Need to change ringer

This phone doesn't give you the option of changing the ringer tone. You can change the ringer volume, or turn it off completely. See page 7 of the manual:

Phone won't ring

There may be a ringer control button on the side that is in the off position or a menu option to control the ringer.

Ringer volume

well there either should be a switch on the outside of the phone or on the answering machine part, but also, if there is a + and - button on the actually phone part to turn the ear piece up, when you are not on the phone, hit the + button and you should hear the ringer, hit it until its the loudest.

Change ringtone on base also volume

This is the best I can do to answer part of your problem. I solved my problem by taking this advice from Uniden for their dual phone set:
Selecting Ringer Tone (handset only)

How do I set/change my ringer tone on the handset?
There are two different way to change you ringer tone depending on which model you have.
If you do not have an option in your menu on you handset for handset setup, then you will simply hit the volume ^ or v arrows on the handset rapidly scrolling through the 2 ringer tones and volume combinations.

Does not ring

is the ringer on the base or phone on? check that first.if that's ok, then plug a regular corded phone into the phone jack and see if there is dial tone.if there isn't any, try other jacks in the house. if still not working, call your phone company.

Ringer off

The VT-9118 can use one of 4 different ring tones, and can be turned off. 

To reset your ring tone: 
  1. Remove the handset from the base. 
  2. Press PROG. You should hear a single short beep.
  3. Press #.  You should hear a single short beep. 
  4. Press a number 1 through 4. You should hear a long "ring" tone (it might be startling!). You can try other numbers from 1 to 4 to hear them all.  
  5. Press MEM to confirm your ring. You will hear a medium beep. 
To turn the ringer off, follow the same instructions, but choose number 5. 

Hope this helps you. If you need for information, you can download the user manual from
