Installation
You must install and charge
the handset battery before
using the cordless handset.
See pages 9-10 for easy
instructions.
Install the telephone base close to a telephone jack and a power outlet
not controlled by a wall switch. The telephone base can be placed on a flat
surface or vertically mounted on the wall (page 11). For optimum range and
better reception, place the telephone base in a central and open location.
You may hear interference if your cellular phone is too close to the
telephone base during a CELLULAR call. Make sure that your Bluetooth
enabled cellular phone is within 15 feet of the telephone base in order to
maintain a clear and consistent connection between your Bluetooth cell
phone, telephone base and cell tower.
If you subscribe to high-speed Internet service (digital subscriber line DSL) through your telephone line, you must install a DSL filter between the
telephone line cord and the telephone wall jack (page 7). The filter prevents
noise and caller ID problems caused by DSL interference. Please contact your
DSL service provider for more information about DSL filters.
Your product may be shipped with a protective sticker covering the handset
or telephone base display - remove it before use.

Caller ID
About caller ID
This product supports caller ID services provided by most telephone service
providers. Caller ID allows you to see the name, number, date and time of
calls. The available caller ID information will appear after the first or
second ring. Caller ID from the home line allows you to see the name,
number, date and time of the incoming calls. The caller ID may appear
differently if the caller is matched to a directory entry (see Memory match
on page 70).
Information about caller ID with call waiting
Caller ID with call waiting lets you see the name and
telephone number of the caller before answering the
telephone, even while on another call.
It may be necessary to change your telephone service to use
this feature. Contact your telephone service provider if:

• You have only caller ID service, or only call waiting service.
• You don’t subscribe to caller ID or call waiting services.
There are fees for caller ID services. In addition, services may
not be available in all areas.
Caller ID information is available only if both you and the

How the caller ID history (caller ID log) works
The telephone stores caller ID information about the
last 50 incoming calls in the telephone base. Entries are
stored in reverse chronological order. The phone deletes
the oldest entry when the log is full to make room for
new calls. This information is common to all handsets,
so changes made using any handset are reflected in
all other handsets. If you answer a call before the
information appears on the screen, it does not show in
the caller ID history.

Memory match
If the incoming telephone number matches the last seven
digits of a telephone number in your directory, the name that
appears on the screen matches the corresponding name in
your directory.
For example, if Christine Smith calls, her name appears as
Chris if this is how you enter it into your directory.
NOTE: The number you see on your caller ID is in the format from
the telephone service provider. It usually delivers 10-digit telephone
numbers (area code plus telephone number). If the last seven digits of the

About the answering system
Answering system and voicemail
Your telephone has separate indicators for two different types of voice
messages: those recorded on its built-in answering system and those
recorded in your service provider’s voicemail (fees may apply). Your
telephone’s built-in answering system messages and voicemail messages are
separate. Each alerts you to new messages differently.
If
and XX New messages display on the handsets and the message
window on the telephone base flashes, there are new messages in the built/PLAY/STOP on the telephone base. To listen
in answering system, press
to messages with a handset, see To listen to messages with a handset on
page 86.
If
and New voicemail display on the handsets, your telephone service
provider is indicating that it has new voicemail for you. To listen to your
voicemail, you typically dial an access number provided by your telephone
service provider, followed by a security code or PIN.
Some service providers bundle or combine multiple services like voicemail
and call waiting, so you may not be aware that you have voicemail. To check
what services you have and how to access them, contact your telephone
service provider.
To use your voicemail service rather than your answering system, turn off
your answering system. To use your answering system rather than your
voicemail service, contact your telephone service provider to deactivate your
voicemail service.
Using the answering system and voicemail together
You can also use your telephone answering system and voicemail together
by setting your built-in answering system to answer before voicemail answers
as described below. To learn how to program your voicemail settings, contact
your telephone service provider. Then, if you are on a call, or if the answering
system is busy recording a message and you receive another call, the second
caller can leave a voicemail message.
Set your answering system to answer calls at least two rings earlier than
your voicemail is set to answer. For example, if your voicemail answers
after six rings, set your answering system to answer after four rings. Some
voicemail providers may program the delay before answering calls in seconds
instead of rings. In this case, allow six seconds per ring when determining the
appropriate setting.

About the answering system
Message capacity
The answering system can record and store up to 99 messages. Each
message can be up to three minutes in length depending on the message
length set (see Recording time on page 81). The total storage capacity

The actual recording time depends on individual message characteristics.
Messages remain available for replay until you delete them.

Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
• Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so it must
be treated with care.
• Avoid rough treatment.
• Place the handset down gently.
• Save the original packing materials to protect your telephone if you ever
need to ship it.
Avoid water
• Your telephone can be damaged if it gets wet. Do not use the handset in
the rain, or handle it with wet hands. Do not install the telephone base
near a sink, bathtub or shower.
Electrical storms
• Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic
equipment. For your own safety, take caution when using electric
appliances during storms.
Cleaning your telephone
• Your telephone has a durable plastic casing that should retain its luster for
many years. Clean it only with a soft cloth slightly dampened with water
or a mild soap.
• Do not use excess water or cleaning solvents of any kind.
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used when you are wet or
standing in water. If the telephone base should fall into water, DO NOT RETRIEVE IT UNTIL
YOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE CORDS FROM THE WALL. Then pull
the telephone out by the unplugged cords.

Especially about corded telephones
• Privacy: The same features that make a cordless telephone convenient create some
limitations. Telephone calls are transmitted between the telephone base and the handset
by radio waves, so there is a possibility that your cordless telephone conversations could
be intercepted by radio receiving equipment within range of the cordless handset. For this
reason, you should not think of cordless telephone conversations as being as private as those
on corded telephones.
• Electrical power: The telephone base of this cordless telephone must be connected to a
working electrical outlet which is not controlled by a wall switch. Calls cannot be made
from the handset if the telephone base is unplugged, switched off or if the electrical power
is interrupted.
• Potential TV interference: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that may cause
interference to TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, do not place the
telephone base of the cordless telephone near or on top of a TV or VCR. If interference
is experienced, moving the cordless telephone farther away from the TV or VCR will often
reduce or eliminate the interference.

Precautions for users of implanted cardiac pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to digital cordless telephones): Wireless Technology Research,
LLC (WTR), an independent research entity, led a multidisciplinary evaluation of the interference
between portable wireless telephones and implanted cardiac pacemakers. Supported by the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration, WTR recommends to physicians that:
Pacemaker patients
• Should keep wireless telephones at least six inches from the pacemaker.
• Should NOT place wireless telephones directly over the pacemaker, such as in a breast
pocket, when it is turned ON.
• Should use the wireless telephone at the ear opposite the pacemaker.
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to bystanders with pacemakers from other persons
using wireless telephones.
