Question about RCA H5401RE1 4-Line Cordless Expansion Handset
Bought this phone and love it but needed an extension. So I bought the cordless handset, Model # H5401RE1-A, which is supposed to be compatible. I need to be able to talk on line one in my office and my business partner be on the same line in another part of the office using the handset as an extension. Can't do it, or at least I can't figure out how to do it. Can you help? If not, I need to return the handset immediately. Thanks, Susan Arnold
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

Some of the cordless phones do not allow more than one handset to be used at the same time. Is there a transfer button on the handsets? Can you call from one handset to the other? If not the phones probably have to be used one at a time.
To get off speaker phone just push the speaker phone button again.

You have the wrong adapter probably. Most common types are single line splitters and will not work like you want. They only split line one and 2 gets blocked out as they only have 2 copper connector on the plug centered to get line 1 only. If you want to use an adapter you will need a 2 line splitter like this one:http://www.trianglecables.com/tellinsplitl.html
A simpler solution is to plug your fax into your phone. On top of your phone are multiple jacks labeled L1/L2, L2 only or L2/data. Plug your phone into the wall using the L1/L2 jack then plug your fax into the L2 jack and this will work fine and still allow you use of line 2 on your phone. If you don't want to hear the ring then set your fax machine to auto answer. Hope this helps you.

You can plug a analog phone into the "Aux" port on the back of the phone (provided it has one).
This will be the same extension as the corded phone, but give you mobility. If someone picks up the corded phone while you are on the cordless, they will hear your conversation.

I was having the same problem...no caller ID. Then I looked up the phone on the RCA site:
Turns out there is no called ID on this model =(
