bb widget not working on os 4.6

i'm using eclipse 3.4.1 with web plug-in 2.0


the app loads fine on 5.0 os but anyone with 4.6 they get 3 errors (from memory something to do with the browser & 2 others)


i dont really want ppl to force to ugrade as the widget i dont think should need 5.0   (the only "feature" i added in config was "blackberry.invoke.PhoneArguments" as 90% of the content in our app has telephone numbers (as href links) (its a mini yellow pages type app) although it does have web links


i cant see in the eclipse project where i can force the widget to be 4.6 compatible


the existing jad file is here:

BlackBerry Widgets require OS 5.0.  The pieces of technology required to make widgets work are only available on OS 5.0 and above.
