Default Bold 9700 with arabic language?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys, recently purchased a Blackberry Bold 9700 in Dubai, got it specially because it had the Arabic letters on the keypad in addition to English. After turning it on I noticed I could choose a number of languages but not Arabic. The phone displays Arabic writing correctly, but I cant write SMS/emails in Arabic. Is this standard? Do I need to install an aftermarket software or is there some update I can get my hands on from Blackberry? Any help will be appreciated.

Specs: Blackberry 9700 Bold
v5.0.0.593 (Platform 5.1.0.147)

Go to the wrech symbol, then to language and text input, what languages do you see in the first choice? Just English? If so, the software only includes English.

You will have to download one of the packages with full BB firmware and reload it.

Then in the initial setup dialogue, make sure you select Arabic as well as English and it will be there to select in the list of device display languages.

Thanks aston99! Yes the first option only says English. So how do I go about downloading on the packages with full BB firmware? Is this something I download through Blackberry or aftermarket? Thanks mate
