SOURCE: SIGNAL BOOSTER FOR CORDLESS HOME PHONE

The only way to increase the range on a cordless phone is to improve the antenna system. Since the antenna is in the base, the easiest thing to do is move the base to a better location, as high as possible. If that is not possible, you can go to any radio repair shop and ask them to open the base and solder an external antenna connector to it. Mine was done for five dollars. Then buy an external high gain antenna of the correct frequency and place it as high as possible in an area free of obstructions. This will improve your range by between 10 and 50 percent. The simplest way is to Google long range phones and make sure you find one at 900 mhz which is a legal frequency. The other phones are illegal in North America because of their potential to interfere with frequencies on such bands as police and fire and amateur. Also, make sure it does not put out more than one watt, (still 10x the power of the average cordless phone). The Engenius is probably the best cordless phone which is legal in Canada and the US but it can get pretty expensive. There is no easy way to do it. I consider myself an expert because I have been researching the issue for many months. I recently bought an ATTCL82209. With the base in a good position with clear line of sight, mine gives me a range of 525 yards which is almost a third of a mile. With an external antenna I have obtained 800 metres which is half a mile. But an urban environment has so many obstacles and variations that consistent long range with any phone is impossible. There is a reason why so many people pay exhorbitant monthly fees to use a cellphone, cellphones are the only real solution to urban communication problems, and the cell providers know it. If you are in Canada, www.3centcell.com, might be a viable solution. Trust me, I know my stuff, I have spent months researching every possible angle.

SOURCE: Static on my pair of Uniden cordless phones (Model DECT1560)

Is your base near a computer or other electronics? Also, make sure your microwave is not on. I get static if I do any of those things.

SOURCE: Wifi interference??

The short answer is that it could interfere with the wi-fi, but your wi-fi should not interfere with your phone because it uses WDECT, "wide-band digitally enhanced cordless telecommunications" engineering. No matter how tight the bandwidth is on any RF transmission, power, proximity, and harmonics all play a roll. Ideally we want the power from our transmission to occupy the target frequency but the reality in RF is that this is nearly impossible without DSP filters. I have pasted some extra info below to help answer this question.

Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications
(DECT), known as Digital European Cordless Telephone[1] until 1995, is an ETSI standard for digital portable phones (cordless home telephones), commonly used for domestic or corporate purposes. It is recognised by the ITU as fulfilling the IMT-2000 requirements and thus qualifies as a 3G system.


The four most common frequencies today are 900MHz, 2.4GHz, 5.8GHz and DECT 6.0:

900 MHz Currentlythe most common frequency for cordless phones, 900MHz phones may offera greater range than other frequencies. However, the 900MHz spectrum iscluttered and may result in interference with baby monitors and other900MHz cordless phones. Radio scanners can also easily pick up thisband. 2.4 GHz 2.4GHzphones offer better clarity and security than 900MHz, but mayexperience some interference with microwave ovens and wirelessnetworking (wi-fi) products. 5.8 GHz Themost advanced cordless phones available, 5.8GHz phones transmit on anew, open frequency and have the least chance for interference. Theywill not interfere with wireless networking (wi-fi) products. DECT 6.0 DECT6.0 operates on the 1.9GHz frequency. Though newly approved in the US,this frequency has been used for many years in Europe and can increasecall clarity and security. The wi-fi friendly DECT technology easilyintegrates into homes with wi-fi and internet services because the1.9GHz frequency is exclusive to DECT, making it interference free forcordless communications.

What does it mean when it says searching on my cordless phone


This usually indicates that the handset is having a problem establishing a wireless connection with the base unit.

Try placing the affected handset in the base charging cradle for a few seconds to let them sync to each other. Remove the handset and try again. If you are able to use the phone again, but only within a few feet of the base, there is probably an issue with the radio or antenna in the handset (assuming all other handset works fine). If all associated wireless handsets have the same scanning message and only work close to the base, then the problem is likely with the radio or antenna in the base, instead. You may be able to see a loose or broken connection if you wish to dig around - but if there's nothing obvious - you're probably better off leaving it alone and obtaining a replacement instead. Before beginning - be sure to unplug the AC power and telephone wire from the base and the remove the battery from the handsets.

Without a specific model number for your phone, only a generic solution can be provided. There may or may not be additional suggestions to help you solve the problem if you provide the Uniden model number.
Good luck!

Uniden wall-mounted cordless phone unusable since DSL installed


This happened because there are too many phones sharing the same line with no power amplifiers.
Your phone line is self powered by a small current generated by the phone company (that's why old, wired phones don't need a separate power connection to ring or make calls, it's enough to just plug them in). Each phone you connect to the same line acts as a resistor and drains some of this current. Eventually not enough power is left to carry the signal.
The phone company technician can fix this by installing power amplifiers.
In any case, I would test this theory by unhooking all other phones and checking the cordless ones on their own.
If they work fine, call back the phone company and ask for a "real" repair person..
