Quote for upgrade/install needed

Hi, we have an existing forum using vBulletin® Version 4.2.0.
The license information has been lost over time, so it is currently unlicensed and we cannot find that info.
We do of course have admin rights/passwords/database access.

It looks like vBulletin 5.4 is $249.
And I see an install option for $169.

Will that $169 cover the full migration from 4.2.0 to 5.x and move all the old threads and users and formatting over to the new 5.x? Moving all the old data over?
If not, how much would this cost me?

The only plugin we have is Tapatalk. So nothing fancy going on here.

We don't have any admins who are ninja's with vBulletin so some hand-holding is needed here.

Also, how much would it cost to have someone create the vBulletin mobile app for us if we choose to pay extra for that option?

You'll have to purchase the software first, and then you can purchase the installation/upgrade add-on which if an upgrade, all your data should be migrated to the new version.

They also sell a mobile suite add-on, which is $199. I assume it comes with clear instructions on how to set that up but I would inquire first on if it works properly because I believe Apple made some changes lately regarding publishing an app that was made by a third party or something like that.

Thanks, Dave.
So that would mean the forum should look/work just like it does now (for the most part) and all the old threads will still be there?
Users won't lose anything?

Yikes, great point.

The themes and plugins are not compatible between vBulletin 4 and 5 and will not be kept, it's just the threads/posts/users, etc. that is migrated over.

So, what's the compelling reason for the proposed "upgrade" to vB5?
