Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Having reception problems is no doubt a matter of some inconvenience. Please describe the problem just a little more.
Also I need to ask, whether the problem shows up on the base station alone (without any handset being involved) e.g. in speakerphone mode? and in what manner? this point could be quite significant.
Also I need to ask, whether you have added any other device (answering machine, fax, DSL/ADSL modem, etc.) to your local phone line -using devices, recently?
