    bought an hts sensation xe brand new off ebay. When it came i realised it was the hong kong version. Is there any way of turning it to the english version so that i stop getting adverts and app updates in chinese

    You need to change the locale.

    Stock HTC ROMs only allow selecting from a handful of locales. For the HK ROM I think they are 'en_HK', 'zh_HK' and 'zh_CN' (appear as 'English', '中文(繁體)' and '中文(简体)' respectively, under 'Language' in the 'Language & keyboard' section of Settings). When set to 'English' ('en_HK' behind the scenes), they think you are in Hong Kong even though the UI is in English, hence all the location-specific stuff. I am guessing you probably want en_GB or en_AU.

    To get around the HTC ROM limitation, install one of the many locale switching apps found on Google Play, or (what I did) extract and install, from the Android SDK, the standard CustomLocale.apk that HTC chose not to include. Then you can change the locale to anything you like.

    This thread is old, but maybe someone is still listening. So here goes. I have a Sensation XE that came out of Hong Kong. I seem to be having a GPS problem. Is it a locale problem I wonder? How can it be fixed?
