Registering Handsets to the Base
Whichever handset you choose to charge in the base is automatically
registered to the base. Any additional handsets must also be registered to
the base before you can use them.
Be sure both handsets are fully charged.
One at a time, place each handset in the base. The charge/in use LED on
the base begins to flash, indicating the base is registering the handset.
Wait for at least five seconds, then pick up the handset and press
[talk/flash]. If the display shows TALK, the handset is registered. If not,
place the handset in the base to try again.
Press [end] and continue with the next handset.
Once both handsets are registered, it doesn’t matter which
handset is placed in the base or the charger.
When you charge the handsets, Caller
ID summary screen and the name of
the handset appears.

This can be find from uniden website.

Change number of rings on uniden phone model exi 8560

The EXI8560 isn't an answering machine. It will continue to ring until someone or some answering machine picks up or the caller hangs up.

To change the ring count on your answering machine, consult the documentation for that answering machine. If you require further assistance, please add a comment to this question and specify the make and model of your answering machine.

1 Answer

I have a Uniden cordless unit hooked in 4 lines. Incoming calls ring briefly for about 1 second and go out! You can talk if you pick up but not sure why no normal rings. There is no problem calling out....

When someone calls you and your phone behaves this way, does the caller get disconnected? The phone may be causing this, but it may also be due to trouble in the telephone line itself. The trouble is caused by defective wiring, a partial short circuit. When you pick up your phone to call out, the voltage on the phone line is low and it works normally. When you get an incoming call, a high voltage is sent to ring the phone. Because of the partial short, the phone company's equipment thinks you've answered the call as soon as the ringing starts. But you haven't picked up the phone, so the phone company's equipment thinks you've hung up and disconnects the call. The result is that short burst of ringing.

Disconnect the cordless phone base unit from the line and try another phone. If you still have the trouble this confirms the line is at fault. You'll need to contact your phone service provider for service. If it's in the outside wiring, they're responsible for repair. If the problem is in your home wiring, you may need to pay them unless you have a wiring maintenance plan.

If the problem goes away when the cordless base is disconnected, then it's time for a new phone.

Hi There my uniden 5.8GHz Digital rings only twice before answer machine starts how do i extent the time of ringing? thanks

For the TRU9380, you can set the number of rings for the answering system from the handset. Press Menu/Clear and select Answ Setup. Then choose the Ring Time submenu. Move the cursor to select the number of rings (Toll Saver, 2, 4 or 6 Times). Press Select to save the setting; you will hear a confirmation tone. (Note: the answering machine must be on.) In Toll Saver, it picks up after 2 rings if you have new messages and after 4 rings, otherwise.

You can find the manual for most Uniden 5.8 GHz phones by looking up your model here: . Check here if you have a different model.

I hope this helps.

most multi-phone systems require you to dock the phone in the main cradle to sync it up with the system. not sure if you tried this already but it's pretty simple to do. just insert handswt 1 into the main base (answering machine) then remove it and plug the second hand set into the main base. you also have to keep in mind thatr when you answer the cakk with say handset one the only way you can use the second handset is by transferring the call. if your phones handsets are equipt with a transfer button then that may the problem

Uniden 5.8Ghz phone.

You need to reset the main base unit. Unplug the power from the back of the base. While the power is disconnected, press and hold the delete key while reconnecting the power. Wait for a long beep tone. When the display shows 88 or P, press play button one time. If you have a phone without an answering machine, disconnect the power from the back of the base, press and hold find hs button while reconnecting power.

For the handset, you can use the menu button to check the HS Setup settings. For the answering machine, you may have pressed the side button that turns it off. It would say "off" on the lcd if you did that. According to the manual (I just bought one of these).
