I bought the device (GENERIC_MEA) in Saudi Arabia. It has a bilingual (Arabic & English) keyboard. The store clerk had said that the device supports both Arabic and English, with Arabic set as default. As I cannot read Arabic well, I changed the language in the Regional settings and the menus changed to English. However the phone application, the camera application and the Windows Media Player still have Arabic menus.

A quick online search indicates that the default language cannot be changed, but then why some English and some Arabic menus? I contacted Sony Ericsson and was told that the Middle East has separate English and Arabic devices (though I couldn't find any pure English device) and further queries were ignored.

I've found a solution to the phone issue. By disabling the phone skin in the registry, the dialer changes to the default Windows one with English menus, which I am happy with.

In case of the media player, I can use third party software.

I haven't found a solution for the camera menus. If anyone has a solution or workaround, please let me know.
