    Help! Cannot Read Korean anymore

    Advertisement



    Hello, fellow stackers,

    I just replaced my old 8730e with 8830 (verizon), and now I cannot read Korean anymore. I tried to set Encoding to EUC-KR and it did not work.

    Does anyone know how I can get my Korean back? I know I can't type Korean, but at least, reading Korean newspaper, and websites is my favorite thing to do when I have a long wait for anything.

    Please help me.

    Thank you!

    Juhee

    I think the best way to get this working is you HAVE to install the chinese fonts.. then install the korean fonts. Its how I had to do it on my 8830 in order to read Japanese.. installed chinese, then japanese.. then I can read Japanese.. Hope this helps.

    How can I install Chinese and Korean fonts? With my 8703e, I didn't have to do this. Did you have to do it with your old BB? Any advice would be greatly appreicated.

    Thanks, jortextcu.

    It only gives English, French or Spanish as input language options. I am not looking for input capability... Just the ability to read Korean....which I used to do with my 8703e without any problems.

    Thanks,

    Juhee

    Install Desktop Manager on your computer then download the device firmware files from Verizon's web site (http://www.vzam.net/blackberry) for both the 8830 and the 8703 and install them both on your computer. Perform an update on your 8830 and manually point to the location of the 8703 firmware and you'll see Korean fonts as one item to install. Select it and complete the 8830 upgrade and you will have added Korean to your BB. I've done this numerous times and it works great.

    One caveat: You cannot type in Korean, only read it.

    Re: Help! Cannot Read Korean anymore

    I downloaded both, and installed both. Then, when I connected the Blackberry, it asked me whether or not I would like to update it, to which I answered yes.

    However, I am not sure how to point the blackberry to 8703 firmware...? Would you please kindly point me to the right direction?

    Thank you so much!!!

    Re: Help! Cannot Read Korean anymore

    I don't read korean on my unit but I do read Japanese. I had to reinstall my OS and I lost my ability to read Japanese.. But have you guys downloaded
    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...4D2BB094734EB9

    This is the Downloading BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.2.321 (Chinese)

    When I uncompressed it.. I saw a Japanese.alx, Japanese.alx, Chinese.alx in the uncompressed directory of

    C:\program files\common files\research in motion\Shared\Loader Files\8800-v4.2.1.108_P2.3.0.85

    Use desktop manager to just install your asian language of choice and install and you might be able to read korean. Japanes worked for me which I was very relieved.. It doesnt show up in the options>Languages but If I were to receive Japanese emails I can read them as well as surf Japanese websites.

    Good luck!

    Re: Help! Cannot Read Korean anymore

    ncc1710p, YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!!!! Gosh, I don't know how I can thank you enough!!!! I had to return the 8830 to verizon because it wouldn't read Korean. Then, when I reverted back to my old 8703e, it picked up the O/S upgrade that I had installed, which made the Korean reading capability wiped off!!!! Gosh.

    Anyway, I like 8703e better than 8830 so far. At least the Verizon 8830 models are so hard to type on. The buttons are so close to each other and so sticky. I had to say bye-bye to typing while driving! Then, I went back to 8703e, and it feels like I am back home. So comfortable. The only draw back I can think of is the loss of the menu button on the front face, and the bluetooth tethering. Other than that, 8703e is for me!!!

    Thanks, ncc1701p. You are God-sent!

    Others who are suffering from the same pain, please see ncc1701p's help message above.

    Thanks!!!!!
