Getting started
Telephone installation
Install the telephone base and handset charger(s) as shown below.
Make sure that the electrical outlet is not controlled by a wall switch.
If you subscribe to digital subscriber line (DSL) high-speed Internet service
through your telephone line, you must install a DSL filter between the telephone
line cord and the telephone wall jack. The filter prevents noise and caller ID
problems caused by DSL interference. Contact your DSL service provider for
more information about DSL filters.

Charger
This telephone provides minimal functionality during a power outage. When
the AC power is not available, many telephone features do not function. The
telephone uses power from the telephone line to enable you to make and answer
calls using only the corded handset and dialing keys. However, when more than
one telephone on the same line is being used simultaneously, there might not be
sufficient power to operate your telephone in the event of a power failure.
Getting started
Handset battery installation
Install the battery as shown below.
1. Plug the battery connector securely into the socket inside the handset battery
compartment, matching the color-coded label.
2. Place the battery with the label THIS SIDE UP facing up and the wires inside
the battery compartment.
3. Align the cover flat against the battery compartment, then slide it towards the
center of the handset until it clicks into place.
4. Charge the handset by placing it in the handset charger. The CHARGE light is
on when the handset is charging.

To purchase replacement batteries, visit our website at www.vtechcanada.com
or call 1 (800) 267-7377.
Getting started
Handset battery charging
Once you have installed the battery, the screen indicates the battery status (see
the table below). If necessary, place the handset in the handset charger to charge
the battery. For best performance, keep the handset in the handset charger when
not in use. The battery is fully charged after 11 hours of continuous charging. See
the table on page 63 for battery operating times.
If the screen is blank or displays Place in charger, you need to charge the
handset without interruption for at least 30 minutes to give the handset enough
charge to use the telephone for a short time. When the battery is low, the
handset displays Low battery along with a flashing icon. If you are on a call in
low battery mode, the handset plays short beeps to alert you.
The following table summarizes the battery charge indicators and actions to take.

Call log
About the call log
This product supports caller ID services offered by most telephone service
providers. Depending on your service subscription, you may see the caller’s
number, or the caller’s name and number that are sent by your telephone service
provider after the first or second ring. Caller ID allows you to see the name,
number, date and time of calls.
Information about caller ID with call waiting
Caller ID with call waiting lets you see the name and telephone number of the
caller before answering the call, even while on another call.
It may be necessary to change your telephone service to use this feature.
Contact your telephone service provider if:
• You have both caller ID and call waiting, but as separate services (you may
need to combine these services).
• You have only caller ID service, or only call waiting service.
• You do not subscribe to call log or call waiting services.
There are fees for caller ID services. In addition, services may not be available in
all areas.
This product can provide information only if both you and the caller are in areas
offering caller ID service and if both telephone service providers use compatible
equipment. The time and date, along with the call information, are from the
telephone service provider.
Caller ID information may not be available for every incoming call. Callers may
intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers. To view call log entries
with numbers between 16 and 24 digits, you must save the entry to the directory
(see page 42).
You can use this product with regular caller ID service, or you can use this
product’s other features without subscribing to caller ID or combined caller ID
with call waiting service.

Call log
Call log
If you subscribe to caller ID service, information about each caller will appear
after the first or second ring. If you answer a call before the caller’s information
appear on the screen, it will not be saved in the call log.
• The call log stores up to 50 entries. Each entry has up to 24 digits for the
phone number and 15 characters for the name. If the phone number has more
than 15 digits, only the last 15 digits appear. If the name has more than 15
characters, only the first 15 characters are shown and saved in the call log.
• Call log entries are shared by all system devices. Any modifications made on
one device apply to all.
• You can review, redial, and copy an entry into the directory.
• Entries appear in reverse chronological order.
• When the call log is full, the oldest entry is deleted to make room for new
incoming call information.
• XX Missed calls shows when there are new call log entries that have not
been reviewed.
• Call log empty shows when you access the call log without records.
• Only one system device can review the call log at a time. If a system device
tries to enter the call log while another system device is already in it, its screen
displays Not available at this time.
Memory match
If the incoming telephone number matches the last seven digits of
a telephone number in your directory, the name that appears on
the screen matches the corresponding name in your directory.
For example, if Mike Smith calls, his name appears as Mike
if this is how you entered it into your directory.

To listen to your voicemail, you typically dial an access number provided by

Some telephone service providers bundle or combine multiple services like
voicemail and call waiting, so you may not be aware that you have voicemail. To
check what services you have and how to access them, contact your telephone

Using the answering system and voicemail together
You can also use your telephone answering system and voicemail together by
setting your built-in answering system to answer before voicemail answers as
described below. To learn how to program your voicemail settings, contact your
telephone service provider. Then, if you are on a call, or if the answering system
is busy recording a message and you receive another call, the second caller can
leave a voicemail message.
Set your answering system to answer calls at least two rings earlier than your
voicemail is set to answer. For example, if your voicemail answers after six rings,
set your answering system to answer after four rings. Some voicemail providers
may program the delay before answering calls in seconds instead of rings. In
this case, allow six seconds per ring when determining the appropriate setting.

Appendix
About cordless telephones
•
Privacy: The same features that make a cordless telephone convenient create some limitations.
Telephone calls are transmitted between the telephone base and the cordless handset by radio
waves, so there is a possibility that the cordless telephone conversations could be intercepted by
radio receiving equipment within range of the cordless handset. For this reason, you should not think
of cordless telephone conversations as being as private as those on corded telephones.
•
Electrical power: The telephone base of this cordless telephone must be connected to a working
electrical outlet. The electrical outlet should not be controlled by a wall switch. Calls cannot be made
from the cordless handset if the telephone base is unplugged, switched off or if the electrical power
is interrupted.
•
Potential TV interference: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that may cause
interference to televisions and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, do not place
the telephone base of the cordless telephone near or on top of a TV or VCR. If interference is
experienced, moving the cordless telephone farther away from the TV or VCR often reduces or
eliminates the interference.
•
Rechargeable batteries: Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to create a short circuit
with conducting material such as rings, bracelets and keys. The battery or conductor may overheat
and cause harm. Observe proper polarity between the battery and the battery charger.
•
Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries: Dispose of these batteries in a safe manner. Do
not burn or puncture the battery. Like other batteries of this type, if burned or punctured, they could
release caustic material which could cause injury.
The RBRC® seal
The RBRC® seal on the nickel-metal hydride battery indicates that VTech Communications, Inc. is
voluntarily participating in an industry program to collect and recycle these batteries at the end of their
useful lives, when taken out of service within the United States and Canada.
The RBRC® program provides a convenient alternative to placing used nickel-metal hydride batteries
into the trash or municipal waste, which may be illegal in your area.
VTech’s participation in RBRC® makes it easy for you to drop off the spent battery at local retailers
