    Default Modify iPhone locale settings (Region Format)

    Hello,

    Is there a way I can manually edit the international settings or localization?
    I can't find them anywhere in the filesystem of my jailbroken iphone.

    What I am seeking is to have my Region as Egypt, but to have the Date/time format in English not Arabic..

    why i would do that, because a problem in bitesms can't detect my imessage contacts if I select their numbers while I am not selecting my proper region..and the only way to bypass this is to edit ALL my local contacts numbers by adding the leading internation prefix, i.e +2xxxxxxxxx in my case..
    any help will be appreciated.
    regards

    Wow I got it..
    After almost 3 hours browsing with ifile into preferences plist file I found the solution
    Globalpreferences.plist file found in:
    var/mobile/library/preferences using ifile plist efitor
    go to the bottom of the file
    <key>AppleLocale</key>
    <string>ar_EG</string>
    in my case I am in EgyptI changed from ar_EG to en_EG
    and its is done. I keep all the english settings with Egypt phone number format.

    Damn you apple. They should fix that to make people able to use region formats without affecting the system language.
