Default Need to VIEW Chinese Characters

Please Login to Remove!

I am thinking of purchasing a Blackberry Pearl. I live in China, but am American. I would like my pearl to be able to display simplified Chinese (so that I can show it to a taxi driver to get me to a hotel, for example) but I would never need to write the characters. I would import them with contacts from my computer or get them from a text message sent to me.

Does the Pearl operating system support this?

Thanks so much

You will need to make sure your device has installed an operating system with Chinese language available.

For example, this OS (linked here) is Chinese-English. There are other 'multi-language" OS that do not include Chinese.
