Cats peed on the base for our cordless phone. They ruined the charger part.
If I had a half of a brain, I’d have only ordered a new charger. But no…..
I went and ordered a new base unit. Except the base unit uses a corded phone. Imagine my surprise when it got here today and there was no corded handset, only the phone. Now, what the hell good is that? I put some black electrical tape on the button so that the phone isn’t always off the hook (I’m still shaking my head over this).
And my existing cordless handsets are not being recognized by the base unit. I’ve tried all the reregistering instructions in the manual with no success. So, I call the 800 number listed on the phone. Punch “4” because I’m getting the “out of range” message, even though the base and handset are less than six inches apart.
Unplug everything. Take the battery out of the handset. Then set it all up again. Then reregister. Great. I can’t get the fricking back off of the handset to get the fricking battery out of the fricking phone. I finally figure it out. Well, that was easy, why is there no instruction on that? Grrrr…
So, now I’m waiting. I’ve got about seven more minutes before I put the damned things back together.
I’m not happy. Damned cat piss. That stuff is lethal, too bad they can’t find something useful for it.
