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.

SOURCE: No dial tone in Clarity C4230 setup

if you can get dial tone with another phone, look into manual for any instructions, usually a toll free number for help. ( BEST ) otherwise take phone back for exchange. may be problem in the board.

SOURCE: When I get ready to dial, phone beeps 3 times

You must have an answering service from your phone company, and probably don't know about it. Try dialing your own # and wait for the prompts.

SOURCE: Has new battery, but no dial-tone,

Replacing the battery reset the phone to the factory defaults, which means you'll have to restore the connection to the base in Menu-Setup

SOURCE: phone beeps before dial tone

usually this means you have voicemail...listen to the messages and delete them and the beeps should go away...

How do i retrieve messages when out of town, from my v-tech 5.8 & can i use my cell phone to do this ?

If I remember correctly you can remotely connect to your answering machine.
When you call the phone and it greets you (assuming you haven't changed the code) press 19 to get it going.
You should then begin to hear your messages. After you get past the 19 part (options are as follows)
1 ) Plays all messages 2 ) Plays only new messages 3 ) (During playback) Deletes the current message 33 ) Deletes ALL OLD messages 4 ) Repeats current message 5 ) Stop 5 ) (While no message being played) Lists Available Commands 6 ) Skips to next message 7 ) (While no message being played) Record new greeting 8 ) Hang up 0 ) Turn Answering Machine on/off

No dial tone on same used replacement phone

If I am not mistaken, you go to menu and scroll down to deregister the handset. After that, try reregistering it in the vicinity of the phone with the phone cord plug.

One phone is not working.

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.

I have a 3 phone 5.8GHz digital system. Suddenly all 3 say connecting as they sit in the charger.

I used the instructions from you to unregister and reregister each phone and they are all working again. It may have occurred because one phone was left offcradle until the battery went dead, I might need new rechargeables sometime soon...

Uniden cordless phones

This sounds like the register-deregister problem elsewhere on this page. Try holding down the "end" and "#" buttons for about 6 seconds to deregister the phones and then reregister them. I had this problem too and it worked for me.
