Need to Add German to the list of Languages



I would like to find out how to add GERMAN to my Blackberry Storm from Verizon. It only came with English, Spanish and French. My old Blackberry Pearl used to have many more languages.


I hope someone can help.

Re: Need to Add German to the list of Languages

Hi and welcome to the forums!


You may want to check the software from Vodaphone Germany, if you cannot

find the correct module in the Verizon release. If you decide to install the device OS

from a different carrier, you must make sure to delete the Vendor.xml file on the

PC BEFORE installing on the Blackberry.
