Rock, etc.) for you to use as your default ringer or a distinctive ringer. Four of the ringers

recordings. You will find 14 additional sound clips excluding those preset in the handset on
the accompanying CD-ROM.

headset jack of your PC or audio source. Then insert the 2.5mm plug (the smaller end) into
the headset jack on the side of the i 5858 handset.
You can listen to the playing music through your handset speaker after connecting the audio
patch cord and selecting the Using Audio Cable menu option. Adjust the recording volume
at the audio source. To begin recording, press RECORD.
If you want to use the handset microphone to record ringers, select the Using Microphone

The VTech phonebook manager allows you to open graphic files on your PC and transfer them
to your phone. Once the graphics are transferred, they can be used for your wallpaper image or
to assign to a particular phonebook entry, quickly alerting you to your caller’s identification.
With the phonebook manager you can also modify the graphic prior to sending it to the handset.
Common graphic editing functions such as zoom, rotate, brightness/contrast adjustment and
red/green/color balance adjustments can all be done from the VTech phonebook manager.

Phonebook Tab Functions
The VTech phonebook manager can be used to create, modify and backup phonebook files
from your handset. The phonebook manager has many useful functions:
• Export existing contacts from any contact manager (such as Microsoft Outlook, Palm, etc.)
to a comma separated text file. Import those contacts into the phonebook manager and
transfer the entire phonebook to your handset.
• Transfer a phonebook from your handset to your PC and save it to disk. Connect a different
handset and transfer the phonebook from your PC to the new handset. This allows you
to easily store a copy of a phonebook on your PC and transfer it to several different
handsets.
• Use the phonebook manager to backup your handset phonebook onto your PC. If for any
reason you need to restore the phonebook on your handset, you have a copy safely stored
on your PC.
• Use the phonebook manager to create a phonebook offline on your PC. When you have
finished editing it, connect your handset and transfer it from the PC to your handset.
NOTE: The phonebook manager application does not perform any synchronization of the
phonebook between the PC and the handset. When the Transfer to Handset button is pressed,
the entire phonebook is transferred to the handset replacing the existing phonebook on the
handset.
Creating an Empty Phonebook
To create an empty phonebook to input data:
• Double-click on the VTech phonebook manager icon on your PC.
• Click on the Phonebook tab.
• Select the CREATE PHONEBOOK
button.
• Using the phonebook manager application, make any changes required to the phonebook.
You can add entries or import contacts from other PC applications such as Microsoft Outlook
or Palm.

PC’s hard drive or transfer it to your handset:
• Select the SAVE PHONEBOOK
button to save the data to your PC’s hard
drive.

Edit a Phonebook
You can either open an existing phonebook stored in your PC’s hard drive by pressing the OPEN
PHONEBOOK
button using the phonebook manager software, or by transferring the
phonebook from your handset by transferring it to the phonebook manager software using the
supplied USB cable. To accomplish this:
• Connect your handset to your PC using the USB cable.
• Start the phonebook manager application on your PC.
• Verify the connection by insuring the green icon on the status bar. (If it is not, re-connect the
handset to the PC with the USB cable.)
• Press the Phonebook tab.

Using the phonebook manager software, edit the phonebook entries as you wish. At this
time you can also add new entries or import contacts from other programs such as Microsoft
Outlook or Palm, etc.
When you are finished editing the phonebook, save it to your PC’s hard drive by pressing
the SAVE PHONEBOOK
button. To transfer the newly edited phonebook to your
handset, use the Transfer Phonebook
button.
Import Contacts Into Phonebook Manager From Other PC Applications
Use this feature to import contacts from a comma separated text file into the VTech phonebook
manager software. The contacts will be merged into the currently loaded phonebook.
1. Create a comma separated text file containing the contacts you want to import into
your handset. This is accomplished by using the export function from your other contact
management application (such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express or Palm applications).
The export function in these programs is normally located under the file menu. Be sure to
specify the export file as a text file or comma separated file (CSV). An example of exporting
contacts from Microsoft Outlook is as follows:
a. Start Microsoft Outlook on your PC.
b. Select import/export from the file menu.
c. Select export to file and press next.
d. Select a file type of comma separated values (in Windows).
e. Select the folder containing the contacts you want to export.
f. Once you’ve selected a contact folder, press next.
g. Enter a file name to save your contacts to. This will be the file you select to import into the
phonebook manager program. Be sure to make note of where on your PC you save the file
for later reference.
2. Start the VTech phonebook manager program on your PC. Load the newly created phonebook
into the phonebook manager software using these steps:
•
•
•
Press the Transfer
button.
Press the CREATE PHONEBOOK

