When the base and handset stop talking to each other, it is generally because of a power interruption. Modern cordless phones transmit a security code from handset to base, when you start a call. This helps reduce the likelihood that you and your neighbor will be talking over each other, if your phones are on the same channel. If they get out of sync, usually the phone will just beep "out of range."

  • To reset the chip which holds the security code:

    1. Place the phone back in the cradle for a slow five count. Then, pick it up and try it. If it works, you are done. If not, go to step 2.

    2. Unplug the telephone's base unit. Slide the battery cover off the handset, and remove the battery. Wait 30 seconds or so. Plug the base unit back in. Wait five seconds or so. Replace the battery in the handset. Place the handset in the base unit for a slow five count (as above). Now try it. This will almost always solve the problem.

    If this does not work, it may mean that the chip which holds your security code is now defunct and needs to be serviced. *

  • Clean the battery contacts in case the battery is not getting charged. Clean the charging contacts on your base unit with a pencil eraser. This gives just enough abrasion to rub off any oxidation, without impairing the chromed surface of the contacts.

  • If the battery is new and you are still experiencing problems, the phone will need to be services. Contact your authorized Service Center. *

Call withheld why?

Your home landline may block the caller ID on its own? Perhaps this is a setting on your phone or from your provider. Try calling another phone?

My E65 phone wont send sms but i can make a call and also recieve sms and calls...i wanna solution

The only way to fix this is by calling your service provider. It is a problem with the net work not your phone. You could try just taking the battery out of the phone and starting it back up and see if that fixes the problem otherwise you have to call your service provider. Sorry your having so much trouble!

Paired Blackberry Curve 8310 w/Range Rover 2005 drops calls

Ok, this isn't so much a solution as a work around.

As long as your phone is still holding the call (showing connected), once the Range Rover drops the call, hit the soft button that shows a picture of a green phone if you were making a call. This will cause the Range Rover to reconnect the speakrs/mike to the phone, and you can continue your call in relative harmony.

I still haven't figured out how to get out of the jam when a second call comes in while you are still on the first....

Good Luck
