Installation
Charging the Battery Pack
tCleaning the Battery Contacts
The rechargeable Nickel-Cadmium battery pack must be fully
charged before using your phone for the first time. Before
plugging the phone line into your new phone, you must
charge the battery for approximately 15-20 hours
without interruption.
To maintain a good
charge, it is important
to clean all battery
contacts on the handset
and base about once a
month. Use a dry cloth or
other contact cleaner.
Do not use any liquids
or solvents.
1. Remove the handset battery cover.
2. Plug the battery’s
cable into the handset
and place the battery
pack inside the
battery
compartment.
Selecting a Location
Before choosing a location for your new phone, there are some
important guidelines you should consider:
• The location should be close to both a phone jack and
continuous power outlet.
The plastic connectors will fit together only one
way. Make sure the battery’s connector is
properly aligned. Use only the Uniden battery
pack (model BT-905).
A continuous power outlet is an AC outlet
which does not have a switch to interrupt its
power.
3. Replace the battery cover.
• Keep the base unit and handset away
tCharging the Handset
•
Place the handset on the
base to charge. (The
handset can charge in
either the face-up or
face-down position.)
Important: Do not place the power cord in an
area where it may create a trip hazard or
become chafed and create a fire or
electrical hazard.
tLow Battery Indicator
When the battery pack in the handset
is low and needs to be charged, the
batt LED flashes every 3 seconds.
Setting the Dial Mode Switch
If this occurs while you are on the
phone, you will hear an alert tone.
Complete your call as quickly as
possible and return the handset to
the base for charging.
Place the switch in the
T position for tone dialing, or
the P position for
pulse dialing.

tMounting Directly on a Wall
2. Plug the AC adapter into the base.

phone directly on a wall. Before mounting your cordless
telephone, consider the following:
3. Place the AC adapter cord inside the left molded channel
cord holder.
4. Plug one end of the long telephone cord into the TEL LINE
jack on the base.
Select a location away from electrical cables, pipes, or other items
behind the mounting location that could cause a hazard when
inserting screws into the wall.

cord holder.
Make sure the wall material is capable of supporting the weight of
the base and handset; otherwise, damage to the unit could result.

firmly seated.
Use #10 screws (minimum length of 1 3/8 inches) with
anchoring devices suitable for the wall material where the base
will be placed.

wall jack. (Remember, the phone must be fully charged
before you can use it.)

and screw heads for mounting the phone.
8. Plug the AC adapter into a standard 120V AC wall outlet that is
not controlled by a wall switch.

Entering a Pause in Memory Dialing
One-Touch Dialing
If you would like to use a phone number stored in memory to
access voice mail, for example, you can store a pause in the phone
number sequence.
Your phone is equipped with three “One-Touch Priority” keys for
instant dialing (m1, m2, and m3). You cannot store phone
numbers directly into m1, m2, and m3. They are only used
to dial phone numbers stored into memory locations 1, 2, and 3
on the keypad.
To use this function, follow steps 1 and 2 in “Storing a Number
in Memory,” then press the pause button on the handset to place
a pause in the phone number sequence.
1. To instantly dial phone numbers stored in memory locations
1, 2, or 3, simply press m1, m2, or m3. (There is no need to
press talk, the phone will automatically dial.)
Remember, the phone number you wish to
store cannot have more than 16 digits,
including the pause. (The pause button
counts as one digit.)
2. If no phone number was stored in memory locations 1, 2, or 3
on the keypad, pressing m1, m2, or m3 will do nothing.
Follow the remaining steps in the “Storing a Number in Memory”
section to complete the operation.
Chain Dialing
Storing Mixed Tone/Pulse Numbers
After dialing a number you may be requested to enter a special
access code, for example, when performing a banking transaction.
If your phone is set up for pulse dialing, you can store a mixed
mode number (up to 16 digits) to easily access long
distance services.
1. Store the access code into one of the memory locations (0-9).
2. Dial the main number.
1. Remove the handset from the base and press mem. The talk
LED flashes and you hear a beep.
3. Press mem and the memory location of the access code at the
appropriate time.
2. Enter the number to be dialed in pulse mode.
Erasing a Stored Number
3. Press the */tone button on the handset. The */tone button
counts as one digit and enters a pause.

4. Enter the number(s) to be dialed in tone mode.

5. Press mem and a number (0-9) on the keypad for the memory
location you wish to use. You hear a long beep and the talk
LED goes out.
3. Press the memory location number (0-9) you want to clear.
You hear a long beep confirming that you have erased
the number.
Dialing a Stored Number
Replacing a Stored Number
To dial a phone number stored in memory, press talk, then press
mem and the memory location (0-9). Your phone will dial the
stored number.
Remember, your EXP 6900 phone has 10 memory locations,
represented by the numbers 0-9 on the keypad. If you store a
phone number in one of these locations, then attempt to store a
different number in the same location later, the new number will
replace the previous one.
If you select a memory location that does
not have a stored number, the handset will
beep rapidly and the phone will not dial.
