    If you have 8.1 and cyan all you have to do is 3 simple steps

    Change keyboard to usa English
    Change language to usa English
    Change region to usa

    That's it...simple each of these 3 steps will do a restart.you cant change all 3 then restart the phone. You need to do it one at a time.

    Also make sure the American changes is above the English. For instance on keyboard

    English (united states)
    English (united kingdom)

    Otherwise it wont work and when you change to American language your phone will download the extra settings so let that happens.

    Hope that helps

    But if you change Region to USA doesn't that affect your time, weather app and so on to not co-ordinate with the actual country you live in??

    The only problem I've ever had with he region change is that it doesn't recognize my credit card... So I have to change my region back whenever I want to pay for an app.

    You can set the time to your country mannually and you can also set the region of the weather app manually.
