    With my previous version, I use Pinying input and type in traditional Chinese even though I'm from Taiwan and I'm very happy with my passport. But after the recent update to, the choice of pinying input into traditional Chinese is gone! Now all I get are simplified Chinese words and it takes lots of time to select traditional words which r positioned after the simplified words and some times it doesn't even have the words in traditional Chinese!!!!! And the hand writing input takes ages!!! And what's the point buying a blackberry when u can't type?
    I'm one of the few blackberry supporters in Taiwan and if this problem is not solved,i guess I'll just have to give up on blackberry.....

    Can anyone please help!!!

    I am on the newest OS. Using traditional Chinese on my Q10.

    Honestly do not see a difference with the previous OS.

    Perhaps you need to disable it, try a different one and switch back? Maybe try resetting?

    Thx jamma! I tried to select the input method(which it says only 3 input methods r allowed,but I actually ticked 4 of them: English, japanese, traditional Chinese hand writing , pinying simplified chinese),but there is no such option as pinying under the traditional Chinese category,only 筆劃和手寫. What do u suggest me to do? Switch everything off and turn it back again? Btw,how do u get the version? Is that the latest one? Where did u get ur device?

    Use the Simplified one. Mine got replaced with that one, but when you type it with the system language wet to TChinese, it prioritizes traditional results.

    Hmm never tried typing a whole phrase, you're right.

    Maybe because my typing history was all in traditional.

    That I'm not sure. I actually use handwriting more these days, since there's no Cantonese input.

    Hey guy, it is possible to type in Traditional Chinese using pinyin. I chose input by pinyin 简体 but 繁体 does show up!

    聽 vs 听。 They do show up!

    Yes I am aware of that but what I mean is that the traditional Chinese won't come as the default Chinese as the previous version anymore! When u type a sentence it will show up the simplified Chinese first and then you'll have to select each word or phrase one by one into traditional chinese,it really isn't the most efficient way to type and it takes up lots of time! And some traditional words are missing such as 點!it only has 点!

    I would like to say that the traditional chinese input became a mess after BBOS moved to 10.3.2.
    It was working nicely 10.3.1 (even it was a bit sloppy )

    Blackberry doesn't seems to care about the error they created and whats the point for us to keep use BB devices if we need to type a lot of Chinese words?

    Maybe I should switch back to iOS. At least they don't create troubles that often. BB phones are not cheap and they are keep creating troubles to customers. As a system administrator myself, by seeing a company mess up with basic things to end-users, I won't recommend their products to management because they may harm your own job in future.

    Is there any way to extract TChinese input language component from the previous 10.3.1 OS and then reload it to 10.3.2?
    Any one?

    When you upgrade to OS 10.3.2,the TChinese was gone away. You can use 自建字庫 method to store TChinese font

    The real problem is blackberry will still keep ignoring the problem?
    We are not android users and we should be punished by this kind of problems.

    I switched from iOS to BBoS since Z10 because of OS simplicity and security. Now the chinese IME became a mess which shouldn't be. And BlackBerry is going to tell you that Android is secure enough ?

    If they could mess up a major IME for a year without a doubt fix, I wonder if they can fix those android security holes which Google can't deal with.
