Will a MIDlet app ported and built for OS 4.6 and up run on devices with lower version, e.g. 4.5 or 4.2?
I got shocked to see it running on older devices. All this time, all I knew was that when you build an app using a particular version, it will not work on devices with lower version.

In fact it is possible to have RIM code run 'back level', provided the APIs used have not been changed. if they have been changed, they you are up for trouble.
In this case, since you are using Midlet code, this is unlikely to have changed and so it may well work. However it is not officially supported. So compile it using the oldest level of OS you want to support.
In this case I suspect you are going to have to download the JDE to get the back level compilation.
