Installation
You must install and
charge the battery before
using the telephone.
STOP!
See pages 7-8
for easy instructions.
Install the telephone base close to a telephone jack and a power outlet not
controlled by a wall switch. The telephone base can be placed on a flat surface
or vertically mounted on the wall (see page 9). 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 (see the following page). 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.

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
Robert Brown
telephone number of the caller before answering the
888-883-2445
call, even while on another call.
3:54PM 11/30
It might 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 might need to combine
CHRISTINE SMITH
these services).
888-722-7702
• You have only caller ID service, or only call
waiting service.
10:01
10/15
• 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.
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 might 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 56)

Caller ID
Caller ID history
How the caller ID history (call log) works
The telephone stores caller ID information about the last 50 incoming calls
in the telephone base. Entries are stored in reverse chronological order. The
phone deletes the oldest entry when the log is full to make room for new
calls. This information is common to all handsets and the base, so changes
made using any handset or the telephone base are reflected in all. If you
answer a call before the information appears on the screen, it does not show
in the caller ID history.
NOTE: Each entry may have up to 24 digits for the phone number and 15 characters for
the name.
Missed (new) calls indicator
When a cordless handset or the telephone base is in idle

If

10/15
the telephone base, 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 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 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.
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.

Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
• Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so you
must treat it 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
• You can damage your telephone 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 a 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 unit out by the unplugged cords.

Appendix
Important safety information
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.
•
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

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.

DECT 6.0 digital technology
The AT&T DECT 6.0 products offer unsurpassed range performance and sound clarity. This
is achieved through a unique antenna design and advances in noise filtering technology. An
independent laboratory has confirmed that AT&T DECT 6.0 products perform up to 45% better
in range competitions. Now calls can be taken in the basement, backyard and garage with
exceptional sound quality.
Telephone operating range
This cordless telephone operates within the maximum power allowed by the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC). Even so, this handset and telephone base can communicate
over only a certain distance — which can vary with the locations of the telephone base and
handset, the weather, and the construction of your home or office.
Redefining long range coverage and clarity
This telephone base comes with an antenna which gives much better clarity and covers a longer
range than before.
