My VTech 8100-2 just died. The base station seems to be functioning since the LEDs are green and it is showing I have a VM.

The problem is all 4 handsets say "SEARCHING...", "CHARGING" or "PLACE IN CHARGER".

I tried resetting the base station using the instructions, I tried unplugging my modem, router and base station, and then reconnecting them one at a time.

I called Vonage, they were no help.

I reset the base station by holding down the Page button and unplugging.

Nothing is working. BTW, this all happened after a power outage in my neighborhood.

So, after 2 days without a phone, wife has had enough and told me to either get something that works or we're going back to QWEST, and I really don't want to do that.

So I was looking at the Uniden UIP1869V. I assume this is similar to my VTECH 8100 in that it includes everything I need. Just plug it in and go?

Can anyone shed some light?

Thank you in advance for your help.

I just checked it out on the website, it looks pretty cool. I didn't even know this existed until now. Although I never used it, I was never a fan of the Vtech system. Basically because you are left with a phone system that doesn't work when the base station dies. Which is basically the same as the uniden. Although it says that you can use it with an analog line as well. That would be my only hesitation. Do you already have a router? If so, I would pick up a Vonage adapter and buy a phone system separate. That way you can continue to use the phones when the adapter dies. That's just my preference though.

So to make sure I understand, I just need a Vonage adapter and then I could hook up this particular phone system to that adapter? SInce I used the Vtech system for the last 3 years, I am new to how this would work.

Sorry, I didn't quite follow your last post. When you say this particular phone system, do you mean use your old vtech with a new Vonage adapter or use the uniden with a new adapter. I guess in either case, neither option would work. The thing I don't like about the all in one units, such as the vtech or uniden, is that the base station is your Vonage adapter and your cordless phone adapter. If the Vonage adaper portion quits, you are stuck with a cordless phone system that is worthless. If your cordless phone system stops working, like in your case, you are stuck with a Vonage adapter that won't work with other phones. For that reason, I prefer to only have a Vonage adapter without the phone system. That way, you can plug in any phone that you want into the adapter.

What is your current network set-up? Modem to router to vtech system? Or do you only have a modem into the vtech and into your computer?

Have Modem --> Router --> Vtech.

I also had Modem -->Router-->Switch -->Vtech and that worked well until the power outage.

I then went back to the Modenm-->Router-->Vtech and no joy.

I understand what you are saying. My question is if I buy the Vonage adapter, I can then buy just about any cordless phone system and it will work?

Can you explain the setup for me? Will the newer DEC 6 phone systems work with this type of setup.

Sorry for all the questions, just want to make sure what I buy tomorrow works when I get home without any issues.

Thanks again.

You got it! That is why I prefer just the Vonage adapter. Since you already have a router, you can just buy a standalone Vonage adapter. They have no routing function and are meant to be used as only a phone adapter with an existing router. I have the Dlink VTA and I've been happy with it for over two years now. Target shows they still have it. I believe walmart carries it as well. I'm pretty sure BestBuy still carries the Linksys Pap2, which is just like the Dlink VTA in terms of funtion. Bottom line is: Buy a Vonage adapter and then buy whatever phone or phone system you want to plug into the adapter. Then you would just plug in the adapter to your router and plug the phone into the line 1 jack.

I don't see why the dect 6.0 phones wouldn't work. I do remember seeing a post here a while ago talking about them. You could search the forum to see if you can find any input on those particular systems.

One last note. When you buy a new adapter, you can add it to your account and switch your number to the new adapter all online. So you don't have to call customer service to do it. There is a link on the Vonage homepage that says: Bought it at a store? Click here to activate.
