Note: Information stored in the phone's memory will be retained for thirty minutes after the battery pack is removed. This includes all setup information, last number dialed, speed dial memory, and the CID list. Even when the battery pack is not being used, it will gradually discharge over a long period of time. For optimum performance, be sure to return the handset to the cradle after a telephone call. Battery Replacement and Handling Recharge your phone on a regular basis by returning the handset to either cradle after each phone call. When the operating time becomes short even after a battery is recharged, please replace the battery. With normal usage, your battery should last about one year. To order replacement batteries, please contact Uniden’s Parts Department. The contact information is listed on the back cover page. Warning: To avoid the risk of personal injury or property damage from fire or electrical shock, only use the Uniden battery model and Uniden adapter model specifically designated for this product. Caution: • Use only the specified Uniden battery pack (BT-1006). • Do not remove the battery from the handset to charge it. • Never throw the battery into a fire, disassemble it, or heat it. • Do not remove or damage the battery casing. Cleaning the Battery Charging Contacts To maintain a good charge, clean the charging contacts on the handset once a month. Dampen a cloth with plain water. Gently rub the damp cloth over the charging contacts until all visible dirt is removed. Dry the contacts thoroughly before returning the handset to the cradle. Contacts Caution: Do not use paint thinner, alcohol, or other chemical products.

(Refer to "Changing the Digital Security Code".) • When there is a power failure that lasts more than one hour. • If a handset's battery is completely discharged. (The handset must be recharged for 15 - 20 hours before re-registering to the base.) • Any time you experience difficulty connecting to the base to place or receive calls. To re-register handsets: ) Pick up the handset from the base. Press and hold [find] on the base. 2) While holding [find], place the handset in the base. The in use/ LED on the base begins to flash, indicating the base is registering the handset. Wait for at least five seconds. 3) Pick up the handset from the base and press [talk/flash].

If the handset battery pack is completely discharged or the battery pack is removed, the digital security code will be lost. If this happens, a new security code is set automatically the next time the battery pack is charged in the base. In the rare situation that you suspect another cordless telephone is using the same security code, you can change the code. To change the digital security code, re-register both handsets to the base following the instructions in "Re-registering Handsets" above. Note: Any handsets that are not properly re-register may not be able to communicate with the base.
