| | BES Upgrade question
Please Login to Remove!
We are currently running BES 4.0 Lite (or is it called SBE?) and wexxx8217;d like to upgrade to BES 4.1.6. However RIM have informed us that BES 4.0 Lite is discontinued and that they no longer offer the one-time upgrades to BES 4.1.6. The options they have given us therefore are as follows:
1. Upgrade to BPS 4.1 (which I understand is a cut down version of BES and has stripped out functionality such as support for HTML emails etc)
2. Upgrade to BES 5.0 (which we are not keen on just yet due to the number of issues Ixxx8217;ve read about it)
I then spoke to our carrier who stated that they can sell us the full BES 4.1.2 Enterprise software at a discounted price, which we can use to in-place upgrade our existing BES Lite, whilst retaining our existing CALs and SRP. We can then service pack upto 4.1.6 free of charge. This sounds like a better solution as we get to retain the full Bes functionality (rather than moving to a cut-down BPS) and its much cheaper than going to BES 5.0. However I just wanted to get confirmation that this would actually work?
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
