    You might want to list your specific model so that people with the same model can help you. Different languages are available on different models. I'm not going to have the same phone as you but likely someone here will.

    If your phone does not have German as one of the available system level languages, you could possibly root your phone and change the locale or some other hack to make German available, but you cannot add system languages without root.

    Did you look for Deutsch under the languages? I don't think you will see it as German but it should show as Deutsch.
    If not then you may have to install another ROM that supports it. Am not sure if you can install another Samsung ROM using Kies (maybe someone with more knowledge can jump in).
    Rooting means unlocking your phone to gain system access, so that you can install another ROM on it. But this will void your warranty. So unless you don't mind that then I'll suggest try to install another Samsung ROM using Kies.

    Thanks. But I have no idea how to install another ROM and actually I also dont want to loose warranty. I found in internet that it isn't possible to modify or add new system languages. For the keyboard language I have already in "deutsch". That was no problem. But I would love to change the system language.... Have already somebody success with that or is it true that it isn't possible...

    You can't do anything unless you root and I wouldn't root a present without the recipient's permission myself, but that's up to you of course. Otherwise, you either return it or give it to them as is.

    No. I got the present and I am german..... And it was big surprise for me when I contacted customer service from Samsung in Germany that they say they can not help and the warranty isn't worldwide. In Indonesia they also say they can not help...

    But I have no idea how to root the phone and I also can not imagine that a company like SAMSUNG can not solve this problem.....
    So I was surfing in Internet and found this Forum.

    My last hope......

    It looks like it is impossible to fix this problem... Right?

    I'm in Thailand and the models here don't have German pre-installed. Samsung said it couldn't be done.
    However I took it to a Samsung dealer for 3 dollars he did it in less than five minutes not routed and no loss of data.
    My advice is to take it to few dealers that have in house technical support.
