Not exactly sure I understand the question, but let me give it a shot...

You have a number of messages, but the number of calls are more, correct.
This maybe due to people calling and not leaving a message?

Here is a link to the manual for your phone.. I hope this may help you:

You maybe able to just hit the DELETE button to delete the number 8 Caller Id, I think that is what you want, if not please look for it in the manual.

How can I call back a private number on my vtech house phone


You can't. When caller-ID shows "Private", it means that the caller does not want you to know what number they are calling from. (Tip: These are good messages to let the answering machine answer. If they want you to call back, they'll have to leave a number.)

The red LED new call light doesn't turn off when there are no new calls. Any ideas?


What make and model phone? The new call light, or the new message light? If the latter then you have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system takes messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

Uniden Dect1560 - For incoming calls it only rings 3 times. Is there a way to make it ring 6 times before it goes to voice mail?


Your model is a phone only, without an answering machine built in. This means that voicemail is provided by your phone service on your line, and that's where you need to adjust the rings before it picks up. The phone itself has nothing to do with it.

You may have to call your service provider for setup instructions because not all systems are the same, but here's how it usually works. Pick up your phone and call your own number to reach your voicemail. When your message starts, press the * button and the system will ask for your pass code (just like when you call to get your messages). Follow the voice prompts to reach the main menu, then mailbox settings, where you'll be able to change the ring count.

If these steps don't work for you, ask your service provider what you need to do.

How do i put a caller on hold


Tha particular phone does not have a HOLD button. If you are referring to picking up a call waiting call that "beeps" in while you are on your current call, that can be answered by depressing the FLASH/EXIT button.
