Default few BES 5.0 and exchange 2010 upgrade questions

Please Login to Remove!

Dear All,

we have exchange 2003 and BES 4.1.6 and want to upgrade to exchange 2010 and BES 5.04. we have the following

questions please which we tried to find answers to and got confused by different answers:

1. if we migrate to exchange 2010 and keep BES 4.1, will it work? we found on some sites that we must upgrade to BES 5.0

first as BES 4.1 will not work with exchange 2010!

2. if we will do both, shall BES upgrade be done first?

3. Our provider sent us an offer for BESx 5 and said it is the same as BES but for small organizations (we have 40 users).

we found on the net that BESx is free!!! Also, inplace upgrade is not possible from BES 4.1 to BESx 5. What will we

really lose if we go with BESx and is it realy free?

4. will the license cost of upgrading BES 4.1 TO BES 5.0 be as the same as purchasing a new BES 5 licenses?
