Replacing a cordless handset.

We have a Telstra F2300 landline telephone. It has a base station with an
answering machine and a cordless handset. It has two additional cordless
handsets.
One of the handsets is failing, in that the display has lost a row of dots
and the stored numbers don't always dial the full set of digits. I have put
the faulty handset into another cradle/charger and replaced its batteries
without causing any change.
Does anyone know if it is possible to buy/use  a replaceable handset?
Would a handset from the house up the street work, for example, or does each
set of handsets have its own frequencies?
I phoned the  Telstra shop where I bought it, and the teenager I talked to
didn't seem to grasp the concept of a model number, assured me they sold
telephones, assured me that any handset would work, and assured me that it
would be cheaper to buy a newer model with three handsets. He eventually
gave me a phone number for "Service".
The Indian lady at "Service" introduced herself as Debbie from Melbourne.
She too had difficulty grasping the concept of a model number. Eventually,
after a couple of long periods on hold, she told me that they don't sell
that model, and transferred me to a section dealing with line problems and
equipment faults. The peopole here were very helpful and suggested
ringing....wait for it, wait for it... Harvey Norman.
I did so and I now know why Telstra sent me to Harvey Norman.
They make even Telstra look good.

**Do yourself a huge favour and dump it now. Buy a Panasonic cordless and
you will never look back. I've owned a bunch of cordless 'phones over the
years. The ONLY reason I've purchased new Panas, is because I wanted
new/better/different features. None has ever failed. All the others have.

I used to make a fair bit of money repairing early model Panasonics.
The batteries would leak or the mylar conductor strip in the hinge would
wear out and go intermittent like clockwork. Good units though, by and
large.

often these typeof devices devices peer the handset to the base station
when the handset is being charged.

you may be able to do some experiments to determine if that is the
case for your one.
