China Cell Phone Use Guide: How To Change Language Settings On Phones
Don’t you hate it when somebody gets into your phone’s settings and ‘accidentally’ changes the settings so that they’re in some obscure language, like Latin, Ancient Egyptian or Klingon.
Thankfully, if you’re dealing with a phone from China in most cases go about things in a similar way and usually use either the MediaTek 6225 chipset or the MediaTek 6235 chipset. So, there are some things that will be in the same place (one of them being the language setting).
So without further ado here is how you can change your phone from Klingon to English (or your native language) without knowing any Klingon.
On pretty well every phone I’ve ever come across, the function to change languages is in PHONE SETUP. And PHONE SETUP is always in SETTINGS. And the SETTINGS icon on the main menu always looks like some wheel or cog which is basically as a metaphor for the inner workings of a product, er the settings, it could also be represented by the picture of some type of tool (like a spanner or a screwdriver)
So visually locate the SETTINGS icon, press on the 4th menu item which is usually PHONE SETUP, and then press on the 3rd menu item which is usually LANGUAGE. Once you’re there, you’ll see your own language and you can set it as your default.
Another instance of needing to change languages occurs when you do a factory reset. Factory resets of Chinese phones always takes the phone back to Chinese.
Once you turn it on after a reset, the first thing it will prompt you to do is calibrate the screen. Then follow the instructions I provided above to change the language.
And that’s it. Your phone is now immune to any ‘hilarious joke’ that your friends might want to play on it on April first.
