HTC Desire :: How To Change Initial Language Setting?
May 20, 2010
I just bought an unlocked HTC Desire from Hong Kong. I haven't put a sim card in it yet as I'm waiting for my old plan to live out its contract, but I couldn't resist having a play with the Desire in the mean time Because I bought it from overseas I can only seem to set my default language as English and then in brackets many Asian country options, eg English (Thailand) and English (Singapore). This would be fine except it is becoming frustrating when typing because all of the predictive text etc has many Asian characters in it and I'm struggling to write accurately.I've tried turning off predictive text and 'check invalid sequence', but it doesnt seem to work? I also tried downloading the application 'more locale 2' which had english (australian) but it doesnt seem to affect the keyboard. Does anyone have any advice regarding how to change the initial language setting? Is there any chance that when I put an Australian sim card into it the language options will change?
From the UK and an Orange customer. I am sick of the Orange setting to go to one of their (O2 mobile Internet only) web page for when I start the default browser. How can I change this? I tried homepage for google and 'home' goes to google but just starting the prog from the icon/widget still tries (and fails when on WiFi) to go to orange.
Most SMS I send are in Portuguese (Brazil), is there any way I could set the stock keyboard to suggest Portuguese words instead of English?I have set it to Portuguese (as a general setting), but the suggestions on the keyboard are still in English.I would like to have the general language to be English and be able to change the language for the keyboard as needed.
Added music to SD card (I accidentally formatted so initial file structure was gone). I created a Music folder and dumped some MP3s in there. Now I can play them through music player, view them in Astro File Manager, but they are not available to select for phone ringtone.
I've installed Android and the languages available are chinese and english, but with that I don't have problems.the problem is when I write an email or sms that I dont have the portuguese dictionary do you know how to fix this or download the dic?
I am french but I use my phone in Italian because it's my second language and I spend lot's of my time there.
The only problem is that I would like to use Google Now in French because 90% of time I have a translate to Italian notification when I'm in France and when I search something in France through Google search I have a mix of french and Italian results which is a bit irritating because I have to change the "it" in "fr" at every search
I am developing an Android App which communicated with a server. User can select a language of his choice at startup or during the App execution lifetime. After selecting the language, the corresponding XML file is downloaded from server according to language which will map the "Values" of Application strings according to that language. Can I do something like replacing the default Strings.xml which contains English names(Say by default) to the language selected by user. Better will be adding an XML file per language and referring it runtime directly.
I always configure the UI of my mobile phones with english. But I write sms in French, German, English & Spanish. Android does not seem to offer the possibility to quickly change the input language of the keyboard. It looks like UI language both determines keyboard layout and input language, which is EXTREMELY inconvenient for someone using several languages on a daily basis. Does it exist a workaround, an external app or a feature I oversaw to solve this MAJOR drawback?
I know it's possible to have multiple languages in a single application through the res/string and depending on Locale.Here is a case http://stackoverflow. com/questions /2078289/android-controling-the-user-language Now how can I change the language in the phone ?Like I'd do by Menu > Settings > Language & Keyboard > Select locale > languages Is there some real code to access to these settings ? Or should I create intent for a shortcut to the language settings.Please post some code Edit : With Locale class developer.android. com/intl/fr/reference/java/util/Locale.htmlThe constructor is at least Locale(String language)The input is language.How can you retrieve the current language used on device ?
I choose a wrong phone language by mistake, how do I change it back to english.
The language I selected by mistake, it's one I don't understand at all.
I donwnloaded & visited the support site, but I couldn't resolve my problems with the instrucctions in the manual From the Home screen, drag upwards. Find and tap Settings > Locale & text > Select locale. Select an option.
If you choose the wrong language and can't read the menu texts, go to www.sonyericsson.com/support for help.
Today, I bought my new Xperia 10 mini pro, and happily started wading through the start up process. At the vital moment of choosing the default language for the phone, I was disturbed and chose Polish instead of Norwegian!
Now I cannot find out how to change it back as all the menus are in Polish, and my knowledge of that language is NIL.
I just got my phone I have already messed it up. During the start up I was scrolling the languages to see all the phone supported when it chose CZECH as the main language. Is there a way to change the language back to English and if you can will you tell me what the worlds are in czech so that I know which buttons I need to hit.
i just bought this phone(Alcatel OT idol ultra 6033x) and it hasn't czech language. Phone is for my girlfriend and she need that language.I had HTC HD7 and HTC one. how to change the language on this forum but i din't found how to change it on Alcatel 6033x so thats why i am making this new thread.
Language is not in the settings.I have also contacted Alcatel support but i still haven't any respond from them.
