Default 7100i and Spanish SureType

Please Login to Remove!

Does Nextel provided the ability via their software update to add Spanish SureType? I just got a new 7100i and they have the English and French dictonaries already installed, but not Spanish.

I went though this same issue when I had my 7105t from T-mobile. I had to download the v4.x software from an international carrier since T-mobile didn't package it with their distribution of the OS.

I am guessing Nextel is probably the same way.

My concern with doing the same thing as I did before is Nextel is a different animal than the other carriers, especially with their whole "Direct Connect" walkie-talkie feature.

Does anyone have any experience with getting the Spanish dictionary on a Nextel 7100i?? Any assistance would be appreciated.

I was able to find the solution myself and hopefully this will help people in the future.

1) Go to the Nextel Blackberry Page:

2) Under "Software & Upgrades" click on the "Software Updates for BlackBerry 7520 and 7100i" link

3) Download & Install the latest software to your PC

4) Connect your 7100i to your PC & Open the BlackBerry Desktop Manager

5) Select "Application Loader"

6) The wizard will open and under "Supplemental SureType Wordlist" there is a Spanish checkbox. Check it.

7) Click "Next" and the Spanish dictionary will be loaded on to the device.

8) 7100i will may take a few minutes.

To confirm the Spanish dictionary loaded, on the 7100i do the following:

1) Select "Options"

2) Select "Language"

3) Next to the "Language:" the "english (United States)" will be highlighted. Click the track wheel and select "Change Option"

4) A list appears and the "español" option should be there. If it isn' idea why not and either try again or call Nextel.

These directions will most likely work with other BlackBerry models (it did with my 7105)

VERY IMPORTANT: Not all carriers (i.e. T-mobile as of the time of this note) include multi-languages in their software releases. Without the inclusion by the carriers, the directions above are worthless.

Good Luck!
