Question about Vtech ia5823 Cordless Phone

Problem when dialing phone

I have a 2 handset Uniden phone system and a vTech ia5823. Recently (within the last few weeks) the vTech has started acting funny. Sometimes it doesn't ring at all, sometimes it rings "late". Lately it won't let me dial out. I begin dialing the phone number (area code first) and before I finish dialing the exchange I hear the message from the phone company "We're sorry. Your call cannot be completed as dialed..." I can immediately pick up one of the Uniden handsets and dial the same number (at the same speed) and it will work fine. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Yes, I have had nothing but trouble with my V-Tech ia5823.
Slow to dial, dropping out going calls and now the base light is flashing at a rapid pace and will not charge the handset.
I want to return it to Wal-Mart but have misplaced the recepit.
I will never buy another V-Tech..Uniden is the way to go!

You have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

How do you setup voice mail on vtech model #ia5823 an retrieve messages


The IA5823 is not an answering machine. It will work with most telephone service providers' voice mail systems. You'll need to refer to the instructions from your service provider.

If you still have problems, please repost your question specifying your telephone service provider and if possible the name of the voice mail system.

About a week ago we purchased a new cordless phone with a second handset for upstairs. It is a Uniden Dect 6.0. Without warning the 2nd handset's buttons ceased to function. It still receives signal but...


Try putting the 2nd handset in the base station for a few minutes. Sometimes this helps it reset.
Alternatively, just switch the handsets and see if that works.

Uniden 1725 no dial tone


I had the same problem as long as they are plugged in correctly and you put the #2 handset into the #1 cradle to register it to your base then try hanging the phone up several times. These are expandable phones so that I believe you can keep adding other handsets. So sometimes they think you have a few more handsets than you really have so when you hang up it may not know what handset you are hanging up #1 #2 or #3 #4 etc. So I had to keep hanging them up until it finally hung up. Then I had to re install them so it knew I only had 2 hand sets. So then you start from the beginning, like when you took it from the packaging. I hate these phones. I ended up replacing them with different ones. Plus I always keep a rotery phone laying around put away because during a power outage you still can plug in an old dial phone and it will work! Nothing like old technology.

Message light is blinking


call your new service provider and they will ask you a few questions to make sure it is the owner of the account.... then they will give you the pin number... i would suggest changing it to something you are familiar with the first time you access it.

It sounds like the dial pad has built up carbon on the circuit board. If possible, disassemble the handset, and clean the circuit board below the dial pad with alcohol. Denatured alcohol works best.
also, clean the back of the dial pad itself.

Vtech M6896 phones do not work


Step 1: Press and hold FIND HANDSET on the main telephone base for 10 seconds.

Step 2: When the IN USE light starts to flash, release the FIND HANDSET button.

Step 3: Press and release FIND HANDSET again. The IN USE light will turn off and in a few seconds, all handsets will be de-registered.

Step 4: All handsets will show NOT REGISTERED.

To register a handset (register 1 handset at a time):
Step 1: Place the handset in the base unit or a charger that is connected to a power outlet. If PRESS FIND HNDST 4 SEC ON BASE does not appear on the screen after a few seconds, lift up handset and place in base or charger again.

Step 2: On the telephone base, press and hold FIND HANDSET for four seconds. Release FIND HANDSET once the IN USE light comes on.

After a while the handset will emit a series of tones, the newly registered handset will be assigned the lowest extension number not previously assigned to another system handset (1-4) when successfully registered. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 if the handset does not successfully register to the telephone base within two minutes.
