Gen 2 pairing with handsets

Answered

The telstra Gen 2 modem has a "pairing" button on it. I used it to pair a Telstra Tvoice cordless handset, but the handset died (out of warranty period) & telstra don't sell them anymore.  What other handset can you "pair" with the gen 2 modem, without the need for a base to be plugged into the modem?

Re: Gen 2 pairing with handsets

The modem has a DECT 2.0 base, most handsets available in Australia these days are DECT 6.0 handsets including the cordless handsets sold by Telstra and therefore will no pair with modem. The only handset that is guaranteed to work is this one.

Hi - just an additional qualification, make sure whatever phone replacement you choose clearly states it has DECT CAT iQ 2.0 or higher support as that is what the Integral DECT Base Station Radio inside the Smart Modem expects to see when you pair it to the Modem.
