    I've changed my phone to English but a lot of software on it is Chinese only. Worse, most any time there is a error message, it displays in Chinese. And even worse than that, I can't use Google play as I get a phone incompatibility message.

    Question: Can I install generic android on this phone and if yes, how?

    Welcome to Android Central! Phones that were intended for the Chinese market typically have a Chinese ROM that has a number of preinstalled apps that are only in Chinese. They also aren't certified for Google Play, which is why you can't access the Play Store.

    Try searching the forums at XDA-developers.com to see if that phone model has a rooting method and any custom ROMs you can install.
