Question about Uniden Cordless Phone
Ok. My problem was that the main phone and answering machine worked fine, but the second handset kept saying, "Out of range" no matter what I did. If I tried to make a call, it would say, "Connecting...", but after a while, "Out of range".
I followed the manual which offers two mechanisms to deregister the phone. The first method (press Menu soft key...) went through the motions and then said, "Out of range"!
The second method in the manual worked - after I worked out what the instructions mean!
So here's the answer:
Take the phone out of the cradle (charger). Press and hold simultaneously for more than 5 seconds the red telephone-symbol key and the # key.
You will hear a confirmation tone and DEREGISTRATION COMPLETE appears.
Now go to the OTHER phone (the MAIN phone). Take it out of its cradle and put the deregistered second handset in the MAIN cradle. The window displays a few messages and then REGISTRATION COMPLETE.
After that, for me, everything worked.
(Put each phone back in its normal cradle.)

Ok I TOO have suffered from the "Out of range" problem with the Uniden 5.8 Ghz cordless phone (with 3 bases). The "Out of Range" appears on all 3 phones. The phones are not Out of range, this problem has occurred one other time. Thank heaven for other people posting their problems (Dr Tech :)) Although there are some posts that state unplugging the battery and/or the power cord works, it did not for me. Here's what DID work.
First: Deregister the phone. Hold the red end button down and the # button at the same time for about 5-8 seconds or until it beeps and says

(remove cover, unplug battery, while holding down * & # keys, plug in battery, then let keys go. Now press top right 3rd soft key below LCD display and reset eeprom. Place in base and re-register. If you get 'Registration Failed' then press End & # together until it says 'Registered'. Otherwise, you may have to get it repaired/replaced according to Uniden).

My phone was brand new out of the box and had the "out of range" error on both handsets. I read thru these suggestions and began by choosing "System Reset" as instructed. This did not work on its own so I tried to "deregister" the handsets. This didn't work either!!!
Out of frustration I took the batteries out of the handsets and once I replaced the batteries and put the handset back in the cradle, everything reset itself and they are all working fine now.

You should do the Deregistration and then do the Registration again

You have to put the both unit on the BASE for 10 sec. to sync.

We had 1 phone of the 2 which said "out of range".After trying everything, including registration etc, we pulled the battery out of the back of the phone, disconnected the leads. Gave it a clean, then replaced it. Now the phone works normally.

Solution #4 above works!!! Take the battery of the handset out, wait for a while, then plug the battery back in. Works like a charm!!

I called the Uniden support, and although it took awhile, the customer service representative was able to get all three of my phone sets registering again with the base.

I changed the battery from headset one with headset 2 and problem solved. Before I changed that battery, I left the one that said out of range to sit for about 5 minutes before I plugged in other battery

Unplug the phones from the jack, and remove the batteries and power cord, wait 2 minutes, see if that helps.that is what i did the first time and it worked but i dont thing it will work the next.

Go to Menu then select System Reset, then selct Replacing base, then answer Yes. This will advise you to place in base to register and it will do so in about 5 seconds.

I had 'Out of Range' issues for my second Uniden WDECT 3355 +2 handset. Every time I hit the 'talk' button, it would display 'Out of Range' on the screen. Here's what I did (in order):

Press the Hand Set (HS) button on the main base which causes your phone to beep loudly. Then pick up the phone, press "Talk" to stop the beeping and you're all set again. This will get rid of the "Out of Range" and "Searching" mode and you will be able to use your phone again.
