Getting started
Installation
You must install and
charge the battery before
using the telephone.
STOP!
See page 13 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 (pages 15-16). For optimum range and better
reception, place the telephone base in a central and open location.
If you subscribe to high-speed Internet service (digital subscriber line - DSL)
through your telephone line, you must install a DSL filter between the telephone
line cord and the telephone wall jack (pages 9-10). 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 a washing machine
or workbench.

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 service.
• 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 may not be available for every incoming call. Callers may
intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers. You can only view a
maximum of 15 digits of every caller ID log entry.
NOTE: You can use this product with regular caller ID service, or you can use this product’s
other features without subscribing to caller ID or combined caller ID with call waiting service.
98
Caller ID
Caller ID log
How the caller ID log works
The telephone stores caller ID information about the last 200 incoming calls
in the telephone base, which are shared by all lines (except PC line). 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 the telephone base and cordless handsets, so changes made using a
cordless handset or the telephone base are reflected in all other devices. If
you answer a call before the information appears on the screen, it does not
show in the caller ID log.
NOTE: Each entry may have up to 24 digits for the phone number and 15 characters for
the name.
Missed (new) call indicator
When there are new or missed calls, the cordless handset screen shows
XX Missed calls in idle mode, and the telephone base shows XX in
idle mode.
All new and missed entries are counted as missed calls. Each time you review
a new caller ID log entry (indicated by N E W on the screen), the number of missed
calls decreases by one.
If you do not want to review the missed calls one by one, but still want to keep
them in the caller ID log, you can press and hold OFF/CANCEL on the cordless
handset for four seconds when the handset is idle, or press and hold CANCEL
on the telephone base for four seconds when the telephone base is idle. You
will hear a confirmation tone. All the entries in the caller ID log become old
(reviewed already), and the missed calls message goes away.
NOTE: If there are more than 99 missed calls, the handset screen will show XXX Missed calls.
Memory match
If the incoming telephone number matches the last 7 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 Christine Smith calls, her name appears as Chris if this is how
you entered it into your directory.
NOTE: The number shown in the caller ID log will be in the format sent by the telephone
service provider. The telephone service provider usually delivers ten-digit phone numbers
(area code plus telephone number). If the telephone number of the caller does not match
a number in your directory, the name will appear as it is delivered by the telephone
service provider.

About the answering system
Answering system and voicemail indicators
Your telephone has separate indicators for two different types of voice
messages: those left on its built-in digital answering system and those left in
your service provider’s voicemail (fees may apply). Your telephone’s built-in
digital answering system messages and voicemail messages are separate.
Each alerts you to new messages differently.
•
•
If
and L1) XX New msgs and/or L2) XX New msgs display on the
telephone base and handsets, there are new messages in the built-in
answering system. To listen to messages recorded on your digital answering
system, press
/LINE 1 MAIL BOX or
/LINE 2 MAIL BOX on the
telephone base. To listen to messages with a cordless handset, see To
listen to messages on a cordless handset on page 118.
If
,
, or
, and L1) Voicemail and/or L2) Voicemail display on
telephone base and handsets, 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.
Using the answering system and voicemail together
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. If you are on a call, or 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.

About the answering system
Message capacity
Each answering system (mailbox) can record and store up to 99 messages,
depending on the length of each message. Individual messages can be up to
three minutes (see Message recording time on page 114), and the maximum
recording time is approximately 22 minutes. The actual recording time depends
on individual message characteristics. Messages remain available for replay until
you delete them.
When there are new messages (including memos) on the answering system,
the number of messages stored shows in the message counter.
If the answering system has less than three minutes of recording time left, it
announces, “Less than three minutes to record,” before message playback at
the cordless handset or the telephone base. L1) Rec mem low and/or
L2) Rec mem low display on the device screen in idle mode. When you turn
on the answering system at the telephone base, it announces, “Calls will be
answered. Less than three minutes to record.”
If the memory is full, the answering system announces, “Memory is full,” before
message playback. The device screen displays L1) Rec mem full and/or
L2) Rec mem full in idle mode. Once the memory is full, you cannot turn the
answering system back on if it has been turned off, nor can you record new
messages until old ones have been deleted. Memory full displays if you want
to turn on the answering system on the handset but there is no memory.
Voice prompts
The system provides voice prompts to guide you through the setup procedures
at the telephone base, message playback, remote access and recording
outgoing announcements.
Temporarily turning off the message alert tone
If the message alert tone is turned on, the telephone base beeps every
ten seconds when there are new messages. Pressing any telephone base
key temporarily silences the message alert tone.
The message alert tone resumes when you receive another message.

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 cordless 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 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.
ECO mode
This power conserving technology reduces power consumption for optimal battery performance. The
ECO mode activates automatically whenever the handset is synchronized with the telephone base.
Especially about telephone answering systems
Two-way recording: This unit does not sound warning beeps to inform the other party that the
call is being recorded. To ensure that you are in compliance with any federal or state regulations
regarding recording a telephone call, you should start the recording process, and then inform the
other party that you are recording the conversation.

DECT 6.0 digital technology

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 against similarly equipped phones of
the leading competition. Now calls can be taken in the basement, backyard and garage
with exceptional sound quality. 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.
HD audio
HD audio improves sound quality by expanding and rebuilding frequencies that are lost
with traditional phone calls. There is no additional telephone service requirement to
use HD audio. It is designed to work with standard telephone service. Your system will
automatically enhance all received sound with HD audio.
Simulated full-duplex handset speakerphone
The simulated full-duplex speakerphone on your handset allows both ends of a call to
speak and be heard at the same time. Optimal performance is subject to external factors
and individual usage.
