The only scanner currently capable of p25 phase 2 is the PSR-800, if you can find/afford one. None of the other GREs can do it.

As to the Unidens: they have been tight lipped on phase 2 plans.

Phase 2 is TDMA, which requires a different type of receiver design so firmware alone isn't always all there is to it.
