Not happy with this phone
I purchased this phone for my business and had trouble months after.
Phone sounds fuzzy when talking also can’t hear voice messages clearly.
Phone is getting worse, I’m now shopping for a new one.
Rang my phone company to check if it’s the reception or bad line but They said it’s not.
Excellent response to query
On advising the Uniden Customer Service team of my problem I received a detailed reply allowing me to ascertain that the actual problem was a flat NBN backup battery actuating a phone alarm. This allowed me to fix the problem and restored my faith in the Uniden system.
I cannot work out how to use this phone, it is the most complicated piece of equipment in the house. All I want to do is switch the answer phone on and off and pick up my calls, I want to throw it down the creek I am so frustrated with it.
1735 cordless phone wont ring. Rang Uniden for help, no help was offered told to take it back the phone was faulty. The lady I spoke to was rude and talked over me all the time then hung up me. DO NOT BUY UNIDEN PRODUCTS
Purchased in July 2020 at BigW for A$99.00.
2nd Faulty Phone.
Purchased a Uniden DECT 1735+3 14 months ago. No 2 Phone died. We decided to buy a new Uniden DECT 1735 +3 on 5th July 2020. I installed it and did a test. Everything worked as it should for about half an hour. I noticed a No 8 appear on the base Phone. When I tested the phone nothing worked. I Phoned the Good Guys and told them the problem and asked for assistance, thinking I have done something wrong. They just told me they did not make house calls and to return the phone. I am using my old phone at present until I can purchase one that works.I rely on our landline as we are elderly and do not have a mobile phone. This exercise caused me so much stress as I had just come out of Hospital with major Surgery. I am not impressed.
The handset won't charge.
When I first used the phone, it worked. Then I found it was completely flat. So I reseated it, and nothing. I removed the battery and put it back and it turned on. Put it in the cradle, and it started charging, or so I thought.. the charging light went off after 5 minutes and it would not charge again. Removed the battery, repeated the above, and it did the same thing.
Either a faulty battery or charger. Either way, from a uniden product, terrible.
Dreadful. Two of four phones dead in five months.
Bought January 2020. Four phones. One dead in three months, the second dead June 2020. Have bought an 8355 and hope this is better. I will then return the 1735.

Had So Much Promise, But Fails To Deliver
I had so much hope for this product. After using various Uniden products over many years the only failures we had ever had was either being chewed by the dog, or an unfortunate incident with a toilet. With this sort of brand loyalty built up over decades I didn't even consider any of the competitors - why would I, Uniden had never let me down (unlike that damn dog).
The marketing spiel sounded like it would do the job, the specs confirmed that this was the product that we needed (with 3 separate levels we need base + 2 handsets). Setup was ver...y easy no surprises at all, but that's where the good news ends. - It only rings 6 times before the answering machine picks it up. I have changed the settings from 6 rings to 9 rings and also 12 rings, but still the same thing. - If I do manage to get to the phone before the answering machine picks it up, when I pick up the handset it does not connect (at least, not every-time). - There are frequent issues where the handset says 'Not Connected' - The old phone would work in the shed, this one will not - even now that the base is closer to the back yard - The audio quality doesn't seem as good as the old phones, although this is quite subjective and can't be measured Unfortunately I can only rate this as 3 stars, and if I'm honest, one of those stars is only there for old times sake because of how good Uniden has been in the past, but not now.
i rang my nbn provider and no faults have reset my uniden and after 5 minutes of having a conversation it cuts out and plays a recording of the conversation we already had DO NOT BUY this rubbbish product
Phone died after 3-4 months both time
Good and reasonably priced phone except the power function died after 3 months, then the same thing happened with the replacement after 4 months. Cant be a coincidence but nobody else has complained of this happening.
Disappointed with phone
I have had no end of trouble getting the answering service to work even when the handset and base tell me the answering service is on followed the instructions in the booklet but no go what I need is a step by step instruction on how to set it up
Purchased in September 2019 for A$119.00.

