Same thing was happening to my phone...Welcome! Please wait... After at least 40 hours of charging I was getting a little fed up. I picked up the handset, took a ball point pen and pushed the "activation" area on the bottom the phone...heard a click...now it is working. I don't think the tiny pin that comes with the phone activates the phone properly.

Thank you for posting this, I was having the same problem and the pen worked. You need to write to Uniden and ask for a reward, if they don't note that in their phones they are going to get a bunch of these returned.

When a handset is reading "Searching", it can't communicate with the base. First, check if the base station is plugged into a live outlet. (Try plugging the base into a different outlet or making sure that the circuit breaker hasn't popped. I had a cordless phone base plugged into a UPS. During an extended power outage, the UPS was turned off. The phone didn't work until someone noticed and turned the UPS back on.) Move closer to the base station.

If this was an extra handset purchased later, make sure it is compatible with the base station. The Uniden DWX207 works with the DECT1500, DECT2000 and DECT3000 series bases. Register the handset with the base. The registration procedure depends on the base station. If the base unit has an LCD screen, with the phone in standby, press Menu/Select and press the down arrow to reach "Register Handset". Then press Menu Select again. (If the base doesn't have an LCD screen, unplug the power cord. Then hold the Find HS or Find button as you reconnect the power cord until the Charge/In Use light starts to blink.) Then press the # key on the handset before the registration period ends.

Make sure that you haven't exceeded the number of handsets for your base. You may need to de-register all handsets and then re-register them.

If no handsets will pair with the base, replace the base unit. The transmitter or the receiver aren't communicating properly with the handsets.

I hope this helps.

HEY, Just got DWX207 and it's not working. It's been charging for 48 hrs. and when you pick it up off base it is dead. I did push in the button on base firts. On base it flashes Welcome Please Wait


When you got it do you take the back off to make sure the battery is plugged into the phone? if yes! the phone clearly has a manufacture defect and should be returned.

I have lost my manual and i dont know how to record a personal message on my answering machine and how to enter the code to retrieve my messages from another phone.


From your handset, you just have to press the mute button, your phone should start telling you the time, date, ect. press the #5 key and then the #8 key and start recording your message. When finished press the # 8 key again. Hope this helps

My uniden waterproof phone does not charge.


Make sure charging indicator showing charge, if so! the battery will need to be replaced, try and get the genuine replacement because there have been problems reported with aftermarket batteries not working in the phones due to the specifications not matching the genuine product.

How do I set the date and time on my DWX207


You can press the [Menu/Select] button to enter the configuration settings. Look for Global settings or Date/Time. Unfold all options to find date/Time. If you cannot find that option, you must set it on the base to which it is registered. This just an accessory handset, and it does not have all possible configuration settings.

Redistration to other brand DECT 6.0 base failed.


DECT 6.0 IS JUST A MARKET NAME FOR DIFFERENT BRANDS, THE WATERPROOF DWX207 WILL ONLY WORK WITH UNIDEN PHONES, ONLY BECAUSE YOU WANT THEM TO WORK TOGETHER DOES NOT MEAN THEY WILL WORK TOGETHER...

Low battery in Uniden cordless phone.


Unless you have one of the water proof phones, hold the handset with the keypad facing your palm, and the top facing your body. Press very firmly at the endention on the battery cover pushing it in a little and down at the same time. Sometimes they are pretty tight but it should come off with a little effort. If it is a waterproof phone, there are four small screws at the corners of the battery cover that will need to come out before the cover will come off, be very carefull as the screw heads are fairly easy to strip and if that happens it is almost impossible to put it back together and still have it waterproof.
