How to add additional fonts

Hi Guys,


I wanted to add an additional font for Arabic? I have already downloaded the Arabic Language pack and it is working fine. Now I would like an additional font for viewing arabic emails and docs. Can anyone help?

Arabic Available for Blackberry Storm - here's how:

You have to to first update the OS to v4.7.0.83 then when you connect your blackberry to your computer and run the desktop manager go into the settings before uploading and choose English and Arabic or any of the other languages. Then when the upload is complete and you disconnect the blackberry from the computer it will ask you what language you want to use, choose english and the other selected language such as Arabic. If you do not select Arabic it will be removed from your blackberry, however you can still read arabic emails and texts.

Before posting this thread I tried it my self and it works fine. I typed an email in Arabic from my blackberry storm and I also sent my self an email from my computer to my blackberry storm and it also worked fine.

P.S. Make sure you don't pay $10 like suggested on other websites. This info is free and there is no need to pay.
