Afrikaans Input and Support Language

I've tried all updates possible, everything is up to date and installed, but I still can't add Afrikaans as an input language on my BB Torch 9800.


Is there a small file that can be downloaded and added under the application to be installed on the desktop software? or is there a firmware that needed to be installed. i tried the one from vadacom and at&t. but nothing seemes to work.

The at&t say to install the downloaded folder connect the devise and it will automatically backup and install the firmware to the device, but that didn't happen even after a restart.


Please advise.


Thank you.

Hello abndaneel,
