Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

Open Question

Uniden phone says unavailable.

We are living in a rental home. It came with two Uniden phones. We recently hooked up Comcast internet and phone an tv service. Phones have been working fine for about a week.

All of sudden the phones are not working. I did leave one of the phones off the hook last night. Is that the problem? Does it require hours to recharge? I have had it back on the cradle for about 4 hours.

SOURCE: 2 uniden cordless phones aren't working

I don't know if this helps, but perhaps the problem is using two or more phones. On a whim, I charged a Uniden EXP 970 that my daughter gave me a few years ago. Charged right up and it has been working for about two days. I didn't think it would charge at all but to have it actually work, I was amazed!! Will post if it quits anytime soon.

FYI I bought two phones from AT&T, each around $200 and neither of them worked after a week. I was not happy! These less expensive phones seem to do a much better job!

Okay, this solved it for me, so maybe it'll help others.

Basically, you just need to re-register the phones by placing each one on the base unit and leaving it there for at least five seconds after the charge/in use LED light stops flashing.

According to the manual, it's necessary to re-register each phone after a power failure or if the batteries get very low or die. If you're experiencing the "connecting..." problem, this will probably fix it!

SOURCE: No dial tone on handset

It may not be registed with the main unit. You may need to register the handset. With my uniden all i have to do is put it in the main base until it says what handset it is (it should be a number).

If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask

Try moving the main base to a different part of the house, if that doesnt work, change the telephone line cord.

It sounds like your hansets are no longer registered to the base unit. Since you have not listed the specific model phone you have I cannot give you specific steps to re-register the handsets to the base, however if you go to you can find the manual for your phone and follow the instructions for re-registering the handsets

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 ...

Using home phone causes comcast wireless internet to disconnect

Wireless internet runs at 2.4ghz. Your portable phone is probably also 2.4ghz and is knocking out your internet connection when in use. Look for an 800mhz or 5.8ghz phone as a replacement.

Phone showing "unavailable" and there is no dial tone. I have tr

Unavailable and no dial tone usually means that there is a bad wire between the base and the wall or the wall jack is bad.

No dial tone on headset 2

If you have a regular phone, then connect it directly to the Vonage phone router. Be sure and connect to the correct port on the router (mine has 2 ports, and I use both, but a single line subscriber would only hook to Line 1).
See if you get a dial tone with the standard phone hooked up (we are testing that the Vonage is good.first, then we'll deal with the Uniden phone.). If not, what do the light's indicate on the Vonage router? Have you subscribed to Vonage? Do you have a cable between your router and the Vonage router?

Reply back back what you find and I can help you more.

Do I have to use the DSL filter. I have comcast phone service. thank you

The DSL Filter is only needed if you have a telephone and DSL service coming through on the same line. You are using Comcast digital voice, are you using them for cable internet as well?

I presume you are. then I would say you dont need the filters.
If you still have DSL and home phone then use the filters on the phone
