Asian Language FAQs

General Information

  1. Which devices have Asian language settings?

    Most smartphones and tablets can now be used in many Asian languages. You can change the language through the Settings menu.

    For device-specific steps, select your device from our Simulator Index page. If you can change the language on your device, there will be a section called "Changing the Language" which will show you how.

    Note: Some older Android™ devices may not have Asian language settings built in. You can download a keyboard for a specific Asian language for your device through Google Play™ Store (formerly Android Market). This will let you send and receive messages in that Asian language, but the language of the operating system on your device won't change.

  2. How do I change the language on my phone or tablet?

    On most phones and tablets, you can find a Language setting in the Settings menu that lets you change the language of your device.

    For device-specific steps, select your device from our Simulator Index page. If you can change the language on your device, there will be a section called "Changing the Language" which will show you how.

  3. Can I send and receive messages in an Asian Language?

    Yes, on most devices, the keyboard language will automatically change when you change the Language setting. So you'll be able to send and receive messages in that language with the Messaging app that comes on your device.

    If the keyboard language doesn't automatically change on your device, you can search for and download a new messaging app or keyboard for a specific Asian language using your device's app store. There are many free and paid messaging apps and keyboards available for Asian languages.

  4. Which Asian languages are supported by different devices?

    The supported Asian languages vary by operating system. You can find the list of supported languages on each device within the Settings menu.

    If you want to purchase a new device with a specific Asian language on it, you can look for a new device at your nearest Verizon Wireless store.

    Note: The supported languages for older Android devices may vary depending on available keyboard apps.
