As smartphones, such as the Samsung Wave S8500, become more popular, mobile phone companies have created a demand for these products in users around the world. For the first few years of their production, products like the Samsung Wave came with only a limited number of preset languages, which didn't include Arabic. By adding the Arabic language to your Samsung Wave S8500, you can make your phone more useful.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Samsung Wave S8500

  • Computer

  1. 1

    Download Language Pack 4. Arabic does not appear in any of the language updates to the Samsung Wave S8500 until the fourth language pack. Many users will be able to access this software online, on the Samsung website. If you cannot access this website, you can request the language pack from the Samsung dealership where you purchased your phone.

  2. 2

    Insert the CD into your computer. If you ordered the software by mail or requested it from your dealership, it may come on a CD. Insert this CD into your computer by putting it into the CD/DVD drive and closing the drive, if necessary.

  3. 3

    Install the software. Click the download button on the Samsung website if you did not receive the software on a CD; click "Continue" when your computer asks you if you want to install the software. Follow the instructions onscreen for the set-up, clicking Agree when prompted.

  4. 4

    Connect your phone to the computer. Using the USB cord that came with your original phone, plug the smaller end into your telephone and the flatter, rectangular end into your computer.

  5. 5

    Sync your phone. When your phone appears as an icon on-screen, click on the Samsung Language Pack 4 icon that you just downloaded. Drag this into your phone's icon, and wait as it synchronises. Once the small rectangular synchronising screen has disappeared from the screen, you can disconnect your phone.

  6. 6

    Chose Arabic as your language. On the phone itself, go into "Settings." There, choose "Language," and finally "Arabic." The phone's language should immediately change to the Arabic language.
