Is anyone able to assist in providing an English Language ROM for the the i780?

Mine currently in Italian!

Alternatively just a way to change the operating language.

Stephen,

I too have bought a Dutch version of the phone and find myself in the same position.

Samsung Assistance on the phone gave me a problem ticket number and told me they would ring me back on the 19th March.

The guy I talked to seemed to think it was a problem with the regional settings but I have difficulty with that one.

Anyway looks like we will have to wait until someone comes up with a better tail.

Regards,

Stephen Boden

Stephen,

Did you try Real VGA to reset the langauge on the phone???

Saw it on the XDA developers forum and thought it might be of help.

Havent tried it but might as a last resort after Samsung call me back if they have no resolution.

Stephen,

Had a discussion with a Samsung support rep yesterday which left me decidedly unhappy with things. It would appear that Samsung have done an exclusinve deal with Orange and there will be no SIM free versions of the I780 in the UK as a result. All english version ROMS will be grey imports and the rep had some nasty things to say about Expansys.

They are still investigating the reason why the phone cannot be converted to English menus but stated that they would not be releasing an english version ROM for flashing to the phone.

He said he would phone me back next week to update me but I dont hold out much hope.

Time I think to return the phone to the Netherlands and wait for Expansys to get in an english ROM version from somewhere!!!!!!

Looks like we might have to abandon any hope of changes.

Regards,

Stephen Boden

Nikkon,

Check out the XDA developers Forum http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=380723

The answers are all there.Changed my Dutch version to English and quite simple.

Hope that helps
