Congratulations! You have purchased
one of the most sophisticated cordless
telephones on the market! The VT
1921 has been designed to offer a
new standard in cordless telephone
technology.
PAGE key will cause the .handset to
ring in a manner which distinguishes
it from normal incoming ringing. This
can be used to alert the handset user,
or to simply locate the handset in the
event that it is misplaced.
Unlike most other cordless phones,
the VT 1921 digitizes your voice using
advanced ADPCM digital voice coding
to provide noise and distortion free
performance. In most conditions you
will not be able to te!l you are using
a cordless phone. Gone are the
annoyances of static, interference
and having to listen to other people's
conversations on your cordless phone.
The VT 1921 uses special memory in
both the base and handset which is
not susceptible -to power failures.
This provides permanent storage of
a11 memory dial numbers, CID
information as well as the base and
handset security, codes.
The VT 1921 scrambles your voice
before it transmits it. This allows you
the security of knowing that no one
can tune in and eavesdrop on your
conversations.
The VT 1921 decodes and displays
name and/or number Caller ID (CID)
information where available and when
subscribed to. The alpha-numeric
display can show both thename and
number of the calling party. Up to 24
name characters or 11 phone number
digits can be displayed on the LCD.
With the VT 1921, the user can easily
answer a call by pressing any key
otherthan the OFF, MUTEorVOLUME
Keys. In addition, the handset keypad
and LCD illuminate while the handset
rings to signal an incoming call. This
is very useful in a dark environment.
The VT 1921 also provides a oneway PageIFind. Pressing the base
When an optional battery pack is
installed,in the base unit, the VT 1921
uses this battery pack to provide
operational backup in case of power
failure. In this way you have access
to all normal phone functions during a
total power outage. Calls can still be
placed and received without
interruption. More than 5 hours backup
will be possible with a fully charged
battery pack in the base unit.
The VT 1921 informs you that another
extension is currently in use on the
same phone line. The phone.will also
alert you when you are Out of Range,
even when you're not using the phone!

Receiving and,storirig Calls
This unit receives and displays all
CID information,including the caller's
telephone number, the caller's name
and the exact date and time of the call.
The phone sequentially numbers
these call records and retains them in
the unit's CID memory for later review.
These call record numbers are
displayed as the first two digits in the
display. The unit can store up to 50
numbers in its memory.
Once the CID memory is full, any new
call forces a deletion of the oldest call
record.
DIALING FROM CID MEMORY
NOTE:
Only the last 7 digits of any number
are displayed when dialing from CID
For example, when you press and hold
the 7CQkey to view the phone number,
you would see the following:

If for 'any reason the telephone
number of the caller is unavailable, or
if the caller is outside the CID service
area, the message UNAVAILABLE is

ERROR" will be displayed on the
LCD screen.
The occasional appearance of
"TRANSMISSION ERROR" on your
display does not indicate a problem
with your unit or your telephone line.
However, if this appears frequently,
you may want to notify your telephone
company.
Reviewing Numbers
Calls stored in memo
can be
reviewed by pressing CID . The
display will show the number of the
