am asking about arabic language support, i need to at least be able to read the text sms and emails i recieve in arabic, if not the internet browser.
after playing with the phone i found out that the browser settings have the arabic encoding of windows 1256 and the ISO 8859-6..
this was promisng, but the charecters are simply not there at the moments.
Ive been contacting vodafone for a week now. and appearently they have no clue.
ive tried to contact RIM support, but the only way of contact i found was this forum..
Do any of you have an idea when is the arabic language pack is going to be available. and is there any arabic input in there plans ?

Arabic Available for Blackberry Storm - here's how:
You have to to first update the OS to v22.214.171.124 then go 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.

Thanks for the Info.
I have updated first with OS .85
Then did what you said...and unfortunately I dont get any Arabic keyboard, therefore I cant write in arabic.
But I get the arabic menu etc.
Can you help?
I even tried on 2 different Storm 9500. First one I put Arabic first and english second, the sendonc one the contrary. Still the same result.
Thanks a lot in advance for your help.

Every time I try to update the OS it does not show other than 126.96.36.199 and the desktop software dose not give the option to download. So how can I get the .85 any idea any one?
