Line on hold message

Hello, I recently left verizon and switched to Comcast for my service (VOIP) but in mid calls my uniden DCT648-3 phones will lose the call and give me the error message of "line on hold" or "please wait". What is causing this is it my phone or my provider. My corded phone has no issues

    Same problem. Uniden phone will interrupt call with "line on hold". Pressing end or talk doesn't seem to make a difference. Line will come back on, and the call was on-going (e.g. office message is still playing on the other end.)

    Cannot get the "line on hold" message off my uniden cordless phone. It has my entire phone line tied up.

SOURCE: uniden 5.8Ghz phone.

You need to reset the main base unit. Unplug the power from the back of the base. While the power is disconnected, press and hold the delete key while reconnecting the power. Wait for a long beep tone. When the display shows 88 or P, press play button one time. If you have a phone without an answering machine, disconnect the power from the back of the base, press and hold find hs button while reconnecting power.

SOURCE: Uniden CXA15198 not showing caller id

Had a similar issue with a brand new DECT2035 uniden phone, displaying incoming call not caller ID.

Checked my old uniden phone, and it was receiving CID. So I connected my DECT2035 to that line and then lo and behold I got my CID.
After further investigation I found that CID on my dect phone wont work if its using a shared filter (ie. adsl/phone splitter). Had to find an unfiltered splitter and then just put a phone filter (that I got with my adsl modem) onto the line that is directly connecting the phone. and then WOOHOO I have caller ID.

Hope this helps you... I got my wife a little cranky over this one cos it took me over an hour and a half to try and sus this one out =)

SOURCE: my uniden dct648-3 keeps saying "warning please wait" and it fully charged - so it says. i can hear the phone ring but as soon as i pick it up and hit talk, that darn message appears and i hear nothin

I had this exact same problem. I had to reset all three handsets. Select menu, system reset, replacing base, then follow directions. This worked for one unit but the other ones I had to buy new batteries eventhough they showed fully charged. Good Luck

You have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

Does not wait for the 4th ring; sends call to verizon voice mail box after the second ring


Sounds like your service provider(Verizon) has your phone line setup to forward to voicemail on no answer after 2 rings. Call your service provider's customer service number and request that the number of rings for forward no answer be increased to at least 5, then your answer machine can receive and answer your calls after 4 rings but if your line is busy callers can leave a message with your Verizon voicemail service. If you don't want Verizon voicemail to answer any of your calls, you could have them disable the voicemail service. When you call the service provider have a recent bill ready because they may request your account number before they will make any changes.

I have Comcast triple play. After the recent lose of service all my cordless phones say Check tel line. The do not have a dail tone. How do I get them working again?


Have you rebooted your modem? If not, do so now. If that doesnt work you will have to call Comcast via cell telephone. Do you still have WWW via Comcast? If yes, you can contact them that way but you will not get much actual help. You must call them ... and suffer listen to the recordings about how easy it is to solve your troubles at www ... don't pay attention ... wait on the telephone for help.

Thanks for your question ...

CID not working


There are two main types of Caller ID used in the US, most Uniden phones will work with either type, you just need to set it to type "A" or type "B". If you will post your model I will be happy to tell you how to change it or you can call Uniden Customer Service at 800-297-1023

I recently switched to the comcast phone service from ATT. I have a structured wire set up. I also kept an ATT land line so I'd have a telco line in an emergency--like an earthquake. On every phone in the...


Assuming you have 2 line phones, what happens if you swap lines? If your structured wiring is the 568B standard, which is the most typical, the second line must be punched down to the white/green pair instead of the orange/white pair for 568A wiring. It sounds like the second line may be daisy chained in the panel so you have to see how it's wired and troubleshoot from there. Sometimes a pair is connected to a power supply to provide power for a phone or light but that's not typical any more. Sorry I can't be more specific but if you have more info or photos of the panel and jacks I'd be happy to help further.

When someone calls me the ringer on the phone does not ring.I do not know how to turn the ringer back on. Also when someone tries to leave me a message the answering machine does not record the message....


On the phone not ringing, just push the volume up button while the phone is not in use, that should adjust the ringer volume. As for the message saying that calls are being routed to an automatic message sertvice, that sounds like a voice mail offering from your service provider, not the phone. Uniden phones have a default greeting that says "Hello, no one is availible to take your call, please leave a message after the tone" Contact your service provider and find out if you have voice mail service on your line. If you do and want to use the answering machine on your phone, you will need the service provider to allow for more rings before the voice mail service takes the call.

DCT 646


If you have a phone that works off a broadband modem, that is a VoIP phone. That will not work with a home phone line. I'm assuming Verizon is your local Telephone carrier that provides your local dial tone.
The broadband modem would have the phone number of whatever VoIP phone service you have.

Cannot get a ring tone when receiving phone calls


I've found this to be a problem with regular phone lines (POTS) and Uniden phones. Uniden phones do not seem to support 90v @ 20hz ringing voltage / frequency. They work fine in every aspect except for ringing. These phones do work well with voip, where you aren't connected to the telephone company and have calls routed over the internet. The boxes that handle the voip calls generally produce less than 90v and work well w/ Uniden phones.

GE CORDLESS PHONE 28118 SERIES DOES NOT DISPLAY NUMBER OF MESSAGES. I have voip service from comcast. When I have a message, the indicator 'in use' is blinking.


i suspect the phone is not compatible with voip services for the functionality you are looking for. Check with comcast to see if there's some specific config needed for your phone.

good luck
