Question about Vtech 9009111 Cordless Phone
Had my phones for 3 years now, and never had a problem...until we unplugged the entire phone system to switch it to another room, and now none of my phones work. they all say "enter base id." i went to vtech website, downloaded the manual for my model 6773, and it said nothing about a base id. their only solution was to unplug the base, take out all the batteries and then replace them...which, didn't work. does anyone know what or where i can find my base id???
SOURCE: can put in base id
Did you try this (from the i5801 manual) -
To register a handset to the base, follow these steps:
Step 1: If ENTER BASE ID is displayed on the handset, proceed to the next step; if not, press MENU on the handset, then press ▼ until REGISTER is highlighted; now press OK.
Step 2: Locate the 15-digit Base ID number by pressing, at the base: MENU, then press ▼ until DISPLAY BASE-ID is highlighted, then press OK.
Step 3: Carefully enter this number using the handset dialpad. If you make a mistake, press ‹ to backspace. When finished, press OK.
In a few moments, the handset will be assigned a number (1-6). This will be the lowest available number in the sequence not previously assigned to another system handset.
Step 4: Repeat the procedure for any other unregistered system handsets.
Reply back if you have success. The Base ID is not from the bottom of the base unit, but is something you get by following Step 2 above.

It sounds like you are trying to register the handset(s) to the base. Once the handset is
charged, if you see 'Searching for Base' on the display,(The bold is for your question specifically but I thought you may like all of the information for getting a phone hooked up) ON the Base unit
press MENU, scroll down to Display Base ID, press OK, and the Base ID
code will display. If NEW appears in your handset display, press the
soft key under it and enter the base ID code you found in the base
display. If 'New' does not appear on your handset, press MENU and then
scroll down to REGISTER. Press OK and then enter the base ID code. If
the handset is already registered, please deregister all then register
again. To deregister a handset which is registered to the base model
20-2431, Using the soft keys on the base, press the 'MENU', then press
the down arrow once until 'SETUP BASE' is highlighted. Press 'OK'.
Press the down arrow 6 times, until 'DEREGISTER ALL' is highlighted.
Press 'SET' . If your handset is registered to the base model 20-2481,
Using the soft keys on the base, press the 'MENU', then press the down
arrow twice until 'SETUP BASE' is highlighted. Press 'OK'. Press the
down arrow 7 times, until 'DEREGISTER ALL' is highlighted. Press 'SET'.

You don't have to key in the ID, just put the phone back into the charging cradle of the base unit. It will then re-sync itself to your base unit's ID.
