    If you can find the correct OS build it is simply a matter of updating your software. I don't see _pt as a language identifier in the 95xx software I have downloaded here but I'm sure it exists, or will exist very soon.

    Really! That is surprising. However there may be two variants of the language. European/ Portugal and South American / Brasil. My cleaning lady is here right nw and she is Portugese and confirms that there really are two variants. From the 8310 4.5.0.110 there are files like this net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__pt.cod and net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__pt_BR.cod. These files are also present in v4.6.1.94 for the 8900. This makes it seem as if they simply forgot to put these in with a couple of 95xx releases.

    European and Brazilian Portuguese is a little more distanced than European and Latin American Spanish, but not by much. Some of it is in how certain suffixes are attached, but most of it is in vocabulary, and most of that is for words that have been created since the separation between Brazil and Portugal, after the Portuguese Royal Court returned to Lisbon.

    But, for example, I know two people, one who was born in Cape Verde and the other who was born in So Tom and both moved to Lisbon as children and both can have perfectly intelligible conversations with a Brazilian I know.

    So I think that it should be fine in either edition.

    That is what I am looking for. I hate having to fight with the spell check on my BB when I am typing out emails.
