Question Japanese language support

Hi, everyone.

I recently got my X6 after using my 3220 for quite a while. I was looking around for some information about getting Japanese language support for the X6, but all I found was a thread ( for the Nokia E75/S60 3.2. Seeing as this is my first Symbian phone, I'm not really sure what to do. :( Is there anyone that can help me/point me in the right direction?

I looked around a bit more and found this (, but the page was last updated three years ago, and only has instructions for two phones.

I've downloaded about three fonts off that Japanese page so far, and made a 'Fonts' folder under 'Resource' on my phone, and that's as far as I've gotten. Still doesn't work.

Seeing as I mainly just view Japanese or Chinese text on my mobile, I don't really need to have the ability to input Japanese, but if it's possible, that would be really good, too.

EDIT: I downloaded the Psiloc Japanese Reader (,UserGuide) for the X6. When installing, it says that the app isn't supported by the phone, but I installed it anyway. I can read Japanese text on my phone now. Kanji text is fine, but the hiragana and katakana is smaller and a bit hard to read. You won't be able to resize the fonts because there isn't a left/right key on the X6 (volume rocker doesn't work for it), but it's still good. It's also a free download.
