poles aligned in the battery
compartment.
2. Replace the battery cover by sliding it
upwards.
3. If the new battery cells are not already

To purchase a Headset, call VTech Customer Service at 1-800-595-9511.
Once you have a compatible 2.5mm Headset, locate the Headset Jack on the i 5803
Handset. Connect the plug on the Headset cord to the jack (under a small rubber flag)
on the cordless Handset. The plug should fit securely. Do not force the connection.
NOTE:
Whenever a compatible Headset is connected
to the cordless Handset, the microphone on the
Handset will be muted. This is done to limit the
effect of background noise.
Many compatible Headsets have a reversible,
monaural design. This means you can wear
your Headset on either ear, leaving one ear
free for other conversations.
Belt Clip
The i 5803 is also equipped with a detachable
belt clip. Align the pins on the inside edge of
the clip with the notches on the sides of the
Handset. The belt clip should snap securely into
place. Do not force the connection.

Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so it must be
treated with care.
Avoid rough treatment
Place the Handset down gently. Save the original packing materials to protect your
telephone if you ever need to ship it.
Avoid water
Your telephone can be damaged if it gets wet. Do not use the Handset outdoors in
the rain, or handle it with wet hands. Do not install your Base Unit near a sink, bathtub,
or shower.
Electrical storms
Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic equipment.
For your own safety, use caution when using electric appliances during storms.
Cleaning your telephone
Your telephone has a durable plastic casing that should retain its luster for many years.
Clean it only with a soft cloth slightly dampened with water or a mild soap. Do not
use excess water or cleaning solvents of any kind.
Additional Information
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used when you
are wet or standing in water. If your Base Unit should fall into water, DO NOT
RETRIEVE IT UNTIL YOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE
CORDS FROM THE WALL. Then pull the unit out by the unplugged cords.

Communications at 1-800-595-9511. In Canada, call VTech Telecommunications
Canada Ltd. at 1-800-267-7377.
The phone doesn't work at all
• Make sure the Power Cord is plugged in.
• Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged firmly into the Base Unit and the
telephone wall jack.
• Make sure the batteries are properly charged. If you get a LOW BATTERY message
or indication, the battery cells need charging.
No dial tone
• First try all the suggestions above.
• If you still don't hear a dial tone, disconnect the Base Unit from the telephone jack
and connect a different phone. If there is no dial tone on that phone either, the problem
is in your wiring or local service. Contact your local telephone company.
You get noise, static, or a weak signal even when you're near the Base
Unit
• Household appliances plugged into the same circuit as the Base Unit can sometimes
cause interference. Try moving the appliance or the Base Unit to another outlet.
You get noise, static, or a weak signal when you’re away from the Base
Unit
• You may be out of range. Either move closer to the Base, or relocate the Base
Unit.

FCC Part 15
Warning: Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by the party
responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.
The equipment has been tested and found to comply with part 15 of the FCC rules.
These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there
is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to
try and correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
•
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet or on a circuit different from that to which
the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
To ensure safety of users, the FCC has established criteria for the amount of radio
frequency energy that can be safely absorbed by a user or bystander according to the
intended usage of the product. This product has been tested and found to comply with
the FCC criteria. The handset has such a low power that it does not require testing. It
may be safely held against the ear of the user. The base unit shall be installed & used
such that parts of the user’s body other than the hands should be maintained at a
comfortable distance of approximately 20 cm or more.

