Change language package?

I bought a phone that showed out to have English and French as its language pack, but I need the Scandinavian. I can't even write SMS messages in my own language with this phone, which is hopeless. Can I change the language pack easily to Scandinavian languages, and how? It's a Nokia 5230.

You will need to take it to a Nokia care point to install any language pack!

Change language package?

I bought a  Nokia 5230 3G mobile that showed only English as its language pack, but I need the Hindi also. I can't even write SMS messages in my own language with this phone, which is hopeless. Can I change the language pack easily to Hindi languages, and how? It's a Nokia 5230.

According to what I have been informed from Nokia service partner i Denmark telephone will always go back to the initial language after performing an update of the telephone software and the costly update with a Danish (or other) language pack will then be lost. Anyone aware if this is really true ???

Recent phones that have 'User Data Protection' should conserve an added language pack in a normal software update via NSU or Ovi Suite, though added packs would be lost if the phone was hard-reset or re-flashed by a Nokia service point.

Do you have to pay for the language pack?

If you can manage with english language in the menus and you can deal with just having additional writing language, you may install swype from Nokia Betalabs.

 

Swype from Nokia Betalabs

 

A lot of language packs (more than 30) are available in swype, dont know about Hindi though.

 

I use it on Nokia 701 with english menus and swedish writing language for instance.

 

 

Nokia 808 again (delight Belle), Nokia E7 and X7 ( again, all on Delight Belle...after some time on Nokia Lumia 925 (retired), 1020 (not that great)and Lumia 820 (Replaced my router at home, great for internet sharing).., N9 The best device ever (use it as much as Lumia 1020), Nokia 700 (Sport Phone/My Love :-) ) Nokia 701, Nokia E6 (Should have a follow-up from Nokia among with larger screen, NFC, Autofocus), Lumia 800 (Retired After 6 weeks), -Sports Tracker-Nokia Internet Radio-Handy Safe-Skype-Bambuser-Screenshot app pro-fMobi-ComingNext-Manual TaskSwitcher-jagiTimer-Easy StopWatch-Boldbeast-Equalizer-Financial Calculator-WiMP Music-YTasks-Davi-Thumbnail Folders-BizCalendar-Tiny7-Situations-nn reeder-Sport Timer-CameraLover-CameraPro-GrabRadio-LiveScore-Poddi-Gravity-SkyFilesPro

Didn't you ask them WHY ? And also, then WHO DOES ? Contact Nokia India thru' the 'Nokia Support' tab at the bottom of this page and get clarification ...
