Setting up the Phone
Do the following steps:
If your home has
specially wired alarm
equipment connected to
the telephone line, be
sure that installing the
system does not disable
your alarm equipment.
If you have questions
about what will disable
your alarm equipment,
contact your telephone
company or a qualified
installer.
A. Choose the best location
B. Install the rechargeable battery pack
into the handset
C. Connect the base unit
D. Choose the dialing mode
A. Choose the best location
Before choosing a location for your new phone, read the INSTALLATION
CONSIDERATIONS included in the PRECAUTIONS AND IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS. Here are some important guidelines you should consider:
Avoid heat sources, such as radiators,
air ducts, and sunlight
Avoid television sets and other
electronic equipment
Avoid noise sources such as a window by
a street with heavy traffic
Avoid microwave ovens
Avoid excessive moisture,
extremely low temperatures, dust,
mechanical vibration, or shock
Choose a central location
Avoid personal computers
Avoid other cordless telephones
• The location should be close to both a phone jack and a continuous power outlet
which is not switchable.
• Keep the base and handset away from sources of electrical noise such as motors,
microwave ovens, and fluorescent lighting.
• Be sure there is sufficient space to raise the base antenna to a vertical position.
• The base can be placed on a desk, tabletop, or mounted on a standard wall plate.

The handset is powered by a rechargeable battery pack.
The battery recharges automatically when the handset is
placed in the base unit.
Charge the handset battery pack for at least 15-20
hours before using your new cordless telephone for the
first time! To maximize the charge capacity of your battery
pack, DO NOT plug the telephone cord into the base unit
and wall jack until the battery is fully charged.
Use only the Uniden
(BT-905) rechargeable
battery pack supplied
with your cordless
telephone.
1) Press down on the handset battery case cover (use the
finger indention for a better grip) and slide the cover
downward to remove.
2) Plug the battery pack connector (red & black wires) into
the small, black jack inside the battery compartment.
(The connector notches fit into the grooves of the jack
only one-way.) Match the wire colors to the polarity label
in the battery compartment, connect the battery and listen
for a click to insure connection.
3) Make certain you have made a good connection by slightly
pulling on the battery wires to insure that there is a secure
connection. If the battery connector is not securely
connected, the handset will not charge properly.

B. Install the rechargeable battery pack into the handset
EXA3245.Qx 1/27/3 10:00 AM Page 8
4) Place the battery case cover back on the handset by sliding
it upwards until it clicks into place.
5) Place the handset in the base unit for 15-20 hours without
interruption. The base unit’s LED light (labeled charge/in
use) illuminates once the handset is placed in the base.
The LED light will illuminate regardless if the battery pack
is connected or not.
DO NOT rely on the LED light as an indicator that the
battery pack is connected and the handset is charging!
Replacement batteries
are also available
through the Uniden
Parts Department at
(800) 554-3988, Monday
to Friday from 8:00 a.m.
to 5:00 p.m. or online
at www.uniden.com
[8]
If the base charge/in use LED light does not illuminate:
• Check to see if the AC adapter is plugged into the base
unit and the electrical wall outlet properly. (Use only the
supplied AC adapter. Do not use any other AC adapter.)
• Check to see if the handset is sitting correctly in the
base and making good contact with the base unit’s
charging contacts.
GETTING STARTED
www.uniden.com
EXA3245.Qx 1/27/3 10:00 AM Page 9
From fully charged (15-20 hours charge time)
• Up to seven hours continuous use during the talk mode.
• Up to fourteen days when the handset is in the standby mode.
Low battery alert
When the battery pack is very low and needs to be charged, the phone is programmed
to eliminate functions in order to save power. If the phone is not in use, the
talk/batt low LED flashes when the battery pack is low.
If the phone is in use, the talk/batt low LED flashes and the handset beeps.
Complete your conversation as quickly as possible and return the handset to the base
unit for charging.
The last number dialed in the redial memory and the numbers
stored in the memory locations are retained for up to 1 minutes
while you replace the battery pack.
Cleaning the charging contacts
To maintain a good charge, it is important to clean the
charging contacts on both the handset and base unit
once a month. Use a dry cloth or pencil eraser to clean.
If the contacts became very dirty, using water only,
dampen a cloth to clean the charging contacts.
Then make sure to go back over the charging contacts
with a dry cloth before returning the handset to the
base to charge.
www.uniden.com
• Even when the battery
pack is not being
used, it will gradually
discharge over a long
period of time. For
optimum performance,
be sure to return the
handset to the base
unit after a telephone
call.
• Talk Mode - The
handset is off the base
and talk has been
pressed enabling a dial
tone.
• Standby Mode - The
handset is not in use,
off the base, and talk
has not been pressed.

