INTRODUCTION
EXS 2010
Thank you for choosing the Uniden EXS 2010 cordless telephone.
This phone is designed for reliability, long life, and outstanding

technology.
Note: Some illustrations in this manual may differ from the
actual unit for explanation purposes.

• Pulse / Tone Dialing
• Page
• 6 Hour Talk Time
• 10 Day Standby Time

Digital Spread Spectrum Technology utilizes a “wider
frequency band” vs. a “single narrow band” used in standard
digital transmissions. The result is a more secure conversation
with the clarity of digital sound, extended range, and minimal
interference from other cordless phone.
Random Code™ digital security automatically selects one of
over 65,000 codes for the handset and base.
These features enhance your phone’s security and also
prevent unauthorized calls as a result of your phone being
activated by other equipment.
The EXS 2010 features include AutoTalkTM and AutoStandbyTM
AutoTalk allows you to answer a call by just removing the
handset from the base so you don’t have to waste time
pushing buttons or flipping switches. AutoStandby allows you
hang up by simply returning the handset to the base.

This cordless telephone uses a digital security code to prevent
unauthorized access to your base unit. This security code prevents
other cordless handsets from making calls through your base unit.
A random security code will be assigned automatically between
your base unit and handset when you charge the battery pack for
the first time.

Direct wall plate mounting
If you don't have a standard wall plate, you can mount your phone
directly to the wall. Before doing this, consider the following:
• Avoid electrical cables, pipes, or other items behind the mounting
location, that could cause a hazard when inserting screws into
the wall.
• Try to mount your phone within 10 - 15 feet of a working phone
jack to avoid excessive cord lengths.
• Make sure the wall material is capable of supporting the weight of
the base and handset.
• Use #10 screws (minimum length of 1-3/8 inches) with anchoring
devices suitable for the wall material where the base unit will be
placed.
