    Same problem. Out of range/ call cuts off even within 1 foot of the base. E-mailed uniden with problem. Two days later they closed the problem with the phone number for customer service. I had called customer service - the message recommended emailing the question. Very dissatified with this run- a- round. Since it came in a plastic wrap that had to be distroyed to open, not sure it can be returned.

    We have the same problem. Our Uniden DECT 6 cuts out in the middle of a conversation and says something like 'signal lost.' It happens right in front of the base. This has happened to us numerous times. We've owned the phone for approx. 1 1/2 weeks and are seriously thinking about returning it. Also, we programmed in certain phone numbers, and set different rings for particular numbers, as well as, colors for those numbers. The instructions say that when the phone rings, it will search the phonebook and the controls we set will then take affect...guess, what? After numerous attempts, we found that this feature does not work. I called Uniden, but it was a few days after Hurrican Ike went through. I still haven't been able to reach them.

    Every time I use the phone for longer than 5 minutes I get handset out of range and I'm right next to the base (2 foot max) and then the call is dropped. It has been happening since I bought them 6 weeks ago. Any solutions?

    This is not a very cheap system, we've had it fr about 1 1/2 months and are very dis-satisfied! Has anyone gotten any solutions!

    Intermittently, calls get cut off with "out of range" message. Seems to occur randomly. Must return phone to cradle.

    We have had the Uniden DECT 6.0 2080 for about 1 week and for no apparent reason it will drop a call. Range from the base doesn't seem to matter. Never had a lick of problems with the old Uniden 5.8 ghz phones but the batteries were getting weak and we got this new phone on sale for the price of new batteries for the old phones. Maybe it's not such a bargain after all.

Buy the version with two hand sets so when one is out of range you can quickly click the other phone on, pretty crappy solution =) but it will work until i can return the phone.....

I keep the base and charger less than 2 feet from me, not a very good range for a phone.

I like the look of it, but also noticed if you stand it up on end its weird shapped and wont stand up =(.

I have the phone and it SUCKS BAD..same issues..Otta range, dropped calls, Piece of Uniden garbage, I should have bought Vtech instead

Posted on Sep 23, 2008


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.

If by "sync a handset" you mean register a handset so it works with the base, then yes. It doesn't even need to be the same model. The manual gives instructions for registering a handset to work with the base. If you need a manual, select the model of your Uniden DECT 6.0 phone from the list beginning at .

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 user manual for a UNIDEN DECT 6.0 cordless phone

Which model Uniden phone? There are a number of DECT 6.0 phones, Uniden has most of their manuals available on their support site: . The DECT phone manuals are here: . The phones are listed in numerical and alphabetical order (so check the later pages if your phone's model number starts with DECT). Ignore the number after the dash in the model number, that indicates the number of handsets sold with a given base. The manual is the same for a specific base phone.

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with your model number, I will be glad to help you find your specific model.

Phone keeps cutting out in middle of conversation

You need to ensure that the batteries are fully charged. On the handset while talking, the phone should show how much battery charge is left.
The other thing to check is how far are you from the phone base. For example if your base is on the first floor and you are on the third floor using the handset, then you might loose the signal clarity and eventually loose the connection to the base. To ensure that you are getting enough signal on all the floor, you can purchase a range externder from the manufacturer of your phone.

Searching and out of range message keep appearing. Can't dial out or receive calls Uniden Dect 6.0 (both phones) Tried to register base but unsuccessful.


This is because of the following reasons

1.The handset is far away from the base unit.Try to bring the hand set near the base unit and try.
2.The base unit is not plugged in to the power supply.Please check it.

My phone cuts off laptop wireless

Wifi typically operates in the 2.412Ghz - 2.472 Ghz depending on the channel selected. ideally the Wifi modem/router and the DECT phone should be operating in completely different bandwidths.

If your DECT phone is cutting off your Wifi wireless connection, then they must me operating in similar/same range: you need to change either your Wifi or DECT frequency 'channel' to minimize this interference.
Also make sure that there is a least 3 meters between the DECT base station and your Wifi modem/router to eliminate Transceivers static RF/EMF interference.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

GE dect 6.0 cordless phone bought at walmart

We had the same problem.

"Our phones worked fine for two weeks but now you can not dial out
and when someone calls us they can't hear we say. The line still works
fine with our old phone1.gif."

To fix the problem, I simply unplugged the base AC plug from the outlet, waited about 15 seconds, and then plugged it back in. Both handsets said searching on the display and then handset names returned to the display as originally programmed. The phones returned to operation as normal.
