destiny's Child song "Say My Name". LOL

    I know MS is watching what we are saying to her (they said so at build) so hopefully if we ask cortana certain things enough, she'll give a reply instead of a bing search eventually.. I wonder how much of this is server side vs in the phone OS.. if they can add replies live on their end or if it requires a phone OS update.

    Same here, there is a setting that tells Cortana to call you by name but I still have not heard her do that.

    Ditto to the above...no success there. I too, got Destiny's Child as a search result...likewise, she also won't say the name of my wife, or other inner circle contacts...even, though, I tagged their nicknames as Dad, Mom, Wife, Brother, Sister etc. One thing is obvious, though...it WILL come. We need only at least wait for final release until some of these things are addressed. In the meantime, I hope she doesn't go rampant. LOL because she's definitely vulnerable to weirdness and instability right now :P

    I was reading a tweet that its serviced based. Someone was having problems with the natural language. Another suggested to reboot, but a MSFT employee, I believe, suggested he wait because they can fix it via its services. I'm assuming that they can almost do it instantly per se. If you have noticed, alot has improved since the initial release without updates.

    I tried what the last person said worked for them, asked "Who Am I?" but it didn't work. Does anyone else also have a delay between pushing the button and getting the tone to ask a question?

    I do. Sometimes its so bad I'll either exit out and sometimes it's so bad it's almost like it goes back to idle mode and I have to repeat myself.

    What phone are you on?

    Check your settings. First you have to tell Cortana your name in the settings.

    Click search button ---> Click hamburger icon top right of screen
    ---> Click Settings ---> Click My Name ---> enter your name ---> exit the app.

    Now ask Crotana your Name, Who am I, Who's your daddy, what ever you call you self.

    Works for me NL 925, Carrier T-Mobile.

    Enjoy.

    To get her to say your name you just have to say/type "Cortana what's my name"

    Cortana just used my name unprompted.

    I said thank you after a search, and she said "You're welcome, Spacey".

    Not sure how new this is...I don't thank Cortana as often as I should
