Thatís a good price that I would be willing to pay if I didnít already have an upgraded radio. Thank god I got mine the day I paid for my radio and do not have to be without radio for a few days while upgrade is place in radio.

One question, will the future firmware updates, after sending this in, be downloadable and install-able without mailing the unit back in again? I'd assume so, but want to know for sure before upgrading the unit. Thanks.

Yes,I asked Unication that question a bit ago and they told me this upgrade embeds Phase II in the units so that future upgrades do not affect the Phase II.

I bought mine from Rays Pagers, wondering if this would be offered by them as well? I would rather continue to do business through them.

This is a manufacturer upgrade, not a retail upgrade. Ray's is just a distributor.

IT will enable phase two but also allows the most recent firmware upgrades. So T02 and T08 (which is what was shipped to us from Rays).

For what it's worth. . my newly acquired G4 with Phase-2 already loaded runs circles around my older G5 (acquired mid-2016- not yet P2 capable) even on Phase-1 systems, in terms of performance. Now, there could be other variables at play. . and in all fairness my G5 is on an ancient firmware (R11P from mid 2017).

But here are the noteworthy subjective improvements I see w/ the my P2-enabled G4 based on my limited observations so far:
-Issue of frequent 'out of range' is resolved in my basement, on a distant P1 system. (using same antennas, same conditions)
-Missed transmissions issue seems to be fixed! This was noticeable especially on short-replies. Not an issue now based on my non-scientific observations these past 18 hours.
-Improved speech quality. . less 'digitized' sounding.

I have sent my G5 in for the upgrade. . will be especially anxious to see if after the update it compares to my new G4. I suspect it will, and I suspect the new firmware fixes a few nuisance issues.

Yep leave the battery in, remove the antenna. I thought about putting the original box inside the outer box but worried I wouldn’t get it back so just used another generic small box inside, instead.

I'm leaving battery in. Have the original box inside a slightly larger box, fits in nicely so no bouncing around. Also made sure to put 3 layers of clear packing tape on my display so no "accidents" happen like scratches. Sending it out Wednesday.

Thanks for the replies , I think I will keep the original box here too then. I have plenty of packing and boxes. Iím just going to do a box inside of a box packing with plenty of bubble wrap. I was curious as to how everyone was doing it , thanks Mike

Be careful when pulling the tape off. I had a screen protector on my display that I cut out of a smartphone screen protector. When I pulled it off, the clear display glass pulled off the front of the pager. Unication covered it under warranty repair! When I got the pager back it looked brand new. Even shipped it back with a new antenna because I left the antenna out of the box! Great service!

So when you pull the tape off, peel it off carefully.
