I got the dev alpha device @ Blackberry Jam,inserted a micro sim card.I am able to hear the ring but not able to answer call. I have searched for that and got to know that there is no phone software in the device right now.
I want to know that will it get that software in future or it will be as it is?Will I be to upgrade that device and test phone functionality?

I don't expect we'll see the actual Messages app on the device until basically when BB10 is ready to launch, but I could be wrong about that. (If I'm right, it would mean the Dev Alpha would never get the full Messages app, since their stated intent is to disabled ("brick") the devices once BB10 ships.)
Speaking to RIM developer relations staff, particularly at BB10 Jam, they seemed to think we'd be getting updates that gave us apps for testing. I can't speak specifically to phone calls, but I was told that things like BBM would be reasonable as otherwise we'd have a lot of difficulty testing our apps. Until we get any official confirmation however it is of course rumour and you shouldn't expect anything.
