www.uniden.com
S e t t i n g u p t h e P ho n e [ 6 ]
Setting up the Phone
•Metal and reinforced
concrete may affect
cordless telephone
performance.
• The location should be close to both a phone jack and a continuous power outlet (one
which is not connected to a switch).
• The base and handset should be kept away from sources of electrical noise such as motors,
Microwave ovens, and fluorescent lighting.
• For better reception, place the base as high as possible.
• The base should be placed in an open area for optimum range and reception.
• If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to your phone line, be sure
that installing the system does not disable your alarm equipment.
• If you have questions about what will disable alarm equipment, contact your telephone
company or a qualified installer.
• The base should be placed in an open area for optimum range and reception.

Liquid Damage
Moisture and liquid may damage your cordless phone. Follow the steps below if your phone gets wet:
Case
If the exterior plastic housing on the handset or
base is exposed to moisture or liquid.
If moisture or liquid has entered the plastic housing
(i.e. liquid can be heard in the phone or liquid has
entered the handset battery compartment or vent
openings on the base).
Wipe off the liquid, and use as normal.
Handset:
1) Remove the battery cover and leave it off for ventilation.
2) Disconnect the battery pack. Leave the battery cover off and the battery pack
disconnected for at least 3 days.
3) Once the handset is completely dry, reconnect the battery pack and the battery
cover.
4) Recharge the handset's battery pack for 20 hours before using.
Base:
1) Disconnect the AC adapter from the base, cutting off electrical power.
2) Disconnect the telephone cord from the base.
3) Let dry for at least 3 days.
IMPORTANT: You must unplug the telephone line while recharging the battery
packs to avoid charge interruption.
CAUTION: DO NOT use a microwave oven to speed up the drying process. This will
cause permanent damage to the handset, base and the microwave oven.
After following these steps, if your cordless telephone does not work, please call
our Customer Service Hotline at 1-800-297-1023.

corporation commission for information.
This equipment is hearing aid compatible.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Should you experience trouble with this equipment, please contact
Uniden customer service at 800-297-1023. If the equipment is causing
harm to the telephone network, the telephone company may request
that you disconnect the equipment until the problem is resolved.

the battery, and disconnect the battery before shipping this product.
The FCC Wants You To Know
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and the
requirements adopted by the ACTA. On the bottom of this equipment is
a label that contains, among other information, a product identifier in
the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. If requested, this number must be
provided to the telephone company.
An applicable Universal Service Order Codes (USOC) certification for the
jacks used in this equipment is provided (i.e., RJ11C) in the packaging
with each piece of approved terminal equipment.
A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring
and telephone network must comply with the applicable FCC Part 68
rules and requirements adopted by the ACTA. A compliant telephone
cord and modular plug is provided with this product. It is designed to
be connected to a compatible modular jack that is also compliant. See
installation instructions for details.
The REN is used to determine the number of devices that may be
connected to a telephone line. Excessive RENs on a telephone line may
result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In
most but not all areas, the sum of RENs should not exceed five (5.0).
To be certain of the number of devices that may be connected to a line,
as determined by the total RENs, contact the local telephone company.
For products approved after July 23, 2001, the REN for this product is
part of the product identifier that has the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX.
The digits represented by ## are the REN without a decimal point (e.g.,
03 is a REN of 0.3). For earlier products, the REN is separately shown
on the label.
If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone
company will notify you in advance that temporary discontinuance of
service may be required. But if advance notice isn't practical, the
telephone company will notify the customer as soon as possible. Also,
you will be advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC if you
believe it is necessary.
The telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment,
operations or procedures that could affect the operation of the
equipment. If this happens the telephone company will provide
advance notice in order for you to make necessary modifications to
maintain uninterrupted service.
[71] Precautions & Warranty
NOTICE: According to telephone company reports, AC electrical surges,
typically resulting from lightning strikes, are very destructive to
telephone equipment connected to AC power sources. To minimize
damage from these types of surges, a surge arrestor is recommended.
Changes or modifications 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.
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject
to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful
interference, and (2) This device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
Privacy of communications, may not be ensured when using this phone.
To insure the safety of users, the FCC has established criteria for the
amount of radio frequency energy various products may produce
depending on their intended usage. This product has been tested and
found to comply with the FCC's exposure criteria. For body worn
operation, the FCC RF exposure guidelines were also met when used
with the Uniden accessories supplied or designed for this product. Use
of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure
guidelines and should be avoided.
Radio Interference
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 certain 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 different channel.
www.uniden.com
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 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.
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 broadcast over the open airways.
Because of the inherent physical properties 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.
