On blackberry the choicefield and editfield do not look like what you would expect on other devices or windows. So don't worry about it. People are accustomed to this kind of interface.

There is a concept of least surprise in UI design. If you really make a combobox kind of ui for a choicefield, it may not look/work like a lot of people are accustomed to on blackberry devices. So go ahead with what is available. See how other applications like mail composer etc are designed.
