Question about Uniden EZ-Dial Large Button Corded/Cordless Telephone with Digital Answering System and Caller ID "Announce...

1 Answer

I have a uniden XS 1455 phone. I want to modify the entries in the "speed-dial", and want to get one off the system completely. I've followed the manual faithfully and completely, but cannot seem to make the instructions work. I'm a poor old so-called "Senior", and am completely bamboozled! Can you please, oh please help? I would be so grateful. I've explained the situation to the agent in Dandenong, but he seems utterly useless!! So thanks a lot in anticipation of your help. Kind regards. MIKE POND.

    Dear Uniden,

    Your instructions regarding my problem ARE INCOMPLETE, and I still couldn't do what I wanted.It has taken me all this time to find out what to do, so I'm sorry, but I'm far from satified. I have found out BY MYSELF that I can fix the problem , using the "select" button, also the up/down buttons. Why doesn't someone at Uniden know about this....it's a pretty poor show, in my opinion.

    I told you that I am a "Senior", and these things, unless one is technically savvy, are very hard to solve. Not everyone is a techo nerd, and I'm certainly not!! I'm 69+, and believe me, I'm not just sitting here doing this for the lack of anything else to do!!

    In view of what is, (you must surely, and in all honesty, admit,) a big let-down by your company, I consider that to be "seen to do the right thing", you really should refund my $10. It's hardly a drop in the ocean to such a large company as yours, surely, but to me, it's quite a slice out of my pension. So may I humbly and respectfully request a refund? I would be most grateful, and it would show what a marvellous company Uniden is.....big-hearted and compassionate!!!!

    Kind regards, MIKE POND.



    P.S. If you can arange a refund, I will tell you how I solved the problem...deal or no deal? Thanks. You should note that there are absolutely no instructions at all in the handbook about this problem.

    Follow the instructions below:

    "Using the Speed Dial Memory

    Storing Numbers in Speed Dial Memory

    Your cordless phone can store up to ten numbers (up to 20 digits each) in the speed dial

    memory. To store number in memory:

    1) When the phone is in standby, press [memory]. The talk/batt low LED flashes.

    2) Use the keypad to enter the phone number.

    (To enter a 2-second pause between numbers, press [redial/

    pause]. Each pause counts as a digit. )

    3) Press [memory] again.

    4) Select the speed dial location where you would like to store the

    number ( [0] to [9] ). You will hear a confirmation tone indicating

    that the number has been stored.

    NOTE:

    • Storing a number to a speed dial location will

    overwrite the any previously stored number without

    warning.

    • When storing numbers into memory and the handset is idle (i.e., no key is

    pressed) for more than 0 seconds, it will beep rapidly, and then the phone

    will return to standby.

    Dialing a Stored Number

    1) When the phone is in standby, press [talk], and listen for a dial tone.

    2) Press [memory] and enter the speed dial entry ([0] – [9]) that has the stored number

    you want to dial. (If you enter a digit that does not contain a stored number, the

    handset will beep rapidly, and the phone will not dial.)

    Chain Dialing

    The speed dial memory is not limited to phone numbers. You can store any number (up

    to 20 digits) that you need to enter once your call connects. This is referred to as Chain

    Dialing. An example is a frequently refilled prescription number. Store your pharmacy

    phone number in one speed dial and your most frequently refilled prescription number

    as another speed dial. To use, once you ring your pharmacy's automated prescription

    line, simply press [memory] and the speed dial number where you stored your account

    number.

    Erasing a Stored Number from Memory

    1) With the phone in standby, press [memory] twice.

    2) Press the number of the speed dial entry. A tone indicates that the stored number is

    erased from memory. "

I have 2 problems. 1. The orange message light will not stop flashing no matter what I do. 2. Some how the system was switched from touch tone to dial tone. I can't seem to that switched either.


Resetting the voice message waiting indicator
When you receive a new voice mail message, the new message LED on the top of the handset flashes. In the event your message waiting light gets out of sync with your phone company's
voice messaging system, you can manually reset it back to the "No messages waiting" state.
1. Press and hold FiND on the base for five seconds.
Note: The handsets connected to the base will start to beep, however, keep pressing for five seconds.
2. A beep sounds and the message alert tone is reset.
Changing the dial mode
Your phone can communicate with the telephone network in two different ways: tone dialing or pulse dialing. These days, most base networks use a method called tone dialing, so your phone comes programmed for tone dialing. If your phone company uses pulse dialing, you will need to change your phone's dial mode. If you don't get a dial tone or can't connect to the telephone network, please follow the steps below to modify your phone's settings:
1. Press MENU/SELECT.
2. Select the Global Setup menu, and then the Dial Mode submenu.
3. Scroll to highlight Pulse.
4. Press MENU/SELECT. You will hear a confirmation tone.
If you ever need to change the dial mode back to tone dialing, follow the same procedure, but select Tone in step 3.

