If you have a speakerphone on the base, try using that to make a call. If you have the same problem there is something fundamentally wrong with the phone. If not, try a new set of batteries in the handset. MAKE SURE you are using the same type of batteries that came with the phone in the first place. Don't let anyone in a tech store tell you 'that should be fine', check on the uniden website if you don't still have the box/manual/original batteries and make sure you get the right ones.
If that still doesn't work, Uniden will repair phones within warranty, send it off to them.

Try disconnecting the cordless phone base unit from the phone jack where it's connected and plug in a basic corded phone. If you still have the noise, the trouble is in the phone line itself and you'll need to contact your telephone service provider.
If the phone line isn't at fault, the trouble is in the base unit. Most likely, the power supply filtering isn't working, and you're hearing hum in the audio as a result. If the base unit uses an external plug-in adapter (a "wall-wart") with a DC output, you can try replacing it with a new one. Radio Shack sells replacements. Just be sure to get one with the same voltage rating, the same or higher current rating, and the right polarity plug. It may be that the old adapter isn't filtering any more because of its age.
If the adapter is an AC output type, or the base has a built-in power supply with a regular AC power cord, you should probably shop for a new phone. The trouble is in the unit itself, and you'll spend more trying to have it fixed than it's worth.
