Changing the Language of a Samsung Pixon M8800 Cell phone

I recently bought a Samung Pixon M8800 but it came configured in the Greek Language and I only speak English.

I have tried to change it by:
1) Using the installation CD (no option was given to change the language)
2) Using a code that I found on the internet. (http://www.fixya.com/support/t2987295-change_language_samsung_pixon)

I have also read the manual, which was in English, and found nothing relevant.

Can someone let me know how to change the language of the phone to English?

onaled777,

Not having a pixon myself, I cannot verify this. However, you may have success with flashing the firmware to a primary-English version of the firmware (and it may help the phone operate better as a bonus). Take a look at http://darkforestgroup.com/forum/index.php?topic=378.0 for the firmware files, and that site also hosts a guide to flashing the M8800.

Note that any firmware upgrade/flashing may turn your phone into a handy plastic brick, useful mostly for looking pretty.

Cheers,
LHerrou

You need to install new TouchWiz OS.

 Unlike other Samsung phones, pixon and few other (I guess Omnia as well) use TouchWiz UI instead of symbian.
