Hi all, so I bought a unit from China and there were no problems with the language as I've set it up for English (US) including the keyboard. As a matter of company policy (to receive email), I have to encrypt the device and set up a PIN code. As soon as the encryption completes, the screen asking for PIN (during boot) changed to Chinese characters including the keyboard. Is there a way to fix this so the PIN code screen and keyboard goes back to English?

BTW, I've seen the same behaviour in my previous phone (Samsung Galaxy S3) but in that unit, only the PIN code screen (the message telling you to input the PIN the box below) changed to Vietnamese (I bought it in Vietnam). The keyboard to enter the PIN remained in English.

As the unit is new and there are not much apps installed yet (thank goodness!), I am willing to try any steps even those involving factory reset if needed but not willing to root (as it's disallowed by company policy).

Thanks for any help!
