Essential Info

It used to be a generally accepted fact that telephones and water just didn't mix. If you dropped the phone in the tub or your teenager dropped it in the pool, that was pretty much the end of it. Until now. Uniden's 900 MHz Submersible Cordless Phone was designed to be submerged in water to a depth of three feet and for up to 30 minutes. The handset even floats, for extra security.


What's Included

  • Cordless phone base unit
  • Handset
  • Belt clip
  • AC adapter
  • Telephone cord
  • Owner's manual

  • More Info

    This Cordless Phone features rubber side grips, for maximum comfort and a belt clip for added hands-free ease. It is hearing-aid compatible and allows up to seven hours of talk time (14 days of standby time) before needing recharging. The Submersible Cordless Phone has 10 memory dial locations, which are not limited to phone numbers. You can also store a group of numbers (up to 20 digits) that you need to enter once your call connects — no more hunting down that bank account number once you've connected to your bank's automated teller!

    This phone can be mounted on any standard wall plate or directly to the wall. For wall mounting, use #10 screws (minimum length of 1-3/8 inches), sold separately. Additional features include a handset locator, 32-digit redial, and earpiece and ringer volume controls.

    Uniden warrants that the Submersible Cordless Phone is water submersible to JIS7 Specs, meaning that it may be submerged in 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes. Phone dimensions 6" H x 2.25" W x 1.25" D, base dimensions 4.75" H x 5" W x 3.75" D. This phone is also available in a 5.8GHz Phone.

    I have had my phone for 2 years love it love it love it but now I need to buy another one to many drops will make it bad
    Dave W. -- portland, Oregon   4/10/2008
    Very limited range and hard to use unless you are standing next to the wall mount. Nice looking phone, too bad it is a piece of junk for my shop use!
    MARYANN -- richmond hts, OH   10/29/2007
    This phone is awful,we can't even use it because the static is so bad. It's the second one we've tried so it's not just one unit that's bad, it just doesn't work. I would like a refund.
    JED -- belchertown, MA   10/25/2007
    Does not work well in house made with cinderblock walls. Very limited range. Buttons on handset are difficult to use in low light conditions as they do not light up. I exchanged the phone for the 5.8 ghz model with somewhat better range and much better to operate handset in low light conditions.
    THOMAS -- collinsville, IL   10/4/2007
    I like the phone but it has a humming sound when in use that I have not been able to eliminate.
    FERNANDO COLON -- bayamon, PR   9/26/2007
    KERRI -- st. louis, MO   9/4/2007
    Easy to install, easy to use, I get a lot of feedback when using the phone.
    CLAUDIA D. -- denver, CO   8/24/2007
    Buttons are small and the handset is heavy,but it does the job as submersible
    ELY -- port st. lucie, FL   8/6/2007
    Love the product so far. It was exactly what we needed.
    GORDON -- lincoln park, MI   8/2/2007
    great phone works great.
    WILLIAM -- washington, IN   8/1/2007
    Good product, great service
    BRADY -- canton, MI   7/27/2007
    Overall the phone worked quite well. The only thing that I did not like about the phone was the person on the other end could not here you very well. They said that they could hardly here me talking and sounded very muffled. So I had to return this product.
    CHRIS -- fernandina beach, FL   7/25/2007
    Doesn't work so good when wet. Others have a difficult time hearing me.
    VICKI -- riverview, FL   7/16/2007
    The receiver is not loud enough to hear the person talking on the other end. We have the volume up the entire way and you still can not hear the person you are talking to. I would not recommend this phone to anyone else.
    ERIK -- warren, OH   7/13/2007
    I'm not normally one to submit product reviews, but I feel this one is needed. The 5242 Uniden Submersible Phone is just terrible. It was purchased to be used poolside, and in the case that it should get wet, would still work. It is normally loud outside, so we turned the volume all the way up on the handset. When you do this, all you'll hear is feedback, which makes the phone nearly unusable for the purpose it was designed. What good is phone used outside, when you can't hear it? I should have returned it, but we threw all the boxes away. SmartHome was wonderful with the shipping part, timely and all. But just a review about a crappy product.
    DINEEN -- melrose, NY   7/6/2007
    The phone is terrible. Even when I am in the house right near the base there is always static, so bad that I am almost unable to hear at all. It is impossible to take the phone out of the house near the pool, which is what it's designed use is. Very poor quality product.
    WENDY -- durant, OK   7/5/2007
    This is a great phone! The only complaint I have is that you can't get too far from the base or it will have static in the reception.
    STEPHEN A -- loveland, OH   7/4/2007
    Functional phone, definitely waterproof. Decent range. Needs mute button.
    PAUL -- athens, TX   6/22/2007
    Great product! I love being able to use it in and around the pool. I've wanted this product for a long time and am very pleased with it.
    PILAR -- granite springs, NY   6/1/2007
    The shipment was here in days and the phone is great. Thank you so much!!!
