we usually choose 5.0 as a baseline, but it depends on the features you want to use.
with 5.0 you cover almost all BB users i think.
you can get an overview about app world stats etc at

(note that the numbers are a bit old) 

feel free to press the like button on the right side to thank the user that helped you.
please mark posts as solved if you found a solution.
