    I have the same exact problem with an AT&T phone. Worked flawlessly for over 2 years and all of a sudden is "searching..", and to make it worse, sometimes a call will be disconnected when it starts "searching...". I'm going to call Bell Canada to see if they know why.

Phone has beep & no dial tone. Screen says its searching

I was unable to locate a manual for your phone online, but can offer some suggestions to solve your problem.

Most cordless phones beep in battery low, out of range, and other situations. Since it is also displaying the "Searching" message, it indicates that it lost its link with the base due to being brought too far from it or the battery power has fallen to low to permit use as far as it may have worked before.

The quick fix is to simply place the phone into the base / charger. This re-establishes a security link between the cordless handset and your telephone line. This is a safeguard that is used to prevent others with the same cordless phone from merely getting "near your base / charger" and gaining access to your dial tone to place calls on your phone line.

If the battery is low, it should left to remain on the base / charger long enough to fully charge the battery. If the battery fails to charge, there may be an issue with the base / charger; but it is much more likely to be a problem with a battery that has reached the end of its useful life (batteries seldom last more than a couple of years and may not last a single year depending on usage). Either condition will require replacement of the faulty device before using again.

If you need more help, you may want to try Thompson Electronics (if purchased prior to 2011) at 800-448-0329 or their website; as it appears GE contracts with them for support after the warranty period.

Good luck!

Philips SE 455 twin set cordless: The charge lasts less than an hour when using speaker phone, so I am looking for replacement batteries. Phones only 2-3 years old and absolutely fine in all other...

A higher capacity battery should work even better because a fully charged 900 mAh battery allows the phone to operate 50% longer than a 600 mAh battery between charges. I have had good results with Rayovac Recharge Plus 900 mAh in my Philips SE450. This phone will latch and not operate upon ringing if it doesn't like its batteries (probably high internal resistance), even though the batteries test good on a battery tester.

I bought a Uniden DECT 1035 last week and it has been working fine until yesterday when the screen went blank and only the status light was glowing. I charged it all night but still nothing has changed....

I would take it back to the store, there is a communication problem between the base and the remote phone, the only thing I can suggest is unplug the power and phone jack from the wall outlet for 30 seconds to see if the Uniden can reset.

My htc touch pro 2 worked fine, now it wont accept my password and now my phone is locked..

A hard reset would be the last option you can do, but unfortunately all your data would be lost,since you cant "log In" to do a backup
these are the steps
press and hold volume down and enter buttons then using your stylus press the reset button until a restore message appears, holding three buttons until a message appear
to hard reset,select hard rest by pressing up volume key.
After that just follow th on screen instruction until done. Your Phone may reboot after this.
