Phone works fine for awhile, pick it up and there's no dialtone. I have to take out the battery and reinstall. Works again for a few more hours. I have to reset the battery several times throughout the day.
Another fix is to register the phone again. I do not have to de-register it first. Also, be patient. Sometimes when I take the handset from the base it searches for the base. If I push the talk button before it finishes searches, it beeps. Once it has found the base, it is ready to go. I have Verizon voice mail and it seems that when I have a message waiting it causes the phone to de-register.
I finally find a way to stop this problem from occuring : never leave your phone on the charger with the battery isnt empty !
I know this sucks because what best place to put your phone at night than its base. But try it and it will work (unless your battery is already damaged). In the morning when i go to work, I charge it for 8 hours, then when I come back, I take it off the charge until next morning.

My phone is making a lot of noise and static on in coming call so bad I can't talk. out going I can't make. I put in the number to dial call does not go through ,but I can hear the dial tone. do I need a new battery or is there something wrong with the phone itself.
Unfortunatly you will need to send it for a repair or purchase a new one. You might have a deffective transistor or such.
Contacts on this electronic devices are thiner then hair. Simple shake or higher current then usual can cause all types of failures.
Your question is similar to a question of why people die....
Hi zappawo, This is impossible with the Philips VOIP321. A design flaw. You have to live with it or buy another one, like the GE/Thomson GE21878. I bought the GE with this question in mind. The GE does take over the calls from the screen to the handset. As it should be. Best regards, Fred [email protected]
Hi. I just bought one of these phones and wanted more information than what the manual offered, so I went to the GE website to see what they had. Below I put what I found, maybe it can help you. Click on the blue box that towards the bottom left for the manual for download.
After the link, I also put extra information tabout this phone that helped me find the manual for you- it wasnt easy to find. OK, best of luck.

I contacted GE today and they told me how to get the caller ID to work on the additional handsets. You must follow these steps in the exact order given.
#1 - unplug the base phone
#2 - unplug the telephone line from the base phone
#3 - remove the battery packs from the phones
#4 - wait 10 minutes.
reverse the order when assembling. Put battery packs in phones, put the telephone line back in the base phone and lastly plug all phones back in. It takes about another 10 minutes after that before all phones start recognizing caller ID but it now works fine.
