Mebbe Msft thinks no Cortana is preferable to a stupid Cortana.

You can get her in a few clicks if you want. Change your region to US or UK.

I just found that I can ask Cortana to remind me things using natural language, like this: "Remind me to make coffee in ten minutes." Cortana pre-populated a reminder box and set the correct time, and all I had to do was then confirm with a "yes" or a "no" if she'd gotten it correct.
Apparently she gets better with time as well. My little brother uses her all the time on his Lumia 520.

Ok, so what cool things have you discovered that Cortana can do?

That's genuinely useful, unlike asking her what she thinks of Google ;)
Ask Cortana "who's your daddy"

My Cortana is working 100%. Didn't need to make any changes to regions whatsoever.

"Cortana, what is your favourite Apple device?"

"I thought the Shuffle was adorable."

are you sure you are running Windows 10 Mobile on your phone ?
