    Greetings,

    My seven year old got a hold of the phone and somehow managed to change the language from English to Arabic. Can some one here give me a step by step of how to go through the menu and click on languages to re set it without me having to boot the phone from scratch!!!!!

    Go to Settings - General - Language & Region - iPhone Language and change it there.

    After tapping on the settings icon on the homescreen, following the instructions in these screenshots should get you back to the English language.

    I actually do this to my phone on purpose because every time I reboot the phone I lose some icon pictures. Going into another language gets them back. But the first time I did this I picked Japanese, a move stake as I don't know any of that language. Anyway , I learned to go into General, go down 6 sections and the 3rd line (bottom) in that 6th section is what you want. When you press that you usually see the language list and Rnglish should be #2 on that list.
