When I first switched to Packet 8 (now 8x8) I found out that my automatic time set would suddenly shift to 3 hours difference. The problem became difficult to find, because it was only one of 3 lines on my phone system. I came to find out that it was because the first call on my system after 2AM set the system time, and if it wasn't on the 8x8 line, it didn't change the time.

A quick call to 8x8 and they gave me the password to log into the 8x8 box to set the time zone to Eastern time.

Check with your dial tone provider or their web site and see if you can do the same with your unit.

some phones have a natural problem with this due to the electronics in the handset others may have a button that says channel or scan this will allow the handset to look for a stronger channel between it and the base most of the time that will cure the problem. if not hang up and try your call again it will allow the base to do the same thing and may clear the problem up. nether helps you may have a defective phone.

How to set up a voice mail indicator on vtechcs6219-2

Vtech Cordless... | 627 views | 0 helpful votes

Unplug the entire phone set system from both electrical power and wall jack for approx 2-3 minutes and replug.

It's a reset measure that allows the entire system to reset / reboot as well as stops any and all line feed memory from the live phone line to hold the fault.

Such can be somewhat common when sharing the line with a DSL connection or wireless router is in use.

This will only fix the phone temporarily.

plug it back in
and it should work for a while.

Look for "menu" on your hand set, scroll through. If your phone has the feature, it will be listed somewhere in the menu, I'm certain. It may be called 'locator' or 'beeper' or even 'find it'. Your set may allow intercom communication, if so, find that feature and call the missing hand set. I'm sure you looked for this already, but it bears repeating, look on the base set, is there a "locate it" button?

when you lift the handset from the cradle try pressing the line number button on the handset or answer button on the handset.

U see echoing isnt d problm f the phone... It`s the pbm of d service providers (yr network)....dnt worry they usually get repaired when the correspondn frequencies are altered.....

You possibly have a Mhz signal conflict with another appliance in your home or in another 'apartment' if you live in a complex.  If not, there is a similar or identical signal (with the same Mhz listed on your phone in your home from another appliance trying to use the same frequency) interfering, like a router or router/modem for wireless internet.  I had a similar problem when I had a wireless home phone not connecting to the base and would not call, stay connected or code right with the base.  I used a Linksys router to connect to an AT&T modem and nothing matched. Until I got AT&T to upgrade me to their "2wire" router/modem combination built in and my wireless internet problem was solved.  But, the V-Tech phone lost it's ability to connect or operate properly after that, even with a new battery.  We scrapped the wireless base and phone and now stay wired, also an option.

Had a G E cordless with the same problem. Instruction manual was of little to know help - only reference to the voicemail was on the indentify parts picture and that you had to have the service through your service provider. Tried calling GE all they would do was keep pitching there tech service for a fee. Since the unit was almost 2 years old they said it would be "cost prohibitive to send it for repair" and if I did not want to pay for tech support (starting at about $30 and up depending on the problem) they would suggest I buy a new phone!!!! I paid $169 for this phone less than 2 years ago 6.0 with base and extra set and they say it is obsolete. After much searching (on my own) found the problem. You need to call and talk to your phone company. If any service disruption, repair, add on service, combining services, etc have taken place they may have changed your service. Without notifying you they may have "upgraded" your service so that all unanswered calls go to their wireless version of an answering machine registered to your phone number. They do not have to tell you they have changed or upgraded your service to do this. The easiest way to tell is to have someone call you and be there when it rings but don't answer. If after a certain amount of rings it stops (8 or less) or even better is you have an answering machine and it doesn't go to the answering machine - there's your culprit!!! Call your tester and ask them what "voicemail message" they received - if any. The amazing part to me is friends did not even notice the different message - we were missing appointment checks and everything due to the little "complimentary upgrade". For my telephone through TDS the way to also check was to pick up the phone and dial *95. This service can only be turned off by the phone company - hopefully before it wears down your handset batteries like it did ours in less than 2 weeks.

May be what I look as a problem is normal. In any case I cannot talk to anyone at Vtech. All I get is the run around. I only bought this phone system 3 days ago. What warranty if you cannot speak to them wothout a credit card.
