Call Manager 4.1.3 VS 4.2.3

Looking for recommendations and experiences with implementing 4.2.3. I have to decide between 4.1.3 and 4.2.3 with Call Manager and Unified Messaging. Also looking to eventually upgrade to 5.1. Any help is appreciated

Hi Pete,

In addition to the super information that Greg provided, just thought that I might add that there still isn't an upgrade path from 4.2 to 5.0 according to the following;

Also have a look at this Great thread from May of this year that includes some excellent answers from some really great NetPros all talking about this debate;

Hope this helps!
