End Of Life for 4.1.6 and 4.1.7

On July 2 2011, there will be no more support in the form of Service packs, Maintenance Release or Security vulnrabilities. You will however be able to call in and get support to fix it if need be.

 

This might be a good time to think about an upgrade to BES 5 or BES 5 Express.

 

You can compare features here.

To migrate to BES 5

 

Since BES 5.0 is so different, I would set it up all on its own and once tested and running, use transporter to move users over which will not require any activation. You can also get a migration kit from T support for this so you can have both new and old running at same time. Other otion is use BES express as middle man to move to and then once all moved, move to Full BES. (migration kit is alot easier)

 

Here is most of the documentation you need will to install and administer the BB 5.0 server:

Re: End Of Life for 4.1.6 and 4.1.7

Just an update for those that wish to get ready for BB10 as it wont work with BES 4.x or prior

 

 

There is no change in server or Client Access License (CAL) pricing. If you currently run BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4, you can upgrade to the latest version of BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5 for $999 USD (plus any applicable fees/taxes), or for free for those with Advantage or higher BlackBerry® Technical Support Services subscriptions.

Need help upgrading to the latest Service Pack? Don’t forget that you can always contact BlackBerry Technical Support Services to assist you. BlackBerry Technical Support Services offers both incident-based pricing or annual subscriptions which provide 7x24x365 end-to-end technical support for BlackBerry Enterprise Server, BlackBerry Mobile Fusion, and BlackBerry smartphones and BlackBerry® PlayBookTM tablets.
