- Press and hold handset locator on base station until 'in use' light comes on.
- Press # on the handset and the phone registers itself to the base station.
I repeated the above procedure with my two remaining handsets and now I have a 6 handset cordless system for my home.
It's important to note that if you have a working base station you should use the standard instructions for deregistering the handsets. Each handset gets allocated a handset number by the base station, if you deregister using the special code detailed in this post then the reserved handset number on the base station is consumed and cannot be reclaimed; thus reducing the number of handsets the base station can support by 1. The special code is only for use when you have a handset that is orphaned from a lost or non-working base station. www.apparelstore38.com
