How does one get the handsets to record the new speed dial numbers on the base phone?

How does one get the handsets record the new speed dial numbers on the base phone? I updated a speed dial number (0) on the base, but the handsets still have the old speed dial number. I hope I don't have to program every handset. Wasn't sure if registering the handsets (what does that mean?) again will help. Phil PS We often have the phone ring and can't hear anybody. The phones work when we dial out.

Re: How does one get the handsets to record the new speed...

I'm pretty sure the speed dial numbers are programmed on a per-phone basis. Most people would not want changes on one phone's speed dial to effect the other phones. I know registering the handsets will not make a difference. If the cordless phone is working, it's registered to the base. This is required so your neighbor cannot buy the same phone model and use your phone line. In the old days cordless phones were permanently linked to one base but now you can get extra handsets on many systems and "register" the phone to work on your base.

I need instruction manual to program speed dial

I was unable to locate a user manual for that particular device, however the basic instructions for programming speed dial functions are normally very similar between most phones.

Generally there are ONE TOUCH Speed Dial buttons labelled something like M1, M2, and M3 on the dial pad somewhere.

There should also be another button labelled PROG or STORE on the keypad as well.

Normally to program a number into a ONE TOUCH speed dial memory location you carry out the following procedure:

Lift the handset.

Then press the PROG (or STORE) button.

Now just use the number keypad to dial the full telephone number that you want to store in a Speed Dial location.

Once the full telephone number is dialed, then push the M1 button to store that phone number in the M1 One Touch Speed Dial location.

The phone may or may not show some kind of confirmation that the M1 location was just programmed, then just hang up the handset.

Now when you lift the handset and press the M1 button, the phone should automatically dial the phone number you programmed into it.

Now just repeat the same process for the M2 and M3 One Touch Speed Dial buttons with other phone numbers if necessary.

To change one of the Speed Dial numbers, just carry out the normal programming procedure for that location using the new phone number and the old number will simply be overwritten.

I truly hope that was helpful to you.
Good luck and take care.

Programming Auto Dial Number

Yep. Those are speed dial numbers. They are programmed from ext 101 or the main phone. Without picking up the handset, press PROG **1234 and dial 001 and ENTER. Dial your 3 digit speed dial number If there is something there, it will be displayed. A speed dial number is stored with the trunk access code in it (usually 9) so if you're putting in a new number, include the "9" plus the number exactly the way you dial it. Dial your new number with the access code and press ENTER.

Number changed :-)
You can keep putting in a whole boatload of new numbers with this procedure.

Handset has No link to base

I was having the same problem with the same model phone, and fixed the problem by rebooting the phone – unplugging the AC and phone cord from the base station and plugging both back it, then removing and replacing the handset to regenerate the security code.
