Sorry had not replied sooner to the messages received regarding this topic. have been away to China and had been catching up on work ever since!
Thanks for all the replies and tips. I managed to talk with someone in China who runs a mobile phone repair business who suggest I go to mobile phone repair shop owned by Chinese people.
Followed the advice and now I have Chinese language as a choice, plus new graphics, and other functions such as many types of new ring tones. The phone seems to work better too (we are in area with very poor signal).
