    I think Nokia 1520 in India is not receiving Denim Update till now is due to Hey Cortana Feature. Hey Cortana requires you to set your current region and speech language region to be same. Which is not yet possible for India. In India Cortana is released as alpha version and it requires you to set the current speech language to English( United Kingdom). But Hey cortana also requires you to set your current phone region to same as that of speech. If you make it same then we cant buy apps from the store and locale of system will be different and phone features may vary. May be Microsoft is working....

    I dont know whether other regions where cortana alpha version is released requires the same settings to be done. Anyways i am just waiting for Microsoft to release it soon for 1520. This has been a long wait for the people in India for any update released till now right from launch of windows phone 8. We did get the update faster than all other regions.

    Its not due to Hey Cortana

    They can disable that feature in denim if country is not supported

    Even I am eagerly waiting since many days and now windows 10 preview coming today

    I am in dilemma whether to update denim and then W10 or W10 and denim ๐Ÿ˜

    What a shame Microsoft if this is the case why the rollout has been delayed in India for Lumia 1520. However, if this is the reason then why Lumia 520 received the update, don't think this is the reason.

    People would accept valid reasons if given to them but none from Microsoft has come out so far explaining so far the reason for delay.

    Highly disappointed and frustrating experience.

    It hope a and wish someone from Microsoft reads these comments and so something about it

    Hey Cortana is an important feature of Lumia Denim Update. May be you don't need it but i dont think Microsoft will disable it.

    Whatever the reason is, Microsoft should at least provide the information about delay and declare the confirm release date/Week.
    How can they attract more customers if existing customers are frustrated. I know world is not going to end if I don't receive denim but after declaring the details of the update and when 1520 users from other part of the world receive it who are in fact carrier locked users and the users who are not carrier locked are deprived of it still.
    They can provide 10 directly now instead. :)

    Hey Cortana is an important feature of Lumia Denim Update. May be you don't need it but i dont think Microsoft will disable it.
    I agree its important feature but when cortana itself is not supported how can they enable it in denim ?
    Lumia 930 in UK got denim yesterday, UK is also listed under alpha version for Cortana as far as I remember
    What about Finland 1520 ? They do bot support cortana in their language yet they had denim update 2 months back

    I think you have not read my first post correctly. UK has alpha version but there is no need for them to change their speech or region to other as in India. Read my first post again. Hey Cortana has restrictions. I suppose you dont know Hey Cortana feature which is not Just cortana, Its a feature which you can use to search even when your phone is locked. Please search the WPCentral forum for detailed Hey Cortana feature.

    Nice logic but I don't think that's the reason. My Saudi 1520 got denim over a month ago. Microsoft doesn't support Cortana and hence even the 'Hey Cortana' feature for this variant but it still got the update. I just changed my region-language settings and am enjoying Hey Cortana.

    But since India has the alpha version of Cortana, you might even be right.

    I got Lumia Denim for My Lumia 630 Dual SIM before Official Release in India.

    If anyone want to try/get Lumia Denim update early before Official Release try this:
    (All WP8.1 Phones are not supported for W10 for Phones Tech Preview till date, so wait for your turn and then try)
    Be a Windows Insider, Download Windows Insider app and Sign In for Windows 10 Technical Preview.
    Then go to Phone Update Setting, hit Check for Update.

    It will show an Update "Performance and Stability Improvement".
    After Successfully Update, new msg window should appear with instruction of Successful Update and Windows 10 Technical Preview Next Update.

    It seems an Prerequisite Update to get Windows 10 Tech Preview, so There would be a chance that this is not Fine Tuned Lumia Denim Update
    SO,
    This would not be same to You, Please Do it at your own Risk!

    It's Fine Here.

    +1

    If you want Cortana and hey Cortana , you can change region and language settings and get it easily once it is updated to denim

    Denim roll out in India is very bad, even the lower models like 620, 720 etc are getting it since yesterday only. They don't support Hey Cortana at all due to lack of snapdragon 8XX SoC.

    He will not get Hey Cortana feature even after updating it to Denim in India unless he changes the settings to US region or UK

    Hi Rajmass,
    Today morning i've updated my 1520 to Denim. i don't see "Hey Cortona" feature in the settings. Let me know what settings you use??

    Cortana is disabled by default in countries where it is not supported, hence denim update in India will not get this feature

    But If you want, you can get it by doing this

    Change region, language, key board, speech to US language, restart your phone, enable location, make sure that you have good wifi and then open cortana once so that it will ask your preferences
    And try saying "Hey Cortana" with US accent, you will get it

    I've been using cortona for a long time. I am looking for the passive assistant feature ("hey cortona") without the need to press the search button...
