Motorola Admiral - Software Update Improves PTT, requires roaming settings change


Recommended Posts

Finally the update I have been waiting for ever since they rolled it out for the other SDC phone. Sprint has rolled out




These are the fixes / improvements



- Improvements to Sprint Direct Connect, including UFMI blocking for privacy

- Enhancement increases coverage area, Sprint Direct Connect now functions over 1x/roaming.

- Improvements to Sprint Direct Connect, added functionality such as TeamDC and OptIn DC in call logs

- Enhancement enables emergency broadcast support for improved safety and security.

- Improvement to user experience when both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are in use.

- Improvements to home screen so it is easier for a user to swipe the screen to unlock phone and answer calls.

- Functionality for setting up or editing calendar events in which you invite others using Corporate Exchange is being removed. If this functionality is needed, please use the Moxier email client preloaded on the device.

- Short Dialing to support Urban and Fleet IDs that match.


Also it will let you use SDC when roaming but you need to enable data roaming in order to make that work.

Something interesting is the support now for emergency alerts, which you can configure to let you know where there are weather alert, or any nearby emergency situations. Very useful for people who are constantly are moving around.

This is interesting. Wonder the weather alerts work (localized according to...?).

If it works like it does with Duramax then it should be based on what tower you are on. So when I was in Virginia Beach a few months ago we got a tornado warning alert for that area. It came in as an urgent SMS, apparently on the admiral it comes through within that app and probably with a notification. You have options on that app to change how it is displayed.

Interesting....the app must be constantly comparing your coordinates (or those reported by your cell) with the coordinates of the warning polygons released by NOAA.


Really surprised something like this hasn't picked up in popularity. I've looked into doing similar myself with an auto-programmed weather radio, but haven't had much luck finding digital wx tuners.


I think coarse location-based alerts would be a great idea, and could easily be a lifesaver here in the midwest.

    • While I've been loath to update my Samsung devices past the May 2022 update to keep the Band Selection tool, I note that it looks like Android 14 is going to add Timing Advance for NR to the API.  (Was looking today as I have another Verizon A42 5G now that I'm going to unlock for T-Mobile, and wanted to figure out if I should let it update or not.)  Since I can technically make band changes from *#73#, on the A42 5Gs, I can probably live without the Band Selection tool if a later Android version adds something useful like TA values. I assume SCP will be updated to support that once it becomes publicly available.  The real question is whether or not the phones will support it.  My S21FE and A42 5G devices do on LTE, but I know the S22 and the A32 5G do not support it even on LTE, providing just zero in that field. - Trip
    • The A23 5G appears to support all of the Dish NR bands except n26 which they don't even own yet, and n29 which as SDL can't be logged as far as I can tell.  https://www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?p=6760  I mean, n71, n66, and n70 are there, and those are the ones I'm most concerned about. I know that's not trade press, but I've found Phone Scoop to tend to be missing bands rather than including bands that should be there. I don't really care if it's carrier locked; if I'm buying a device specifically for Dish, then I'm probably not switching it out in the immediate future. - Trip
    • I mapped out the various phone choices to Dish's NR bands.  Used trade press for many of the phones, which can be unreliable.  Just starting with N71, you are down to three phones: Moto G Stylus 5G 2022, Moto Edge+ (2022), Celero 5G+.  Add in the less frequent n66 and you are down to: Moto G Stylus 5G 2022, Moto Edge+ (2022).  The Moto G Stylus 5G 2022 then walks away with the rest of the bands.   A negative is even if you pay cash, the phone is carrier locked for a year.

    • After nearly a month T-Mobile seems to be finally expanding n25 beyond the initial 5 sites they were using. However, it seems to be quite the mess. The three sites near me are all using different size channels. I'm getting a 5Mhz channel that's only using the G Block, a 15Mhz channel that's using the C Block, and a 20Mhz channel that's using C+G, each from a different site all next to each other. Very confusing.
