    Hi all,
    Since I want to download the Windows 8.1 Preview and take advantage of some of the new features wich is available in the US I entered US as the country and US English on my phone.
    But when I try to login it says i cannot connect. I also entered US as the region on my Microsoft account.
    I want to use features like Narrator.
    But I live in Europ and not the states.
    Any help is really apreciated many thanks!

    Go to settings and select date + time
    Cancel the set automatically to off
    And manually type the date and time same as the region you want (this is a windows phone bug) now your microsoft account will work.
    lemme know if it worked
    Cheers.
