| | How to install Chinese PinYin input on 8900?
Please Login to Remove!
I have a 8330 with verizon myself. but here I am asking to help my friend. She has a 8900 with T-Mobile. I am trying to figure out how what i need to do in order for her to be able to input chinese using the the pinyin system.
I've downloaded a language update pack ($10) that was very easy to install -- just run the bat file and it installed everything. Unfortunately, the pinyin input did not work correctly. It appears to work, byt the drop-down selection does not match the pinyin. She has down this "all her life" on a PC, so we know her pinyin is correct, just the drop down choices do not match or make sense. The vendor could not figure out what to do.
So here I am, hoping someone has found a way to do this, and will give me some insight? (I am chinese but have lived in the U.S. for 30 years, so i myself is not familiar with the Pinyin system, and defitely not how to make it work on the new 8900 BB.)
BTW, her new BB is a new unlocked Javelin 8900 phone i bought on eBay, a month before it was available in the US. (in case this info helps.)
Thanks for any help.
