You must install and charge
the battery before using the
cordless handset.
Install the telephone base close to a telephone wall jack and an electrical
outlet not controlled by a wall switch. The telephone base can be placed on a
flat surface or vertically mounted on the wall (page 8). For optimum range and
better reception, place the telephone base in a central and open location.
If you subscribe to high-speed Internet service (DSL - digital subscriber line)
through your telephone line, you must install a DSL filter between the
telephone line cord and the telephone wall jack (page 5). The filter prevents
noise and caller ID problems caused by DSL interference. Please contact your
DSL service provider for more information about DSL filters.
Your product may be shipped with a protective sticker covering the handset
or telephone base display - remove it before use.
For customer service or product information, visit our website at
www.telephones.att.com or call 1 (800) 222-3111. In Canada, dial
1 (866) 288-4268.
Avoid placing the telephone base too close to:
• Communication devices such as television sets, VCRs, or other
cordless telephones.
• Excessive heat sources.
• Noise sources such as a window with traffic outside, motors, microwave
ovens, refrigerators, or fluorescent lighting.
• Excessive dust sources such as a workshop or garage.
• Excessive moisture.
• Extremely low temperature.
• Mechanical vibration or shock such as on top of the washing machine or
work bench.

Caller ID
About caller ID
This product supports caller ID services offered by most telephone service
providers. Caller ID allows you to see the name, number, date and time of calls.
The available caller ID information will appear after the first or second ring.
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
Christine Smith
service.
888-722-7702
• You don’t subscribe to caller ID or call waiting services.
There are fees for caller ID services. In addition, services
may not be available in all areas.
10:30PM
10/20
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 are sent by the telephone service provider along with the
call information.
The caller ID information may not be available for every incoming call. The
callers may intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers.
NOTE: You can use this product with regular caller ID service, or you can use this
product’s other features without subscribing to either caller ID or combined caller ID with call
waiting service.
About home area code
See Home area code on page 15 to determine if you should enter your area
code. Entering the area code changes how numbers are displayed in the
caller ID history and how to return a call from the caller ID history (see
To view the dialing options on page 47).
44
Caller ID
Caller ID history
How caller ID history (call log) works
The telephone stores caller ID information about the last 50 incoming calls
in the telephone base. Each entry may have up to 24 digits for the telephone
number and 15 characters for the name. Entries are stored in reverse
chronological order. The telephone deletes the oldest entry when the log
is full to make room for new calls. If you have more than one handset (see
Adding and registering a handset on page 60), this information is common
to all handsets, so changes made in any handset are reflected in all other
handsets. If you answer a call before the information appears on the screen,
it does not show in the caller ID history.
NOTE: The caller ID information might not be available for every incoming call. The callers
might intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers (see Reasons for missing
caller ID information on page 46).
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 Robert Brown calls, his name appears as
Bob if this is how you entered it into your directory.
Bob
800-360-4121
10:30PM
10/20
NOTE: The number shown by your caller ID is in the format sent by the telephone service
provider. The telephone service provider usually delivers 10-digit telephone numbers (area
code plus telephone number). If the telephone number of the caller does not match a number
in your directory, the name appears as it is delivered by the telephone service provider. For
example, if the telephone service provider includes the area code and the directory number
does not, the name appears as delivered by the telephone service provider.

Answering system
Answering system and voicemail
About answering system and voicemail
Your telephone has separate indicators for two different types of voice
messages: those left on its built-in answering system and those left at
your service provider’s voicemail (fees may apply). Your telephone’s builtin answering system messages and voicemail messages are separate. Each
alerts you to new messages differently.
If
and New voicemail display on the handset, your telephone service
provider is indicating that it has new voicemail for you. To listen to your
voicemail, you typically dial an access number provided by your telephone
service provider, followed by a security code or PIN.
Some 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
service provider.
To use your voicemail service rather than your answering system, turn off
your answering system. To use your answering system rather than your
voicemail service, contact your telephone service provider to deactivate
your voicemail service. 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.
If you have voicemail provided by your telephone service provider, we
recommend setting 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.
Answering system new message indication
When there are new messages (including memos) on the answering system,
the number of new messages stored flashes in the message window on the
telephone base and the
icon and XX new messages

