Question about AT&T 2256 Cordless Phone
New phone. trying to set up and do the phone book. thought I would have to do the phone book after the initial battery charge, but still can't get phone book on the "sel" menu. handset still says searching even 'tho battery should be charged. red charge light has been on all night, maybe 11 hours by now. no dial tone even 'tho another phone plugged into the same line is fine.
Found the following in AT&Ts FAQs for your phone, I'll leave only what might be relevant: # Charge the handset for 12 hours. After the first charge, the battery will quick charge in only 8 hours. Re-cradle the handset nightly for recharging. The battery will not overcharge. # Connect telephone line from base to unit to modular telephone jack. If cord is already plugged in, unplug and reconnect at both ends. Also, you may want to try another cord from a working telephone. See the owner's manual under "Connecting to Phone Line." (you can get the manual here on the product page in case you lost it) # Try a working phone at the jack. If another phone has the same problem in that jack, the phone jack is defective. Good luck, hope you work it out
