Lost language with upgrade to 2.3.3
I recently "upgraded" from 2.2 to 2.3.3. The only changes I noticed was new icons, it became more difficult to select text, and more important I can't set the phone to Russian, or even use a Russian keyboard, which is something I need. I wrote to LG support Russia, they simply confirmed that the upgrade screwed my phone, because the European version doesn't have Russian (I bought my phone in Germany, so it HAD Russian settings and keyboard before the "upgrade" - given that millions of Russian speakers live in Germany, they gotta have Russian settings on the phones sold there, so I assume they don't have the European version but maybe the Central European):
In riferimento alla Sua richiesta Le confermo che le lingue possono variare in merito alla versione software attualmente installata e non è possibile effettuare il downgrade a una versione precedente.
La lingua Russa non è prevista dall'aggiornamento europeo per il Suo telefono.
Eventuali installazioni di Rom originali non sono supportate da LG.
Model Number ? LG-P500___________
2.) Firmware Version ? _LG-P500-V20e_______
3.) Baseband Version ? What is that ?___________

Also do you have a T-Mobile Data plan on your

Is there any way to repair the damage? Ideally I need to have both Russian and French keyboards, just like I had 2 days ago. Any way to downgrade (impossible according to LG support), or to install a Central European version?
