    Question Pearl 8100

    Advertisement



    I recently purchased a Pearl 8100.
    I do a lot of business with Japan, but am currently unable to read e-mails written in Japanese characters on my blackberry. This is a huge problem, especially when I am on the road.

    I contacted my provider, and they recommended me to this site.
    I will be very grateful if someone can point me in the right direction to solve this issue.
    Do I need to download a third party language software to be able to read Japanese characters on my Pearl? Will I be able to write in Japanese characters from my Pearl?

    Thank you for your time and attention to this message.

    You should be able to load the language pack onto your BB via Desktop Manager.

    EDIT: Just make sure you have the Multi-language DM...I only have english so I'm not sure what languages are supported.

    Re: Pearl 8100

    Thank you for the info.
    I am quite the beginner at this...
    Please let me know what the Multi-Language DM is?
    Also, I went to my DeskTop Manager, but found nothing mentioning a language pack...

    I'm sorry for the acronyms. The multi-language Desktop Manager is what I was referring to. Let me find a link for you.

    EDIT: https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...93E4F3BB068C22

    There we go, just grab the service pack 2 and multi-language one.

    Thank you.
    I am downloading the service pack 2 (multi-language version) to my desktop.
    It is a pretty big file so it may take a while...

    Do I just use the Application Loader in the Blackberry DeskTop Manager to get this onto my Blackberry?

    Re: Pearl 8100

    Yup, just load it up with the applications loader. Let me know how it goes!

    EDIT: It takes a while to install, it might look like it gets stuck on the Roxio media manager, but just let it run eventually it'll get done.

    Re: Pearl 8100

    Do you have any idea if I will be able to WRITE in Japanese characters from my blackberry?
    It is crucial I be able to read e-mails in Japanese, but being able to write would be really great.

    I'm sorry I have no idea about writing in different languages. This is out of my realm of knowledge. Maybe someone else will know.
