Default New Blackberry In Chinese

Please Login to Remove!

Hello All, I want to purchase a new Blackberry from Hong Kong, although the dealer tells me that the unit will boot in chinese. My question is when i first turn the unit on will it prompt me for the language, or can I re-install the ROM in English? Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Yes, you should just be able to install the new OS in english, although if you want to use chinese, you need the CJK.

I purchased my Curve 8900 right in HK and it came in with East Asian Language firmware.

However, you can flash with Mulitilanguage firmware (or any other) if you want to get rid of it, or vice versa.

The Curve that I bought is sim-free, I can insert any SIM that I want, although you might install service books automatically from the carrier that you have on the SIM.
