Character encoding on BlackBerry phones



I was wondering if character encoding is supported (i.e. UTF-8) on OS 5 and 6.. Characters show as blocks that are non-latin, Korean, or Japanese.

Re: Character encoding on BlackBerry phones

Java on BlackBerry is guaranteed to support UTF-8 (since like OS 3.x?), though you may not have the right fonts installed to view Japanese or Korean characters.
