Question about Samsung Galaxy S GTI9000 Smartphone
You have to change the software (programming) that runs on your phone (hardware - physical electronics). That is done by loading the software into the memory of the phone. If you load software that includes English text strings - it puts up English text strings on the screen of the phone.
There is, for example, a 'stable' release of Cyanogen Mod 10.1.3 available for that phone (with English text) at... http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?type=stable&device=i9100. That would run an open version of Android "Jelly Bean".
If you have never programmed software into a device before, this may not be the best choice for something to learn on. Resetting that phone to load the software, if done incorrectly, can cause it to 'brick' - become frozen. But if you are patient, thoughtful, strong - you will need a cable and a computer and you can follow the instructions on the Cyanogen Wiki.

i was having a similar problem, if you go into a message and then press down the bottom where you would change the keyboard/input type (Samsung Keyboard, Samsung Phonepad ect.) > select Options....... >Input method tab > options > select English from the drop box > check that the XT9 Settings is also set to English. I hope this fixes the problem for other people with the same issue