C. Connect the base unit
1) Connect the AC adapter to the DC IN 9V jack and
to a standard 120V AC wall outlet.
• Use only the supplied
AD-314 AC adapter.
Do not use any other
AC adapter.
• Place the power cord
so that it does not
create a trip hazard or
where it could become
chafed and create a
fire or electrical
hazard.
2) Set the base on a desk or tabletop, and place the
handset on the base unit as shown. (For wall
mounting, see "Mounting the Base Unit on a Wall",
on page 12.)
3) Raise the antenna to a vertical position.
4) Make sure the charge/in use LED illuminates.
If the LED does not illuminate, check to see that
the AC adapter is plugged in and the handset
makes good contact with the base charging
contacts.
• Connect the AC adapter to a continuous power supply.
• Place the base unit close to the AC outlet so that you can
unplug the AC adapter easily.
The handset can be
placed face up or
face down in the base
for charging.
[ 10 ]
• After installing the battery pack in the handset, charge your handset at least
15-20 hours before plugging into the phone line.

5) Once the handset battery pack is fully charged,
connect the telephone line cord to the TEL LINE
jack and a telephone outlet once the handset is
fully charged.
If your telephone outlet isn't
modular, contact your telephone
company for assistance.
Modular
D. Choose the dialing mode
Most phone systems use tone dialing which sends DTMF tones through the phone
lines. However some phone systems still use pulse dialing such as in rural areas.
The default setting is tone dialing. Depending on your dialing system, set the mode
as follows:
1) Press and hold the flash key until you hear a confirmation tone.
2) To set the dial mode for pulse dialing, press the # key.
Or to set the dial mode for tone dialing, press the
/tone key.
You hear a confirmation tone to indicate the setting is complete.
*
• Make sure your battery
pack is fully charged
before choosing the
dial mode.
• If you are not sure of
your dialing system,
set for tone dialing.
Make a trial call. If the
call connects, leave
the setting as is, otherwise set for pulse
dialing.
• If your phone system
requires pulse dialing
and you need to send
DTMF tones for certain
situations during a
call, you may “switchover” to tone dialing.

Switch-over” on page

Direct wall 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 5 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.
1) Insert two mounting screws into the wall, (with their appropriate
anchoring device), 3-15/16 inches apart. Allow about 1/8 of an
inch between the wall and screw heads for mounting the phone.
2) Refer to steps 1 through 8 on page 12 to mount the telephone.

Tone Dialing Switch-over
• The tone feature only
applies when the dial
mode is set to pulse.
• This special number
can be stored in a
memory location. This
is referred to as Chain
Dialing (see page 19.)
Some telephone companies use equipment that requires pulse
dialing (sometimes referred to as rotary dialing). If you need to
enter tone dialing digits, you can switch-over to tone dialing
during the call. For example, entering your bank account number
after you have called your bank.
Initially make your call with the pulse dialing mode. Once your
call connects, press the
/tone key. Enter the desired number.
These digits will be sent as tone dialing. Once the call ends, the
tone mode is canceled and pulse dialing mode resumes.
*
Traveling Out-of-Range
During a call, as you begin to move your handset too far from your base unit,
noise increases. If you pass the range limits of the base unit, your call will terminate
within 1 minute.

