Re: Downloading Chinese language for Torch 9800 on Mac

Hello King_lau and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Language support packages are determined by the wireless service provider. You will have to contact AT&T (the branded carrier for the device) and inquire if this is a language they support for installation.


If they do support the language package, check out KB19937 which talks about how to add applications/language packages using a Mac and Desktop Manager.

Re: Downloading Chinese language for Torch 9800 on Mac

Hi there.


It is not determined by the network carrier if you wish to add/remove language from your BB. I am a MAC user and using Torch as well over here in Singapore.



Apparently Blackberry is build under more towards Window Based apps. They do not have any language pack ready for MAC at all.


You have no choice might want to use one of your friend's PC to upgrade and install the Chinese input into your Torch.




WARNING : after upgraded I am unable to send photo via BBM or even upload photo via FB.
