Question about Vtech IP5821 Cordless Phone

Open Question

Using Phone Book

Have any one tried using the phone book option in this phone. It saves the caller number with out the '1' and if we use to dial the outside caller it will not go through because its missing the first digit '1' for non local calls. This phone gives the option to edit the name by inserting letters with arrow keys but for numbers it clears the digits from right to left so if you cannot memorize the string of 12 numbers you are out of luck in saving the number from a caller ID display.I read the manual several times looking for work around. Have any one found a way to use this useless feature.

    I found the fix. Vtech customer care had the fix. By using the # key at the received call number will give you preceeding dial numbers like area code and the '1' it works good. Modify the number before saving it to phone book.

SOURCE: phone numbers not showing on caller id LED screen.

disassemble the handset (if you can figure out how to get it open). Flip the LCD screen over so that you can get to the end of the wire ribbon. You want the end that is connected to the phone, not the LCD screen. Carefully use a heat gun or hair dryer to heat the cable being careful not to melt it. Your goal is to melt the glue that connects the tiny wires to the electrodes. When glue is melted use a pencil eraser to press the wires so that they make contact again. Let it cool and try it out. It should work well after that. Put your phone back together.

Not sure if this is the same phone, but when I enter a number/letter, the "Mute" button serves as a backspace/delete function. So what I did was go to Menu>Directory>Review, scroll to the contact I wanted to delete, and press "Mute", which asks me to confirm to delete the contact. Hope this helps.

NEED HELP IN SET UP SPEED DIAL NUMBER


To enter or edit a speed dial number on the Uniden D1788, go to PHONE BOOK (the book icon), when SELECT appears use the up/down arrows to select the previously entered phone book name, press MENU/SELECT (EDIT appears), press MENU/SELECT (EDIT NAME appears), press MENU/SELECT (EDIT NUMBER appears), press MENU/SELECT (SPEED DIAL - XXXXX) appears. Now, to assign a speed dail number, use the up/down arrows to select the desired speed dial number (Expl: SPD2) and then press MENU/SELECT to save it. The selections are SPD0 to SPD9 and also NO SELECTION to remove an existing speed dial number. You can also assign a speed dial number that's already used to a different phone book name. It will remove it from the old name and reassign it to the new name. Use the above procedure to assign a speed dial number to a new phone book entry when SPEED DIAL appears.

Using speed dial with an LG Neon


if you already have contacts in your phone book and you have follow the set up info given...its just like retrieving your voice mail you normally would press the number "1" key...lets give it a test run press the number 5 key down for a second or two and release...it should be dialing whoever is in the the #5 spot...you just place your first speed dial....try it again lets call that number 9 ...note you can always change the positions (callers) in your speed dial..just simply go to the phone book to who you want to replace (eg.you want replace Debbie #4, go to Sam... options/speed dial/ #4 this will over ride who is in that position)

How to put phone numbers on the blackberry 8120


you have 2 options. you can load them directly in your "address book" by going into your address book, menu button (bb icon left of trackball), select "New Address" and enter the info.
Option 2 , would be going into your address book, select "SIM phone book" and enter the info there.
Keep in mind, when you use the SIM phone book option, you can only enter their name and phone number, and after you are done, you have to import your SIM contacts to your address book.
Any contacts saved using the SIM option, will stay on your SIM card.
Any contacts using the Address Book option, will only remain on the phone, and not on your sim card.
ho[pe this helps!

Ka08 sms message settings


Hello, I had the same problem, but i figured out how to get the callers id/information. On the main page select Call Center>>Call History>> SIM1(or whichever you are using)>> and select either the Missed/Dialed/Received calls. Lets choose Dialed Calls for now. Select a phone number that you recognize>>select OK>>Options>>Save to Phonebook. In here you will create a new contact. Make sure you delete this old contact information from your phone book. (so you don't have doubles if already saved to your contact list). Now you can go to your main menu again and select the phone book option. Select the contact you have created and add a photo and ring tone you like. Now when you get a call you get their photo and rign tone. For sms you get only their name, but thats good enough for me.
