    I bought this phone set after deciding that I wanted a less cheap phone ... with answering machine included ... it was, I thought, a good investment ... now, I'm supposed to pay extra for "Premium Assistance Plan?  I don't think so!  Doesn't anyone have any answers for me???

Make sure the battery is charged. If the battery is low either because it is old and doesn't hold a charge or needs to be charged, the audio will sound like your talking from the bottom of a swimming pool.

SOURCE: Necesito El manual en español

If I guess right, you are looking for a user manual for your VTech CS5121-3....... Cordless phone in Spanish. But unfortunately, this manual is available only in English, no other language. Even on the, it's not available.

If you need the English Version, you can download it from here (click here).

You'll need a pdf reader like adobe reader to open and read the file on your computer. Click here to download Adobe Reader.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Can not hear dial tone or hear caller / can hear on speaker call

Most likely that it is the speaker on the handheld part of the phone. Your sound comes from the base itself when you put your current connection on Speaker-Call. So if you cannot hear the dial tone OR the person on the other end unless on "speaker" it's just the handheld and I believe there are places online you can purchase JUST that part if needed.

AT&T Design Line Telephone 146 - static on line

Check the cord from the phone to the handset - wiggle both ends to see if you get more noise. Could be a bad connection or bad cord.

Our line one cuts out even when we're talking on it & we can just barely hear the person on the line but they can hear us clearly. We have unplugged the phone's power cord & plugged it back in...

I have the same sort of My Vtech sorta 'cuts out' when there is noise at my hosue. The person I'm talking to can still hear me but I can't hear them. If my son starts crying or there's any other loudish type noises on my end, it's like the phone is trying to cutout my background noise, but all it's cutting out is the person talking to me. It's not that the noises in my house are loud and I jsut can't hear the person I"m talking to, b/c if i cover the mouth peice then no matter how loud the sound in my house is i can still hear the person i'm talking to but I HAVE to keep the mouth peice covered. It's really annoying!

I can hear caller on handset but they cannot hear me?

We just had the same problem with our AT&T 2462 hand sets. They simultaneously stopped transmitting, and though we could hear the caller, no one could hear us on the other end of the line. We unplugged the base from the power source, took the batteries out of the hand sets, waited 20 seconds, then plugged everything back in and they worked just fine. Hope this helps.

Phone works fine except the person on the other end can not hear your voice. Phone is a Uniden DCT 646 series cordless phone with one addional handset. The additional set is working fine.

There is an inexpensive built in mic where you speak into the handset. Ifit is not clogged with any debris, the mic needs to be removed with a soldering iron and replaced with a like one from Radio Shack.

Hand set goes dead

Next time it goes dead, try wiggling the cord where it plugs in the handset and where it plugs into the phone. If the problem goes away, you will need a new cord.

Hope this helps, and if so, please rate my advice.
