    Looking at the different version I noticed:

    Vodafone Australia & Fiji + Telenor have:
    Package Version: 4.2.1.151
    Applications: 4.2.1.94
    Software Platform: 3.3.0.22

    Vodafone UK:
    Package Version: 4.2.1.148
    Applications: 4.2.1.94
    Software Platform: 3.3.0.21


    Does that mean that the Vodafone UK version is a little bit older?
    Which version can I install best? (Vodafone NL user but default language is English)

    Yes, but software platform is different.
    What does that mean?

    Same applications, different platform. I tried them both, it seems the .151 version is a bit faster (less slow...)

    Hmm I can't get the .151 to install on my BB 8707v.
    The UK version .148 installs without problems and runs ok on my device.
    I have a Vodafone Netherlands 8707v...

    I downloaded for 8707 4.2.1.94 and don't have the push to talk as feature as mentioned. Also, noted that the unlock feature by using the track wheel is not available. Any help appreciated.

    Hi.

    I noticed also that the unlock with wheel is unfuctioning.
    Don't know if this is theme dependant,
    try other themes in your phone to see if that resolves it.

    The push to talk I don't have either and have never had on my phone so I don't know if that one is dependant on which provider you got.

    Feels like there are some functions that exists on the 8800 that has been removed on the 8707 release, like media player function for example.
