Question about Uniden Cordless Phone
I too bought an original TRU9496 with one handset. I then bought 2 extra handsets TCX905 and am unable to register them. I removed the battery cover, verified that I actually purchased the TCX905 but am still unable to register.

Forget what I said before, the TCX905 does NOT fit into the TRU 8866 base unit with the battery cover on. REMOVE THE BATTERY COVER TO REGISTER THE TCX905 WITH THE TRU8866 and everything works fine....

SOURCE: Handset Fails to Register
It is quite possible that you'll need to go into the menu settings on your base-unit and reset the unit or restore factory default, whichever option it gives you. Also, look in the menu on the phone to see if there is an option to reset the handset also. After resetting the unit and/or handsets, try to register the handsets again, one at a time. If that still does not fix the problem, you may have handsets that are not compatible with your system, or your system may not be able to support that many phones. However, if you have the right handsets, and your system can host that many handsets, then I'm confident that resetting the unit and re-registering your handsets should fix your problem.
Hope this helps! Have a nice day!

I just successfully registered 4 TCX905s with my TRU8865 base - it's documented in the TCX905 manual.
Be sure the handset you want to register is fully charged.
Remove the handset you want to register from its charger.
Now unplug the AC for the main base, hold down the 'find handset' key on the base and plug the AC in again, when it beeps, you can let go of that button.
Hold down the '#' on the handset you want to register, it will show 'Registering Handset...' and when it beeps, it's done - registered, you're good to go :)

I have a TRU9585 Base.
On the BASE press menu/select, scroll down to register handset using the button to the right of the display, and press select. The LED on the base will flash quickly.
Now pick up the TWX955 handset (the one that won't register), and press and hold # until it registers.
Worked for me.
