Default Changing the input method

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I have installed a chinese OS on my Blackberry and want to switch between the chinese and english input method while writing. Currently I have to switch the task, go to Options -> Language -> Input Method and change it. It's really a pain. Any ideas on how to change the input method on the fly?

thanks!

Oliver

Sorry, but there is no way to change language on the fly. Not normally something people change frequently.

Ouch. That seems like it would be a pain to do every time.

Have you tried looking for 3rd party solutions? There are keyboard programs out there. I would look for them for you, but my connection stinks tonight.

Works great. Using to change from French to English and spellcheck also works. Bilingual - Same as Alt Shift in Word. Montreal, Quebec
