I have four BT 8500 handsets that I can't use normally because the base unit is faulty. I would like to use the handsets as Intercom units within the house and garden. I can't find out how to do this from the User Guide but have seen Internet references to the feature being available.
I would appreciate any information on what to do. Thank you.
I don`t think that is going to be possible, as they need to communicate via the base unit.
Normally you would select the phone book option, and then scroll to the end of the list, and the other handset numbers would be shown. However, without a link to the base, I don`t think that would work.
Why not get a replacement base unit? You may have to get a handset with it, but you should be able to re-register your existing handsets to it.
Its possible you may be able to get just a spare base unit from the spares supplier.
