    Activate Cortana on your phone if you did not purchase your phone in the United States
    .
    Search VisiHow for a video that will teach you how to activate Cortana on your phone, and then you can come back and learn how to use Cortana. Another important point is that as an American program, it responds best to American accents. It has some trouble understanding English accents, and it has a lot of trouble understanding foreign names and locations, so test it out and see how well it works for you.
