    I have my WP 8.1 in russian language and Spanish regin, and I found that althugh Cortana is not available for me, it's still gathering information about me and sending it somewhere!! Interesting, eh? What is the purpose of that Cortana listener if I don't have any benefit of it?? Can somebody explain?? (pic is attached)

    Found Cortana gathering information on my Lumia 620. I had never enabled US region, and my phone is constantly in India region even after upgrading to WP8.1 developer preview.

    Cortana works as TellMe when outside unsupported region. You still have voice commands available and that requires internet connectivity.
