Changing from Tone to Pulse Dialing
Phones can communicate with the telephone network in two ways:
tone (DTMF) or pulse dialing. If you know your phone company uses
pulse dialing or the test call for line 1 did not work, follow these steps:

2. Use UP or DOWN to highlight Global Setup, then press OK .
3. Your phone prompts you to select a line and Line 1 is highlighted.
Press OK .
4. Use UP or DOWN to highlight Dial Mode, then press OK .
5. Highlight Pulse, then press OK . The phone sounds a confirmation
tone. Try making another test call using line 1.
If your test call on line 2 did not connect, follow the same
process, but in step 3, press DOWN to highlight Line 2, then press
OK .
If you use pulse dialing and you need to send DTMF tones during a
call (if you're using an automated response system, for example),
press to temporarily switch to tone dialing. When the call ends, the
phone automatically returns to pulse dialing mode.
Attaching the Belt Clip
Line up the holes on each side of the handset. Insert the belt clip into
the holes on each side of 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.

Entering Text on Your Phone
When you want to enter text into your phone (for example, a name
in the phonebook), use the twelve-key dial pad to enter the letters
printed on the number keys. Here's how it works:
 The phone enters the letters in the order they appear on the key.
For example, if you press the number key 2 once, the phone
enters the letter A. Press 2 twice for B, and three times for C.
 If you press the key again after the last letter, the phone starts the
same letter sequence with small letters. If you press 2 four times
in a row, the phone enters a (small letter). Press 2 five times for b,
and six times for c.
 If you see the icon [Aa] in the display, the phone enters capital
letters first (A B C), then small letters (a b c), then the number on
the key (2). The icon [aA] means the phone starts at the small
letters, so it enters small letters first, then the number on the key,
then capital letters.
 The phone automatically uses a capital letter for the first letter and
any letter right after a space; all other times, it uses small letters.
 If two letters in a row use the same number key, enter the first
letter, then use CALLER ID/RIGHT to move the cursor to the next
position to enter the second letter.

handsets; any option that is available only for the base or handset is
noted in the description.
The Handset and Base Setup Menu
When you open the menu on a handset, this menu is called Handset
Setup. On the base, this menu is called Base Setup. Each of these
options can be set separately for each station. (A station can be any
cordless handset or the base.)
Menu option:

Ringer Tones
(Handset only) See the ring tones the handset is using
as the main ring tone for each line. To change the tone,
select the line, then choose a ring tone from the list. (As
you highlight each ring tone, the phone plays a sample
of the tone. When you hear the tone you want, press
OK .)
Personal Ring

have Caller ID, this feature lets you assign special ring
tones to anyone in your phonebook: this handset will

feature. You can set the clock from the base or any cordless handset.
1. Open the menu and select Clock Setup.
2. Use the numbers on the twelve-key dial pad to enter the date.
3. Move the cursor to the next line, then use the dial pad to enter the
time.
4. Press to switch between AM and PM; when you're finished, press

The Global Setup Menu
The settings on this menu are separate for each line: changing the
settings for line 1 will not affect line 2, and vice versa. However, the
settings for each line apply to all stations whenever they use that line.
Before changing these settings, make sure the phone is in standby
and all handsets are within range of the base. (Only one station at a
time can change these settings.)
When you select the Global Setup menu, the phone prompts you to

to give you some useful multi-station features. (A station can be any
cordless handset or the base.) You must have at least one accessory
handset to use the features in this section.
Expanding Your Phone
 Your base supports a total of ten accessory handsets and 2
MULTIRANGETM chargers, including any that were supplied with
your phone. It is compatible with both the DCX400 handset with
charger and the DRX402 handset with MULTIRANGETM charger.
 Your base might be compatible with other Uniden accessory
handsets: please visit our website for a list of compatible handsets.
 Accessory handsets must be registered to the base before you
can use them. Handsets that aren't registered display a Handset
not registered message. For instructions on registering handsets
to this base, see page 40 or refer to the manual that came with the
accessory handset.
 Any accessory handsets that came packaged with the base are
already registered to that base for you.
 If a handset was previously registered to a base, you have to reset
it so you can register it to a new base (see page 40 for DCX400 and
DRX402 handsets).
Using Multi-Station Conference Calling

 Try adjusting the earpiece volume.
Noise or Static On The Line
Interference is the most common cause of noise or static on a
cordless phone. Here are some common sources of interference:

Here are some hints for when the static is...
on 1 handset or in 1 location:
on all handsets or in all locations:
- Check nearby for one of the common
interference sources.
- Try moving the handset away from a
suspected source, or try moving the
suspected source so it’s not between
the handset and the base.
- Try moving closer to the base. There
is always more noise at the edges
of the base's range. If the handset
displays an Out of Range message,
you need to move closer to the base.
- Check near the base for the
source of interference.
- Try moving the base away from a
suspected source, or turn off the
source if possible.
- If the base has an adjustable
antenna, try raising the antenna
so it stands straight up.
- If you have any service that uses
the phone line, you might need a
filter (see below).
