What likely happened is the base unit un registered the handset(s).
But you said no lights, which I take to mean no display on the handset. They will turn on and show no service if they will turn on at all. Assuming your charger is good, you likely have two bad batteries. If still no turn on indication, get one new battery and try that. Did the handset or charger get really wet EVER? Those handsets will have corrosion inside that spreads slowly. That will stop those handsets every time. The batteries when they go bad, they go quickly and will not power the phone at all.
There are few dealers that work on these. We do and EnGenius does. They charge a flat rate.

Your iPod seems to be pretty dated - like 4 years old. A usual iPod only lasts for about 1 - 2 years - so bravo for making it last 4!
What seems to be the case is that your iPod probably has a dead battery so you can choose to do either of the following:
  1. Go to the Apple Store and ask for a repair on the iPod.
  2. Go to the Apple Store with your old iPod and purchase a new one. Mention to them that you are willing to give up your old one, and you will get 10% off of the price.

Most repairs only carry a 30-day warranty. After that the monitor is subject to going out at any time. Then again, if the repair is done correctly, it could last for years. Check the cost of repair against the cost of a replacement monitor. Prices have come down drastically in the last 2-3 years, and you can pick up some real bargains. I just purchased an as-new 21-inch LCD for for $86 on eBay.

Free codes will not work... There are only 3 options to Unlock BB5 phones. Trying free codes will only waste your time and stop you from unlocking the phone in the future as you only have 3 attempts to enter the code. 1, Purchase unlock code from your original network, e.g Orange (usually £20) 2, Purchase professional equipment (not cheap) such as MTBox with BB5 NO TP activated and unlock the phone yourself 3, Take it to a decent phone shop and have them unlocked using pro equipment... Average cost about £10 2 & 3 are only possible if you have older 6300 handsets version 7.26 and above are currently impossible to unlock using any known unlocking equipment only the correct network code will unlock them, check your version by typing *#0000#

When i send a message atonce it gives the response "message sending failed." message is not sending from my mobile phones. please provide me solution to solve this problem.

Delete messages in sent items.It should work now..... If not make sure that message centr no. is the right one. Contact customer care if u dont know message centr no. If problem persists, use some other handset and try sending message.If message sending fails in other handsets too then priblem is related to SIM or network.Complain to the customer care.Wait for their response.If the network is OK,then the last option is to apply for replacement with a  new SIM .!!!

Panasonic KX-TG9341 (purchased 9/10/08)

I believe the problem is not the handset phone but the telephone line because the phones were working for a brief period again last night. As I said, ATT is supposed to send a repair man out today to check the lines. If the repair man says the problem is not the telephone line, I may contact you again. Thanks/
