You can enter a four-digit number (0000-9999) to allow remote
access to your handset mailbox from any touch-tone telephone. Each
handset has a different access code. Unless you change it, the access
code is in numerical order for each handset (0001 for handset 1,
0002 for handset 2 ������������������������������������������������
and so on). To change the access code, you must
choose a four-digit number that is not used by any other registered
handset or base (0000 by default).

You can receive notification calls to your cell phone or paging device
after each new phone call message has been recorded to the handset
mailbox. You can remotely access the message from a touch-tone
telephone (see page 65). To receive notification calls, you must save
your telephone number on the handset, and then set the system
to call that number after it finishes recording a message. It is best
to enter a telephone number that has caller ID service. When you
receive a notification call you will only hear silence. The silence will
last for about 15 seconds and then the call ends. If no one picks
up the call within three rings, the telephone base stops calling it.
The system only calls the alert number once. If your paging device
is busy, not available or off during the call, you will ����������������

Directory
About the directory
Use the directory to store names and phone numbers. Directory
entries are not shared with the telephone base or other extensions.
Each handset has its own directory.
Capacity
The directory in each handset is independent from all other
handsets. In other words, changes made to the directory on any
handset apply only to that particular handset.
Each directory can store up to 100 entries, with a maximum of 16
alphanumeric characters (including spaces) for names and 32 digits for
telephone numbers. Directory entries are sorted in alphabetical order.
If all memory locations are in use, the screen displays Memory is
full. You cannot store a new number until an existing number is
deleted. If you try to view the directory entries when there are no
entries, the screen displays Directory empty.
Exit the directory
On a handset, press

Caller ID
About caller ID (call log)
This telephone supports caller ID services offered by most telephone
service providers. Depending on your service subscription, you might
see the caller’s number, or the caller’s name and number from the
telephone service provider after the first or second ring. Caller ID
allows you to see the name, number, date and time of calls.
Information about caller ID with call waiting
Caller ID with call waiting lets you see the name
and telephone number of the caller before
answering the telephone, and while on another call.
CHRISTINE SMITH
888 722 7702
11:28AM 03/24 new
There are fees for caller ID services. In addition,
Edit
this service might be called different names (such
as caller ID with visual call waiting) by different telephone service
providers and might not be available in all areas.
Del
It might be necessary to change your telephone service to use this
feature. Contact your telephone service provider if:
• You have both caller ID and call waiting, but as separate services
(you might need to combine these services).
• You have only caller ID service, or only call waiting service.
• You don’t subscribe to caller ID or call waiting services.
This product can provide information only if both you and the caller
are in areas offering caller ID service and if both telephone service
providers use compatible equipment. The time and date are from the
telephone service provider along with the call information.
Caller ID information might not be available for every incoming
call. Callers may intentionally block their names and/or telephone
numbers.
NOTES:
1. You can use this telephone with regular caller ID service, or you can use this
telephone’s other features without subscribing to either caller ID or combined caller
ID with call waiting service.
2. The format of telephone numbers displayed depends on the home and local area codes
you set on the base.

Caller ID
Caller ID history
How caller ID history (call log) works
The handset stores caller ID information for the last 50 incoming calls.
Entries are stored in reverse chronological order. The phone deletes
the oldest entry when the log is full to make room for new calls.
Each extension has an independent caller ID history. Deleting the
caller ID history on any one extension does not affect the caller ID
history on other extensions.
If you answer a call before the information appears on the screen, it
does not show in the caller ID history.
Review the caller ID history to determine who called, to easily return
the call, or to copy the caller’s name and number into your directory.
XX Missed call(s) appears if there are new call log
entries (including missed and unreviewed calls).
Call log empty appears if there are no records in the
call log.

If you subscribe to caller ID service, this phone automatically resets

NOTES:
1. Caller ID information might not be available for every incoming call. The callers might
intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers.
2. Each entry can store up to 32 digits for the telephone number and 16 characters for the
name. If the telephone number has more than 16 but less than or equal to 24 digits,
only the last 16 digits appear. If the telephone number has more than 24 digits, only the
9th to 24th digits (16 digits) appear. In order to view the entire number, you must first
save the entry to the Directory (see page 56). For instructions on viewing the digits, see
the note on page 49. If the telephone number has more than 32 digits, it is not saved or
shown in the call log.

