    There either using the app "preview for developers" from the phone store ! all you need is MS e mail account and your good to go (there no rocket scientist skill needed, when you sign up just hit check for updates manually) or they've the cyan update and all there phone settings set to American English, language,keyboard region.

    Go to the phone store and download the app "preview for developers" use your MS mail account to sign in and then manually check for updates. ( if you have cyan on your phone it will update you to 8.1.1 and give you cortana ) also cortana is in only certain countries at the present time now..

    I know there are several thread about this... but I have 'normal' cortana, and I'm in the UK.
    It turned up on its own after the 8.1 update a couple of months ago.

    Can I ask what network your on ? just that O2 push out the update (about a week ago now) which contained the cortana build.. just wondering if your on a different network and if its behind the seams updating itself .

    I'm in UK and got the Cyan update and everything set to UK and I got the "normal"Cortana the minute I downloaded the update on the 16/10, the very same day that I got my 930 which is a sim free phone (unbranded) . To answer your question, yes, there is official Cortana in the UK - I'm one of them.
    I'm Pay as you go on Three UK.

    If you are running a mobile with the Cyan update you should have the option to activate Cortana in settings in the applications tab. Think that the only phones available with this function are all the newish models etc 930, 830, 730, 735,630,635 and 530 and even then you need to have the Cyan update installed.

    Actually, only the 830 and 730 come with Cortana in the UK (unlocked by GDR1). The 930 has gotten the 8.1.1 update and therefore now has Cortana
