I just installed Service Pack 5 for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, and rebooted.

I have wiped my handheld and also recreated my account on the BES 4.1.5.26 and still the new features don't showup on my phone.

The features appear to be enabled (as they are set to True), the ones I could locate anyway, on the server.

How do I get the new features to work as descibed on BlackBerry's website http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/server/new_v4-1_sp5.jsp

Thanks

Actaully no I didn't, I don't see where it talks about that.

Is there a link you can post to where/how to do this upgrade?

Thanks!

You typically need to download the software from your carrier's site (e.g. www.verizonwireless.com).

I downloaded and installed the updated software on the BlackBerry 8130 phone I have, and I still don't see any Free/Busy option when I try to add a new appointment in on the phone.

RTC -

    A lot of the new features require the BlackBerry OS version 4.5 and above.  This upgrade for the device has not been release yet for most manufactures.  Look soon for an update from your carrier for the phone.
