I have done all the usual bits, including the normal keyboard/language selection in the settings menu. It appears that the phone is set to German language at the most basic OS level. There were several apps that started off in German as well, but they retained the UK English setting once changed.
The language setting does NOT revert to German each time I reboot...only the PIN screen prompt. Everything else is in English.
Does anyone know what I can do to resolve this issue?
The phone was purchased through Vodafone, but is not locked to the network.
I have exactly the same problem, and i dont know if there s anyway to change it.
the PIN page changes back to English once booted in, or if i decrypt my phone.
