To register a handset, simply place the handset in the main base unit. You'll the main ans mach bases on for both sets to do this.

Jill,
The only logical way is to get the additional handsets to communicate with the base. And to do that you must set them to the frequency of the base. You Use guide will tell you how to set the frequency n the handsets to talk to the base. They way you set the original ones.
BUT, I doubt if this will work. Why? Because if that was the case if you and I had the same company phones, then I would stand outside your home and set the same frequency on my handset and misuse your phone. A great security risk in today's world. But there is no harm trying it out. Just set the same frequency on the additional ones as the base. If it works, then you will have that many more intercoms too. And do let me know if it works.

I have a Uniden Cellink D1780-3BT system with 3 working handsets. I want to add Uniden DECT 6.0 D1780-3 handsets.


you will not be able to do this as they are two totally different machines with totally different operations although the 1780- appears the same it is the celllink and dect that makes the difference
you can however add as many hand sets of the same model as you wish to the same model
it has to do with updated circuitry required by the telecommunications department to operate on the system

DECT 1480-4 Uniden Corless phone- how do you get rid of red LED lite ?


Do you mean the status light on the handset or the one on the base? The status light on the base will be on if the answering system is on. The handset status light will be on but steady when the handset is on the charger. (It's a battery charging indicator in that case; take the handset off the charger to stop the charging system. It provides a trickle charge to offset the battery discharging over time) The light blinks to indicate new messages are available on the answering system. Press the Play button on the base or the Messages/Mute button on the handset to play new messages.

Uniden offers the manuals for many of their phones on their support site: http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl . The direct link to the manual for the DECT-1480 is http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/DECT1480-2om.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Lost the manual and tried to look it up but model number is not on the List. DECT1480-3. Trying to make the volumn higher when taking to people can hardly hear them and need to set up my answering system.


You can download the manual from the manufacturer's web site at
http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/DECT1480-2om.pdf

The only difference between the 1480-2 and the 1480-3 is that the -3 has one additional handset. Operationally they're identical.

I need a manual for Uniden DECT 6.0 product name DECT 1480-8 model # BM 40092294


The manual is the same for all DECT1480 phones; the digit after the dash indicates the number of handsets that came with the phone initially.

The English version of the manual for the DECT 1480 is here http://www.uniden.com/pdf/DECT1480-3om.pdf . This is a 2 accessory handset version. A complete list of the available Uniden DECT cordless phone manuals is here: http://www.uniden.com/index/manuals_results.cfm?cat=59 .

I hope this helps.

I have Uniden DECT1480-3. I purchased two expandable handsets, but I cannot figure out how to get the new handsets to register with the base unit.


Up to 6 handsets can be registered with the DECT 1480 phones. I have the 5 phone unit and needed to add the 6th phone. All I got was "Searching" in the display and the battery wouldn't even charge!

So here's what you have to do to get additional phones (up to 6 units) to work with the base. If you can get past step 1, it's a snap...

Step 1: Place a charged battery in the handset. This could be a problem if all your handsets are not registered, since unregistered phones don't charge (who thought of that design?). What I did was SWAP the battery from an already registered and charged phone with the new unregistered phone.

Step 2: Here's where the magic happens. Press the 'END' and '#' keys simultaneously... hold them down until a System Reset menu appears. Select "Deregister HS" and press Menu.

Step 3: Now, do the same thing again (hold down END and #), but this time select Base Unavailable and press Menu. You will see Base Unavailable Yes/No... Select Yes. Then place the handset in the base, wait a few seconds, and Voila!. it's registered. You can even change handset numbers using this menu if you play around with it.

Thank you, helpful employee at Costco for supplying the magic code. And hey there, UNIDEN... including this in the operation manual would have saved many customers much grief with de-registered phones!

Enjoy!
