Most cordless phone parts that are available can be found at TV jobber places such as MCM Electronics or Dalbaini. BUT, the parts that are available are primarily antennas and battery packs. That's it. These things were built in Asia, sold for $50 and aren't expected to be repaired. The only reason that antennas and batteries are offered is simply because they're often short-lived. Over the past 25 years, cordless phones have gone through at least 10 major technological changes, including changing the operating frequency up from 1.8MHz, to 49MHz, to 900MHz and on up into the GHz region; going from analog to digital; using spread spectrum technology. Most manufacturers figure that you'll upgrade before a phone breaks anyway, so why make them repairable?
