3) Installing the Phone
Choosing the Best Location
Before choosing a location for your new phone, here are some important
guidelines you should consider:
Avoid heat sources, such as
radiators, air ducts, and sunlight
Avoid noise sources such as a
window by a street with heavy traffic
Avoid television sets and
other electronic equipment
Avoid microwave ovens
Avoid excessive
moisture, extremely
low temperatures, dust,
mechanical vibration,
or shock
Choose a
central location
Avoid
personal computers
Avoid other
cordless telephones
• Choose a location close to both a phone jack and a continuous power
outlet (one which is not connected to a switch).
• Keep the base and handsets away from sources of electrical noise such as
motors, microwave ovens, and fluorescent lighting.
• For better reception, place the base as high as possible. You can place the
base on a desk or table top or mount it on the wall.
• Place the base in an open area for optimum range and reception.
• If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the
telephone line, be sure that installing the system does not disable your
alarm equipment. If you have questions about what will disable your alarm
equipment, contact your telephone company or a qualified installer.

switch to tone dialing. When the call ends, the phone automatically
returns to pulse dialing mode.

Caller ID allows you to see the name and number of the calling party before
you answer the phone. Caller ID on Call Waiting (CIDCW) lets you see the
name and number of a call that comes in when you are on the line. You must
subscribe to Caller ID service through your local telephone provider to use
this feature.

setting to the base, and the base activates the setting on any other
handsets.

can program your local area code in your phone. Calls that come from within
your area code will show only the seven-digit phone number; calls from
outside your area code will show all ten digits.

Power Failure
During the period that the power is off, you will not be able to make or
receive calls with the telephone.
Battery Life
With average use, your handset battery provides approximately six hours of
talk time and approximately seven days of standby time. You can achieve
optimum battery life and performance by returning the handset to the base or
charger cradle after each use. When your handset is left off of the cradle, the
battery will gradually discharge even if the handset is not being used. The
actual talk time duration will be reduced in proportion to the amount of time
the handset is off of the cradle.
Low Battery Alert
When the battery pack is very low and needs
to be charged, the phone is programmed to
Low Battery
eliminate functions in order to save power. If the
phone is not in use, LOW BATTERY appears
on the LCD and none of the keys will operate. During a call, LOW BATTERY
flashes and the handset beeps. Complete your conversation as quickly as
possible and return the handset to the cradle for charging.
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

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.

• 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 display
shows TALK, the handset is registered. If not, place the handset in the
base to try again.
4) Press [end].
) Place the next handset in the base and wait for at least five seconds.
No need to hold [find] this time.
) Repeat steps 3 - 5 with any other handsets you have.
Changing the Digital Security Code
The digital security code is an identification code used to connect the handset
and the base. 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.
Traveling Out-of-Range
During a call, as you begin to move your handset too far from your base
noise increases. If you pass the range limits of the base, your call will
terminate within one minute.

ACTA.
On the bottom of this equipment is a label that contains, among other information, a product
identifier in the format US: AAAEQ##TXXXX. If requested, this number must be provided to the

RENs, contact the telephone provider. For products approved after July 23, 2001, the REN for
this product is part of the product identifier that has the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. The digits
represented by ## are the REN without a decimal point (e.g., 03 is a REN of 0.3). For earlier
products, the REN is separately shown on the label.

Cordless Telephone Privacy
Cordless telephones are radio devices. Communications between the handset and base of
your cordless telephone are accomplished by means of radio waves which are broadcast
over the open airways. Because of the inherent physical properties of radio waves, your
communications can be received by radio receiving devices other than your own cordless
telephone unit. Consequently, any communications using your cordless telephone may not be
private.
