arifz786 your N80 is Arabic.

bagarospo636 and sotiroff, as this is a official Nokia forum you won't find any help here to restore lost languages as it's against the rules of the forum. However it might be worth paying your local service centre or place of purchase a visit.

Re: Question about language pack ? will the updated firmware contain my language pack ??

My Nokia E70 product code is 0527538. What is in the original language pack? At the moment it has English, Indonesia, Malaysia & Philipino. Will it remain the same after upgrading? In my case I do not want Chinese as it will make the browser font smaller. When I first got the phone it has English and Chinese and I requested the Nokia Service Centre to remove Chinese.

albyus, not sure I understand the question?

khokk, you should get English and Chinese again as that's what your E70 originally had if you use the NSU to upgrade your phone.

ray_s, when Nokia manufactures a device, their systems make a note of what language or operator version of phone software (firmware) was put on the device.

Then, when NSU or an official Nokia service center updates the device, the latest version of that firmware will be delivered (otherwise the device might get wrong software, and in the worst situations it might not even work).

Now, if someone (usually an unofficial, often illegal "grey market" importer/reseller) gets devices intended for another market, and (illegally) also replaces the firmware with another version intended for that other market, the buyer ends up with a device that has the language they may want, but it isn't what that particular device should have.

When such a device user updates the firmware using NSU, what gets delivered is not the language version the device has now, but what was put on it originally when it was manufactured.

Currently the only way I'm aware of to safe-guard yourself for such (besides not updating the firmware) is to buy the devices from authorized resellers only (retailers or network operators).

Anyway, this has resulting in the need/desire to compare product codes to figure out what market/region the device was originally intended for, and whether it is safe to use NSU or not (without loosing the languages on the device now).

Thanks for the info. Ray_s. But I wonder how the NSC remove Chinese and add Malaysia, Indonesia & Philipino. As I mentioned in my previous posting the phone had only English and Chinese when I first received it. Maybe it is a new language pack altogether.

Re: Question about language pack ? will the updated firmware contain my language pack ??

I have spent the good part of 3 days in Singapore attempting to change the language from English and Chinese to European. Nokia Service Centre is unwilling to make any change. Are we expected to believe that everyone who works and resides in Singapore speaks ONLY English and Chinese? I have clients in Europe whose only language is French. Moreover what about businessmen in Singapore who are in constant with India does that mean that they now according to Nokia's rules have to learn English or Chinese only so that they can receive a proper email or SMS? how ludicrous is this on the part of Nokia especially when other phone such as Sony Ericsson, Motorola come with MULTI LANGUAGE functionality and we are able to download FREELY from their websites. What century is NOKIA still working do they advocate colonialism?? It would seem so from the way in which they have loaded their E61 phones. I would appreciate if a bright person from NOKIA were to give me an email with a way forward in rectifying the language issue. I CANNOT WORK WITH 2 LANGUAGE AND I CANNOT SEE OTHERS DOING SO EITHER. Small wonder then that this phone has NOT caught on well in Asia compared to the Sony M600i. Again I await an email from a bone fide NOKIA techinician to address this flaw and IT IS A FLAW an ultraistic and racist FLAW!

Re: Question about language pack ?

On some emails, SMS and Docs we all get small rectangular boxes most likely due to the fact that the English font installed on ALL Nokia E61 phones is extremely limited in its character sets. A fix is to provide a font such as "Courier New" which has an EXTENSIVE character set. This by the way is the same issue in MS Word if you use a Font that does not support accents or greek letter i.e. engineering terms. This also would by the way be a fix for individuals that would like to converse in other languages without having to change the language settings which would be incompatible with and will impact the keyboard functionality. Nokia should provide such a complete Font download at once on its firmware updates in regions. It is easy, inexpensive, and a quick fix that would keep your clients around the world happy with the product they purchased as they would be able to converse in ANY language and from ANY Nokia E61 handheld. There would no longer be the need for language packs!
