You may need to set the main handset to synchronize with the base unit plugged into the telephone wall jack and assign special configuration numbers to the other handsets in order to properly identify each one within a specified location. One handset left in the turned on mode may make it impossible to place calls with the any of the other handsets. This will continue until either the battery dies or fails on the handset or the phone is switched off and replaced in its charger for charging again. Synchronize the main handset by pressing the MENU button on the handset, then pressing the down button IN order to select the number you wish to assign to that handset. Repeating this process if you have already done so will greatly decrease the level of errors experienced with phones.

The processor chip that records the voice is a multi level SMD technology chip. The tech who changes it will need the proper soldering facilities for this type of work.

The only people who can service the phone are the authorized service people for ATT. They will not sell parts to non authorized service people, even if they have the proper facilities to change the chip.

For service on your phone, the service center will normaly change the complete circuit board. If the phone is out of warranty, the cost would not be worth it.
