Hi,

 I have an 8900 which a user wants Japanese fonts installed on, however Vodafone doesn't support this firmware version and advise I can upgrade but the firmware will be un supported.

 I've had a look on the web for the East Asian approved firmware which has both English and Japanese, but can only find information for the 9000 series smartphone and not the 8900.

Can anyone advise?

I don't think the 8900 is coming out with Japanese language support for some time, as traditionally it's only offered on devices that support 3G (Japan only has a 3G network with no backwards compatibility for 2G). There isn't as large a market for japanese on an 8900 compared to japanese on 9000 or 9500.

Does your user want japanese input support? or display/render only?

display and render should be fine - is this a possibility?

I *think* it should be available under the "East Asia" pack.

Go here:

and choose Vodafone New Zealand from the Asia-Pacific site.

There's East Asia firmware for the 8900.
