Re: my phone is in the announce mode. callers cannot...
What is the specific model of your phone. Typically there is a setting in your machine to set the "Recording Time". Uniden typically you can set to 1 minute, 4 minutes, or "Anounce only". This last one is probably what your is set to.
Typically pressing the "Menu" key will go to each setting for each time you press the button. Press menu until it announces "Recording Time" Then select 1 minute or 4 minute using the "Select" Button.

Is there a cable plugged into the "PC/IF" jack on the side of the radio? If not, then something was jammed into there so the radio is looking for a computer SoftWare upgrade. With the radio off, try plugging a small headphone in and out of the PC/IF jack a couple of times, then leave it unplugged and turn it on to see if this screen goes away. Else, do a complete scanner reset.
Sorry, but the answers to your questions are no and no. Modern scanners are what they are, and they cannot be modified to monitor any secure (encrypted), digital, or cell phone communications. There is no magic fix to convert an analog scanner to digital. If you want to listen in to digital communications you'll need to purchase a digital-capable scanner, but that will still leave you without cell phone coverage or the ability to listen in to whatever secure transmissions you're referring to.
Hi Mark: To deactivate the priority scan mode on the BC60XLT-1, just press the PRI (Priority) key while the scanner is running in either SCAN or MANUAL mode. If your scanner is something other than the BC60XLT-1, please provide your model number and I'll research the answer for you.
Just fixed my squelch problem; I don't know how it happened but Resistor 138 was burned & intermittant. It was so badly burned that I could not read the color code but it measured 880 ohms intermittantly. I replaced it with an 860 ohm carbon resistor & all seems well; time will tell. R-138 is located on the circuit board right behind the squelch potentiometer. R-139 is immediately behind the pot & R-138 is next to R-139. All I had to do is remove the 4 screws on the back of the case & the unit splits in half. I clipped the old resistor out leaving a bit of the old leads so I could solder in the new resistor without having to get to the backside of the circuit board. Scanner is working as I type this & I hope it does not burn out again. Hopefully this is the same problem in your scanner & an easy fix. Good luck.
1) the words Lo, Hi, Air, and UHF are indicating that you told your scanner to hold on a specific frequency modulation, this is normal, pay it no mind.
2) these numbers represent sub-frequencies that are encoded into the scanner's frequency ID decoder. These numbers can also sometimes identify the frequency's pre-programmed bank number.
These problems are all basic functions of your scanner, I hope this answered your questions.
