Re: How to detect whether the device support unicode

All BlackBerry devices support unicode.

 

What may not be installed are the fonts/input language support for some of the languages. Install the language support for your intended language using desktop manager and you will be good to go.

Rectangle means language support for that language is not installed. What is the language and what device?

Can you read a mail in that language on that device? If yes, then there is a problem with your code. If not, then you do not have the language installed on the device.

I guess 95xx did not support indic languages. The support came in OS 6.0
