Im downloading the second update since 15min
It does a Bing search for "who are you" instead of giving me a personalized answer. Why?
Any Suggestions Please. Changed region to US and have Live id of US, but still not got that.
From India via Lumia 525 Update 1:
Got the CORTANA after Hard Resetting my phone and then by choosing all settings according to US standards.
Now CORTANA is downloading English(US) (63MB) Language. I hope this will work after this. :) Update 2:
I think store is not working properly. Whenever I try to open it, it gives an error "Cann't conect to the Internet, please try later". Hope they'll fix it soon. If someone got the similar problem & got it fixed. Please reply.
Okay. After Instaling English(US) as my language, CORTANA is working fine. But the store bug had not resolved yet. Please suggest something to fix it.
i think you need to check your time and timezone make it to match your country and change the time into your country's real time then go to email+accounts and tap, sync or whatever it says
it should work :)
Now Store is working fine.. :D.
But Now I thinks the phone became laggy. I tried to answer a call, when I tap the answer button, it doesn't respond as quick it was previous. I had tap it 3-4 times to attend the call.
yes it was laggy on my phone, i think it need time to cach itself or something at first the live tiles won't load the theme and cortana was slow
but now after 1 reset (shutdown and on) it become stable and a little bit faster than before WP8
just give it time :)
my friend just send me the same, i think we should wait until Microsoft fix it :)
i should wait...
does a Bing search for "who are you" instead of giving me a personalized answer. Why?

One such feature is the lock screen theming application, which will not be included in the Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview, according to Joe Belfiore.
it shows 805a01f7 error

Since I did the update, I am not able to use 3G mobile data to use IE at all. Weather, Store.
But, for instance, Bing search works, RSS reader...
I checked my region settings, date and time zone...but still the same.
I insterted my SIM in another phone - everything works as expected.
I did factory reset - but still the same.
Thanks UPDATE I had to update my APN details. It resolved my issue
And one more thing I have Lumia 525 which was under Gameloft offer. The listed games(like Asphalt 7, MC4,etc.) were free before the update to 8.1 . But now it is not showing them free. I think that this is due to the update to 8.1 . Please leave your opinion about this guys. Help me to get them again as free. Send via Lumia 525, India
