Re: blackberry Curve 8530 simulator language input

Hi there,


As per the following knowledge base article about how to change the language in the simulator:




1) Navigate to the simulator's folder:

C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Smartphone Simulators 5.0.0\ (8530)


2) Edit the 8530.xml file


3) Ensure the following setting is defined (if not add it) :



4) Save the file and start/restart the simulator


5) When the sim boots up, go to Options --> Languages and you should be able to select Arabic



Hope that helps,
