About Caller Identification (Caller ID)
This product has a Caller ID with Call Waiting feature that works with service from your local
phone service provider.
Caller ID with Call Waiting lets you see who’s calling before you answer the phone, even when
you’re on another call.
You may need to change your phone service to use this feature. Contact your phone service
provider if:
• You have both Caller ID and Call Waiting, but as separate services (you may need
combined service)
• You have only Caller ID service, or only Call Waiting service
• You don’t subscribe to any Caller ID or Call Waiting services.
You can use this product with regular Caller ID service, and you can use this product’s other
features without subscribing to either Caller ID or combined Caller ID with Call Waiting service.
There are fees for Caller ID services, and they 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 companies use compatible equipment.

TELEPHONE OPERATION
Operating Range
This cordless telephone operates within the maximum power allowed by
the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Even so, this handset and
base can communicate over only a certain distance — which can vary with
the locations of the base and handset, the weather, and the construction of
your home or office. For best performance, keep the base antenna fully
upright.
If you receive a call while you are out of range, the handset might not
ring — or if it does ring, the call might not connect when you press PHONE .
Move closer to the base, then press PHONE to answer the call.
If you move out of range during a phone conversation, you might
hear noise or interference. To improve reception, move closer to the base.
If you move out of range without pressing OFF, your phone will be
left “off the hook.” To hang up properly, walk back into range, periodically
pressing OFF .

BATTERIES
Charge the Handset Battery Pack
• This battery should remain charged up to six days with the ringer turned on and up to
12 days with the ringer off. A fully charged battery provides an average talk time of
about six hours.
• The battery pack needs charging when:
— A new battery is installed in the handset.
— The phone beeps twice every 5 seconds.
— The screen displays BATTERY LOW and the low battery icon.
• Place the handset in the base so the CHARGING light turns on. The battery pack
is typically fully charged in eight hours.
• You can keep the battery fully charged by returning the handset to the base after
each use.
• If you repeatedly get a low battery indicator, even after charging overnight, the
battery should be replaced. Use VTECH Battery.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of fire or injury to persons or damage to the
telephone, read and follow these instructions carefully:
Charge the battery provided with or identified for use with this product only in
accordance with the instructions and limitations specified in this User’s
Manual.
Replacing the Handset Battery Pack
1 Remove the battery compartment cover on the handset by pressing on the indentation
and sliding the cover downward.
2 Lift out the old battery pack and disconnect.
3 Align the two holes in the new battery pack’s plug with the socket pins, and snap the
plug into place. Place the battery pack in the compartment with the wires in the lower
left corner, along the bottom of the battery pack.
4 Replace the cover by sliding it up into place.
5 The new battery pack must be charged before using the phone. Place the handset
in the base and allow it to charge for at least 12 hours the first charge. The
telephone might operate before that, but for best performance, let the battery
pack charge fully.
15
IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY
If you have difficulty operating this phone, try the suggestions below.
For Customer Service, call 1-800-595-9511. Please retain your receipt as your proof of
purchase
If the phone doesn’t work at all, check these items first:
• Make sure the AC adapter is plugged into an outlet not controlled by a wall switch.
• Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged firmly into the base unit and the
modular jack.
• Make sure the base antenna is fully upright.
• If the handset does not beep when you press PHONE, the battery might need
charging.
• Make sure the battery pack is installed correctly.
• If you have dial pulse (rotary) service on your phone line, make sure the dial
mode is set to dial pulse (see INSTALLATION).
• Microwave appliances may cause interference with this phone. If you experience
interference, move away from the microwave
If the above suggestions don’t solve the problem, try re-initializing the handset
and base:
1 Disconnect the power to the base.
2 Remove the handset battery pack.
3 Wait a few minutes.
4 Connect the power to the base.
5 Insert the handset battery pack.
6 Put the handset in the base to re-initialize.
If you hear a two-beep signal when you try to use the handset:
• You might be out of range. Move closer to the base and try again.
• If moving closer to the base doesn’t help, try following the directions above for
re-initializing the handset and base.
If the phone does not ring when you receive a call:
• Make sure the handset ringer is on.
• Make sure the telephone line cord is connected firmly to the base and the
telephone jack.
• Make sure the AC adapter is plugged firmly into an outlet not controlled by a
wall switch.
• You might be too far from the base; move closer.
• You might have too many extension phones on your telephone line to allow all

If you hear noise or interference when using the phone:
• Make sure the base antenna is fully upright.
• You may be out of range. Move closer to the base.
• Press and release PROG/CHAN to change to another of the 30 channels available.
If noise is exceptionally loud, move closer to the base before changing channels.

cause interference. Try moving the appliance or the base to another outlet.
16
IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY
• Using the handset near household appliances (microwaves, computers, television,
stereos, etc.) can sometimes cause interference. Move away from appliances

Maintenance
Taking Care Of Your Telephone
Your GIGAPHONE 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.
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.

notification, you will be informed of your right to file a complaint with the FCC.
Occasionally, your telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment,
operation, or procedures that could affect the operation of your equipment. If so, you will be
given advance notice of the change to give you an opportunity to maintain uninterrupted
service.
