You may need to change your phone service to use this feature. Contact your
phone service provider if :
•
You have both Caller ID and Call Waiting, but as separate services
(you may need combined service).
•
You have only Caller ID service, or only Call Waiting service.
•
You don’t subscribe to any Caller ID or Call Waiting services.
You can use this product with regular Caller ID service, and you can use this
product’s other features without subscribing to either Caller ID or combined
Caller ID with Call Waiting service.
There are fees for Caller ID services, and these services may not be available
in all areas.This product can provide information only if both you and the
caller are in areas offering Caller ID service, and if both telephone companies
use compatible equipment.

1
2. With the red and black wires at the bottom right
corner of the pack, angle the top of the battery
into the compartment, under the two ‘claws’.
Next, press the lower end of the battery pack
down, so it snaps in place, under the lower
claw. Now, plug the connector into the socket,
located below the battery. Slip the wires under
the wire guide, located below and to the left of
the socket.
3. Replace the battery cover by sliding it upwards.
2
4. If the new battery pack is not already charged,
place the Handset in the Base Unit, and allow
it to charge for 12 hours. After the initial charge,
a maintenance charge of 8 hours should be
sufficient. Maximum talk time is 5 hours on a full
charge. Maximum standby time is 5 days.

Examples of 1-Line and 2-Line Cords
RJ-11
One line
cord
RJ-14
2 line
cord
Your VT 20-2438 will work fine even if you only have one telephone line. We
recommend connecting the modular telephone cord to the jack labelled
LINE 1 / L1 + L2, located on the back of the Base Unit; in which case, you will be
using LINE 1. Here are steps for connecting 2 lines:
If you have 2 Lines coming out of a single wall jack:
Connect a 4-element (RJ14) modular phone cord to the telephone outlet and
the L1 / L1 + L2 jack on the back of the Base Unit.
If you have 2 Lines, each coming out of a separate wall jack:
Connect a modular phone cord from the telephone outlet you wish to designate as
your LINE 1, to the L1 / L1 + L2 jack on the back of the Base Unit. Next, connect
another modular phone cord from the remaining telephone outlet to the L2 jack
on the back of the Base Unit.
Data Port
Your VT 20-2438 has a Data Port on the back of the Base Unit.This port provides
an easy way to connect your fax machine, laptop computer, modem or other
telephone device for direct access to LINE 2.
The Data Port only provides access to Line 2, so you must have an active line
connected to the LINE 2 jack on the bottom of the Base Unit. Connect a modular
phone cord from the Data Port (look for the jack marked DATA on the back of the
Base Unit) to your fax, laptop, etc.
NOTE: While the Data Port is in use, accidental use of Line 2 by a parallel
phone, your VT 20-2438, or a Call Waiting ID alert may interrupt the data
transmission.
Checking for Dial Tone
After the battery pack is charged, pick up the Handset and press a LINE key.
The LINE indicator should light up, and you should hear a dial tone; if not,
see IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY.
Tone/Pulse Selection
Your VT 20-2438 is preset for TONE dialing. To change the dialing mode:
1. At the idle (on hook) Handset, press MENU.
2. Press the SCROLL key until DIAL MODE appears, then press SELECT.

Voice Messages (for Voicemail service from your local phone company)
Your VT 20-2438 is designed to work with most local and regional telephone
service providers’ Voice Messaging service, providing alerts on both the Handset

Voice Messaging is a subscription service, available through most local and
regional service providers, for a monthly fee. Some service providers may not
offer compatatible Voicemail service. Contact your local telephone company
for more information.
The idle Handset will display NO MESSAGES on the top line when there are
no new (unplayed) messages in your voicemail service. When a caller leaves
a message in your voice mailbox, the MESSAGE light on the Base Unit (there
is a light for each line) will illuminate. In addition, the Handset will display,
for example:
L1(&L2)MESSAGES
