Question about AT&T 2.4 GHz 2255 Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Phone Installation - Out Of Service

My parents have a set of AT&T 2.4 GHZ 2255 Cordless phones with one handset on the base and a remote handset. These were working at one time, but the base got unplugged for an extended period of time and now both handsets are showing "Out Of Service". They don't have any documentation for installing. I know that the handsets have to search for the signal on the base but I don't know how. Can you offer any help? Thanks

    I have the same basic problem. I cannot get the base to recognize one of the handsets. I have tried ti re-initialize several times with the operating handset active and inactive but still have been unable to get past the "Out of Service' message on the other one.The batteries are all fully charged and the unit works fine with the one handset. I've tried handsets from another unit with the same result. Any help would be appreciated.

    Caller ID does not show up. AT&T service lineman's phone shows Caller ID just fine on his set, but
    CL83451 does not show on either Base unit or handsets.
    Just "Incoming Call"

Find the manual on the link below. Check batteries are charged preferably for a few hours then perform the reset as per the manual: To re-initialize the handset and base: 1 Disconnect the power to the base. 2 Remove the handset battery pack. 3 Wait at least 15 seconds. 4 Insert the handset battery pack. 5 Connect the power to the base. 6 Put the handset in the base to re-initialize. 7 Wait for handset to display READY (or handset name). http://telephones.att.com/docMgt/public/art/306/2255_.pdf

Set the phone on the charging cradle and press the ON button while phone is in crade. You may need to use the speakerphone button to do this. Turning the phone on while in the charging cradle will resync your handset with its base. Try it! It should work!

Can't talk on both phone at same time. second on is always dead.


The DXI4286-2 is an Analog phone, it does not allow for both handset to be used at the same time. You can transfer a call from one handset to another, but cannot talk on both at the same time.
The following is from the user's manual for your phone:

Unavailable message is displayed
on the LCD screen of the
handset.
• Make sure the other handset is not already in use. Both handsets cannot be in talk mode at the
same time.
• Place the handset in the main base for at least 5 seconds to re-register to the main base.
• Make sure the handset is not too far from the main base when trying to use.

You might want to try one of the DECT or a Digital 2.4 or 5.8 GHz phones, they allow you to use multiple handsets at the same time.

OUT OF SERVICE MESSAGE


Hi J,

Apparently that one from Ebay looks nice but has issues (not uncommon). If you took it out of the box, charged it fully and its has garbled audio, then the handset or the base is defective, or both, but at least at this point you can get a handset to "communicate" with the base and the "in/use light turns on, when you try to access a line,correct? . If you get the "out of service" message when trying to "move" the "ebay" handset to the other base, it sounds as if the base station and handsets are "coded" and were married together at the factory and one handset won't interchange with anothers base. However, try this before you go the repair service route, or roll the dice with another fine product off EBay :). Unplug and power down both bases, the one from Ebay and your old one. Take the Ebay handset and set it in the charging cradle of your old base. Power up and wait three minutes. Plug dial tone in and give it a try. If it still says "no service" , and won't light the "in/use" light when you try to use it then it won't work with your base, or/and your old handset you lost is somewhere near and is still communicating with its base. Now if you lost your handset weeks ago, then the odds that it is still alive are pretty slim. But I have heard handsets in the warehouse beep for days til their battery dies. You can google cordess telephone repair for service. Good Luck. CG

Brand new cordless handset -- no dial tone, no ring!


I doubt it's the battery. As I understand it the base works fine and the problem is only with a cordless phone. Are you using an external charger stand for the cordless handset? These phones need to be registered to the base unit. That is usually done by installing the cordless phone in the base unit but you may need to do that shortly after insalling the battery or you could have a register button or setting.
