BlackBerry 10 Language Pack

Hi Everyone,

I have just purchased the BlackBerry Z10 and it doesn't seem to be displaying all the characters like my previous Curve 9360 did when people customised their BBM name and such using fancy text apps. Is there a solution to this? I have checked in the help section but couldn't seem to find it.

Re: BlackBerry 10 Language Pack

It appears the be the same languages that are supported on my BlackBerry Curve 9360 but their custom name appears as boxes with crosses through them. Any suggestions how to solve this? Not essential but would be nice to see their name how they intend it.

Thank you for your question.


Though Korean is a supported display language, Korean text input is currently unsupported.


Thank you.

Re: BlackBerry 10 Language Pack



I consider getting a Passport device. Does OS10 support Russian input or is it read-only?
