Accessibility
Uniden provides a customer service hotline for accessibility questions. If you have a disability and need customer
service assistance or if you have any questions about how Uniden’s products can accommodate persons with
disabilities, please call the accessibility voice/TTY line: 1-800-874-9314.
Our customer care hours as well as accessibility information can be found on our website, www.uniden.com, under
the “Accessibility” link. If your call is received outside of our business hours, you can leave us a message and we will
call you back.
What Exactly does “Waterproof Handset” Mean?
The yellow handset complies with the JIS7 water submersion specifications. This means the handset can remain
submerged under 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes without damage or loss of functionality.
The handset will still receive calls even if it is under water, but you probably won’t be able to hear the ringer. To avoid
any accidents, do not try to use the handset while it is still under water.
Is the Charging Cradle Waterproof?
None of the charging cradles are waterproof: the yellow charging cradle is water resistant. The yellow cradle uses
a special method called magnetic inductive charging, so it can charge your handset without exposing any electronic
components. (You may notice that the charging contacts are enclosed in plastic and there is no metal showing.) This
charging method makes the cradle safe to use near water or in highly humid environments, but is it not designed
to be submerged in water.
Welcome
Thank you for purchasing a Uniden Multi-Handset phone with a waterproof, floating handset.
Installing the Phone
Choosing the Best Location
When choosing a location for your new phone, here are some important guidelines you should consider:

heavy traffic
• Dust
• Excessive
moisture
• Shock
• Vibration
Note: For maximum range:
• Keep both the base and handset antennas free of obstruction.
• When the handset is not in use, place the handset in an upright position.
• Metal and reinforced concrete may affect cordless telephone performance.
Installing the Battery

Press in on the handset
battery case cover.
Use the finger indention
for a better grip and slide
the cover downward to
remove.
Plug the battery cable into the

handset. Press down until it clicks.
To remove the belt clip, pull either side of the belt clip to release the tabs from the holes.
Installing the Phone
Connecting the AC adapter

Charging the Handsets
Place one handset in the base and
the others in the charging cradles
with the handset display facing
forward.
(The waterproof handset goes in the
yellow charging cradle; for the other
handsets, it doesn’t matter which one
goes in the base and which ones go
in the charging cradles.)
Charge your handsets completely before plugging in the phone line. The waterproof handset
need to charge for about 25 hours the first time; the others only need about 15-20 hours.

Changing the Dial Mode
Your phone can communicate with the telephone network in two different ways: tone dialing or pulse dialing. These
days, most base networks use a method called tone dialing, so your phone comes programmed for tone dialing. If
your phone company uses pulse dialing, you will need to change your phone’s dial mode. If you don’t get a dial tone
or can’t connect to the telephone network, please follow the steps below to modify your phone’s settings:
1. Press [Menu/Select]. Select the GLOBAL SETUP menu, and then the
DIAL MODE submenu.
. Scroll [ ] to highlight PULSE.
3. Press [Menu/Select]. You will hear a confirmation tone.
If you ever need to change the dial mode back to tone dialing, follow the same procedure, but select TONE in step 2.
NOW YOU ARE READY TO USE YOUR PHONE!
11
Installing the Phone
Try making a call. If your call does not connect or you cannot get a dial tone, try the following steps:
1. Make sure the AC adapter cord is securely connected to the DC IN 9V jack and a standard power outlet.
. Check to make sure the battery is fully charged. (If you don’t see the “battery full” icon, check to make sure
the battery is properly connected and charge again.)
3. Change the dial mode.
Wall Mounting the Base
This phone can be mounted on any standard wall plate.
Installing the Phone
Insert the two hooks on the
wall mount adapter into the
holes on the upper rear of
the base. Slide the adapter
up as far as it will go
(about 1/4 of an inch).
Gently press in
on the tabs at
the bottom of the
adapter. Slide
the bars under
the hooks on the
base.
Route the telephone cord through the hole of
the wall mount adapter, and plug the
telephone cord into the telephone wall jack.
Route the cord.
Wall plate
Connect the
telephone cord
into the TEL
LINE jack.
(To AC outlet)

Connect the AC adapter
to the DC IN 9V jack and
let the cord hang below
the wall mount adapter.
Wall plate
Slide the base down
to lock it into place.
(To AC outlet)
Notes:
• DO NOT use an AC outlet controlled by a wall switch.
• To mount the phone directly on the wall, insert two #10 screws (minimum length of 1 3/8 inches, not supplied) into
the wall, 3 15/16 inches apart; leave the screw heads 1/8 inch away from the wall to allow room for mounting the
phone. Be sure the wall is capable of supporting the weight of the phone, and use the proper type of anchoring
device for the wall material. No need to route the telephone cord through the hole of the wall mount adapter when
mounting directly on the wall.

Installing the Phone
Place the
mounting slots
over the pins on
the wall plate.

Battery Information
Battery Life
With average use, your handset battery provides approximately ten 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 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.
50
When the battery pack is very low, the phone is programmed to eliminate functions in
order to save power. When LOW BATTERY appears in the handset display and the
phone is in standby, none of the keys will operate. If you are on a call, complete your
conversation as quickly as possible, and return the handset to the cradle.
The battery pack needs to be charged when the empty battery icon appears.
Cleaning the Battery 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.
Caution: Do not use paint thinner, alcohol, or other chemical products.
Doing so may discolor the surface of the telephone and damage the finish.
Battery Replacement and Handling
With average use, your phone’s battery should last approximately one year. To order replacement batteries, please
contact Uniden’s Parts Department. The contact information is listed on the back cover page.
Caution:
• Use only battery pack BT-1008.
• Do not remove the batteries from the handset to charge them.
• Never throw the battery into a fire, disassemble, or heat them.
• Do not remove or damage the battery casing.

The FCC Wants You To Know
Radio Interference
I.C. Notice
Radio interference may occasionally cause buzzing and
humming in your cordless handset, or clicking noises in the
base. This interference is caused by external sources such
as TV, refrigerator, vacuum cleaner, fluorescent lighting, or
electrical storm. Your unit is NOT DEFECTIVE. If these noises
continue and are too distracting, please check around your
home to see what appliances may be causing the problem.
In addition, we recommend that the base not be plugged into
a circuit that also powers a major appliance because of the
potential for interference. Be certain that the antenna on the
unit is fully extended when needed. In the unlikely event that
you consistently hear other voices or distracting transmissions
on your phone, you may be receiving radio signals from
another cordless telephone or other source of interference.
If you cannot eliminate this type of interference, you need to
change to a different channel.
Finally, it should be noted that some cordless telephones
operate at frequencies that may cause interference to nearby
TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, the
base of the cordless telephone should not be placed 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.
Terminal Equipment
NOTICE: This equipment meets the applicable Industry
Canada Terminal Equipment Technical Specifications. This is
confirmed by the registration number. The abbreviation, IC,
before the registration number signifies that registration was
performed based on a Declaration of Conformity indicating that Industry Canada technical specifications were met. It does not
imply that Industry Canada approved the equipment.
NOTICE: The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this
terminal equipment is marked on the equipment itself. The REN
assigned to each terminal equipment provides an indication
of the maximum number of terminals allowed to be connected
to a telephone interface. The termination on an interface may
consist of any combination of devices subject only to the
requirement that the sum of the Ringer Equivalence Numbers
of all the devices does not exceed five.
Radio Equipment
The term “IC:” before the radio certification number only signifies
that Industry Canada technical specifications were met.
Precautions!
Cordless Telephone Privacy
Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this
device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must
accept any interference, including interference that may cause
undesired operation of the device. “Privacy of communications
may not be ensured when using this telephone.”
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.
