Caller ID
About caller ID
This product supports caller ID services that most local
telephone service companies provide. Depending on your
service subscription, you might see the caller’s number, or the
caller’s name and number from the telephone company after
CHRISTINE SMITH
the first or second ring. Caller ID allows you to see the name,
888-722-7702
number, date, and time of calls.
Information about caller ID with call waiting
10:01
11/23
Caller ID with call waiting lets you see the name and
telephone number of the caller before answering the
telephone, even while on another call.
It might be necessary to change your telephone service to
use this feature. Contact your telephone company 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.
There are fees for caller ID services. In addition, 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. The time and date are from the telephone company 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. To view call
log entries with numbers between 16 and 23 digits, you must save the entry to
the directory (see page 34)
NEW
AM
NOTE: You can use this product with regular caller ID service, or you can use this product’s
other features without subscribing to caller ID or combined caller ID with call waiting service.

Caller ID
Caller ID history
How the caller ID history (call log) works
The telephone stores caller ID information about the last 50
incoming calls in the telephone base. Entries are stored in
reverse chronological order. The phone deletes the oldest
entry when the log is full to make room for new calls. This
information is common to all handsets, so changes made using
any handset are reflected in all other handsets. If you answer a
call before the information appears on the screen, it does not
show in the caller ID history.
CHRISTINE SMITH
888-722-7702
NEW
10:01AM
11/23
Review the caller ID history to find out 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.
NOTES:
1. Only one handset can review the caller ID history at a time. If another handset tries to enter the
directory or caller ID history, it shows NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.
2. Each entry can have up to 24 digits for the phone number and 15 characters for the name. If
the phone number has more than 15 digits, only the last 15 digits appear. For call log entries
with numbers between 16 and 23 digits, in order to view the entire number, you must save
the entry to the directory (see page 34). If the phone number has more than 24 digits, it is not
saved or shown in the call log.
3. The caller ID information might not be available for every incoming call. The callers might
intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers.

Memory match
If the incoming telephone number exactly matches 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
phone company. The phone company usually delivers ten-digit phone
numbers (area code plus phone number). If the telephone number of the
caller does not exactly match a number in your directory, the name
appears the same from the phone company. For example, if the phone
company includes the area code and the directory number does not, the
name is the one which the phone company sends.
Missed (new) calls indicator
When a handset is in idle mode and has unreviewed calls, its
screen shows XX MISSED CALLS.
All unreviewed entries are counted as missed calls. Each time
you review a call log entry with the icon NEW, the number of
missed calls decreases by one.
If you do not want to review the missed calls one by one, but
you still want to keep them in the caller ID history, you can
press and hold
OFF/CLEAR for four seconds when the
handset is idle. All the entries in the caller ID history become
old (have been reviewed), and the missed calls counter shows 0.

Appendix F
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:
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.

DECT 6.0 digital technology
The AT&T DECT 6.0 products offer unsurpassed range performance and sound clarity. This is
achieved through a unique antenna design and advances in noise-filtering technology. An
independent laboratory has confirmed that AT&T DECT 6.0 products perform up to 45% better in
range competitions. Now calls can be taken in the basement, backyard and garage with exceptional
sound quality.
Telephone operating range
This cordless telephone operates within the maximum power allowed by the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC). Even so, this handset and telephone base can communicate
over only a certain distance — which can vary with the locations of the telephone base and
handset, the weather, and the construction of your home or office.
Redefining long range coverage and clarity
This telephone base comes with an antenna which gives much better clarity and covers a longer
range than before.
