    hi everybody,

    although i know this request is probably outdated taking into account BlackBerry's venture into the realms of Android (where the above mentioned problem does not exist i suppose), i created a little something to appeal to the company, which phones we love so much.

    here's my petition to BlackBerry to finally make decent support for all Eastern European languages, which is the only reason i don't want to buy Q10 / Classic in particular: bit.ly/EasternEuropeanLanguageSupport (sorry, as a newcomer i can only post links like this )

    please feel free to share this and add more languages here under this thread as i will try to update my petition with other Eastern European languages i might missed.

    let's make this happen!
    thank you!

    Petition Support for Eastern European languages on Blackberry 10 OS

    Anyway, BB seems to have "atoned" for this with their latest Priv keyboard update...

    Good 4 u, danif! But Latvian, Lithuanian, Estonian, Belorussian, Ukrainian, Slovak, Slovenian, Albanian, Bosnian, Serbian, Bulgarian, Macedonian, Montenegrin do not have, so your statement that "There is decent Eastern European languages support" is false.

    Could you please tell since when Latvian, Lithuanian, Estonian, Slovakia, Slovenian are located in Eastern Europe? Could you post screenshots of the other eastern European language not supported?

    You could always use google before... but here you go:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter...y_developments
    Countries of Eastern Europe - Guide Introduction

    Here's "workaround" app at least for not supported Eastern European virtual keyboard layout letters, but it's definitely not a solution:

    + BB10OS have a huge lack of OS translations/localization. You can read more about this in my thread:

    Hi,
    I understand those who wants to type in their language. While I do not hope for fast solution from BlackBerry side, there is a trick I now use to type in Ukrainian. May be you can modify it to suite your purposes.

    Hello.
    Can you name ir show that atone?
    Would be happy to see those languages in 10.3.3 update.
    Used to play with v2 bb keyboard on Android, symbols were available, but no dictionary what so ever.

    Still having my beloved z30 in a drawer. I have said to myself, if Lithuanian would be added someday in 3th or 4th update, I gonna use that phone till it last. So, let's hope so.

    and yes, thanks you for sharing the petition.
    i know that the chances are thin for a huge Canadian company to see this as an issue especially knowing the max potential of that market, however considering the physical keyboard as their killer feature for writing (!!!!!) i don't see how adding capability to communicate with a few additional characters could be such a problem.
