How to Change the Channel on a Uniden Cordless Phone

By Maya Walker

Uniden offers a variety of cordless phones. The phones are available in varying frequencies including 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz. Changing the channel on your Uniden phone helps to decrease call quality issues such as static and garbled sounds. Changing the channel also decreases the possibility of someone eavesdropping on your conversation. Depending on the model of your Uniden cordless phone, the steps may vary slightly.

Step 1

Pick up your Uniden cordless phone handset and dial a number. Wait for the person to answer.

Step 2

Press the "CH/R.Tone" or "Chan" button.

Step 3

Wait for the phone to search for a different channel. The "Talk" LED will flash while it is searching.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you continue to experience call quality issues, change the channel again. You may need to press the button several times to find the best channel.
  • While the phone is searching for a new channel, you will not be able to talk to the other party.
