I am trying to set up a complex coded mobile site. I want to test it out different cellphone platforms.
I want to try Ipads, androids, and the blackberrys
I would to get the whole simulated feel and I am trying to figure out if I can just download simulators, or should I set up real operating systems on my virtual box?
any ideas on the best way to go about this?

You can also use VirtualBox (VB) to build a VM for OSX and then load the iPhone/iPad development environment in it, it has built in emulators.

I have cookie code and insert into databases. When I try it on an emulator, it tells me "these actions can not be performed on an emulator".
How can I give it a real test?
I don't see any reason that you would get that message if all you're talking about is a website. Your DB insert would be done on the server, not on the device, so I don't know how why it would matter that it's an emulator. Are you getting that error on the iPhone or Android emultor?

Which emulators do I need to cover most of the cellphone basis?
Opera, Safari, what else?
