Are thee any Binatone handsets compatable as extra handset to add to Binatone symphony 3325 unable to get new handsets but main answering machine and handset are still working

with cordless phones the problem is that the hand sets have to be recognized by the base station ( paired) and unless you have the exact hand piece make and model this pairing and recognition will not happen
if you can get 2nd hand units for the 3325 base then the base will accept them ( any number of additions ) but if the hand piece is different it will not work
you you need extra hand pieces then it may be best to consider a new system where you can buy extra phones and chargers

For the most part, the answer is "you can't". An MLX phone's extra port can operate a 3156-MFM module and derive the extra extension. There may be some conditions, like no DTMF receiver, and a few other problems.

I didn't ever sell one, but here's a link to a search

You can pick one up for as little as $50 on eBay.

Answermachine not picking up

I emailed Motorola support. Email bounced back and was redirected to their broadband support. Not what i needed at all. Tried again, same result. Gave up in the end and contacted BT who round a fault at the exchange which was blocking my Caller Id. Once they fixed this, the answer machine worked too. Weird. Especially as I plugged in an older phone earlier to test it and the answer machine on that one worked. Nil points to Motorola for support I have to say....

No dial tone

This is the time that love cannot help with. Buy yourself a new home phone where the massages will pile up. erase all massages on your mobile phone. It is time to buy a cell phone which will record all masseges that you've received.

Only base and one extra handset

I would not have thought so.

It should work with just one hand set

Just some Tips - Do you have any other phones or fax machine in the house? Check to make sure they are all hung up or press the off/ hang up button. If so, disconnect them until one brings back a dial tone when disconnected Also try cleaning the charger contacts with an eraser to the charger sends a signal that the phone is hung up.
Hope this helps!
