Question about Vtech 5.8GHz Analog Cordless Phone
I have the VTech 5.8 GHz Cordless phone and there is constant static when in use. I have to stand right by the base to be able to have a conversation. I've used a DSL line filter but noticed no difference. I have electrical appliances so I'm guessing there is interference there. Should I move the base to a remote bedroom where there are fewer electrical devices?
The best thing is to install a phone filter to your phone jack....ask your phone company for one. It worked brilliantly for me.

I have the same problem with uniden. I have called the telephone company out 3 times for all the static. They have told me that witht the 5.8 I could have a neighbor using the same phone and have constant static. It is so annoying. I spent alot on this phone and not sure what to do

FIRST YOU MUST DETERMINE IF THERE IS STATIC ON YOUR PHONE LINE. EVEN WITH DSL THERE CAN BE STATIC EVEN IF THE INTERNET IS WORKING. IF YOU HAVE A CORDED PHONE TAKE IT OUT TO THE PHONE INTERFACE BOX AND OPEN THE BOX / THERE SHOULD BE A PLACE YOU CAN UNPLUG YOUR WIRING FROM THE PHONE COMPANY. PLUG YOUR PHONE INTO WHERE YOU UNPLUGGED THE WIRING AND SEE IF YOU HAVE STATIC THERE. IF YOU STILL HEAR STATIC IT IS THE PHONE COMPANY'S PROBLEM.
SOMETIMES UNPLUGGING FROM BOTH THE PHONE LINE AND THE POWER SOURCE AND REMOVING THE BATTERIES WILL CORRECT SOME PROBLEMS. FOR SECOND PHONES ON A SYSTEM THEY MUST BE REGISTERED TO THE BASE. ONCE IT IS REGISTERED IT SHOULD SHOW A NUMBER IN CORNER OF SCREEN (2)
THE MANUAL SHOULD TELL YOU HOW TO REGISTER SETS. IF YOU HAVE LOST YOUR MANUAL SEE IF YOU CAN DOWNLOAD ONE FROM THE WEB SITE OR CALL VTECH 1-800-595-9511
