    Connect to Kies and check if have update. When I got it, it didn't have Chinese input either. After the first update it did. It really depends on where you are from though.

    Else, find a language pack from market. I know its available (another friend got it before the update) but since I don't read chinese, didn't bother with it.

    Cheers

    Not very sure about "transplanting" firmware. I do know that when it was launch in Malaysia, some netizens were mentioning that it was a Europe version, and that Samsung was rushing out the phone such that it didn't create a specific firmware for the locality.

    Firmware update a month later gave some local languages.

    In the mean time, I do know a friend that installed a chinese language pack before the update. Not sure how it was done, but at least can tell you it can be done. Try a google search?

    I didn't try that, you have to read carefully construction.
    connect kies is ok, but no upgrade function.
    I always flash with Frankenstein one with and use with Touchpal.
