Sure - they all simulate different device models and/or networks and/or OS levels.

No. Each simulator is a facsimile of a particular device.

I have one more query,
I see different simulators for different carriers...what is the difference in them?
will it be sufficient if i test my application in a simulator for a particular blackberry device
irrespective of the carrier? will this hold good for other carriers as well?
Can any one throw some light on this?

There are differences. Each carrier has their own build of the OS. They also use different themes.

Different carriers also have different network types - CDMA vs, GPRS, etc. Some carriers restrict GPS operation, some don't.

If possible, you should try to use the simulator for the carrier/device you are targeting.

In general, here are the importance of the various factors.

1. OS Level (most important)
2. Device - for example, touch vs. trackball, GPS-capable, screen size
3. Carrier