Answering system
Answering system overview
Voice prompts
The system provides voice prompts to guide you through recording
announcements and remote access.
Message capacity
The answering system can record up to 99 messages, depending on the
length of each message. Individual messages can be up to the time you
set (see Recording time on page 21; individual memos can be up to three
minutes), and the approximate recording time is 14 minutes. The actual
recording time depends on individual message characteristics. Messages
remain available for replay until you delete them.
At the beginning of messages playback, if the answering system has less
than three minutes of recording time left, the answering system announces,
“Less than three minutes to record.” If the memory is full, the answering
system announces, “Memory is full.”
If the memory is full, the number of messages and F flash alternately in the
message window, and Memory full appears on the handset screen. You must
delete some messages before recording new ones.
Call screening
Call screening on the telephone base:
If the answering system and call screening are on, the announcement and the
incoming message can be heard through the telephone base when a call arrives.
You can turn call screening on or off using the handset (see Call screening
setup on page 19). When call screening is off, you can temporarily turn on
the call screening by pressing
PLAY/STOP or VOLUME on the telephone
base. The call screening will be off for the next incoming call.
If call screening is on and you want to adjust the
playback volume to a comfortable level (1-8) while
it is recording messages, press
VOLUME on the
telephone base. This volume setting is shared with
message playback, so when you play messages at
volume 1, they play at a very low volume. If you turn
up the volume for playback, the call screening for the
next incoming message plays at the same volume level.
If call screening is on and you want to silence the telephone base while it
is recording messages, press
PLAY/STOP on the telephone base. The call
screening will be on for the next incoming call.

My telephone doesn’t work at all.
• Make sure the power cord is securely plugged in.
• Make sure that the battery connector is securely plugged into the
cordless handset.
• Make sure the telephone line cord is securely and firmly plugged into the
telephone base and the telephone wall jack.
• Charge the battery in the cordless handset for at least 16 hours. For
optimum daily performance, return the cordless handset to the telephone
base or charger when not in use.
• If the battery is depleted, it may take approximately 30 minutes to charge
the handset before it shows Low battery. Refer to Battery charging on
page 7 for details.
• Reset the telephone base. Unplug the electrical power. Wait for
approximately 15 seconds, then plug it back in. Allow up to one minute for
the cordless handset and telephone base to reset.
• You may need to purchase a new battery. Use only the supplied rechargeable
battery or replacement battery (model BT166342). To order, visit our website
at www.telephones.att.com, or call 1 (800) 222-3111. In Canada,
dial 1 (866) 288-4268.
I cannot get a dial tone.
• First try all the suggestions above.
• Move the cordless handset closer to the telephone base. You might have
moved out of range.
• If the previous suggestions don’t work, disconnect the telephone base from
the telephone wall jack and connect to a different telephone. If there is no
dial tone on that telephone either, the problem is in your wiring or telephone
service. Contact your telephone service provider (charges may apply).
• Your telephone line cord might be malfunctioning. Try installing a new
telephone line cord.

Troubleshooting
I cannot dial out.
• First try all the suggestions in the item I cannot get a dial tone on page 67.
• Make sure you have a dial tone before dialing. The cordless handset may
take a second or two to find the telephone base and produce a dial tone.
This is normal. Wait an extra second before dialing.
• Check that all the telephones connected to the same telephone line are
hung up.
• Make sure to set the dial mode to the correct setting (pulse dialing or tone
dialing) for the service in your area (see Dial mode on page 16).
• Eliminate any background noise. Noise from a television, radio or other
appliances may cause the telephone to not dial out properly. If you cannot
eliminate the background noise, first try muting the cordless handset
before dialing, or dialing from another room in your home with less
background noise.
• If the other telephones in your home are having the same problem, the
problem is in your wiring or telephone service. Contact your telephone
service provider (charges may apply).
My cordless handset isn’t performing normally.
• Make sure the power cord is securely plugged into the telephone base.
Plug the power adapter into a different, working electrical outlet not
controlled by a wall switch.
• Move the cordless handset closer to the telephone base. You might have
moved out of range.
• Reset the telephone base. Unplug the electrical power. Wait for 15
seconds then plug it back in. Allow up to one minute for the cordless
handset and telephone base to reset.
• Other electronic products such as HAM radios and other DECT phones
can cause interference with your cordless telephone. Try installing your
telephone as far away as possible from these types of electronic devices.
Out of range or no pwr at base appears on my cordless handset.
• Ensure that the telephone base is powered up.

