Blackberry APP world language settings

I was going through the categories on the App world on my Curve and for some reason all of the headings are in French. My carrier is Virgin mobile and i live in Toronto so I'm not sure what prompted the change. I recently upgraded to the latest version of App world so I'm not too sure if that anything to do with it. Is it possible to change the language settings back to English or am I going to have to brush up on my French from now on?

 

Thanks for any help you can give.

Re: Blackberry APP world language settings

I as well am looking for answer as to 'why', the category section of app world arbitrarily changed the language to French.

I just checked today and it seems to have fixed itself. Not sure how but it happened, I guess I wasn't the only one with the problem.

Re: Blackberry APP world language settings

I'm having the same problem.  Although, when I did a remove battery reboot, it appeared to solved the issue.  After another remove battery reboot today, the problem's back.  My categories appear in French, even though French is not installed on my smartphone!  This is very frustrating too.

Re: Blackberry APP world language settings

I fixed this issue about a week ago. Here is what I did:

 

Go to your language settings, and change it from english to whichever you choose, then change it back to english. If it doesn't work the first time, do it again, then turn off your phone, pull the battery and check. 

 

I did this a couple of times, and eventually it fixed the issue and has never returned.

 

Good luck!

Re: Blackberry APP world language settings

Without me doing anything, my language in categories mysteriously switched back to English.  This is too strange.

Re: Blackberry APP world language settings

Unbelievable. I had this issue in BlackBerry 10, too! (Z10STL100-2/10.1.0.1720)

 

I've changed the language display to a different language and back to English and it fixed the issue.

 

How did this issue propagate from OS 7 to BB10?
