Setting up the Phone
Do the following steps:
A. Choose the best location
C. Connect the base unit
B. Install the rechargeable battery pack into the handset
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.
A. Choose the best location
Before choosing a location for your new phone, read the INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS included in
the PRECAUTIONS AND IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS. 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
Choose a central location
Avoid personal computers
Avoid other cordless telephones
• 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, microwave
ovens, and fluorescent lighting.
• Be sure there is sufficient space to raise the base antenna to a vertical position.
• The base can be placed on a desk, tabletop, or mounted on a standard wall plate.

the battery or handset. Once you are certain that you have made a
good connection, then insert the battery pack into the battery
compartment. Do not pinch the wires.

a regular basis by
returning the handset to
the base after each
phone call.

Low battery alert
When the battery pack is very low and needs to be charged, the phone
is programmed to 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.
If the phone is in use, “ Low Battery” flashes and the handset
beeps. Complete your conversation as quickly as possible and return
the handset to the base unit for charging.
The last number dialed in the redial memory and the numbers stored in
the memory locations are retained for up to 30 minutes while you replace
the battery pack.
Cleaning the charging contacts
To maintain a good charge, it is important to clean the
charging contacts on both the handset and base unit once
a month. Use a dry cloth or pencil eraser to clean. If the
contacts become very dirty, using water only, dampen a
cloth to clean the charging contacts. Then make sure to
go back over the charging contacts with a dry cloth before
returning the handset to the base to charge.

Direct wall 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 5 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 (minimum length of 1-3/8 inches) with anchoring devices
suitable for the wall material where the base unit will be placed.
1) Insert two mounting screws into the wall, (with their appropriate
anchoring device), 3-15/16 inches apart. Allow about 1/8 of an inch
between the wall and screw heads for mounting the phone.
2) Refer to steps 1 through 7 above.

You must not connect your phone to:
• coin-operated systems
• most electronic key telephone systems
Range
Your new phone is designed to achieve the maximum possible range
by transmitting and receiving according to the highest specifications
set forth by the FCC. We have rated this phone to operate at a
maximum distance with the qualification that the range depends
upon the environment in which the telephone is used. Many factors
limit range, and it would be impossible to include all the variables in
our rating. The Maximum Range rating of this phone is meant to be
used as a means of comparison against other range claims.
Telephone Line Problems
The FCC has granted the telephone company the right to disconnect
service in the event that your phone causes problems on the
telephone line. Also, the telephone company may make changes in
facilities and services which may affect the operation of your unit.
However, your telephone company must give adequate notice in
writing prior to such actions to allow you time for making necessary
arrangements to continue uninterrupted service.
If you are having trouble with your telephone service, you must first
disconnect your phone to determine if it is the cause of your
problem. If you determine that it is the cause, you must leave it
disconnected until the trouble has been corrected.

Telephone Line Problems
The FCC has granted the telephone company the right to disconnect
service in the event that your phone causes problems on the
telephone line. Also, the telephone company may make changes in
facilities and services which may affect the operation of your unit.
However, your telephone company must give adequate notice in
writing prior to such actions to allow you time for making necessary
arrangements to continue uninterrupted service.
If you are having trouble with your telephone service, you must first
disconnect your phone to determine if it is the cause of your
problem. If you determine that it is the cause, you must leave it
disconnected until the trouble has been corrected.
• The location should be close to both a phone jack and continuous
power outlet. (A continuous power outlet is an AC outlet which
does not have a switch to interrupt its power.)
• Keep the base and handset away from sources of electrical noise
such as motors or fluorescent lighting.
• Be sure there is sufficient space to fully extend the base antenna.
• The base can be placed on a desk or tabletop or mounted on a
standard telephone wall plate.
• You should charge your new phone for 15-20 hours before
completing the installation or using the handset.
Telephone Line Outlets
There are two types of phone outlets:
Radio Interference
Modular Jack
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 antenna on the unit is fully
extended.
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.
Most phone equipment available now uses modular jacks. Phone cords
are fitted with a molded plastic connector which plugs into this type
of jack. If you do not have modular phone jacks, contact your local
telephone company for information about their installation.
More Than One Cordless Telephone
If you want to use more than one cordless telephone in your home,
they must operate on different channels. Press the channel key to
select a channel that provides the clearest communication.
Hardwired Jack
Some equipment is wired directly to a phone jack, and these types of
installations require a modular jack converter. This type of
installation is not difficult; however, you should contact your Uniden
telephone dealer or a telephone supply store for advice about the
proper adapter or converter for your particular situation.
Connecting the Telephone Cords
Consider these safety guidelines before connecting the telephone cords:
Caution!
• Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.
• Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals unless the
telephone line has been disconnected.
• Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.
Applying Power to the Base
This phone requires an AC outlet, without a switch to interrupt
power, and the included AC adapter. To relieve strain on the DC plug
when the phone is placed on a desk or table, wrap the power cord
around the strain relief notch on the back of the base.
NOTE:
Place the power cord so that it does not create a trip
hazard, or where it could become chafed and create a
fire or other electrical hazards.

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.
Installation Considerations
Selecting a Location
Before choosing a location for your new phone, there are some
important guidelines you should consider:
