I’m currently using an HTC phone with Windows Mobile 6, and am looking for a good, preferably free input method for traditional Chinese characters. Having purchased the phone in Europe, it originally displayed all Chinese characters as squares, but I have installed what I think is called ‘A4’ Chinese character input software.
It now displays characters fine, but the problem is that I cannot send any text messages in Chinese. The input method works using pinyin (which I need), and the characters display fine on my phone and when I send them, except the receiving phone only gets a ‘???’ instead of the characters.
Is this because the Taiwanese mobile input method is not based on pinyin? Or is the software simply faulty? If so, can anyone recommend a better one that is proven to work with non-Taiwanese phones texting to Taiwanese phones?