Caller ID
Caller ID operation
Memory match
If the incoming telephone number is an exact match with a telephone
number in your directory, the name that appears on the screen
matches the corresponding name in your directory.
For example, if Christine Smith calls, her name appears as Chris if this
is how you entered it into your directory.
NOTE: The number you see on your caller ID is in the format from the telephone
service provider. It usually delivers 10-digit telephone numbers (area code plus
telephone number). The telephone system ignores the area code when searching
for a match and displays the name of the first corresponding number from the
directory.
Missed (new) calls indicator
When a handset is idle and has unreviewed calls, its screen shows
XX Missed call(s) and the CID softkey flashes.
All unreviewed entries are identified as missed calls.
Each time you review a call log entry with the icon
new, the number of missed calls decreases by one.
When all the entries in the caller ID history become
old (have been reviewed), the system removes the
missed calls alert from the display.

Answering system
Handset voicemail box (answering system)
Each handset has a private voicemail box that is different from the
general mailbox on the base. The voicemail messages for each
handset can be accessed from that handset or telephone base.
Answering system and voicemail
Your telephone has separate indicators for two different types of
voice messages: those left on its built-in answering system and those
left at your service provider’s voicemail. Your telephone’s built-in
answering system messages and voicemail messages are separate.
Each alerts you to new messages differently.
• If you turn on the COVM feature (see COVM on
1:Handset 1
COVM L1
page 36 for more information) and the COVM icon
New messages
12:00PM 12/31
displays on the handset screen, your telephone
M.box
CID
service provider is indicating that it has new
voicemail for you. To listen to your voicemail, you typically dial
an access number provided by your telephone service provider,
followed by a security code or PIN.
• To listen to messages recorded on your digital answering system,
press the M.box softkey on the handset.
Some service providers bundle or combine multiple services like
voicemail and call waiting, so you may not be aware that you have
voicemail. To check what services you have and how to access them,
contact your telephone service provider.
You can use your telephone answering system and voicemail
together by setting your built-in answering system to answer before
voicemail answers. To learn how to program your voicemail settings,
contact your telephone service provider. If you are on a call, or if
the answering system is busy recording a message and you receive
another call, the second caller can leave a voicemail message by
following the instruction below.
Set your answering system to answer calls at least two rings earlier
than your voicemail is set to answer. For example, if your voicemail
answers after six rings, set your answering system to answer after
four rings. Some voicemail providers may program the delay before
58
Answering system
answering calls in seconds instead of rings. In this case, allow six
seconds per ring when determining the appropriate setting.
Setting your system to automatically answer calls
On the base you can set each of the four lines to automatically
answer incoming calls in two different ways. See the SB67118 manual
for more information.
General mailbox:
The called line rings on every extension for each incoming call. If
there is no answer, the caller is prompted to leave a message in the
general mailbox, which a person at any handset can review. The
general mailbox stores incoming messages, memos, and recorded
calls.
Auto attendant:
The called line for each incoming call flashes on every extension, but
does not ring. Instead, the auto attendant answers. The caller can
specify an extension or leave a general mailbox message. When the
auto attendant directs a call to an extension but it is not answered,
the auto attendant prompts the caller to leave a message for that
extension or try another extension.
Record announcement
The announcement is the greeting callers hear when calls are
answered by the handset mailbox. You can record a personal
announcement up to two minutes long. (page 23)
Answering system capacity
The maximum recording time of all handsets and base is 180
minutes. The actual recording time depends on individual message
characteristics. Individual messages can be up to three minutes.
Messages remain available for review until you delete them.
Each recorded announcement requires system memory, so we suggest
recording a brief announcement in order to leave more space for
messages.

