Treo 680 keeps reverting to Chinese language

I recently purchased a new Palm Treo 680 from a dealer in China (the only place to get a new one any more) and am having a problem with it reverting to Chinese language.

Here are the details. I do a hard reset, choose English and all is well. Then I do a complete recovery using an NVBackup set from another Palm Treo 680. After the restore, the menus and program screens are in Chinese.

I have tried four times making my best guesses at excluding any files from the restore that I think might be triggering the Chinese language change; but, I am not having any luck. I have a lot of programs on this Palm that require a lot of setup and tweaking and would like to avoid all that if possible.

By the way, that same restore has worked well between other Treo 680's that were obviously intended for distribution in non-Asian countries.

Here's the list of NVBackup files made on an English Palm Treo 680. Can anyone help:

I found it. It is Unsaved Preferences that is triggering the Chinese language.

As an aside, this phone doesn't restore the same as my other 680's. After doing a NVBackup complete restore (less Unsaved Preferences), I'm having to re-enter product keys for all my add-on programs, set preferences all over again, etc.

On my other 680's, doing a complete restore also restores all settings, preferences, etc. so that absolutely everything is the same as with another 680.
