We’re awesome.

We’re always here to help.

Can I programming this myself?

We created a programming decision tree as well as programming videos (above) to help you decided on whether you should include professional programming with your scanner, but we HIGHLY recommend adding programming.

Can't I just punch in my zip code for programming?

No, this is available on any Unication pager.

How long does programming take?

It takes our technician over an hour to program each Unication & this is ALL he does. For new & moderate users we estimate 3-12 hours of programming. Setup time varies wildly based on area as well as model & general tech familiarity.

Why should I buy programming?

Programming is the #1 reason for returns. While programming is much easier than the days of crystal scanners, there is a learning curve like any other electronics purchase. Some enthusiasts are highly technical and want to learn the ins and outs of programming, but others simply want their Unication to just ‘work’ right out of the box.

95% of all sales include programming, so unless you’re familiar with Unication pagers, Unication terminology, own a PC (Mac’s do not work), and want to learn the nuances of programming, we highly recommend having your Unication pager professionally programmed. Unication technology is not like a smartphone or iPad in terms of ease of us. If you're spending hundreds of dollars, we recommend springing a few extra bucks so it works right out of the box.

Can't you teach me programming with your lifetime technical support?

No. Lifetime technical support is not unlimited technical support. We are always here to help and love to do so. We made how-to videos and can help point you in the right direction, but we will not teach programming.

Custom programming?

We have a process that will ensure you're happy with your Unication when it arrives programmed. However, the only way to do programming is by following our process. We cannot take custom files from customers and program.
