E72 support language in UAE

Hi just bought a new E72 in Dubai.

 

Can I know whether it can support to read both traditional chinese and simplified chinese?

Re: E72 support language in UAE

A Nokia phone bought in an Arabic-speaking region will not support Chinese.

 

You can have a Nokia Care Point install a Chinese language pack, but then the phone will no longer support Arabic.

 

A Nokia phone cannot support both Arabic and Chinese at the same time.

Re: E72 support language in UAE

I don't mind that it doesn't support arabic.

 

but i did make a call to nokia care centre , one of them saying that i can change it to support chinese but one of them saying that they don't have the language support for Arabic.

 

Can I confirm whether I really can do the convertion to support Chinese, even it didn't support Arabic.

 

And where can I do the changes?

 

Thanks a lot

Re: E72 support language in UAE

You can't make the change yourself. Installing a language pack requires software to which only Nokia Care Points officially have access.

 

Technically speaking, a Care Point can install any language pack on your phone. Whether or not they're aware of this is another matter. However, the fact remains that there is no language pack that supports both Chinese and Arabic, so I can confirm that you will lose Arabic support if you have the Chinese language pack installed.

Re: E72 support language in UAE

That's nonsense. It's available anywhere.

Are there other care points in Dubai that you can try for a second opinion?

Re: E72 support language in UAE

As mentioned above.. you will have to visit Nokia Care and request them to install the Chinese Language Pack...

Be aware that any Firmware update will remove this language pack..and you will have to get it re-installed..