Setting your system to automatically answer calls
NOTE: You cannot record an announcement when the telephone system is out of

Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
•
Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so you must treat it
with care.
•
•
•
Avoid rough treatment.
Place the handset down gently.
Save the original packing materials to protect your telephone if you ever need to
ship it.
Avoid water
•
You can damage your telephone if it gets wet. Do not use the handset in the rain, or
handle it with wet hands. Do not install the telephone base near a sink, bathtub or
shower.
Electrical storms
•
Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic
equipment. For your own safety, take caution when using electric appliances during
storms.
Cleaning your telephone
•
Your telephone has a durable plastic casing that should retain its luster for many
years. Clean it only with a soft cloth slightly dampened with water or a mild soap.
•
Do not use excess water or cleaning solvents of any kind.
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used when you are wet
or standing in water. If the telephone base should fall into water, DO NOT RETRIEVE IT
UNTIL YOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE CORDS FROM THE WALL.
Then pull the unit out by the unplugged cords.
69
Appendix

Appendix
Important safety information
Especially about cordless telephones
•
Privacy: The same features that make a cordless telephone convenient create
some limitations. Telephone calls are transmitted between the telephone base and
the handset by radio waves, so there is a possibility that your cordless telephone
conversations could be intercepted by radio receiving equipment within range of
the cordless handset. For this reason, you should not think of cordless telephone
conversations as being as private as those on corded telephones.
•
Electrical power: The telephone base of this cordless telephone must be connected
to a working electrical outlet which is not controlled by a wall switch. Calls cannot
be made from the handset if the telephone base is unplugged, switched off or if the
electrical power is interrupted.
•
Potential TV interference: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that may
cause interference to TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, do
not place the telephone base of the cordless telephone 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.
•
Rechargeable batteries: This product contains nickel-metal hydride rechargeable
batteries. Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to create a short circuit
with conductive material such as rings, bracelets, and keys. The battery or conductor
may overheat and cause harm. Observe proper polarity between the battery and the
battery charger.
•
Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries: Dispose of these batteries in a safe
manner. Do not burn or puncture. Like other batteries of this type, if burned or
punctured, they could release caustic material which could cause injury.
The RBRC™ Seal means that the manufacturer is voluntarily
participating in an industry program to collect and recycle nickel-metal
hydride rechargeable batteries when taken out of service within the
United States. These batteries may be taken to a participating local
retailer of replacement batteries or recycling center. Or you may call 1
(800) 8-BATTERY for locations accepting spent Ni-MH batteries.
Precautions for users of implanted cardiac pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to digital cordless telephones):
Wireless Technology Research, LLC (WTR), an independent research entity, led
a multidisciplinary evaluation of the interference between portable wireless
telephones and implanted cardiac pacemakers. Supported by the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration, WTR recommends to physicians that:
71
Appendix
Important safety information
Pacemaker patients
Should keep wireless telephones at least six inches from the pacemaker.
Should NOT place wireless telephones directly over the pacemaker, such as in a breast
pocket, when it is turned ON.
Should use the wireless telephone at the ear opposite the pacemaker.
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to bystanders with pacemakers from other
persons using wireless telephones.
Especially about telephone answering systems
Two-way recording: This unit does not sound warning beeps to inform the other party
that the call is being recorded. To ensure that you are in compliance with any federal
or state regulations regarding recording a telephone call, you should start the recording
process and then inform the other party that you are recording the conversation.

