Carrier Specific Simulators

Is RIM going to continue to release simulators that are carrier specific as they have done in the past. If not, is it possible for me to customize a simulator for a specific carrier? If so, how? I am not concerned with the exterior branding on the device so much as the carrier specific themes.

 

I provide my help desk with simulators for the specific carriers we use as support tools. The help desk doesn't have any physical devices and are generally unfamiliar with them. Thus the simulators are extremely helpful when guiding customers from screen to screen on an unfamiliar device. Since a lot of carriers use custom themes having a simulator that properly reflects the differences is perferred.

 

Thanks,

Doug

Sorry to dredge this topic up again, but is it possible to have a single application for the simulators, use plug-ins for the different carriers/os levels/bb models/etc rather than downloading different simulators for all the models?
