My headset is not working. It appears to be the base unit, as I have cleaned the gold connections and the charge light will not illuminate no matter what. The power light is on, but the charge light is not. I have unplugged/replugged everything.

I have had problems with either batteries holding the charge. Then, our IT replaced the headset, I believe it was a refurbished set. It worked great for about 4 weeks, now it pukes out after 2 1/2 hours to 3 hours of use. Very frustrated. What is the problem?

I am no longer able to place a call by picking up the headset. I have to take the handset off the cradle.

My headset keeps disconnecting from calls. I only have to press the connect/disconnect button on the headset to reconnect, but I miss what was said during the second or 2 of disconnection. On the base unit the phone light goes out when the disconnect happens. Happens randomly during calls, repeatedly in long calls.
