How to change language on my Blackberry?

April 2018

The BlackBerry 8700 mobile telephony device can support languages other than English such as French. To change the language on the Blackberry 8700, "Multi-language handheld software" is required. The Multi-language handheld software can be downloaded from the internet for the particular model of Blackberry and installed. After installing the Multi-language handheld software, the language on the Blackberry can be changed.


I have a Blackberry 8700 but all functions/features are in French and I want to put it back in English!
I've tried to go in Menu/Settings/Setup Wizard/Setup Terminal/ Language...But actually English is not in the list of languages.

What can be done?


From the "BlackBerry Dektop Manager" download and install the "Multi-language handheld software" for your phone (depending on the model).
