Unhappy Unable to locate correct BB Simulator? :(

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all,

I'm trying to locate the proper simulator. I check the blackberry, and it has OS version

I found the simulator on rims website (the phone description matched my phone as well). I downloaded it and installed it.

I then loaded the blackberry JDE. I looked under the simulators dropdown. I can't see it there.... The simulators it shows are :

- 8310-Rogers-
- 8300-
- 9000-TIM-
- 9500-JDE
- 9530-JDE
- Default Simulator

Some of those were other simulators I installed to try. None of them seem to be the one above that I downloaded and installed.

What am I missing?

(I tried using each simulator. None of the simulators loaded a phoen that looked like mine)

You downloaded a fairly new version of the JDE, which has fairly new simulators.

You need to download JDE 4.0.2. Your phone is probably an 87xx series. You code developed under 4.2, or 4.5, or 4.7 won't run on this phone anyway - you need to compile on a version <= the phone OS level.