month using a pencil eraser or cloth.
I get noise, static, or weak signals even when I’m near the telephone base.
• If you subscribe to high-speed Internet service (DSL - digital subscriber line)
through your telephone line, you must install a DSL filter between the
telephone line cord and the telephone wall jack (see Telephone base
and charger installation on page 5). The filter prevents noise and caller
ID problems caused by DSL interference. Please contact your DSL service
provider for more information about DSL filters.
• Other electronic products such as HAM radios and other DECT phones
can cause interference with your cordless telephone. You may be able to
improve the performance of your telephone by installing your telephone as
far away as possible from these types of electronic devices.
• Do not install this telephone near a microwave oven or on the same

Troubleshooting
• If your telephone is plugged in with a modem or a surge protector, plug
the telephone (or modem/surge protector) into a different location. If this
doesn’t solve the problem, relocate your telephone or modem farther
apart from one another, or use a different surge protector.
• Relocate your telephone to a higher location. The telephone will likely
have better reception when installed in a high area.
• If the other telephones in your home are having the same problem, the
problem is in your wiring or telephone service. Contact your telephone
service provider (charges may apply).
I experience poor sound quality when using the speakerphone.
• For increased sound quality while using the speakerphone, place the
handset on a flat surface with the dial pad facing up.
• When using a speakerphone, controlling background noise in your
environment is essential. While you are listening to your party, press
MUTE/REMOVE to temporarily turn your microphone off. When it is your turn
to speak, remember to press MUTE/REMOVE again to turn the microphone on.
• Excessive background noise will cause a speakerphone to fade in and
out. Try controlling the background noise by turning off any audio devices
near the speakerphone. Also, try to avoid interrupting the person at the
other end of the conversation while they are speaking. If background noise
cannot be controlled, you should terminate speakerphone operation and
return to normal handset mode.
I hear other calls while using my telephone.
• Disconnect the telephone base from the telephone wall jack, and plug in
a different telephone. If you still hear other calls, the problem is probably
in your wiring or telephone service. Call your telephone service provider
(charges may apply).
My calls cut in and out while I’m using my cordless handset.
• Other electronic products such as HAM radios and other DECT phones
can cause interference with your cordless telephone. Try installing your
telephone as far away as possible from these types of electronic devices.
• Move the handset closer to the base. The operating range may vary with
environmental conditions and time of use. There may be places within your
environment that a cordless telephone will not work well. If the problem
only occurs in certain areas of your environment, you can conclude that
there is nothing wrong with the telephone.
• Do not install this telephone near a microwave oven or on the same
electrical outlet. You may experience decreased performance while the
microwave oven is operating.

• You may have too many extension telephones on your telephone line to
allow all of them to ring simultaneously. Try unplugging one telephone at
a time until the telephone starts ringing.
• The layout of your home or office might be limiting the operating range. Try
moving the telephone base to another location, preferably on an upper floor.
• If the other telephones in your home are having the same problem, the
problem is in your wiring or telephone service. Contact your telephone

My telephone does not receive caller ID when on a call.
• Make sure you subscribe to caller ID with call waiting features provided by
your telephone service provider. Caller ID features work only if both you
and the caller are in areas offering caller ID service, and if both telephone
service providers use compatible equipment.
New voicemail and
icon show on the display and I don’t know why.
• Your telephone has voicemail indication that is separate from the built-in
answering system. If New voicemail and
appear on the display, then
your telephone has received a signal from your telephone service provider
that you have a voicemail message waiting for you to retrieve from your
telephone service provider. Contact your telephone service provider for
more information on how to access your voicemail.
I cannot retrieve voicemail messages.
• Your telephone has both a built-in answering system and voicemail
indication. They are independent features and each alerts you to new

