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.
As an update, I received my updated G5 from Unication yesterday, and it behaves like a whole new radio with this new firmware and vocoder. . the positive observations I noted above about my newly purchased G4 with P2 are now observable with my updated G5 also. P2 capability aside, I also see benefits on P1 with the new firmware.

Thatís good news. Still waiting for UPS. In the interim, I installed the newest PPS but donít see any changes to previous versions. I thought by now they would have addressed the 32 zone limit.

Seems pretty clear at this point that probably won't change.

Iím waiting on UPS as well. Their initial tracking showed a delivery date of 4/24. Later, when I checked again, the date had been rescheduled to 4/26. It would have been faster if they shipped using USPS. On the plus side, I have my new NJICS codeplug almost ready.

Just curious for those that have their G4/5s back. Is Unication sending them back 2 day USPS ? I have noticed the quick returns. Mine got to Arlington UPS yesterday. Hoping it delivers to Unication Monday. Mike

Hard to tell for me with the weekend - dropped at a UPS store late afternoon on 4/19 - not scheduled for delivery until Tuesday 4/24 (by 8pm)... doesn't seem like 2 day... weekend never helps but it's clear my package - which arrived in Atlanta around 6pm on Friday - is spending the better part of the weekend standing still.

Exactly what I did 4/19 scheduled for delivery Tuesday 4/24. Mine went from central Iowa to Dallas in 36 hours not too bad. I am hoping they put it on the delivery truck tonight for Arlington, that would be a day early , not holding my breath. If yours is still Atlanta, it's about 800 miles to Dallas------it will be there Tuesday for sure.

Thanks Jeb2942, I wasnít sure how people were getting them back. Makes sense though. I worry more about my local post office than I do the rest of the trip!

At the Unication site. Unication USA
Phase II upgrade takes you through the online store. The address is sent to you through email after purchase as well as a link for the NEW PPS you use with Phase II upgrade. NOTE - Unication chose to make you also send paper COPIES of your purchase with Serial number, etc along with your pager you send in to them. You'll have to print out that email and form on a copier to include. I used a VISA pre-paid debit card to buy my upgrade. REALLY FAST turnaround time.

I did the Phase II upgrade on my G4 last week. Purchased the upgrade on Sunday, sent out on Monday from the Cleveland, OH area via USPS and received by Unication on Wednesday and turned around the same day via UPS. UPS delivered my pager on Saturday.

Overall a very smooth process. I opted for the insurance from USPS and it ran around $14ish.

I sent my G4 in today for the upgrade via UPS Ground, its suppose to be there on Thursday. Maybe I'll get it back by the end of next week if I am lucky.

So how do I install the new PPS. Do I have to delete the old one. Right now when I click on it I get the display "You cannot preview .exe files".

You can use the Download button in the upper right hand corner of the Dropbox screen - are, I believe you can right-click to save the file.

Once you have it downloaded, you can just install it - I do not believe there is a need to uninstall first.

Here is what I see on the screen (using Chrome) when I go to the goo.gl link that was provided - note the download button in the upper right hand corner.
