Attention, Korean Language Input, very important message from a BB fan

[ Edited ]

Dear all, who cares about it !!!


Recently I bought a Z10 here in Dubai, paid full in cash. Although I am native Korean living and working in Korea, currently working in Dubai as a PM for a certain project, I have used Black Berry for over 8 years now 6th different models so far, started from black and white in mid 2000 while I was working in US.


Ok, back to Z10, I simply did not imagined that you guys are not supporting Korean language nor Japanese input when I was purchasing. Oh by the way, I am writing this message in order not to criticize, nor give any bad names of Black Berry, like I told you I have been a fan of Black Berry over so~~~~~~~~~~~~many native Korean phones made and especially designed to suit perfectly in Korean mobile environment, you don’t know what’s it like to be a BB fan and user in Korea, very much limited support, assuming that must be the reason why you guys are downsizing or pulling out from the Korea market.


Yesterday, when I was looking for a contact, I had to scroll up and down for a quite long time as most of my contacts in Google and Outlook are written in Korean, leaving me no other options but to scroll up and down, up and down, until I finally hit the one among over 900 contacts. Try it!! It is not fun especially when your boss is waiting for such a contact. That quiet moment, sweating my hand, when my boss is patiently waiting for it, here I am scrolling up and down, up and down, up and down,,,,,assuming, at least, that he was in a good mood that day, thank God!


You know, after all, all I need to do is to spend another several hundred dollars and get used to a different OS environment, but once I do, it will take much harder for me to come back to BB unless I have exceptionally good reason to do so.


I am not asking for awesome WORDS FLY INPUT OPTION for Korean (which I would love to), but let me just simply find my contact by typing in a letter so that I won’t be embarrassed in front of my boss or co-workers. Now, people make fun of my loved BB, because of that simple incident and I don’t like that I think it is absurd.


Hope you guys are getting the message, I don’t know how much longer I can wait until you come up with some solutions and I completely understand your difficulties, I guess, but let us know. If you guys are not planning to support Korean nor Japanese for a while, I need to buy a new phone today. As it is starting to cause some problems at work.


Oh by the way, have you accounted how many Korean or Japanses BB fans out there?? 20M? 30M? I don't know what you guys are doing...


Finally, some of you guys owe some answers for many BB fans out there...



From a long time BB fan, who is about to leave that reputation...
