Can you push OS upgrades from BES Express?

I have been looking online and cant find much documentation on this.  Some people say yes, some say no.


I have BES Express, and looking to push OS6 upgrades to our phones.  They are currently on OS5.


Thank you.

No you cant push them from BES.


What you can do is enforce carrier Over The Air OS upgrades, prevent or even block them.
