I have try yo change the encoding to big5 and all other chinese font the phone listed under encoding, but it still doesn't work. Please, can someone help a newbie out? Thank you.

    P.S. I have use the seach button and seem like other people have no problem viewing chinese, maybe I am just not doing the right thing, but please help.

    I dont think the pearl has multi-language support otherwise I would recommend changing the language, try searching for an OS that has mult-language support. I'll see if I can find anything

    It works! There is an OS version released by a Hong Kong telecom company that includes Simple and Traditional Chinese fonts. You could install that OS version to get it. Or you could download that OS, remove the COD files for the new fonts, and load just those.

    Or better yet: Someone could do it for you! Like this guy did!

    Go there, and follow his simple instructions for installing Simplified and Traditional Chinese fonts onto your 8100. Now, I haven't tried this myself, so I can't say for SURE that it works, but I suspect it will. I'll probably try it myself this evening, just for fun, so if you have trouble, let us know, and I'll see if I can troubleshoot tonight.

    (It should be noted that these fonts are read-only... They still don't include an input method for chinese)

    peace,
    sam

    Just wanted to say that I installed the two font CODs without trouble, and it seems to work well.
