How to Program a Uniden Phone

Uniden phones are landline-type portable phones and are useful to have in the home for lengthy phone calls. Calls from a domestic landline-to-landline can often be bundled in a basic monthly subscription you can get with your TV or Internet service. Also, using a landline can sometimes save you money compared with a cell phone. You can program Uniden phones with frequently used names and numbers. The Uniden DECT1080 can store 100 numbers. The phone book names are stored alphabetically.

Press the Down main navigation button and press Menu/OK. The main navigation button is in the center of the keypad and is cylindrical in shape.

Press the Menu/OK button and “Enter Name” will appear on the display.
