I had the same problem with a mp3 player..what u could do is look at the user manual and navigate from the default screen to the settings and language section,requires some navigation and trial error though or if you have a friend with the same mobile,you could synchronise clicks on the mobile till you came to the language sure you start the process from the same way would be switch off both and switch on both and then begin..
all the best!

Use another cellphone that has the Google Translator app and use the Camera feature to translate what you see. Look for Set Up - Language.

Go back factory condition

Hello Cynthia,
There are several ways to achieve this.
Reset phone
The Reset feature allows you to set your phone options back to
the factory defaults.
  1. From Idle mode, touch Menu-> Settings -> Phone -> Reset phone.
  2. At the "All settings reset to factory defaults. Continue?" prompt, touch Yes to reset, or No to cancel. Once your phone has been reset to its default settings for those selected options, it will restart itself in order to incorporate the new settings.
Restore phone
The Restore feature allows you to delete any user information
that has been added, in addition to setting your phone options
back to the factory defaults.
  1. From Idle mode, touch Menu-> Settings -> Phone ->Restore phone.
  2. At the "All settings reset to factory defaults and all user data will be deleted. Continue?" prompt, touch Yes to reset, or No to cancel.
Reset code
Enter *2767*3855# in phone dial.

Warning! All your data including contacts, messages etc. will be lost! Copy all your necessary data/Contacts/Messages etc. to SIM or make backup on your PC before full reset!

I have my g1 unlocked here in the Philippines. The person who unlocked it for me used his own google account to make it work. Now I can't use its other features because it needs the password, and I...

Hi dc_anasela,
First off, you need to un-freeze your unit by taking the battery out and then putting it back in. You had the right idea in restoring the factory settings. You may want to try it again. Here is the recommended way of doing it: -Hold the HOME and POWER keys at the same time for about 20 seconds. -Press Alt+L after you see the Warning screen ( Yellow triangle with an Exclamation Point ) -Press Alt+W to do a factory reset. -Press the HOME and BACK keys again for 20 seconds to complete the hard reset.
If the problem still persists, you may need to contact the person who unlocked your phone and get the password from him. I hope it does not come to that. Good luck, I hope everything works out for you.

Hi, my E63 it's in chinese. How can I get it to english without understanding chinese? Thks

Hi gilberto_vie,

Try typing in code *#7780# to perform soft reset - this restores factory settings without deleting your data.

If that doesn't work try *#7370# to perform hard reset - but this will delete all your data and restore factory settings.

If the phone asks for a security code the default Nokia security code is: 12345

(Please note: If you are using a phone that was purchased in China, the default language will be Chinese, so after restoring settings it will still be in Chinese!)

Hope this helps you.

Best regards,

Soft touch not working

It seems hardware failure of your phone's tuch screen. As N-95 is rather complicated you are advised not to open it untill you are not trained and have not enough skill to do so. Any skilled technician can do this job for you but will charge little for that. If you are skilled then post me I will send you manual depecting this by pic. You have to download it from rapidshare.

Acer apire 3000 keeps freezing!

The first, best thing to do is to back up your data and do a system restore. Acer's have the restore function usually built into their acer system management software.

Restoring the computer will solve most issues. If you keep having issues after the restore you probably have a hardware error like a bad hard drive or bad memory.

Be sure to back up any important data as the restore will erase everything from the hard drive and set it back to the way it came from the factory

Good luck!
