I have been in a situation were I mistakenly set my phone to another language that I don’t even understand or know how to change back. However, you can easily change the language back if you are familiar with your phone settings but what if you are not.


Let say you don’t understand the language and can’t change I back since you don’t understand the settings any longer. You simply need to get another Android phone from your friend or family members preferably the one with the same version of Android OS.

Use the one you understand to set the one you don’t understand by following these steps. This method will guide you on how to change your phone language even if you don’t understand the settings again.

  • Goto the menu of the two phones you can use the one in a preferred language to understand the one you wish to change.
  • From the main menu, you will see Language & input¬†and from there you will see Language option.
  • Select Language and you will be taking at another menu where you will see English, Chinese, Japanese, French, and Spanish and lots of them.
  • select the one you understand and you are done.
