The purpose of this article is to show you how to Manage and/or Change the Handset Registration of the Yealink W52 Cordless Phone.

Ordering handsets

  • Your Yealink W52 Cordless Phones are pre-registered with the base station before they are shipped.  There is no need to register the handsets after receiving your first order of a base station and phone(s).
  • You can register up to 5 handsets to one W52 Cordless Phone base station. Each handset can be registered to 4 different base stations.
  • When ordering additional handsets, your new handset will require manual registration with the base station.  Please follow the manual handset registration instructions below for each new handset.

Replacing base or handset

  • If your base station has been replaced you do not need to de-register your handsets before registering them with the new base station, because your handsets can be registered with up to 4 different base stations. To register your handsets to the new base station, follow the manual handset registration instructions for each handset.
  • If your handset has been replaced you must de-register the old handset(s) from the base station before you can register your replacement handset(s). From any functioning handset follow the de-registration process and repeat for each old handset. When complete, follow the manual handset registration instructions for each replacement handset.
