    Using another keyboard language while messaging through Sony Xperia Ion

    Even though there is no problem in using the messaging app through my Sony Xperia Ion, I can’t find an option to type message in a language other than the default one. When I tap on the wrench icon to accomplish this, I can find only the personalized and writing keyboard. What has to be done for typing messages in different language in this android phone?

    At first, launch the messaging app on your phone after tapping over its icon. Once you get into the app, search the for the message conversations. Open a conversation from the list of conversations appears on the screen. You can then find an input box on the screen afterwards. Tap over that box and make a long press on it. On doing so, a list of keyboard option will pop up on the screen. Scroll through that list and select the keyboard you want to add. Get back to messaging app and start typing the message with the new keyboard to confirm the language has changed.

    Hi,
    In order to change the Input Language of your phone you have to open the "Application Drawer" and then select the option as "Language & Input" in that option you will be able to change the settings of the device language select on the keyboard that you are using and then select the option as "Input Language" there you have to deselect the option as Default system Language by doing that you will be able to change the default language of the system once that is done you can again navigate to the Messaging application and then tap on the message body and there you will have the option to enter in the set language.
    Hope this Helps.
