Default Accents and umlauts vanish in text messages!

Please Login to Remove!


I've had the BlackBerry Torch for a few years and I've never had problems with umlauts () or accents ( etc) and I frequently type in French, German etc, although the language of my BlackBerry was always set to English.

Yesterday, I accidentally switched my input language to Ellinik and ever since correcting that (and returning to English) my accents and umlauts have disappeared in text messages. I would type them and they would show up in the typing field, but as soon as I send the text, they disappear.
E.g. I would type 'Ellinik' but as soon as I click send it sends as 'Ellinika'.

This only happens in text messages. Accents/umlauts show up fine when I use whatsapp or send e-mails etc.

Any suggestions please? (Please no 'Are you sure you know how to type accents?' as the Blackberry Twitter account responds, I assure you I do )
I fear I've accidentally changed some settings while I was in Ellinik.

Thank you.

Sounds like your settings changed to not accept UTF-8.
