Question about Uniden DECT 6.0 Cordless Telephone Expansion Handset
My Uniden 2080-2 rings once at differnet time intervals (no set pattern) from every 10 minutes to once every several hours with no incomming call. I can even go a whole day or night without it ringing. It is just one phantom ring every once in a while. I do not have any of those extra caller ID or voice mail type services. I cannot find a solution in the manual. Is there a way I can make it stop?
These DECT 6.0 phones work on 1.9 Ghz frequency and should not have any interference other than from another DECT 6.0 phone that can be within 150 ft of your phone. That means that somebody, a neighbor that has a DECT 6.0 phone close by is causing this problem. It also means that they are also getting these phantom phone rings. The best solution? Go to a 5.8 Ghz phone and your problem should go away.

The problem may be a short on your line. (Have the local Teleco check your line.) If you have other phones, you may want to check them for dial tone(DT) when this happens. If you have no DT, your cordless may be the problem...unplug, and let charge overnight. If problem continues, replace the battery in cordless, or discontinue use.

Try unplugging all sets and call in. Do you still have a faxlike tone, like from an ALARM system or something else down the street?

Your model is a phone only, without an answering machine built in. This means that voicemail is provided by your phone service on your line, and that's where you need to adjust the rings before it picks up. The phone itself has nothing to do with it.
You may have to call your service provider for setup instructions because not all systems are the same, but here's how it usually works. Pick up your phone and call your own number to reach your voicemail. When your message starts, press the * button and the system will ask for your pass code (just like when you call to get your messages). Follow the voice prompts to reach the main menu, then mailbox settings, where you'll be able to change the ring count.
If these steps don't work for you, ask your service provider what you need to do.
