Hi elson3344,

 

The reason for the malay language is because the email you are linking with is default to malaysia as your location, and msia marketplace doesnt have full apps collection.

 

so few things you can do is:

 

(1) Reset your phone to default setting, start all setting all over

(2) Create a new window live account, and not choosing malaysia as base country

(3) Same goes to market place,choose an english spoken country (like U.S) as your default country when you click into market place for the first time.

 

Also please note that the option to change your Zunetag’s country is currently not available.


The currently solution for your issue, were to create a new Windows Live ID and then also a new Zunetag, by going in thehttp://www.zune.net/ page, logging in and choosing the country you want to be supported.


For changing the main Windows Live ID on the phone, a phone reset is needed, so please make a backup before resetting and notice that it isn’t possible to transfer the applications you have purchased to the new Windows Live ID

 

Regards,

Re: Marketplace in Malaysia no English & I lost XBOX Live

Hey, i was facing the same problem when i first had my Lumia,

I register a new microsoft account and set "Singapore" as my country and voila, XboxLive tile is there and everything is in the English language.

I didn't dare to set my country to the far west because i fear that though the marketplace may have apps but some are limited to jurisdiction.

The best bet is to set the phone to the nearest English language speaking country.

You can still buy the apps provided you have a valid credit card attached to the account.

FYI: I'm from Malaysia =)

Re: Marketplace in Malaysia no English & I lost XBOX Live

A little off topic, but is there a way to change marketplace language? I live in Austria but I hate if something is in German, or any other language than English when it comes to electronic devices.
This really **bleep** me off on the iPhone, hoping that WP7 wouldn't have this localized **bleep**.

I am sorry but the ONLY way is to register a new Live account and you better make sure that the language set for that country is the one you wanted because once you selected that particular country during registration, there is NO way you can switch it anymore.

Hi elson3344,

 

A full reset is required because the primary LiveID is where things like your marketplace purchases and personal information on the phone are linked to.

 

When you reset first make sure you transfer your contacts to your new LiveID;

  • Login to your previous ID and hover the mouse over the Hotmail option on top of the screen, then select contacts.
  • Above the contacts you will see and option 'manage' from where you export your contacts. A file is downloaded to your computer with the contacts.
  • Now do the same on your new ID and Import the saved file there. This transfers your contacts. You can do the same for Calendars if you want.
  • You can now setup mail accounts again.
  • If you have bought apps contact Zune support to have your apps transferred to your new liveID, then download the app 'reinstaller' which will get all your apps back to the phone for you

 

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Kosh
