Nextel Blackberry 8350i upgrade to v5.0 device software

I was disappointed to see that the Nextel 8350i doesn't support the new version of Blackberry device software v5.0.  Does anyone know when this will be available to us?  I want to upgrade ASAP.

Any posts would be appreciated.

Excellent question. SouthernLINC released 5.0 about 3 weeks ago for their 8350i's. Some users have loaded it on Nextel 8350i's. When will the official Sprint/Nextel release come out?

My phone is activated on a Blackberry Enterprise server, and when I downloaded the v5.0 software it says that I can't install it.  I happen to be the IT guy who manages the BES and I have no policies in place to prohibit the installation.  How did people apply the software to an 8350i?  I don't mind doing it if I can figure out how.  If the phone was a stand alone device instead of being activitated on the BES would it accept the upgrade?

Nextel is so fail......
