your base unit and handset when you charge the battery pack for
the first time.
If you want to reset the security code, see page 47.
Make sure you have received the following items in the package.
If any of these items are missing or damaged, contact the Uniden

• Choose the dialing mode
Choose the best location
Before choosing a location for your new phone, read the
INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS included in the PRECAUTIONS
AND IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS brochure. Here are some
important guidelines you should consider:
Avoid heat sources, such as
radiators, air ducts, and sunlight
Avoid television sets
and other electronic
equipment
Avoid noise sources such as a window
by a street with heavy traffic
Avoid microwave ovens
Avoid excessive
moisture, extremely low
temperatures, dust,
mechanical vibration, or
shock
Avoid personal
computers
Choose a central location
Avoid other cordless
telephones
• You should charge your handset for more than 15-20 hours before
using the phone.
• The location should be close to both a phone jack and a continuous
power outlet which is not switchable.
• Keep the base and handset away from sources of electrical noise
such as motors and fluorescent lighting.
• Be sure there is sufficient space to raise the base antenna
fully vertical.
• The base can be placed on a desk, tabletop or mounted on a
standard wall plate.

is down. The
retainer holds the handset
in place.
Direct wall plate mounting
If you don't have a standard wall plate, you can mount your phone
directly to the wall. Before doing this, consider the following:
• Avoid electrical cables, pipes, or other items behind the mounting
location, that could cause a hazard when inserting screws into
the wall.
• Try to mount your phone within 10 - 15 feet of a working phone
jack to avoid excessive cord lengths.
• Make sure the wall material is capable of supporting the weight of
the base and handset.
• Use #10 screws with (minimum length of 1-3/8 inches) anchoring
devices suitable for the wall material where the base unit will be
placed.

Battery use time (per charge)
From fully charged
• 6 hours coutinuous use.
• 10 days when the handset is in the standby mode.

optimum performance, be
sure to return the handset
to the base unit after a
telephone call for
charging the battery.
When the battery charge becomes low
When the voltage of battery pack in the handset is very low and
needs to be charged, the phone is programmed to eliminate
functions in order to save power. If the battery charge becomes low,
“Low Battery” appears on the LCD. If the phone is in use, the
handset beeps. Complete your conversation as quickly as possible
and return the handset to the base unit for charging.
Cleaning the charging contacts
To maintain a good charge, it is important to clean the battery
contacts on the handset and base unit with a dry cloth about once a
month.
Do not use any liquids or solvents.
