Default Emails in Hebrew not displayed right

Please Login to Remove!


I'm on a BBES and when I get emails sent to me in Hebrew, the characters display as squares.

Any ideas. I'm on BB desktop version

Hi. Here is what you need to do. First, make sure your BB has the latest software. I have a 7105t and have installed. Next, connect to the computer and start the Desktop Manager. Go into Application Loader. When you get to the the page that list all the options/programs, look for where you can check a box to add Semetic charachters or fonts (I'm not on my work laptop - cant remember the exact wording). Click next til you get to the confirmation page and then let it update the Blackberry. It will reboot when done and you should now be able to read Hebrew letters. I have not figured out how to reply in Hebrew, but at least no more little squares, just the beautiful Hebrew letters displaying clearly. I have about 20 users in my company that I have had to do this for, but I had to update the handhelds to the latest OS first.

Let me know if you run into problems, be glad to help you out some more if needed.
