Regional setup
« on: March 21, 2013, 01:13:53 PM »
Hi - I'm new to the forum and my Nexus 10 is my first android device. I'm from the UK but spend a lot of time in France - I ordered the Nexus 10 for delivery to France, and understandably it came set up for French use. I changed the language to English, but all of the services - books, movies, search engine - default to French web sites when I really need to view English language sites. Can anyone tell me how to amend the regional settings to default to English sites?
Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm guessing you need to do a factory reset and restart your setup from ground 0, and make sure Google setup is started with English, you can change languages on these tablets anytime to suit anyone's reading needs.

After several suggestions from Google Play help which didn't work, I tried factory reset and that didn't work either. It seems like the only answer is to get a UK VPN.

Without root that is about your only choice. If you could find "Market Enabler" along with root you were allowed you to access Google Play in other regions, but Google has mostly blocked it.
