The "S" Variant is still in early Development. I don't foresee it being ready for production any time soon.

Second this. But for now, I love it for what it is because it works.

Without knowing anything about programming, how technically difficult is it to add a scan delay and a hold / resume feature? Is that considered a hard thing to write in software code?

Lets not forget that each button on the device now has an assigned function.
So if we added a hold button, which hardware button would we use?
Then if we did have a hold button, how would we now add the nuisance delete button? I guess long hold for one and short press for the other.
My thought for user delay is a drop down menu of 1 through 6 seconds. Add it to D-4 Group ID setting menu. This way when the ID is landed on it would use the time delay to hang based on your selection.
Hey Unication, if you end up doing it that way can i get a free G5. LOL

I don't think that is even the issue. Unication's pagers are made for and marketed to professional users, i.e. emergency responders. If a feature the hobbyist want (like a hold feature) could inadvertently interfere with receiving an emergency page, Unication will not do it. That's just my conjecture, of course. All things considered there are features I would like to see added, all of which have been previously mentioned here, but I am still mindful of who the pagers are made for. And it is not the hobbyist.

I typed up a post something similar to this but then deleted it rather than posting....

Assuming they even consider/opted to add features like this, they'd also have to build a "defeat" or lockout of that same feature in the PPS to ensure the true intended users don't do something that would cause them to miss an alert/notification. I could be wrong but I suspect some "protections" already had to be added to keep those same users from making unauthorized changes to their equipment (i.e. password on programming, etc.)

Since we know David is legit, it brings the question of "who is Uni1?" into even more suspicion. The statements contradict each other and I get the sense of a little trolling.

Agreed!

Is there any indication that they are actually working on, or considering adding these features?

Just to clarify my earlier post, out of excitement about DMR I wrote Tier 1 when I meant to write Tier 2 which is also included in the post made by UNI1.

As for models, the TW site lists three versions of the G5. The first is the G5-B with Bluetooth v 2, the second us G5-P which has Bluetooth v 4 both of which have DMR Tiers 1 & 2. The third is the G5-S which has BT 4 plus DMR Tier 3. It would appear the US variant UNI1 mentioned is the G5-B or the G5-P (hopefully). Unication David was referring to the G5-S with Tier 3.

I do not know whether the G5-B (BT-2) or the G5-P (BT-4) is currently shipping in the US although some recent buyers have posted their unit included BT-4. (Unconfirmed)

Unless I see a screen shot showing an LMP higher than 0x6, I'm not buying it.

As far as I know, a Bluetooth radio change would require a modification or a whole new certification. The most recent filing was in 2016 for the R01 VHF Repeater (using the grantee code of LEA).

So is it an "August release date" or not "ready for production anytime soon?"

If both are legit, someone is blowing smoke.

Red font markup is mine, to make it easier for you to figure out this time.

OK, that makes sense.

I did miss the nuance, and thank you for the clarification

1) DMR is not band specific.
2) G4 is available with UHF.

Just to correct this before it causes confusion.

The Unication G4 Pager is only 700-800 mhz. ( NOT available in any other bands )

The Unication G5 Pager is available in VHF/700-800 MHz, and various UHF/700-800 MHz.
