While talking, handset randomly stops working and displays the message: move closer to base. It won't work even if you are standing next to the base. Then it may work again, only to repeat the same scenario.

We have a Panasonic that is starting to go stupid. After 4 or 5 years, with a fully charged battery we register it but it only stays registered for about a day or two. If yours is acting the same way, well cordless phones aren't that expensive anymore.
the get closer to base message displays when you are too far from the phone's docking station. It could be as simple as replacing the battery with a new one from radio shack or such electronic places. But then again I don't know if it was damaged, dropped, or got wet, so this is my most reasonable solution.
You can change the channel used by the phone in the settings, but the better option is to make sure the charger base is nowhere near the microware.
Also, make sure that the microwave and the charger base are NOT plugged into the same outlet. I would even try a different outlet than you are using now as interference would definitely pass through the line.
Press MENU, scroll down to INITIAL SETTINGS (press select), scroll down to REGISTRATION (press select), then select HS REGISTRATION, and follow the instructions on the handset screen. This is for the KX-TG6071B, but is similar for most Panasonic Cordless phones. That will link the handset to the base, and YOU MUST DO IT WITH EACH HANDSET.
Your getting this message because the radio portion of the handset or/and base is not communicating with each other. This can be temporary or fatal. You can try re-registering the handset(s) to the base by following the directions in the manual, its fairly easy to do for any model. If that does not work,and you have more than one handset not working with this problem, then it sounds as if your base needs repair or replacing.
Astoundingly, the KXTG2357 works only with the original handsets it came
with! You cannot replace a handset by buying another one (same model,
of course) and register it with the base. How ridiculous is that? It's
like buying a lamp that works only with the bulb that came with it.
Replacement bulbs won't work. Well, Panasonic is one company I won't be
dealing with anymore!
So, the solution is to get along with one less handset, or buy a new phone unit!
