On the phone that says, 'out of range' you need to select MENU then scroll down to the option that says REGISTER and select that. Then go to your BASE UNIT and push and hold the PAGE button until the 'bad' phone synch's up again. .... I called into motorola support and they stepped me through this.

The issue here in "most caases not all is the battery is at its prime" i would first buy a new battery let it charge for 20 hours!! then try reregistering the headset. if that does not work or reregister then you know now you got a bad transmitter radio inside. Try all reset methods as well even before you spend $12 bucks on a battery pack. Chances are its the battery, worse comes to worse the headset needs to be replaced.
thanks this was a FREE solution please do be considerate and rate and leave postive feedback thanks.
It's simple!!!!when u bought your new mobile first charge it ti 12 hour!!!some salesman say that charge ur mobile 3 or 6 hour.It is wrong.First charge of mobile is important.SO CHARGE YOUR MOBILE 12 HOUR AT FIRST
when I had this problem, it was the battery... it wouldn't charge anymore. you have to go get a new battery. Unfortunately, over charging them or using them a lot and keeping them on the bases and not letting them die off can cause this to happen long before it should so go get yourself a new battery (I think Wal Mart has a good selection) Make sure you charge it for a minimum of 8-12 hours before you use it and then let it die completely before you re-charge it. that should work for you.
I hope this helps.

first of all it could be caused by weak batteries, im not sure how old the phone is or what type batteries it has.It might also help to move the base unit to a new location but if it worked fine where it is now before i would check the batteries first. It probably has Nicad batteries and those go bad from being used for short periods of time then put back on the charger, it is best with nicads to run them way down about once a month and then give them a full charge of 12 or 15 hours
The handsets are reading out of range because they have lost connection with the base. This happens mostly during peak power demands or power outages, but can also happen when the phone is unplugged for any amount of time. This can also cause, at times, the answering machine to stop picking up calls. To remedy this issue, reset the phone system. Please follow the instructions below:
To reset the phone: 1. Disconnect the power adapter, phone line, and remove all batteries from the base and all handsets. Leave it disconnected for 30 seconds to reset the base.
2. Place the batteries in the handsets first and then plug in the power adapter and phone line. Do not place the batteries back in the base yet.
3. Put the handset in the charge cradle.
4. It may take up to 1 minute for the "Out of Range" to clear from the display.
5. Once the "Out of Range" is cleared from the handset place the back up batteries back into the base.
Make certain that the phone line cable is plugged securely into the base unit in the back. Disconnect it and re-insert it into the connector firmly. That should do it if the battery pack has been sufficiently charged.....12-16 hours should do it for the initial charge. Of course, you can't ecxpect it to find the base unit if it is 2 miles away, under a metal box! Just kidding!!
