how to install chinese input for bold 9900 OS 7.1 ?????????

Tried going through the 'Blackberry Desktop and Device Software Sites' but my service provider is not listed so cannot continue with the instructions as per Blackberry Knowledge Base link.

OS 7.0 had it already installed on the phone but has disappeared for 7.1

So how can I put chinese input onto my device please?

Hi carefactor0


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums



If your Carrier is not listed , then you can use any other Carrier OS pack , but have to delete two or three VENDOR . XML files , If you are willing to go , then try this :


1.Download and Install on your PC an  OS pack having All Language  from here  Carriers

  • ( Make sure you are downloading for the same device model )

2.Search your C: drive for Vendor.xml and delete them, there may be one or two vendor.xml ( On your Pc change your folders option to show hidden files/folders ) :


  •     C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader
  •     C:\Users\Windows UserName\AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML


Once completed Open BlackBerry Desktop Software ( 7.1 ) > Select Applications. > In the Language and Input Support section, select the language to be added to the BlackBerry smartphone (a + will appear next to the language to install) > Click Apply.
