You can add languages to your BlackBerry by using the desktop manager. You will first need to download a copy of the phone os that is compatible with your device, you can find that information on this forum in the section created for your model. You can then go through the instruction and use the dm to select the language.

Yes, from ny carrier will work so long as its for your device and you delete the vendor.xml file (instructions are in the sticky posting for your model).

I would suggest that you backup the data on your sd before you do the upgrade as you may need to reformat it after the upgrade in order for the new os to recognie it, or to eliminate any issues arising from the upgrade and the sd card.

Well I cannot tell you for sure if the updated multilanguage OS that you will be downloading will have arabic in there, sorry. I would only be able to verify that if I was the one that created it. Outside of the carrier putting it there, I don't know of any other way. What you could do is find out if a carrier in a country that does speak/write arabic has a OS out and then you could use that one.

I just checked one of my DM for the versions of the OSes that I have installed (I have for different models) and I checked under the language section of the OS upgrade and Arabic was there, so I guess its safe to say that once its multilanguage then its gonna be there.

In most cases Yes. However, you might want to resend the service books to your phone. You can either do that by logging into the BIS service of your carrier or call them or if you're on a BES, then you can ask your BES admin to resend them to you.

BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service) is when you get your service only through your carrier, BES (BlackBerry Enterprise Service) is when you're connected to your company's server.


So BIS=Carrier, BES=Company. Please note that you can also have both on the same device.

Service books are, hmmm, configurations that your BlackBerry needs to perform its duties.
