    Here's how I made it work, first change region and language to US then restart. After that move up English US in language settings(u can do so by pressing and holding on it).
    Now restart again then u will get a notification for 22 mb update(if not check for updates) then the usual system update stuff will comes like spinning gear. Once that is done and phone reboots go to app list and u will find cortana.

    Go to settings -> then swipe left to go from system -> applications
    Cortana should be there at the top if you did everything right. Then turn her "ON" d:

    Hello,
    First check if you've changed your region to the US and change your phone and speech languages to English(US). Then do a soft reset and go to ssettings---->>applications. You would find Cortana there. Just activate it.

    And yes, it is available for 520 and I am using it right now and I am not from the US

    You don't really have to change the time zone. I have it on UTC +05:30, India and still have a fully functional Cortana.

    You can't. Cortana only works when your phone is set to US. Follow the instructions above.

    Doesn't matter what i do, i can't get Cortana to work. All set to US English; speech, phone language, keyboard, all. Did tons of resets, soft resets, nothing. Checked for updates, up to date.

    Well, my english accent is really bad anyways so I think i'm going to wait until it gets released for spanish speaker countries :(

    What phone do you have? I heard that HTC phones are unable to run Cortana.

    Change the settings back to normal. Delete United States language then add it back. It will reboot. After that change the region to United states and select match phone language. It will ask to reboot again. After the reboot Cortana should come. Trust me, the same problem happened to me too.

    I have a Lumia 925, Argentina variant, operator-free.

    If I do a hard reset, it won't let me choose English (United States), the closest option is English (United Kingdom), so I had to select that. After the setup I set all to US english, keyboard , speech, etc, but there's no way to force the phone language to US engish. It wont let me remove the UK english, even if US english is installed and above it. The phone language won't leave UK english, even if I force the US english in the region settings, it wont quit using the US one.

    It's just so weird...

    PD:

    I just found also have my problem, check: http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...-language.html
