Question about Uniden DECT 6.0 Cordless Telephone Expansion Handset

Open Question

In the middle of the call my phone will say "out of range" when I'm near the base

I have a brand new Uniden Dect 3080 Series phone. It runs on the 1.9Ghz band, and should not receive interference in my house from my wireless macbook pro, or my bluetooth devices.

Periodically during a call, when I am within 30' of the base, it will stop communicating with the base and say "out of range" on the screen. Walking right up to the base does not reconnect the call right away. Suddenly the call is "dropped" to my caller, and they hang up.

I have been unable to find a solution. My phone base is in the kitchen 10' from the nearest appliance, and not near any other wireless units for 20'

I have an apple wireless mouse, and a cell phone, but I cannot connect consistent interference problems to their concurrent use.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Just got ours in 2 weeks ago. Bought this to replace our aging 5.8 Uniden phones which have been fine for 3 years. Our new 3080 system is doing the exact same thing. :( Out of range, even in the same room as the base.

    cuts of in the middle of the conversation, even in front of the base.

    Does anyone have a solution to this? It is so annoying! And still have not heard back from Uniden!

    My call gets dropped and the screen says: out of range. I'm standing right next to the base! How can that be?

SOURCE: My uniden DECT 6.0 phone is picking up interference

Hi Phoneless,
Normally TWO NOISE FILTERS comes with net packs (modems and netlines instalations from the companies by default). One of them, we swich to the phone line, separating Data and Audio tranfers. [the outside cable goes directly to the router and the filter is connected between the box in the wall and the phone cable(preferred one), or between the cable and the phone].
If you don't have it, ask to a Phone Company, that's is real chip and helps a lot to whom shares phone and internet in one line [ ...as me too...beside...as almost everybody :-) ]

SOURCE: cant register/install a new dect 6.0 uniden 2060 phone

I had a similar problem which I finally fixed. You did not say if any of your phones registered.
First try the following recommended by Uniden Support:
Your phone(s) should be fully charged before putting them on the main base.
Unplug the battery from the phone by removing the battery cover and removing the connector. Then, push the # and * key together and hold while you plug the battery back in (requires some dexterity). Continue to hold the two keys until you hear a confirmation tone. This will force the phone to reregister. Put the phone on the main base (if you are sure it has a fully charged battery) and see if it will reregister it to solve the problem.
That did not work for me. So, I followed the instructions to de-register the handset (even though it hadn't really registered). But, I also pretended like the Base was not available (because using the base in this step also failed).
1) Press and hold the hang up and # keys for at least 5 seconds.
2) Move the cursor to select Base Unavailable and then press Select.
3) Select the base you want to deregister from, press Select and then move the cursor to Yes and select.
This causes the phone to delete any of its base information.
At this point, again insure that your phone shows the battery is fully charged and if it is not, put it on the stand alone charger base (not the main base). With the battery fully charged, place it on the base and try registering again by placing it in the main base.
If neither of these approaches help, contact support at Uniden.com.
However, my problems were cleared when I cleared the handset with the second set of instructions.

SOURCE: Static interference on Uniden 5.8Ghz phone

i have a uniden 5.8 ghz cordeless and thought it was a piece of junk as well. I had static or lapse of audio near the router, the kitchen sink, the microwave (even when off) and in the doorway. I switched the frequency on the router and changed the channels on the phones all with no luck. Short of steering clear of my entire downstairs nothing worked.

Just about ready to buy a new phone and hit up google. Saw a posting that said to keep the base away from even the tv. . .hmmm this is exactly where mine was located. So I swapped the digital answering machine base and moved it downstairs and put the additional base near my flat screen. Guess what? Problem SOLVED! I still cannot believe it.

Hope this helps

Try placing the handset in the base unit to register it. Then see if it is found by the base.

Uniden dect 6-0 says its out of range but its by the base


Make sure the handset is registered to the base. Since you didn't specify the model of your Uniden DECT 6.0 system I can only suggest you select it from the list beginning here to download a copy of the manual.

I need a manual for a DECT 3080-3


Do you mean the Uniden DECT3080-3? Uniden has the manuals for most of their phones on their support site or the product page. Manuals for the DECT phones start here: http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl . The phones are listed in numerical and alphabetical order. Ignore the number after the dash in the phone name, that only indicates the number of handsets in the bundle when sold. One manual covers all bundles of the same model. The DECT3080 manual in English is available here: http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/DECT3080-2om.pdf .

I hope this helps.

2.The base unit is not plugged in to the power supply.Please check it.

Uniden dect 6.00


handset dies or cuts off frequently during calls or when talk is pressed to answer even when fully charged and right in front of the base unit. Beyond frustrating.
If I hadn't lost the reciept, I'd return this useless phone in an instant.
