8520 Language

My friend brought me a Blackberry but the only possible language is English.
I wanted to update the software for more languages (Personally, I like Hebrew). What should I do?
Thank you!

Re: 8520 Language

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


Start here please:

  • KB05305 Localization support for BlackBerry smartphones

Language availability is a multi-step process:

  1. Installing to your BB, an OS package that contains the language(s) you desire (as per that KB)
  2. Including, as you install it, ALL selections concerning your desired language
  3. Activating, after you install, your desired language(s) on your BB

Good luck!
