I am having Lenovo/A269i model/Android 2.3.6 version.The Tamil SMS & Whatsapp cannot be read.The Tamil letters displays are in square format. What can I do? Is there any upgraded software? Why Tamil language is not supported in this type of mobile? The Tamil Input also cannot be read.I enquired most of the people but they don't reply properly.

Unable to read Tamil version text in Android 2.3.6 smart phone? Know whether any upgraded software is available to be able to do so.

Unfortunately, I do not think you have any option to view the Tamil fonts on your phone. The issue does not exist in the system settings. I guess the ROM is based in China and that exactly is the root cause of the issue.
One of the options you have is to visit the service centre and ask them to install the ROW - Rest of the World ROM. However, I am not sure you can get such a ROM.

Android has support for Tamil fonts and keyboard through external apps. You don't get the i18n support out of the box. So you have to download the apps and keyboard that supports the font. Ezhuthani is the keyboard that supports tamil fonts and the keyboard layout too. It does seem to have the swipe option for auto-correct too. Please do check if the vendor offers any i18n support before you download any third party app or keyboard.
