You can use this telephone handsfree when you install
any VTech 2.5 mm headset, purchased separately.
Plug the headset into the jack located on the left side of
the handset (under the small rubber flap). Do not force the

Communications Commission (FCC). Even so, this
handset and base can communicate only over a certain
distance - which can vary with the locations of the base
and handset, the weather, and the construction of your
home or office.
If you receive a call while you are out of range, the
handset might not ring or if it does ring, the call might not
connect well when you press TALK. Move closer to the
base, then press TALK to answer the call.
If you move out of range during a phone conversation, you
might hear noise or interference. To improve reception,
move closer to the base.
If you move out of range without pressing OFF, the phone
will be left off the hook. To hang up properly, walk back
into range, periodically pressing OFF.

I cannot dial out.
• Make sure you have a dial tone before dialing. The handset may take a second or two to find the
base and produce a dial tone. This is normal. Wait an extra second before dialing.
• Make sure your phone is set to the correct dial mode for the type of service that you have (pulse or
touch tone). Refer to the dial mode section of this user’s manual.
•If the other phones in your home are having the issue, the problem is in your wiring or local service.
Contact your local telephone company.
• Eliminate any background noise. Noise from a television, radio or other appliance may cause the phone
not to dial out properly. If you cannot eliminate the background noise, first try muting the handset before
dialing, or dialing from another room in your home with less background noise.

• Other cordless phones and 802.11 wireless routers that are used for home computer networks both use internal
radios to communicate. The radios may interfere with one another. You can improve the performance of your
cordless phones and your router by:
a. positioning your new phone as far away as possible from any other existing cordless telephone system that
is already installed in your home to avoid the two systems interfering with each other.
b. positioning your telephone base as far as possible from your router, computer or any other computer
devices.
c. selecting channels four through 10 for your router (refer to your router’s user manual for more information).
• Other electronic products can cause interference with your cordless phone. Try installing your phone as far
away from these types of electronic devices as possible: wireless routers, radios, radio towers, pager towers,
cell phones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions, personal computers, kitchen appliances and other cordless
phones.
• Microwaves operate on the same frequency as your phone. It is normal to experience static on your phone while
the microwave is running. Do not install this phone in the same outlet or near the microwave.
•If your phone is plugged in with a modem or surge protector, plug the phone (or modem/surge protector) into a
different location. If this solves the problem, re-locate your phone or modem farther apart from one another, or
use a different surge protector.
• Relocate your phone to a higher location. The phone will likely get better reception not installed in a low area.
