    I love the courtesy tone option being added! The menu items were a bit confusing as well. Do we have an estimate on when the network ports will become usable?

    These are very good updates to firmware. I had been thinking of these items / issues when I bought my repeater. I’m really glad that BoafengTech is responsive to keeping this repeater model well updated.
