japanese character and font support
if i install japanese character and font support to my blackberry will it give me japanese on my blackberry..?
Well, your profile says you're running 4.5 Beta! If you can't find it wherever you got that, you're going to have to downgrade (not a fun job!).
First, if your provider is in the list, check what they have. If you see "(Chinese, Japanese, and Korean)" after the OS listing, you're in luck! For example, AT&T has "BlackBerry Handheld Software v22.214.171.1242 (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean)" for the 8310 (no, you can't use that). Simply download it and when you bring up the Application Loader, you'll see the language options available. Note that sometimes the listing just says "EastAsia". You'd have to try it to find out if that includes Japanese.
If your provider doesn't have alternate language support, you'll have to go through this list to find a provider that has support for Japanese.
Providers that support the 8320 (The latest OS is v126.96.36.199.):
Once you find what you need, download and install it, then rename or delete the file:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\Vendor.xml
then fire up the Application Loader and you should see the language options. Note: If your device has the same OS version but is just Multilanguage, you'll only need to load the Language modules.
I have seen postings here on how to create an .alx for just the language. If that's the case, you might be able to use the 8310 from AT&T to grab just the language assuming you're running the same major version of the OS on the same series model (i.e. the Japanese Language for the 8310 v4.2 should work on all 83xx devices running 4.2.x.x), but you'd have to search the forums to find out how to do that.
