How to push out handheld software OTA
Is there a way to push out the latest handheld software OTA? All users currently have 4.2 on their 8820's and I want to update them to 4.5 so I could update the BES to sp5.

Nope. :-(

Wireless push of OS updates requires 4.3.1 or 4.5 already on the handheld. The feature is going to do much for most devices already out there. But should be a nice feature as time goes on.

Now that we are running 4.5.x.x on all of our handhelds and we are running 4.1.6 on our BES, is there a way to publish the next 4.5.x.y to our handhelds via OTA? I keep coming up empty handed when I search for this, thanks for any help you can provide.

I was under the impression that only Application software can be oushed OTA, not device OS software, as thats only wired. I might be wrong, can someone confirm this please.

only storm can have OS upgraded OTA from BES at this time.

Thanks for the update, I was confused simply because now that I have upgraded our phones to 4.5, they all show the "Wireless Upgrade" option in "Options / Advanced Options." I'll just keep on waiting/watching for more information regarding this topic.

Thanks again.
