Hi, My boss has given me a Motorola V3x mobile phone which was a special from Vodafone. The choice of languages does not include Chinese.

When I go to China, and put in a local sim card, all the messages that appear look like a series of squares. Not very useful!!!

I went to Vodafone to ask whether I can download something from the net to enable Chinese as a language choice so that I can ask someone to interprete the Chinese characters. They don't think it can be done.

Does this mean that I have to purchase another hand phone in China itself, in order to have Chinese as a language?

Not sure about Chinese, but had no problem with adding another language to my wife's Motorola V360. Just found a firmware with that language support in the Internet and updated the phone. The phone has been working fine for more than two years ever since. Anyway you should be careful and read a lot before doing that. There is some risk to kill the phone.
