Warzel is one of my favorite tech culture reporters. He captures Musk’s stance perfectly by quoting Frank Wilhoit:
The base for my BL102-2 handset recently died due to a power surge. Got a new one because I already had multiple handsets. Then I’m sitting there trying to figure out how to register the handset with the new base. When you have the base the handset is currently registered to it’s easy, there’s a menu option on the base. Without the base it’s, well, easy … if you can find the info.
For my own reference here’s the process:
- press the [Menu] button, enter *7890#, press [Menu] again
- you’re now in the system menu for the handset
- scroll up twice to “REGISTER CLR” and press [Menu]
- You should see a confirmation message, press [Menu] one last time.
Info found in the Q/A for the BL102-3 on Amazon.
It would be less frustrating to know the nature of the disruption. Can somebody post actual into about whatâ€™s going on?
