Deregister Uniden 8866 Handset

This works great. We just bought a Uniden extra handset used and found out if you don't have the old base station you can simply erase the settings in memory.

Here's what you do:
  • pull the battery
  • hold down * and # while reinserting battery
  • wait for beep
  • hit rightmost soft button (keys at top under the lcd screen)
  • wait for 'erase complete' message
  • hit end
Should work like a charm.

Jay - Thanks for the tip. I was waiting for 3 days for Uniden tech support to get back to me and I finally took matters in my own hands and found your tip. Your are right it worked like a charm!
