I bought my wife an 8520 off Ebay. It came with OS 5 but I went back to 4.6 hoping to get the Blackberry Appworld icon to show up as it wasn't there. Well after installing 4.6 that icon showed up but now I cant get the phone to install 5.0. It is for a French provider called Bouygues. I have the correct 5.0 OS 8520wifiM_PBr5.0.0_rel1168_PL184.108.40.206_A220.127.116.11
The update screen gives both OS's with the 4.6 checked. I uncheck 4.6 and select 5.0
but when I go to install it I get this:

I am with Rogers Wireless but the phone is unlocked and for the carrier Bouygues Telecom which is French. How do you go about getting a Blackberry data plan for a phone which is not for your carrier.