23, 2001, it complies with Part 68 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
29
Additional Information
•
•
•
FCC, ACTA and IC Regulations
rules. If the equipment was approved after that date, it complies with the Part 68
rules and with Technical Requirements for Connection of Equipment to the Telephone
Network adopted by the Administrative Council for Terminal Attachments (ACTA).
We are required to provide you with the following information.
1. Product identifier and REN information
The label on the back or bottom of this equipment contains, among other things, an
identifier indicating product approval and the Ringer Equivalence Number (REN). This
information must be provided to your local telephone company upon request. For
equipment approved prior to July 23, 2001, the product identifier is preceded by the
phrase “FCC Reg No.” and the REN is listed separately. For equipment approved after
that date, the product identifier is preceded by “US” and a colon (:), and the REN is
encoded in the product identifier without a decimal point as the sixth and seventh
characters following the colon. For example, the product identifier US:AAAEQ03T123XYZ
would indicate an REN of 0.3.
The REN is used to determine how many devices you may connect to your telephone
line and still have them ring when you are called. In most, but not all areas, the sum
of all RENs should be five (5.0) or less. For more information, please contact your
local telephone company.
2. Connection and use with the nationwide telephone network
The plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and the
telephone network must comply with the applicable Part 68 rules and technical
requirements adopted by 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. An RJ11 jack should normally be used for connecting to a single
line and an RJ14 jack for two lines. See Installation Instructions in this user’s manual.
This equipment may not be used with Coin Telephone Lines or with Party Lines. If
you have specially wired alarm dialing equipment connected to your telephone line,
ensure the connection of this equipment does not disable your alarm equipment. If you
have questions about what will disable alarm equipment, consult your telephone
company or a qualified installer.

may temporarily discontinue your telephone service. The telephone company is required
to notify you before interrupting service. If advance notice is not practical, you will be
notified as soon as possible. You will be given the opportunity to correct the problem
and the telephone company is required to inform you of your right to file a complaint
with the FCC. Your telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment,
operation, or procedures that could affect the proper functioning of this product. The
telephone company is required to notify you if such changes are planned.

FCC, ACTA and IC Regulations
5. Hearing aid compatibility
If this product is equipped with a corded or cordless handset, it is hearing aid compatible.
6. Programming/testing of emergency numbers
If this product has memory dialing locations, you may choose to store police, fire
department and emergency medical service telephone numbers in these locations. If
you do, please keep three things in mind:
a. We recommend that you also write the telephone number on the directory card,
so that you can still dial the emergency number manually if the memory dialing
feature doesn’t work.
b. This feature is provided only as a convenience, and the manufacturer assumes
no responsibility for customer reliance upon the memory feature.
c. Testing the emergency telephone numbers you have stored is not recommended.
However, if you do make a call to an emergency number:
• You must remain on the line and briefly explain the reason for the call before
hanging up.
• Programming/testing of emergency numbers should be performed during
off-peak hours, such as in the early morning or late evening, when the
emergency services tend to be less busy.
IC (Industry Canada)
This telephone is registered for use in Canada.
The term “IC:” before the radio certification number only signifies that Industry Canada
technical specifications were met.
Notice: This equipment meets the applicable Industry Canada Terminal Equipment
Technical Specifications. This is confirmed by the registration number. The
abbreviation, IC, before the registration number signifies that registration was
performed based on a Declaration of Conformity indicating that Industry Canada
technical specifications were met. It does not imply that Industry Canada approved
the equipment.
Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is permissible to be connected to the facilities of the local telecommunications company. The equipment must
also be installed using an acceptable method of connection. The customer should be
aware that compliance with the above conditions may not prevent degradation of services in some situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an authorized Canadian maintenance facility designated by the Supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by the
user to this equipment, or equipment malfunctions, may give the telecommunications
company cause to request the user to disconnect the equipment.
31
Additional Information
Notice:
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this terminal equipment is 0.1. The REN
assigned to each terminal equipment provides an indication of the maximum number of
terminals allowed to be connected to a telephone interface. The termination on an interface may consist of any combination of devices subject only to the requirement that
the sum of the Ringer Equivalence Numbers of all the devices does not exceed five.
FCC, ACTA and IC Regulations
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground connections
of the power utility, telephone lines and internal metallic water pipe system, if present,
are connected together. This precaution may be particularly important in rural areas.
Caution:
Users should not attempt to make such connections themselves, but should contact
the appropriate electrical inspection authority or electrician as appropriate.
Your Cordless Phone is designed to operate at the maximum power allowed by the
FCC and IC. This means your Handset and Base Unit can communicate only over
a certain distance - which will depend on the location of the Base Unit and Handset,
weather, and the construction and layout of your home or office.
