The Samsung Galaxy Note features support for numerous keyboard languages, but only a handful are activated on the phone by default. These default language(s) vary with the region in which the phone was purchased, but are tied to the base system language. This means that to access keyboards in other languages, you have to unlock the system language and activate the desired keyboards.

Step 1

Launch "Settings," and then select "Language and Input."

Step 2

Tap "Configure Input Methods."

Step 3

Tap "Active Input Methods" under the "Android Keyboard" heading.

Step 4

Uncheck the "Use System Language" check box. This unlocks the other active input methods for use.

Step 5

Select the check boxes for the keyboards and/or voice input methods you wish to add. This adds them for use during text input, as long as you use the standard Android keyboard.
