D. Choose the dialing mode
If your dialing system is
Tone
Pulse
GETTING STARTED
Most phone systems use tone dialing which sends DTMF tones through the phone lines.
However some phone systems still use pulse dialing such as in rural areas. The default setting is tone dialing.
Depending on your dialing system, set the P U L S E - T O N E switch as follows:
Set the switch to
TONE
PULSE
• If you aren´t sure of your dialing system,
make a trial call with the PULSE-TONE switch set to TONE .
If the call connects, leave the switch as is; otherwise, set to P U L S E .
• If your phone system requires pulse dialing and you need to send DTMF tones for cer tain situations during a
call, you may "switch-over" to tone dialing. (Refer to "Tone Dialing Switch-over" on page 15.)
Mounting the Base Unit on a Wall
Setting the handset retainer clip for wall mounting
1) On the base unit, pull the handset retainer out of the slot. Rotate it clockwise
180 degrees.
2) Flip the retainer from front to back.
Slide it back into the slot so that the lip of the retainer is up and the ▼ is down.
The retainer holds the handset in place.
note
For 2 line
subscriptions,
• If the two phone
lines are in one
modular jack,
connect using TEL
LINE 1-2 jack.
• If the two phone
lines are on two
separate modular
jacks, connect
using both TEL
LINE 1-2 and TEL
LINE 2 jacks.

Tone Dialing Switch-over
Some telephone companies use equipment that require pulse dialing (sometimes referred to
as rotary dialing). If you need to enter tone dialing digits, you can switch-over to tone
dialing during the call. An example of this could be entering your bank account number after
you have called your bank. The digits of your bank account can be entered using DTMF tones.
Initially make your call with the pulse dialing mode. Once your call connects, press */t/tone. Enter the desired
number (like in example above the bank account number). These digits will be sent as tone dialing. This special
number can be stored in a memor y location. This is referred to as Chain Dialing (See page 22). Once the call
ends, the tone mode is canceled and pulse dialing mode resumes.
note
The tone feature
only applies when
the dial mode is set
to pulse.
Traveling Out-of-Range
During a call, as you begin to move your handset too far from your base unit, noise increases. If you pass the
range limits of the base unit, your call will terminate within 30 seconds.
If you encounter interference while using your phone, you can manually change the
channel for clearer operation. Interference can come from appliances or other phones
in your home. This function works only when the phone is use.The chan on th handset
allows you to choose between 40 dif ferent channels.
During the course of a conversation, if you hear static or noise which makes it difficult to
hear, press chan. The following screen appears and the phone changes to a different
channel. For more information on interference, refer to "Technical Information" on page 32.

Changes or modif ications to this product not expressly
approved by Uniden, or operation of this product in any way
other than as detailed by the owner’s manual, could void your
authority to operate this product. The equipment cannot be
used on public coin phone service provided by the telephone
company. Connection to par ty line service is subject to state
tarif fs. (Contact the state public utility commission, public
service commission or corporation commission for
information.) Below is some information that might concern
you while using your new phone.
Range
Your new phone is designed to achieve the maximum possible
range by transmitting and receiving according to the highest
specif ications set for th by the FCC. We have rated this phone
to operate at a maximum distance with the qualif ication 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

disconnect service in the event that your phone causes
problems on the telephone line. Also, the telephone company

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 f irst 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.
Radio Interference
More Than One Cordless Telephone
If you want to use more than one cordless telephone in your
home, they must operate on dif ferent channels. Press the
channel key to select a channel that provides the clearest
communication.
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 broadcasted
over the open airways. Because of the inherent physical
proper ties 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.
A D D I T I O N A L I N F O R M A T I O N [ 33 ]
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
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 cer tain 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 dif ferent 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 T V or VCR. If interference is experienced, moving
the cordless telephone far ther away from the T V or VCR will
of ten reduce or eliminate the interference.
