Yes, you can. I think you mean Address Book contacts, right?

You have two options:

- Install Greek version of Blackberry OS which supports input in Greek.

- Send yourself email from desktop (with Greek language support) in UTF-8 (UNICODE) to blackberry, with body of email containing all names and titles and everything else you want to have in your contacts, in Greek. Copy and Paste names and contacts from body of email you received on blackberry to its address book.

Works for any other language supported by blackberry. By supported I mean you can send email to blackberry in that language and you can read that email from your blackberry.