•
•
•
•
•
Press the Import/Export
button.
Select Import Contacts and press the next button.
Use the browse button to locate the comma separated text file you saved in step one. Press
next.
The next screen displays how the fields from the comma separated text file will be mapped
to the handset phonebook entries. There are two fields in the VTech phonebook; name and
number. However, most PC contact managers separate names into the first and last name
fields. To allow import of this type of file, the mapping dialog allows you to instruct how the
name fields from your import file will be placed in the VTech phonebook name field. For
example, the following mappings will import the fields first name and last name into the VTech
name field. The home phone field will be imported into the VTech phone number field:
If the mapping displayed is not what is desired, select one of the rows and press the Change
Map button to correct it. You can only use each of the three fields (VTech name first, VTech
name last and VTech phone number) once. If you want to change one that has already
been mapped, you must first select that row and use the Change Map button to remove
the association.
When you are done editing the mapping, press the Finish button. The contacts will now be
imported and merged into the currently loaded phonebook.
Exporting Contacts to a Comma Separated Text File
This feature allows you to export some or all of your VTech phonebook entries into a comma
separated text file. This comma separated text file can then be imported into common contact
manager software such as Microsoft Outlook or Palm applications.
• Load a phonebook into the phonebook manager.
• If you wish to only export some of your contacts, select the desired contacts in the list of
contacts loaded. You can use your mouse to select to a single row. If you want to select
multiple rows, hold down the CTRL key while using your mouse to click on the rows to be
selected.
• Press the Import/Export
button.
• Select Export Contacts and press the next button.
• Select whether you want to Export All Contacts or Selected Contacts.
• Enter the name of the file to export the contacts to. You can use the browse button to locate
the folder and enter a file name.
• Press the Finish button to complete the export operation.

Caller ID - call waiting ID
Your i 5858 is capable of displaying the name and/or number of the party calling before you
answer the phone (caller ID). It is also capable of displaying caller ID information in conjunction
with a call waiting alert signal (Call Waiting Caller ID). With call waiting caller ID, the caller ID
data is displayed so you can decide whether to answer the incoming call, or continue with your
current conversation.
NOTES ABOUT CALLER ID & CALL WAITING CALLER ID
These are subscription services, provided by most regional telephone service providers.
You must subscribe to these services to get the benefits of these features. If you do not
subscribe to caller ID services, you can still use your i 5858 and the other features it offers.
Due to regional incompatibilities, caller ID information may not be available for every call
you receive. In addition, the calling party may intentionally block their name and/or phone
number from being sent.
Reviewing caller ID from the base
As new caller ID/call waiting ID records are received,
your base display will alert you to the new caller ID
records, for example:
The number of new calls displayed on each system handset and base may not be the same. If,
for example, you answer a call on a handset, the handset will not count the caller ID information
for that call as new. However, the base displays will consider it a new call, and add it to the
NEW CALLS total.
After you review all new caller ID records, the NEW CALLS status will be turned off.
From the idle (off) mode, press MENU, highlight the

information of the most recently received call will be

will be muted. This is done to limit the effect of
background noise.
The i 5858 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.

In Case Of Difficulty
If you have difficulty operating your phone, the suggestions below should solve the problem. If
you still have difficulty after trying these suggestions, call VTech Telecommunications at 1-800267-7377. In US, call VTech Communications at 1-800-595-9511.
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 batteries 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.
The layout of your home may be limiting the range. Try moving the base unit to another
position.
•
•
•
•
Make sure you have the ringer activated. Refer to the section(s) on Sounds-Ringer Volume
in this user’s manual.
Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged firmly into the base unit and the telephone
jack. Make sure the power cord is plugged in.
You may be too far from the base unit.
You may have too many extension phones on your telephone line to allow all of them to ring.
Try unplugging some of the other phones.
Your handset vibrates or shakes when a call comes in
•
It is likely that your vibrating handset ringer option has been set to ON. If you’d like to turn
it off, see the section on "Sounds - Ringer Vibrate in this user’s manual.
You hear other calls while using your phone
•
Disconnect your base unit from the telephone jack, and plug in a regular telephone. If you
still hear other calls, the problem is probably in your wiring or local service. Call your local
telephone company.
You hear noise in the handset, and none of the keys or buttons work
•
Make sure the power cord is plugged in.

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.
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.
FCC and ACTA Information
If this equipment was approved for connection to the telephone network prior to July 23,
2001, it complies with Part 68 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) 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.
51
Additional Information
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
FCC, ACTA and IC Regulations
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.
3. Repair instructions
If this equipment is malfunctioning, it must be unplugged from the modular jack until the
problem has been corrected. Repairs to this telephone equipment can only be made by the
manufacturer or its authorized agents. For repair procedures, follow the instructions outlined
under the Limited Warranty.
Additional Information
4. Rights of the telephone company
If this equipment is causing harm to the telephone network, the telephone company 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.
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.
52
FCC, ACTA and IC Regulations
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
