Service Pack 1 for BES 5.0 is still in Beta/RC status. It should be released within the next few weeks. Enhancement are that you can now use right-click in BlackBerry Administration Service. SQL 2008 is finally supported with BAS. There are many more improvements, but I don't have a complete list at the moment.

Service Packs are always free of charge. Only for minor, e.g. 4.0 to 4.1, and major updates, e.g. 4.x to 5.0, you require an active support agreement with RIM to get the update free of charge. If you have no active support agreement with RIM, you have to buy update licenses, for both minor and major version updates.
