    Hello my Fellow Bold Users.

    Got Another bold boot it up, it's in Spanish by default? thought this is odd... lol anyway So i'll wipe it, delete everything start fresh and once booted up (like its new) its all in Spanish again.. so i have to change the language to English.

    My question is.. is this this hard coded into the firmware ? as i have installed a new firmware/well OS 7.1 did a clean wipe again and it still boots up in Spanish ? so have to change the language AGAIN.... annoying (but i guess there isn't a workaround this?) - Long as i don't wipe it that is lol.

    To change the language on a bold 9900:

    1. If necessary, touch the bottom of the Home screen to expand the Applications panel.
    2. Scroll to the All panel and tap the Options icon.
    3. Scroll to and tap Typing and Language.
    4. Scroll to and tap Language and Method.
    5. Do any of the following:
    6. To change the display language, change the Display Language field.
    7. To change the typing language, change the Typing Language field.
    8. To change the language for voice commands, change the Voice Dialing Language field.
    9. Press the Menu key.
    10. Tap Save.


    Probably keeps going back to Spanish so a Spanish speaking user can still use the phone after resetting it.

    If English isn't on it I'm pretty sure you can get it with the Blackberry Desktop manager

    hmm better learn Spanish But ya probably just a language setting. My Opera Mini app would always revert back to Spanish for some reason about every month or so. It was set to english but odd things happen....

    Have you tried deleting the other languages using the BlackBerry desktop manager?

    Look for vendor number in Device Status and Information, then Google out the carrier with the vendor number. It will likely be one from a carrier in Mexico or Latin America which thus the corresponding start up language.
