I have been led to believe that you cannot do this, but I would not consider myself sufficiently knowledgeable to say.  I'm also interested.

Re: SP6 love for BPS?

I downloaded SP6 last night and tried to applit to my BPS with no luck.  It asked me for a trade up key.

 

I think thats extremely lame if RIM is going to leave our BPS users and only give good updates to BES users.  My company has no need for a RIM package that allows thousands of users or enterprise IM either (both of which are available wth the BES and not BPS).

 

I would love for a RIM employee to chime in on this thread and give us some input.

 

RIM, you're up.

Re: SP6 love for BPS?

I have been googling around, and all the while my BES contacts have been enjoying HTML email, I have been plugging along without it.

  

Still waiting on RIM to respond to this.  Either a date for us BPS users regarding a patch or at least a reason why were left out.

Re: SP6 love for BPS?

It's starting to seem more and more, with no response from RIM, that us BPS users are getting the cold shoulder.  Why would it seem fair that to get the advanced features of a full BES, i would be required to have a BES for 7 users?  That doesnt seem right and it only alienates the small business community.  Many small offices can't/won't fund a full BES price tag.  RIM comes along and offers BPS as an alternative, but leaves it without updates.  It's as if we were told that the Wal-Mart brand RIM software will work fine, but get left behind becasue in a seriousness - who wants to update Wal-Mart level software?

 

Thanks RIM.

 

Love,

 

A disappointed user.

Re: SP6 love for BPS?

... I think its clear here that RIMs focus is not on the small business market here.  4.1.4 is there for BPS, but no SP5 or SP6 anywhere in sight.

 

I would contact your sales rep / account manager and hound them continually ... maybe that would help.

It's a strange thing though, they updated Unite! to support HTML, glad to see they're supporting the enterprise and consumers, while completely ignoring the SMB market.

Re: SP6 love for BPS?

Are you serious?  They upgraded Unite! with HTML?

 

Come on RIM.  There is no excuse for ignoring the SMB market.  You have got to be joking.  Ya know, it used to be so easy to recommend RIM products to other SMB's in my area, but thats becoming less and less true.
