Q: Texting in Chinese on a prepaid cellphone

I'm planning to live in China for a while and I want to be able to call/text in country and internationally. Meaning I am looking for a prepaid UNLOCKED GSM cellphone that can text both in English and Chinese. I'm still in the States.

My question is that do I buy a phone online and download some software onto my phone in order to text in Chinese or do I have to find a specific phone that does both languages? I need help! If I have to download the software, can someone please send me a link to that download. I would really appreciate that!

I have been searching through google for the past couple weeks and I'm not getting any results. I already have a SIM card ready for a unlocked gsm phone. Thanks!
