How to display and type in Chinese on BB bold 9000?

Hey, I'm a new user of BB bold 9000. Just bought the phone from the states, which was distributed by AT&T and it is unlocked.


I have tried couple times by following this post:





In the aforesiad post, instrucation was given as:



  1. install Desktop Manager without Media Manager on your PC
  2. install the handheld software on your PC (it will install inside the Desktop Manager)
  3. seaarch for a file called vendor.xml and rename it to vendor.xml.toto or anything else
  4. plug your BlackBerry device to the PC, and launch the Desktop Manager
  5. in the application section, you can see the OS of 2) and install it to your BlackBerry device."



Basically what I did was to install Desktop Manager without Media Manager (5.0) version on my PC and installed the handheld software 4.6


I noticed that there's no Chinese language selection (basically no Asian languages) and I then tried 4.6 Desktop Manager which still didn't work.


Also, I am not able to find the "vender.xml", wondering if this has any impact on the application.


What should I install to display and type in Chinese? Any inputs will be appreciated!

Hello josejr,


To ensure the desired language is supported, you should contact your wireless service provider.


Thank you and have a great day!
