Great phone

My other phones are Panasonic older models which are great but one if them died. After purchasing other brands I was frustrated and didn't know what phone to buy , I was a bit hesitant to buy this phone, it's a basic phone but you can here clear and has no interference and has a reasonable price.

Date PurchasedApr 2017

Amazing For The Price

The Uniden DECT 1015 is a new model claiming to be WiFi friendly. I thought this important, as the phone was to be connected directly into my broadband modem. And I did not want conversations to be picked up audibly on other devices sharing the WiFi setup. In some instances phones sharing a WiFi system, may experience static or other form of interference. But the 1015 has the latest American cordless phone technology, DECT 6.0, which eliminates interference.

This model is a single handset unit, but seems to also be sold as a two handset model, with intercom. But, it obviously would have a different model number. The phone and base are compact, and placing the phone into it's base, is very easy to achieve, as the base contacts fit immediately into the handset. No fiddling to make the connection.

The phone is meant to initially be charged for 15 hours before use. I couldn't resist after 1 hour, and found the phone worked perfectly. However, I then let it charge up overnight.

It works perfectly from one end of the double brick wall house to the other. Out in the garage, no problem, Even in the garden.

It has a ton of features, including 1 3 line backlit full dot matrix LED display; caller display; 30 phonebook entries and 30 caller ID memories. The base is wall mountable. I should mention that the volume is variable, and can be increased to extremely loud.

How much should such a phone cost? An absolute bargain at $24 from Dick Smith.

Hi Hugh, Unfortunately, there is no option on this phone model where you can adjust the backlight. We do have this option on a few of our XDECT range of phones. Has it been the same display backlight since you purchased the unit, or has it changed recently?just got it 2 days ago ,can say it was never any good, if i press a button it looks like it may want to work but is so weak its useless. thought there may be an adjustment but as you say there is not. has there been other questions on this problem?As Uniden say, there is no adjustment. This is by now a very old phone. As they as cheap as chips, you should update, and bear your backlight problem in mind. I have to say I do not like the white text/numbers on gray keys. I find this combination hard to read.

Hi, my mum has two uniden dect 1015 handsets: She can • make outgoing calls; • see incoming call window and flashing light but • there is no ringer sound. There doesn’t appear to be an on/off for the ringer. The ringer has two settings flicker and (xxx) - sorry not eith phone so can’t recall second tone. Neither appears to turn the ringer on. Any ideas? Thanks Mary

Does the phone make a sound when it rings? Are you wanting to know how to switch the ringer off?I really don't know, but believe the phone would be set to a default ring tone, that can be changed to a few others they offer. It seems the phone might be faulty.
