Hi, Go > Settings > Language & Keyboard > Select Language.
You should be able to change to English from there. Cheers Neil.

From the Huawei U8800 FAQ's Manual:

2.7 Language and Keyboard

2.7.1 How do I change the phone language?
Touch > Settings > Language & keyboard > Select language and select the phone language.

2.7.2 How will I do it if I am unable to select my desired language?
When your phone support for your desired language but you are unable to select the language on the phone, insert the SIM card of your desired language. Then, touch > Settings > Privacy > Factory data reset.

2.7.3 Why am I unable to use the input method after the input
software is successfully installed?
After installing an input software, you must check the input method:
Touch Settings > Language & keyboard and check the new input method.

I think that what they are trying to say, is that you must use the Firmware Upgrade (Download from huaweidevice.com ) and use your comp to put the Update onto the Micro SD card.

When you Download the correct Update for your phone model, you can extract and open/explore and you will find a Pdf file which you can print out. This gives the instuctions and procedure to follow to update your phone.

I don't think the SIM card has the Data on it. It normally has your Telco Provider info only. When I did a Factory Reset on a U8150 Ideos, it first gives you a choice of language (Chinese or English) which you use Vol buttons to scroll up or down and Power button to Enter.

Hopes this helps. Neil.

Extra info to Help Reset job.

12.8 Resetting Your Mobile Phone


12.8.1 Backing Up My Data
You can use your Google account to back up your mobile phone’s settings to Google servers. If you replace your mobile phone, the settings you have backed up will be transferred to the new mobile phone the first time you sign in to your Google account.
1. On the Settings screen, touch Privacy.
2. Select the Back up my data check box.

12.8.2 Restoring Factory Data


If you reset your phone to the settings that were configured at the factory, all of your personal data stored on the phone, including information about your Google Account, any other accounts, your system and application settings, and any applications you have downloaded will be erased. Resetting the phone does not erase any system software updates you have downloaded or any files on your micro SD card, such as
music clips or photos.
1. On the Settings screen, touch Privacy > Factory data reset.
2. When prompted, touch Reset phone, and then touch Erase everything. The mobile phone resets the settings to the original factory settings, and then restarts.
Cheers Neil.
