Question on Languages, OS:es and providers.

[ Edited ]

Background. I am Swedish but currently in Spain  (Gran Canaria). My Spanish is very rudimentary. I am doing development work on Blackberry. Development has been with simulators and others have performed "physical" testing. My code is for background processing so languages is not a problem.

 

Telefonica has an offer for a 8520 Curcve that seem attractive. I can se that Telefonica offers a download of :

 

Package Version: 4.6.1.411
Consisting of:

  • Applications: 4.6.1.274
  • Software Platform: 4.2.0.118
  • File name: 8520wifijAllLang_PBr4.6.1_rel411_PL4.2.0.118_A4.6.1.274_Telefonica.exe
  • File size: 133.59MB
What does "Software Platform: 4.2.0.118" mean?? is the OS  4.2?? Looking at simulators the choices for OS is 4.6 and 5.0

 

Must I use the providers version if I use them as a carrier?

Can I switch language to English for the phone and apps?

Can I upgrade to OS 5 from "somewhere else" and still use them as a carrier?

 

I really would like to be able to test our app on a real OS 5 device and I for sure dont want the phone to talk to me in Spanish.

Think I found the solution. Vodaphone Spain offers:
