Default Japanese on the 8100?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I did some searching around the forums, but couldn't find any answers that pertained to the 8100.

Does anyone know how I can get Japanese font support on the pearl? I don't need Japanese input (though that would be nice). I just need the ability to read japanese email and web sites.

I am comfortable upgrading/installing OS's on my phone.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I have read about a japanese.alx file for other bberry's. Does anyone know where I can find it, and if it will work with the 8100?

Default Japanese on Pearl

I updated by firmware to:
BlackBerry Handheld Software v4.2.1.154 (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean)
which was available from my carrier (at&t).
Go to: BlackBerry - BlackBerry Desktop and Device Software Download Sites
select AT&T, BlackBerry Pearl (8100C) (AT&T) and you'll see the software.
It works perfectly on Japanese.

does this allow you to type in romaaji and have it converted to katakana?