Great value phone
Purchased this phone a few months ago to replace my old phone. As I rarely use my house phone, I wanted one for the added security of knowing that I have a phone in case of emergency. The extra handset is handy as I can keep one next to the bed while the other is in the living room. It is wifi and nbn friendly, and doesn't crackle when the microwave is used. It has an advanced alpha display caller ID, 70 phonebook memories, an integrated digital answering machine and up to 10hrs talk time and 7 days standby, and can be either wall mounted or desk mounted for convenience.
Seems to work fine. No Issues at all
Changed over to Uniden DECT phone yesterday after continuing problems I have experienced with Telstra approved hand set that I have had for 10 plus years.
Unit was was easy to set up and I had the phones working with my NBN in a matter of minutes. Batteries were included for both phones and were easy to clip in to slot in the handsets.
Now I am able to pick up calls at the press of a button and no longer experience dropouts or "screeching" hand sets when I attempt to receive a call.
The unit and handsets are neat, easy to use and appealing to look at. Very happy so far.
Purchased in April 2019 for A$50.00.
Purchased a couple of weeks ago. Had problems since day one!
Firstly, Noise on the line when trying to make or receive a call. So loud making the phone unworkable. Having to revert to our mobile phones.
Second. Intermittent dialing tone. Sometimes you get it, sometimes nothing.
Have done all suggested checks but to no avail.
Perhaps we just got a 'bad' one but that is no help!
Unfortunately we disposed of the packaging and receipt otherwise it would have gone back to the shop.
Only solution is to bin it and purchase a new phone which will definitely NOT be a Uniden!
Easy to set up and NBN friendly
These phone system is easy to set up and connect to your modem for use through the NBN. The 3 handsets have there own charging stand, this is handy to have in different parts of the house. You will never be with out a phone that isn't charged.
I would recommend this phone to anyone wanting an easy to use phone.
Purchased in January 2019 at Ebay for A$73.45.
Battery is not good
Just purchased this and while it looks great it’s battery is not good and mine heated up,the battery hook up to back of the phone clip

An ok phone for the money
Bought the phone for $44.95 from JB Hi Fi. Single handset and base as we don't need or use extra handsets. Phone rings loud and clear, however there is no way of turning up the volume during conversations which is only a problem for my husband. We use it on speaker phone if necessary. A bit slow and painful to input phone numbers into the phone book but that is only a minor irritation. Not really a bad phone at all for the price. No problems so far.
Good value wireless landline phone.
Bought it on special for $69.-.
I have 4 handset version. Using 2 and the other 2 as spare.
Got 3 extra chargers which I don't use or need. Just using base for charging.
Great for calls. Having it on half volume and it is very clear, so there is lots of extra volume to turn it up if needed.
Clear voice on both sides. Display is good and clear. Handset light and easy to hold (comfortable in hand).
Will not let me know if missed non CID call, only registers CID calls for incoming call list!
No 24Hour clock (AM PM only)!
Centralized phone book (70 max.).
Centralized incoming call list (30 max.).
Handset specific outgoing call list (redial list 5 max.). ...
This phone is of poor quality. When you purchase with extra hand sets, if the base unit goes wrong the other units go wrong so you have to purchase the complete package again as the extra handsets are programmed to only work with the original base. Also no volume control so if anyone is hard of hearing you have to ask the other person to speak up. This phone is not cheap compared with other simular products.
Its a phone
DECT phone - nothing special . Its OK it has TERRIBLE input strategy for adding names and numbers to the Phone book . One character at a time what for the beep enter next character wait for the beep a 10 digit Mobile number takes AGES to input. But that's probably (at this stage) the only Negative .Like all new gadgets it is necessary to refer to the manual and that seems to cover the bases. The phone itself is OK but when connected to a mobile phone - the mobile seems like its in a tin or enclosed "echo" environment- not the best reception IMHO.
Across the board I think its a good product, is cost comparable and I would not discourage anyone form a purchase.
Questions & Answers
Hi, I just bought the above phone and have connected to Optus NBN but the hand set display is saying "Check TEL line". What does this mean please?
