Thanks for your help.
Bes can handle different carriers. Research in Motion is the maker of the BES, and the wireless providers are nothing more than service providers. Software version of the handset should not matter as far as i know, although the older handsets may not be able to enjoy all the wireless features of the BES (some handsets are upgradeable, some are not, but either way any BB should be able to added onto your BES server)
