Re: phone not connecting

I am having the same problem. Had it last year, too but bought new batteries for all the handsets and that fixed the problem. However, this year I can't find the batteries anywhere!

Re: phone not connecting

I find that unplugging the base unit power for about 20 seconds, then replugging it, usually clears this problem.

My vtech digital 6.0 cordless phone says not registered but when someone calles the base of the phone still rings and people are able to leave messages but the actual phone isnt ringing, how can i fix it?

The base and the handset are not communicating. To have them do so, you need to "register" the handset with the base. Since you neglected to specify the model of your VTech DECT 6.0 phone I can't tell you how to do that. I can suggest you enter the model number into the search box here to download a copy of the manual. The manual will give you instructions on how to register the handset.

My Phone will not connect to the base unit...

My handset displays CONNECTING...
Move the handset closer to the telephone base. You might have moved out of range.

This is what was listed in the Vtech Manual.

What I suggest is not just powering it off, but remove battery and wait a couple of minutes. Put battery back in and try it. The other thing I suggest is a new battery or switching it temporarily with a phone that works, to see if that helps before you buy a new one. If the battery is weak it will have trouble reaching the base.
