Hello all,

I've recently installed a trial of CE-Star to try out Chinese language input and support on my Okta Touch. It works ok with input and displaying Chinese text, however whenever I send messages, it appears to get stripped out even when sending to myself.

Does anyone have any recommendations on how to send Chinese characters over TCNZ SMS?

The issue is not with CE-Star, but with the TCNZ SMS service. Since many of the older handsets on the Telecom network are not capable of handling Asian characters (receiving Asian based SMS causes some of them to power cycle), the chars have been removed form the SMS service all together, and once coming into the SMS centre are been replaced with blank spaces.
Therefore there is little you can do to txt Chinese chars. What you can try, however, is install IM+ (IM+ on Geekzone) and use the ICQ SMS service. This will bypass the Telecom SMS centre and send the Asian chars through. Keep in mind though, that if you will be txting Telecom recepients, the Asian chars will be still removed, as they will be handled by the Telecom SMS centre inbound.
