Question Chinese Input Method Support on Pearl?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know if there is a BlackBerry OS update available for the Pearl that comes with Chinese Input Method?

I already have Chinese character support for viewing with the most recent OS version of HK CSL but I cannot enter Chinese characters :(

The 8800 already has Chinese input method support but it seems the Pearl doesn't. So it would be great if someone has some news on this.

I just back checked both. I am currently running:

8100C_PBr4.2.0_rel79_PL2.2.0.39_A4.2.0.67_CSL.exe

of HK CSL and that one provides Chinese character support for visualization but not for inputting them. StarHub has this one available

8100C_PBr4.2.0_rel79_PL2.2.0.39_A4.2.0.67_StarHub. exe

Seems to be pretty much the same version. I used the links from Howto upgrade BlackBerry OS. If there are some other resources where I can more recent versions I would be happy to check them as well. ;)

"8100C" ... C stands for Chinese, of course ...

I also tried Multi-Language before. No success.

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry8700/4.2.1 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100)

If you have the chinese OS install on the computer, you can use desktop manager to install chinese input method into you pearl.

Well, that's what I did with the 7290 I have before. But the Chinese Input Method does not appear on the Pearl's BlackBerry Desktop Manager. I took a look into the ALX files and figured that those input methods (japanese and other as well) are for QWERTY devices only.

If it would be so easy I wouldn't ask
