I got that.  but there is no Chinese Language for me to change to.  I think it needs to add this language to OS7.0 before I can choose it.

there is no Chinese Language for me to select. It needs to add Chinese Language to OS 7.0 first. Currently, there is only English and Spanish.

Re: How do I add Chinese Language on my Bold 9900

Okay, sorry about that.  Misread your original post.

 

You will need to have the current version of your device OS installed on your PC, as well as Desktop Manager.

 

Here is the latest multilanguage OS from Turkcell, which should have Chinese.

Once you've installed the OS, launch Desktop Manager and follow these instructions:

Re: How do I add Chinese Language on my Bold 9900

Thanks for the lead! 

 

I think your lead might work.  But it is a 220MB package to download.  I was never able to download successfully.  I have tried couple of days and give up. 

 

So sorry that I didn't get back to you early to Thank You.

Hello again!

 

In case there's a misunderstanding, you need to download that OS (the 220mb package) onto your PC, not your device.  Then follow the instructions in the links above to get the language packages installed to your device.

Understood!  I just tried the link again, and don't find the multilanguage OS 7 anymore.

???  I'm there right now and it's showing.

 

Anyway, there's a newer release from Vodafone DE.  Hopefully this one has what you need as well.
