Here is my understanding as a developer: Android 1.5-2.1: Right-to-left support is built-in, but most ROMs do not contain the letters. This means that Hebrew in most applications will show up as boxes (but in the correct order). This does allow individual applications to include their own fonts and thereby display Hebrew correctly. Android 2.2: The ...

Froyo/Android 2.2 added support for displaying text in Hebrew and Arabic (among other languages), including the needed fonts. Unfortunately, previous versions do not have Hebrew support in the stock source, though I would not be surprised if a device maker added support to their device on an ad-hoc basis.

If you root your Vibrant, you should be able to get Hebrew characters support, as described here. Basically you are just overwriting a system default "fall-back" font with the one that has Hebrew. This will get your phone to recognize the incoming text. Next you can install a virtual keyboard with a language pack, such as AnysoftKeyboard and the Hebrew ...

Unfortunately I don't think you can. It looks like Samsung hasn't released a Hebrew version. See this related question: Does Froyo include full Hebrew support for all devices? as well as Is Hebrew support built into Android?

It seems that the problem was the encoding that Windows Media Player used. It uses the Windows Hebrew code-page (1255). I used foobar2000 with the Chacon plugin to change it to the Mac Hebrew code-page (10005) which seems to be supported by my phone.

They are trying to fleece you. Do not agree to that, nor to the other tricks they employ trying to fork more money from you (the basic color is not in stock etc.)

Try using a 3rd-party keyboard replacement app. I've previously used AnySoftKeyboard, and can confirm that it does show word suggestions on other languages. For Hebrew you would need to install the corresponding language pack as well.

Two possibilities: Side load flash with the APK found here, and then run Dolphin browser to access the flash site Try running the site through FlashFox app as it has built in flash (no need to sideload anything)

You need to look for hebfix or RTL fix. Unfortunately, I was unable to find a direct download link. Hope this is enough to get you started. A good place to look would be http://iandroid.co.il or http://www.xda-developers.com/. If you find a good link to download from, you can update my answer :)

From my experience I would guess you've bought a device imported by a private store rather from a local carrier, the people where you bought it should have replaced the stock rom into a hebrew supporting one after opening the package. I had the same thing done to my device after purchase and it won't void your warranty in any way. either ask them to do so ...

Just had a look on my UK Froyo Galaxy S, if I go into the Locale and Text menu, I can't see any options for Hebrew in there, and looking at keyboard settings I can't see any Hebrew options for input language on the Swype or Samsung keyboards either. Looking at first party Google apps on the Market I see IMEs for Pinyin (Chinese) and Korean, nothing for ...

Can't answer for Galaxy S, but it works on my LG Optimus T. One approach might be to go to the store and try the built-in browser on a web page with Hebrew. As long as that works, I suspect you'll be OK. Perhaps they will say that for $75 you also get a Hebrew onscreen keyboard... but if so, you could probably skip that and try "Any Soft Keyboard" with the ...