Troubleshooting
Incomplete messages.
• If a caller leaves a very long message, part of it may be lost when the
answering system disconnects the call after the recording time you set
(see Recording time on page 21).
• If the caller pauses for longer than seven seconds, the answering system
stops recording and disconnects the call.
• If the answering system’s memory becomes full during a message, the
answering system announces, “Memory is full.“ The answering system
stops recording and disconnects the call.
• If the caller’s voice is very soft, the answering system may stop recording
and disconnect the call.
• If someone picks up the call at a telephone on the same line during a
message, the answering system stops recording and disconnects the call.
Part of the message may be lost.
Difficulty hearing messages.
• Press
VOLUME to adjust the speaker volume on the telephone base.
• Press DIR/VOLUME to increase the message playback volume on a handset.
The answering system does not answer after the correct number of rings.
• Make sure the answering system is on. When the answering system is on,
ANS ON should show on the handset and the ANS ON light is lit on the
telephone base (see Answering mode on page 18).
• If toll saver is selected, the number of rings changes to two when there
are new messages (see Number of rings on page 20).
• If the memory is full or the answering system is off, the answering system
answers after 10 rings.
• In some cases, the answering system is affected by the ringing system
used by the telephone service provider.
• If you subscribe to voicemail service, change the number of rings so that
your answering system answers before your voicemail answers (see About
answering system and voicemail on page 50). To determine how many
rings activate your voicemail, contact your telephone service provider.
• If there is a fax machine connected to the same telephone line, try
disconnecting the fax machine. If that solves the problem, consult your fax
machine documentation for information on compatibility with
answering systems.
The answering system announces “Time and date not set.”
• You need to reset the date and time (see Set date/time on page 14).
73
Appendix
Troubleshooting
The answering system does not respond to remote commands.
• Make sure to enter your remote access code correctly (see Remote access
on page 58).
• Make sure you are calling from a touch-tone telephone. When you dial a
number, you should hear tones. If you hear clicks, the telephone is not a
touch-tone telephone and cannot activate the answering system.
• The answering system may not detect the remote access code while your
announcement is playing. Try waiting until the announcement is over
before entering the code.
• There may be interference on the telephone line you are using. Press dial
pad keys firmly.
The answering system does not record messages.
• Make sure the answering system is on (see Answering mode on page 18).
• Make sure the memory of the answering system is not full. When the
answering machine memory is full, it does not record new messages until
some old messages are deleted.
• If you subscribe to voicemail service, change the number of rings so that
your answering system answers before your voicemail answers (see About
answering system and voicemail on page 50). To determine how many
rings activate your voicemail, contact your telephone service provider.
• If there is a fax machine connected to the same telephone line, try
disconnecting the fax machine. If that solves the problem, consult your fax
machine documentation for information on compatibility with
answering systems.
The announcement is not clear.
• When you record your announcement, make sure you speak in a normal
tone of voice towards the microphone on the handset.
• Make sure there is no background noise (TV, music, etc.) while recording.
The handset registration is unsuccessful.
• Follow the handset registration instructions to register the handset again
(see Adding and registering a handset on page 60).
I subscribe to a nontraditional telephone service that uses my computer
to establish connections, and my telephone doesn’t work.
• Make sure your computer is powered on.
• Make sure your Internet connection is working properly.
• Make sure that the software is installed and running for your nontraditional
telephone service.
74
Appendix
Troubleshooting
• Make sure to plug your USB telephone adapter into a dedicated USB port

Appendix
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 in
the rain, or handle it with wet hands. Do not install the telephone base
near a sink, bathtub or shower.
Electrical storms
• Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic
equipment. For your own safety, take 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 mild soap.
• Do not use excess water or cleaning solvents of any kind.
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used when you are wet or
standing in water. If the telephone base should fall into water, DO NOT RETRIEVE IT UNTIL
YOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE CORDS FROM THE WALL. Then pull
the telephone out by the unplugged cords.

Especially 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 handset
by radio waves, so there is a possibility that your 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 which is not controlled by a wall switch. Calls cannot be made
from the handset if the telephone base is unplugged, switched off or if the electrical
power is interrupted.
77
Appendix
Important safety information
• Potential TV interference: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that may
cause interference to TVs 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 will often
reduce or eliminate the interference.
• Rechargeable batteries: This product contains nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries.
Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to create a short circuit with conductive
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. Like other batteries of this type, if burned or punctured, they could
release caustic material which could cause injury.
The RBRC™ Seal means that the manufacturer is voluntarily participating in
an industry program to collect and recycle nickel-metal hydride rechargeable
batteries when taken out of service within the United States. These batteries
may be taken to a participating local retailer of replacement batteries or
recycling center. Or you may call 1 (800) 8-BATTERY for locations accepting
spent Ni-MH batteries.
Precautions for users of implanted cardiac pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to digital cordless telephones): Wireless Technology
Research, LLC (WTR), an independent research entity, led a multidisciplinary evaluation of the
interference between portable wireless telephones and implanted cardiac pacemakers. Supported
by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, WTR recommends to physicians that:
Pacemaker patients
• Should keep wireless telephones at least six inches from the pacemaker.
• Should NOT place wireless telephones directly over the pacemaker, such as in a breast
pocket, when it is turned ON.
• Should use the wireless telephone at the ear opposite the pacemaker.
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to bystanders with pacemakers from other persons
using wireless telephones.
Especially about telephone answering systems
