Archived:Default encoding of Java Strings is ISO-8859-1 instead of UTF-8 on S60 2nd Edition (Known Issue)
S60 2nd Edition (initial release)
Default encoding is ISO-8859-1 instead of UTF-8.
When using data, which should be UTF-8, do not assume the default charset is UTF-8 but define it explicitly. For example:
String s = new String(byteArray, "utf-8");
