For some reason my WiFi notifications have started appearing in I think Polish, or something with a similar alphabet, I don't even have any such languages installed as far as I can see.

This problem has survived through an update to 4.3 Jelly Bean. Phone is Galaxy Note 2, (GT-N7100), on O2 UK.

The 3 messages that I get when turning WiFi on and off with my home network - which has an English name, are in the attached picture.

Google Translate tells me that they are Polish for "Available connectivity package", "No access to Network" & "Available Wi-Fi connectivity".

    Polish uses the Latin alphabet like English, with a small number of extra letters, so if you're seeing a different alphabet, it's not Polish. Could you show us exactly what these notifications look like? – Dan Hulme Jan 11 '14 at 13:01
  • As @DanHulme indicated: A screenshot might be helpful. Further, what notifications are we talking about? Maybe you're just referring to the SSID of a certain network, which indeed might have a funny name? – Izzy Jan 11 '14 at 15:01
  • Dostepna with a squiggle under one or more fo the letters seems to be the most common word when I connect to my home network. – Steve Barnes Jan 11 '14 at 20:28
  • @Izzy - I have added screen shots and translations. – Steve Barnes Jan 12 '14 at 11:57
  • Thanks! Just resized it to fit better :) And yes, that definitly looks like Polish – and it's not just the SSID. Could it be you've installed some app when that started happening? – Izzy Jan 12 '14 at 12:11
