Default don't bury yourself

Just a thought, but you should make it work on the newest OS and one of the newest phones first before you spend piles of cash. Then, present it to the community as freeware so that people will try it out for you. Most people will be willing to help out in hopes that they will benefit from your software. Just include a caveat that you have not tested it on any BBerry other than the (your model here) and that feedback is greatly appreciated. When they download it, direct them to your FTP site and kindly request their email so you can contact them in a few days. People don't mind being contacted by the developer directly (I actually like to talk to writers), they do mind being contacted by a botnet or by someone selling xxxxxx...

Don't burn up too much time writing for old OS's, who do you know that is writing software for Windows 98 or even Windows 2000???
