Re: how can I add another language in bold 9900?

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


Please start with this KB:

  • KB05305Localization support for BlackBerry smartphones

The use of various languages on a BB is a matter of:

  1. Ensuring, from that KB, that what you desire is even possible
  2. Ensuring, from that KB, that you have the proper BB OS Package running on your BB
  3. Installing, via the Desktop Software, the specific languages you desire, onto your BB
  4. Activating, on your BB, the languages you've installed

Note carefully that those are steps, each depending on the success of the prior in order to even consider proceeding to the next.


Good luck!
