How to add language (Japanese)

Is there anyone who know how to download Japanese language to my AT&T phone, BlackBerry Curve 8310?

 

I installed Desktop Manager on my computer which I got when I purchased. I run Desktop manager with my BlackBerry connected, then run the Application Loader. But I can't find anything to add the Language modules from there.

Here you go! Although it says 9000 you can use the procedure for your specific device and OS.

Bifocals,

 

Thank you!  According to the first information you gave me, I reached to this website and downloaded Japanese font successfully.

Now I can read Japanese.

BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.2.312 (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean)

https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/browseSoftware.do

  

However, I have another problem... I cannot input Japanese to text... I went to "Option" and "Language", but I cannot choose any other language except English. Definitely I can see the application for Japanese characters which was successfully downloaded to my cell phone...

 

Does anyone know about this?

It currently only works well on the 8707h.     Even the Bold/9000 with CJK pack can only display, not input.   My sources tell me that RIM is working on it...

Re: How to add language (Japanese)

Hello there

 

I would like to get your help.  I just got blackberry curve last weekend and am looking to add the Japanese language (Read&write) onto this device. 

 

Through random blackberry forum, I figured out I have to download the software from this site below

https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/browseSoftware.do

 

But my device is 8320 v.4.2.180 (Platform 2.5.0.36).  but I just dont see 8320 on the list of the above website. I am just wondering if 8310 software is compatible to my device 8320. I have downloaded Desktop manager software v 4.6.0.14 with multi language with media manager.

 

PLEASE HELP!