Rechargeable Nickel-Cadmium
Batteries Must Be Recycled or
Disposed of Properly
• Uniden voluntarily participates in an RBRC® industry program to
collect and recycle nickel-cadmium batteries at the end of their
useful life, when taken out of service within the United States.
The RBRC® program provides a convenient alternative to placing
used nickel-cadmium batteries into the trash or municipal waste
stream, which is illegal in some areas.
• Through the RBRC® program, Uniden makes it easy for you to drop
off the used battery at local retailers of replacement nickel-cadmium
batteries. You may also contact your local recycling center for
information on where to return the used battery. Please call 1-8008-BATTERY for information on Ni-Cd battery recycling in your area.
Uniden's involvement in this program is part of its commitment to
protecting our environment and conserving natural resources.
• RBRC® is a registered trademark of the Rechargeable Battery

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS!
Important Electrical Considerations
Unplug all electrical appliances when you know an electrical storm is
approaching. Lightning can pass through your household wiring and
damage any device connected to it. This phone is no exception.
The FCC Wants You To Know
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. Your telephone compiles with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must,
upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your
telephone company. Both numbers are on the base unit.
NOTE:
You must not connect your phone to:
• coin-operated systems
• most electronic key telephone systems
Range
Your new phone is designed to achieve the maximum possible range by
transmitting and receiving according to the highest specifications set
forth by the FCC. We have rated this phone to operate at a maximum
distance with the qualification that the range depends upon the
environment in which the telephone is used. Many factors limit range,
and it would be impossible to include all the variables in our rating.
The Maximum Range rating of this phone is meant to be used as a
means of comparison against other range claims.
Additional Battery Safety Precautions
Caution!
[ 44 ]
1. Use only the Uniden battery pack specified in the owner’s manual.
2. Do not dispose of the battery pack in a fire. The cell may explode.
Check the nickel-cadmium battery disposal package insert for
disposal instructions.
3. Do not open or mutilate the battery pack. Released electrolyte is
corrosive and may cause damage to the eyes or skin. It may be toxic
if swallowed.
4. Exercise care in handling the battery in order not to short the
battery with conducting materials such as rings, bracelets, and keys.
The battery or conductor may overheat and cause burns.
5. Charge the battery pack provided with or identified for use with this
product only in accordance with the instructions and limitations
specified in the owner’s manual provided for this product.
6. Observe proper polarity orientation between the battery pack and
battery charger.

Telephone Line Problems
The FCC has granted the telephone company the right to disconnect
service in the event that your phone causes problems on the telephone
line. Also, the telephone company may make changes in facilities and
services which may affect the operation of your unit. However, your
telephone company must give adequate notice in writing prior to such
actions to allow you time for making necessary arrangements to
continue uninterrupted service.
If you are having trouble with your telephone service, you must first
disconnect your phone to determine if it is the cause of your problem.
If you determine that it is the cause, you must leave it disconnected
until the trouble has been corrected.
Radio Interference
More Than One Cordless Telephone
If you want to use more than one cordless telephone in your home,
they must operate on different channels. Press the channel key to
select a channel that provides the clearest communication.
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.
Installation Considerations
Selecting a Location
Before choosing a location for your new phone, there are some
important guidelines you should consider:
• The location should be close to both a phone jack and continuous
power outlet. (A continuous power outlet is an AC outlet which does
not have a switch to interrupt its power.)
• Keep the base and handset away from sources of electrical noise
such as motors or fluorescent lighting.
www.uniden.com
Telephone Line Outlets
There are two types of phone outlets:
Modular Jack
Most phone equipment available now uses modular jacks. Phone cords
are fitted with a molded plastic connector which plugs into this type
of jack. If you do not have modular phone jacks, contact your local
telephone company for information about their installation.
Hardwired Jack
Some equipment is wired directly to a phone jack, and these types of
installations require a modular jack converter. This type of installation
is not difficult; however, you should contact your Uniden telephone
dealer or a telephone supply store for advice about the proper adapter
or converter for your particular situation.
Connecting the Telephone Cords
Consider these safety guidelines before connecting the telephone cords:
Caution!
• Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.
• Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals unless the
telephone line has been disconnected.
• Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.
Applying Power to the Base
This phone requires an AC outlet, without a switch to interrupt power,
and the included AC adapter. To relieve strain on the DC plug when the
phone is placed on a desk or table, wrap the power cord around the
strain relief notch on the back of the base.
NOTE:
Place the power cord so that it does not create a trip
hazard, or where it could become chafed and create a
fire or other electrical hazards.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
[ 45 ]
ADDITIONAL
INFORMATION
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 antenna on the unit is fully extended.
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.
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.
• Be sure there is sufficient space to fully extend the base antenna.
• The base can be placed on a desk or tabletop or mounted on a
standard telephone wall plate.
• You should charge your new phone for 15-20 hours before
completing the installation or using the handset.
