Re: error 5211

The reason is simple: the developers seem to never check if the software would work on localized Windows/Blackberry  OS. It looks like they are not aware of the fact that there are Windows/Blackberry OS in many other languages besides English where Unicode is used. The 5211 error makes it impossible to synchronize any information presented in Unicode (that is, anything written in Russian, for example). The same is true for many apps in BB World: they just do not work on localized (Russian, French, etc.) BB OS. So the reason behind all this is pure ignorance and having the false idea that the entire world uses English only.
