Cortana UK is not part of 8.1 or Cyan

It is only currently available if you are on the developers preview 8.1 update 1

Microsoft are still working on the UK version, it is supposedly close to being ready but all they have said is it will be "late this year"

Or you can install the dev preview and play with it now

I'm finding it really useful, especially when in the car,

i also did the same thing on my test

phone lumia 520 and it does work

once you change the region and make

the usa as default all you need do after

that is restart your phone and cortana will

be there settings then swipe to applictions

and she will be on that list just put a few deatils

and it's up and running

thanks for the replies, got it to work yesterday as sugested by changing both settings. Only drawback is you have to leave the settings in usa option to carry on using it.
