Based on my "How To", to change the Smartphone input language to another than the UI language, my fellow MVP Marc Zimmermann, developed a small free tool called "T9 Config Utility" which is available from Handango now:
By default, the Smartphone 2002 platform links the phone user interface language and T9 predictive text input language. For example, this linkage effectively makes writing German text with an English language phone impossible.
This program allows you to make these assignments freely and according to your preferences.
Please keep in mind that the T9 Config Utility is neither certified nor signed. Therefore, it can only be used on application certified unlocked phones.
Great work Marc! Something which is really handy! :-)
This is great, it's something that we were discussing over at Modaco but weren't sure how it could be achieved without a power down. I noticed that your util requires one, which is a shame from my point of view, I'd like to be able to change languages as often as I write smses... Can you conceive of a way to achieve this without a powercycle?

@John Douglas: No, you can't do it without a softreset, not with the manual version I've posted nor with Marcs tool since it required a Registry change which means the phone has to be "soft-reseted". :-(
It's not perfect but better then nothing... ;-)

There is NO way (unfortunately) to get a T9.dll from the Smartphone and copy it to another Smartphone.
Several people has tried several ways - all without any success... :-(

 same problem of my italian friends... need to have the t9italian.dll file. I've seen there is no way to have it as a specific file, than my question is: is there any alternative way to have my smartphone 2002 software upgraded to italian? Can't I purchase an upgrade kit???

Any dutch T9 files someone? I would like to search for a way to do this, but first I need the necessary dll(s) to begin trying.
I would like to try it on the emulator I have on my visual studio, so I don't mess up my brand new SP3i
You can mail the dll to dotnetconsultant AT gmail.com Thanks!
