    Prior to updating to the latest BB10 OS, I could read and type in clear Arabic characters. Now that I have the latest update, it is all very bad.

    In English language they got bold and italic.
    In Arabic we got:
    Some one in the OS development team thought it would be "cool" to change from number 1 to number 3
    Although the common and official government correspondences is #1
    I wish if he thought #2 was the cool because that would really F***up arabs beyond recognition lol

    Thanks for the info.

    Someone needs to inform them to sort that out right quick. I now hate typing in Arabic and there is nothing I can do about it. I even considered falling back to my previous OS version before I did the upgrade. How can they be informed of this?

    although I ordered my Passport with English Keyboard and don't type in Arabic but I do agree, messages received in Arabic look nasty before and after 10.3

    Have you checked out the Silent Keys app in BlackBerry World?

    I also hate typing in Arabic with the new font. 10.2 was perfect. There is no way that a native Arabic speaker chose that garbage font.

    I hope BlackBerry comes to their senses and goes back to the old font.

    I just a play around on my Passport.
    It's a bit strange behavior where I cut and pasted the Arabic text in Email Compose and Remember app. There seems to be hidden text.

    Check the difference between the title and additional notes fields.
    Once it changes the font type, it keeps using the changed one.

    Why are the Arabic characters looking so awful since my updating to