• Do not install this phone near a microwave
oven or on the same electrical outlet. You
might experience decreased performance
while the microwave oven is operating.
• If you plug your phone in with a modem
or surge protector, plug the phone (or
modem/surge protector) into a different
location. If this does not solve the problem,
relocate your phone or modem farther apart
from one another, or use a different surge
protector.
• Relocate your telephone base to a higher
location. The phone might have better
reception when installed in a high area.
• If the other phones in your building are
having the same problem, contact your
telephone service provider (charges may
apply).
• Excessive background noise will cause
a speakerphone to fade in and out. Try
controlling the background noise by
turning off any audio devices near the
speakerphone. Also, try to avoid interrupting
the person at the other end of the
conversation while they are speaking. If
background noise cannot be controlled, you
should stop speakerphone operation and
return to normal handset mode.
87
Appendix
Troubleshooting
• When using a speakerphone, controlling
background noise in your environment is
essential. While you are listening to your
party, press MUTE to temporarily turn your
microphone off. When it is your turn to
speak, remember to press MUTE again to
turn the microphone on.
The charge light is
off.
• Make sure you plug the power and line
cords in correctly and securely.
• Unplug the electrical power. Wait for 15
seconds, then plug it back in. Allow up to
one minute for the cordless handset and
telephone base to reset.
• Clean the cordless handset and telephone
base charging contacts each month with a
pencil eraser or cloth.
My caller ID isn’t
working.
• Caller ID is a subscription service. You
must subscribe to this service from your
telephone service provider for this feature
to work on your phone.
• The caller must be calling from an area that
supports caller ID.
• Both your and your caller’s telephone
service providers must use caller ID
compatible equipment.
• If you subscribe to high-speed Internet
service (digital subscriber line - DSL)
through your telephone lines, you must
install a DSL filter between the telephone
line cord and the telephone wall jack. The
filter prevents noise and caller ID problems
resulting from DSL interference. Please
contact your DSL service provider for more
information about DSL filters.

Appendix
Troubleshooting
System does not
receive caller ID
when on a call.
• Make sure you subscribe to caller ID with
call waiting features from your telephone
service provider. Caller ID features works
only if both you and the caller are in
areas offering caller ID service, and if both
telephone service providers use compatible
equipment.
The answering
system is recording
incomplete
messages.
• If a caller leaves a very long message,
part of it may be lost when the system
disconnects the call after three minutes.
• If the caller pauses for longer than six
seconds, the system stops recording and
disconnects the call.
• If the system’s memory becomes full during
a message, the system stops recording and
disconnects the call.
• If the caller’s voice is very soft, the system
may stop recording and disconnects the
call.
I have difficulty
hearing
messages.
• Press VOLUME to increase speaker or
listening volume on a handset.
System does
not respond
to remote
commands.
• Make sure to enter your remote access code
correctly (see page 20).
• Make sure you are calling from a touch-tone
phone. When you dial a number, you should
hear tones. If you hear clicks, the phone
is not a touch-tone telephone and cannot
activate the answering system.
89
Appendix
Troubleshooting
• The answering system may not detect
the remote access code while your
announcement is playing. Try waiting until
the announcement is over before entering
the code.
• There may be interference on the phone
line you are using. Press dial pad keys
firmly.
System does
not record
messages.
• Make sure the auto attendant is on. Please
refer to the Turn the auto attendant on
section in the SB67118 telephone base
manual.
• Make sure the memory of the answering
system is not full. Please refer to the
Remaining space section in the SB67118
telephone base manual. When the answering
system memory is full, it does not record
new messages until some old messages are
deleted.
• If you subscribe to voicemail service, change
the number of rings so that your answering
system answers before your voicemail
answers. To determine how many rings
activate your voicemail, contact your local
telephone service provider.
• If there is a fax machine connected to the
same telephone line, try disconnecting the
fax machine. If that solves the problem,
consult your fax machine documentation for
information on compatibility with answering
systems.

Appendix
Troubleshooting
Outgoing
announcement is
not clear.
• When you record your announcement, make
sure you speak in a normal tone of voice,
about nine inches from the telephone base.
• Make sure there is no background noise (TV,
music, etc.) while recording.
I cannot retrieve
voicemail
messages.
• Your telephone has both a built-in
answering system and voicemail indication.
They are independent features and each
alerts you to new messages differently
(page 57). If you subscribe to voicemail
service from your telephone service provider
(charges may apply), contact your telephone
service provider for more information on
how to access your voicemail.
Common cure
for electronic
equipment.
If the telephone does not respond normally,
try putting the cordless handset in the
charger. If it does not seem to respond, do the
following (in the order listed):
• Disconnect the power to the telephone
base.
• Disconnect the cordless handset battery,
and spare battery, if applicable.
• Wait a few minutes.
• Connect power to the telephone base.
• Reinstall the battery, and place the cordless
handset into the charger.
• Wait for the cordless handset to re-establish
its connection with the telephone base.
Allow up to one minute for this to take
place.