Finally for future ease of use, here is a link to the user manual were I copied the above information from:

UNIDEN TRU8888-CALLER ID DOES NOT WORK


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. I think you have stored more than 100 Caller ID messages and hence the caller ID is not showing on Uniden Tru8888. In the following cases the caller ID will not be shown-

If you answer a call before the Caller ID message is received (for example, before the second ring), the Caller ID message will not appear.

When the call is received via a telephone company that does not offer Caller ID service, the caller’s phone number and name does not appear. (This includes some international calls.)

When the call is via a private branch exchange (PBX), the caller's phone number and name may not appear.

You may receive any one of the following messages:

When a private name is received; Private Name
When a private number is received; Private Number
When a unknown name is received; Unknown Name
When a unknown number is received; Unknown Number
When invalid data is received; Incomplete Data

The Caller ID list stores information for incoming calls - even unanswered calls. You can store up to 100 Caller ID messages and phonebook entries (including Speed Dials) for each handset and the base. You can view the Caller ID list through the handset or base during a call or when the phone is in standby mode.

Memory locations for Caller ID messages and Phonebook entries (including Speed Dials) are common, you can store up to all 100 entries for each handset and the base. Caller ID messages are not stored when you have 100 phonebook entries. When you have stored a total of 100 phonebook entries and Caller ID messages, the oldest Caller ID message is overwritten.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Forgot how to add new phone numbers and names to my phone


Creating Phonebook Entries To store names and numbers in your Phonebook, please follow these steps: When the phone is in standby mode, press [phonebook icon] (on the left side of the four-way key). To create a new phonebook entry, press the NEW soft key. Edit Name appears. Enter the name for this entry (Edit Name). Use the keypad to enter a name for this entry; the name can contain up to 1 6 characters. (See page 1 1 for instructions on entering text.) If you do not want to enter a name for this entry, your phone will store this entry as No Name. Press the OK soft key when you are finished. Enter the number for this entry (Edit Number 1). Once you have stored a name, EDIT NUMBER1 appears next. Use the number keypad, [right] or [left] on the four-way function key, or the DELETE soft key to enter the phone number 1 ; the phone number can contain up to 32 digits. If you need the phone to pause between digits when it’s dialing (for example, to enter an extension or an access code), press [redial/pause] to insert a two-second pause. You will see a P in the display. You can also use more than one pause together if two seconds is not long enough. Each pause counts as one digit. Press the OK soft key when you are finished. EDIT NUMBER 2 appears next. Use the same procedure when entering the phone number 1 to enter the phone number 2. Press the OK soft key when you are finished. Assign a personal ring tone for this entry (Personal Ring). You can attach a personalized ring tone to each phonebook entry; the phone will use this ring tone when this person calls. Move the cursor to highlight one of the 20 different ring tone options. As you highlight each ring tone, you will hear a sample of that tone. When you hear the ring tone you want to use, press the OK soft key. If you do not want to use a personal ring tone for this phonebook entry, select the NO SELECTION option, and the phone will use your standard ring tone setting. Assign this entry to a Speed Dial number (Speed Dial). Your phone has 1 0 speed dial numbers, 0 to 9. Move the cursor to select the speed dial number you want to assign to this phonebook entry, and press the OK soft key. Select NO SELECTION if you do not want to assign this entry to a speed dial number. Press the OK soft key. You will hear a tone confirming that the new phonebook entry has been stored, and DONE! appears in the display. Note: When the shared memory is full, the oldest Caller ID message is overwritten.

How to modify details in system speed dial


Easiest way would be to log into the programming tool and make the change there. However if you do not have access to the tool you should ask you installer to provide you with it. There is a user mode that will allow you to change only the Speed dial numbers and text.

SPEED DIAL


MMC 606 assigns Speed Dial Blocks to the System and Individual phones. You need to verify if all blocks are used or assign a block ( 10 entries per block usually ) to the phone you are trying to assign speed dials.
