    I live in the UK, should I change my region to US? If so how do I?
    If you want to use Cortana, yeah. You can change it in Settings > Language+Region > Country/Region

    Can I just change it back after the update and still have Cortana?

    Also, it says "Restart phone" should I do that?

    Nope, to keep Cortana in the UK like myself, it has to stay as US Region till it gets released here.

    Yeah, restart your phone too, it has to apply the changes...

    Oh.. So lets say once 8.1 releases tomorrow, and I change my region back UK... What would happen?

    Do you mean I need to keep my region set as US until Cortana is official released next year?

    Your phone would ask to be restarted and afterwards Cortana wouldn't be there :(

    It shouldn't be that long before Cortana is released in the UK, it's the second place Cortana will land. But yes, to use Cortana your region will have to stay as US till it gets released here.

    Most likely 10am Redmond Time...so it's just a matter of figuring time zone differences for where you live...

    Actually, it could. :) Time is a very relative concept. The more you fixate on this the slower the time will pass for you. That being said I'm currently completely incapable of doing anything BUT fixating on 8.1 Preview. And imagine if MS releases it on Tuesday instead of tomorrow. I believe the global sigh of disappointment will cause a hurricane.

    Why answer a question if someone may have already answered it, simply because you don't want to read? It just makes the thread even larger when information is repeated due to laziness.

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the new Swype like keyboard. That has me uber excited... also Cortana and Action Center. :)
    Swipe keyboard is honestly something I anticipate wishing there was a way to turn it off. I tried swype for Android and it wasn't for me. I hope I'm wrong, but for people like me who prefer to tap I fear it will register imprecise taps as swipes, leading to a new source of typos. Only time will tell with that one...

    Word Flow is always on, but you can still type as per usual. The keyboard can tell which you are trying to do.

    Word Flow requires that your finger doesn't leave the keyboard and that you draw a pattern connecting the letters. It would take more than an imprecise tap to make it think you were trying to use Word Flow.

    I live in India.i was wondering if i set my region to us (to use cortana) would it bring any changes that i might not enjoy while my region was set as India. Pls comment.
    I could be wrong but I believe your language may also need to be set to English (US). It's possible Cortana may struggle with your accent, or the differences between American English and UK English that is largely taught in India. Also there exists the possibility of having to put up with SAE units of measure, since the US rejected the metric system (F for temperature, pounds instead of KG, miles instead of KM, inches instead of millimeters, etc) which could be very confusing...

    Question... Preview for developers App... After running it the checkbox is already checked with the Done button greyed out. Can it the app be clever enough to know that on my previous device my Microsoft Account is already enrolled????
