Question about Uniden Cordless Phone

Rain drops falling on my phone

One of my remote phones was left outside in the rain. even though it was damp I was able to make calls and even received calls. However within a couple of hrs the phone went dead. switched the battery with another remote but the rain phone still didn't work. the other phone with the rain battery did work so its not a battery problem. reassembled the rain phone and put it back in its cradle for 3 days by now and it still dosn't work. you think the phone can be repaired or should I buy a replacement?

My God, you should have gotten a blow dryer immediately and dried the circuits. Not a hot heat, but a steady heat clean clear through. it has worked every time I dropped the phone in the toilet or the dishwater.

    Depends on how long you took to get to it. Plus you made calls when it was damp. That damages circuits. Imagine puttin water on a light bulb If you, then, left it damp for thosE two hours instead of insuring total dryness - IT'S DEAD!

    You have got to get to it immediately or more sooner than later to insure your circuit survival. And, of course, if you did not thoroughly dry it - well , you know, Oh yeah, and it the heat was took hot, then, you know.

    You unit is fried and there is nothing you can do about it now.

    By the way, it can become a battery problem, because a friend of mine kept his phone in his pocket and body moisture killed his phone. It swelled the battery and killed the phone.

    Know this doesn't help get the use of your phones back.

I have a lucent Partner 18d telephone. I want to be able to have a button programmed so that the secretary can transfer incoming calls to outside phones ( call comes in, secretary presses a button, dials...

That is not possible on the Partner ACS. The oONLY thing that would be close to what you want is Remote Call Forward.

As long as you have a Partner ACS release 6 or higher,

You need to set the permissions on a phone, then set that phone to forward out to teh external number. Then when calls come in, you transfer to that phone, which will forward to a cell or external number....boom, done!

Thats it though.

My landline phone won't ring, but I can get and make calls!!

My experience with an old (100+) and newer house is that it is important to make sure your telephone wires coming into the house, and the junction block where all the wires connect, stay clean and dry. If the wires can get damp or dirty, then when that 90 volts of ringing voltage come down the line, it may find a low impedance path. At my old house I had to make sure the outside wires didn't touch the ground or get damp. In my newer house, I discovered the wiring block was near a dryer vent where it got a ton of fuzz on it, plus the moisture, so eventually our phones stopped ringing even though we could make calls and our DSL was not affected. When we exposed and cleaned up the wiring block so that the phone company tech could re-visit us to troubleshoot things, suddenly it started working again.

Left outside in the rain

This phone is out of production. You could buy a used system (Amazon) for about $60. You'll have to weight the cost against perhaps a newer system.

When it rain. Our phone started to mess up. We can't call nobody and nobody can't call us.

Report the problem to 611 or your telephone repair vendor, sounds like a bad cable either in your house or outside before the line gets to your house. Good Luck.
