Read & Send SMS in Urdu/Arabic

Read & Send SMS in Urdu/Arabic

It is a well known fact that this forum has members from many countries around the globe. For those members using Arabian/Urdu as your main language, XDA member fehaan posted a tutorial on how to enable it on Windows Mobile devices.
.cab files have been tested on a HTC Wizard running WM6.5, but the developer mentions that it could work on older versions as well.

YES!!!
You can easily turn ur wm6.5 to read & write in Urdu/Arabic while at the same time send/ receive text in the same.

P.S. This method may work on early Windows Mobile versions but I have tested on my WM6.5 K-JAM.

Step-1:
Download the attached zip file Urdu-Arabic Language Support for WM6.5.zip) and extract all its contents to desktop.

Step-2:
install the cabs in their numeric order (e.g. first file is numbered as “1.Language Support WM6.5.cab” so install it first and then the cab numbered “2.***”).

Step-3 (optional):
install other keyboards with urdu/Arabic support and copy the fonts-pack to Windows directory of your Pocket PC in case if u don’t see the urdu/arabic letters on Keyboard.

Thats it!

Please reply me for any confusions/guidance futher. and if it works, send me your wishes and regards here…

You can find more information in the application thread.
