First, please make sure the ROM is multi-language, with chinese support;

if it is, you can press Menu when you input the words, select change language, then you will find Pinyin in it.

I searched for "multi-language ROM" and only found this same post. How exactly do you select/install multi-language ROM? This is for an 8800.

Thanks
