Will Koodo be pushing out the WP8.1 update for us in the minority that have windows phones?

I'm sure they will,but when ? If you don't want to wait for Koodo there is always the dev preview which is free and open to anyone, which will allow for updates to be installed on the device without carriers pushing it.
I have done the dev preview but no cortana ... seems the koodo sim won't completely set language to English (United States). Mine just says English under System>Language even though set to US. It has to have the (Untied States) part apparently. Or could be a HTC problem but rogers users have no problems with the same phone and mine is a rogers branded unlocked. Bah humbug. lol

My Cortana is working on my Lumia 1020. It's not language that you have to change. It's the region you have to change and it should work.

Stolen from Mobile Syrup. Let us know if it works. You’re Canadian, and therefore a nice person. You also lose out on a lot of great features from new products like Windows Phone 8.1. If you’re taken the plunge and installed the Windows Phone 8 … http://mobilesyrup.com/2014/04/14/how-to-enable-cortana-on-windows-phone-8-1-but-theres-a-catch/ Sent via Flipboard Sent from my BlackBerry 10 smartphone on the Koodo network.
Thanks but doesn't work. The problem is no one with the htc 8x unlocked from rogers using a diff provider like koodo can change the phone language, it stays Canada no matter what you set or if it can be changed, it can be anything but the USA. Least I've yet to hear if anyone has been able too. Probably rogers had region Canada set in the rom during branding is what I'm beginning to think.
