Phone holds charge from 12-55 min. and then goes dead
I bought this Siements 4215 Gigaset two months ago--used. Had to buy new batteries recently and installed them less than a week ago. What's wrong with the phone that it won't hold a charge for nice long uninterrupted chats? My original phone gave me no problem in this area until the whole phone died--I'd had it for several years.

Re: Phone holds charge from 12-55 min. and then goes dead
Your handset or charger has gone bad (provided you installed rechargable batteries), or both. The previous user may have installed alkaline batteries (is their a white powdery residue in the the charge compartment?), and that can ruin the charge circuit. Either way, you probably need to contact repair. You can go to www.cordlessrepair.com

You need to make sure the phone is on the cradel half on half off is not the units fault its the users, in saying the the unit will charge the battery if you dod not kiill it already, leave the phone on the cradel if that does not charge the battery a nice day trip to radioshack for a new battery might be what you have to do, Sorry to hear you misfortuens with uniden there a good company but make things that people just do not understand.
I have similar problem with my gigaset 4000 micro, i bought 600mah NiMh bettery and when I start charging it charges cca 3 min and displays that battery is full and it doesnt charge it any more. I can speak max 12 minutes and phone starts beeping that battery is empty. What should i do to make phone to charge this battery properly.
Pick a handheld, press Menu - H/set settings - Reg Handset - Select Base 1, enter 0000 as password. Now on the bottom of the base station press and hold the Register button in for about 10 seconds or until the h/set beeps.
Caller ID in the USA uses the FSK standard. For the most part, caller ID in India uses DTMF (although I have heard of some FSK usage).
I am currently living in New Delhi and have an Airtel home phone line. My switch uses DTMF. I went to the Palika electronics bazaar (I aways use shop number 266 near gate 5, they seem to be a little kinder to foreigners as far as the "final price") and purchased an DTMF to FSK convertor. My US phones now show caller ID information, although using US number seperations ### - ### - ####. I paid R500 but you could probably get it for around R400 if you are willing to put in the time bargaining. It looks like they are also available on Indian Ebay.
Mine says UST001B. It looks like these are low volume items because they stuck the components into a box marked "DSL Splitter" It works to convert the caller ID as advertised.
