Well I'm outside the US region and I changed my language region and all to US and still Cortana isn't there. Though I updated from Cyan to Denim, there is no Cortana. What to do?

    Where are you? which phone model do you have? which exact version number are you using? What do you see when you press the search key? – Rowland Shaw Dec 24 '14 at 18:59

You may need to reset your phone to defaults to change your region and make Cortana available, as it was not avail outside the U.S. However, the Windows Developer distribution now extends to regions outside the U.S.

  • The Lumia Denim update, which has started rolling out, is bringing Cortana to other regions – Rowland Shaw Dec 27 '14 at 16:14
  • I have Lumia 720. When I press the search key, Bing opens but no Cortana. Tried everything. Restarted phone more than thrice! I need to reset it? Like a hard reset? – Kinza Khan Dec 30 '14 at 9:46
