My Playbook is in French as I picked the wrong language on setup

Hoping someone can help...

 

On setup, I accedentally selected FRENCH as my language.  I went through the rest of setup in French as it would not allow me to go back to the region screen.  Now the tablet is active in French.  How do I change it to English- Canada? 

 

Again, the language section in Options (the wheel) will not work for this as the only options it gives me are french espanol deutch italian netherlands, and the only countries are canada beligum french luxembourg swiss.

 

So how do I redo the setup from the absolute beginning.  BTW, is there a way to do it without using a PC?  Can I stick a pin in the playbook somewhere?

Found the solution on Crackberry, you do a "security wipe."

Switch on. Go to the settings bezel 'top right, On the left 16 apps down you will see a world symbol. This is the language of the playbook. Enter and you will have the options to scroll down for 'current language' and country/region. Select 'English' and 'UK'.

 

Hope this works for you
