Tried registering both my philips 433 messanger phone handsets and also some doro 850 colour ones which both claim dect gap aupport but neither register when I try.

What phones have people got to register ok on the fritz?

Hi
I have been using Fritzbox 7270 with the Gigaset s685ip phone with s68h handsets for a year or so without to much of a problem.

Im going to steal my flatmates orcon genius handset sometime today and see if that will register to it. Shame I gave away all my dect phones when I upgraded to 2.4GHz ones.

I got one of my panasonics back and tried it, no joy still so decided to factory reset the fritz and suddenly all the phones are registering to it.

Some werid things, like the intercom button doesnt work I have to dial the **something number for the handsets, and when I make an outgoing call on 2talk there isnt any ringing, and I dont get a dialtone if I press the green button before dialing, but other than that its working great it seems.

Tempting to get the fritz fon to get the fancy features.

I installed the fon android app and it can make calls, but it only seems to want to do it out the loudspeaker, even tho it has the proximity sensor operating (red glow) and it blanks the screen when its close to your cheek.

Usually all GAP-capable DECT 1.9 GHz handsets work with FritzBoxes. For best experience, however, better get an original AVM Fritz handset or one from Gigaset as only these provide features like a call list (showing all placed, missed and answered calls) including notification for missed calls by a blinking LED, indication of used line or VoIP account during incoming and outgoing calls and access to the DECT menu which allows some settings like disabling and enabling WiFi etc.
There's a list of compatible handsets and supported functions on a German wiki: http://wiki.ip-phone-forum.de/fritz_box7270-dect#tabellarische_uebersicht
Fritz handsets offer some additional features like an email reader, RSS reader and webradio (using shoutcast stream) - these settings appear in the FritzBox GUI once a appropriate handset has been registered.
When buying a Gigaset handset watch out for a feature called "HDSP" which basicly means it supports  G.722, a high definition audio codec which is also supported by all DECT-enabled FritzBoxes and allows VoIP calls in notably superior quality if the other party also supports G.722.

Yeah, the dect range on the fritz is absolutly useless with the testing I have done and I have had no joy getting a dect repeater to pair to it even with changing the encryption option to off.

Will just stick with having people call me on the mobile. Less hassles that way ;)

I got my Panasonic kx-tg1171 to register no problem.  Even kept it registered on the main base station at same time until number is ported to 2talk.  Just went register phone entered pin then ok and it works like a charm.  Make sure you use plus.2talk.co.nz and change it in the 2talk beta settings to use the new settings it might solve the ringing issue.

Low range is usually owed to compatibility issues with certain handsets. I've experienced the furthest range with Gigasets (even better than original AVM handsets). Thus I would rather try another handset which would also give you more functionality than buying a DECT repeater. Also make sure there are not too many obstacles close to your FritzBox as this impacts signal propagation and so decreases range.

I really need repeaters to get the whole place covered. even without them on the philips messenger phone which is the one that gave me the best range of any it ends up that people start to have issues hearing me when I am the other side of the garage etc.

Im just going to go back to the doro base on the analog ports as those other handsets are too expensive for the rate I break them.

The light on the doro repeater is flashing slowly which means its registered, it just seems that the calls never actually go thru the repeater.
