Hello there

I am getting garbage text when i try to import vCard if contains Japanese text.
I could not find any solution, i have tried every encode for japanese (Shift_jis, Euc-Jp, Utf-8... etc) but not have any change

Thanks for any help.
Regards

This is part of my VCF write class

SaveAllEntry.java


I am reading VCF file by following code

BackupPhoneBookList.java


and this is my display class when importing VCF file. Display has no problem.

BackupPhoneBookDetail.java


Where the problems start

WriteContactIntoPhone.java

From my two minutes of googling the subject, all that I can say is that software which is supposed to handle VCF files has all apparently been designed on the assumption that only Latin characters will be used. There's a long list of pages describing how various applications fail when dealing with encodings other than standard Latin encodings.

Dear Paul
Unfortunately i cannot find anything useful.
Japanese language is really pain in the neck.

Do you have any suggestion.

Regards
