Hello, +86 is the extension to call in China!
You probably have to change your country code's setting for outgoing calls,
Can you check you rsettings here:
- Open Phone Log Screen
- Click menu "Options".
- Click Smart Dial;

And in general all your outgoing call settings related to region
Hope this helps

I get busy signal when dialing from contact list in my Uniden Dect 6.0

New telephone company procedures in many areas now
require that all 10 digits be dialed even for local calls --
Area Code + Exchange + Number

Perhaps your Directory listings do not include the area code ?

Good luck!

I had the same problem and found that the speed dial feature in "settings" is not turned on by default even though voice mail number is pre-programed into the speed speed list. Go to "Settings & Tools/Call Settings/One Touch Dial" and turn the option on.

Setting up a speed dial

from the website:

How do I set speed dial for one of my contacts? First, find the contact in your Contact List, highlight it, and press OK. Then select Options -> Speed Dialing and press OK.

Choose one of the numbers from the list and select Assign to assign it to your contact. You can now use 1-Touch Dialing for that phone number. Just press and hold that assigned one or two digit number instead of dialing the contact's entire phone number.
