Hi Everyone,

I'm still new here & new to BB world.

I bought recently a BB 8700g which was unlocked of T-mobile Germany, it's came only in German Language, tried to run the setup wizard but there were no English Language, only German!, anyway i can change it to English??

Appreciate your help.

Get the latest OS update for the 8700, located at the top of this 8700 section in the Sticky Notes... follow the instructions there, and upon upgrade of the OS on the device, in Application Loader, make sure your additional Language options are checked--those that you need.

Let me add--on your BB device, look at Options > Language (or whatever the German equivilent is). Can you select any additional languages there?

Nope, only German !!

I went through that bit with him earlier JS, seems the guy he bought it off wiped every other language off

ok, then loading them from an OS upgrade in reinstall of the identical OS wil do it.
