How to Change the Language on an iPhone 3G

Posted by 1 on

The iPhone can be a wonderful phone if you know how to correctly use it. Unfortunately, certain things can get very complicated if you don't know what you're doing. If you've ever accidentally set the phone to a different language and can't find the way out, or if you are trying to change it to your native language, read on!


  1. Push the home button. This gives you a place to start. If you are new to the iPhone, you should know that the home button automatically brings you to the home screen, no matter what you were doing. If your phone is off, turn it on. Push the on/off button on the top left of the phone to turn it on.
  2. Touch the "Settings" button. This should be a gray button with mechanical gears pictured.
  3. Scroll down to "General". The General button looks exactly the same as the "Settings" button, so this should be no problem to find.
  4. There are 4 groups of Buttons. Scroll down to the fourth group, and press the last button in that group. In English, it should read "International". This will be trickier to find because there is no icon next to the word.
  5. Touch the very first button on top. This is the "Language" button. Ignore the other buttons below this one.
  6. Select your desired language from the list of languages. Press the button in the Top Right corner to apply these settings.


  • There is an online manual to help with any questions or problems.[1]


  • Worst comes to worst with any type of problem with the iPhone, call AT&T. They will work on the problem, or replace your phone if they are unable to fix it. Do not try to take apart the phone.
