Caller ID
About caller ID
This product supports caller ID services provided by most
local telephone service companies. Depending on your
service subscription, you may see the caller’s number, or
the caller’s name and number that are sent by the
telephone company after the first or second ring.
Caller ID allows you to see the name, number, date and
time of calls.
Information about caller ID with call waiting
DISJT!TNJUI
999.833.8813
NEW
21;12
BN
:036
Caller ID with call waiting lets you see the name and
telephone number of the caller before answering the
telephone, even while on another call.
It may be necessary to change your telephone service to
use this feature. Contact your telephone company 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 companies use
compatible equipment. The time and date are sent by the telephone company
along with the call information.
The caller ID information may not be available for every incoming call. The
callers may intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers. To
view call log entries with numbers between 16 and 23 digits, you must save
the entry to the directory (see page 34). For instructions on viewing the
digits, see the first note on page 26.
NOTE: You can use this product with regular caller ID service, or you can use this
product’s other features without subscribing to either caller ID or combined
caller ID with call waiting service.
29
Caller ID
Caller ID operation
Memory match
If the incoming telephone number exactly matches 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 by your caller ID is in the format
sent by the phone company. The phone company usually
delivers ten-digit phone numbers (area code plus phone
number). If the telephone number of the caller does not
exactly match a number in your directory, the name appears
as it is delivered by the phone company. For example, if the
phone company includes the area code and the directory
number does not, the name appears as delivered by the
phone company.

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, so
changes made using any handset are reflected in all
other handsets. If you answer a call before the
information appears on the screen, it does not show in
the caller ID history.

XX MISSED CALL(S) appears if there are new call log
entries (including missed and unreviewed calls). CALL
LOG EMPTY appears if there are no records in the call
log.
NOTES:
1. Only one handset can review the caller ID history at a time. If another handset
attempts to enter the directory or caller ID history, it shows NOT AVAILABLE AT
THIS TIME.
2. Each entry may have up to 24 digits for the phone numher and 15 characters for
the name. If the phone number has more than 15 digits, only the last 15 digits
appear. For call log entries with numbers between 16 and 23 digits, in order to
view the entire number, you must save the entry to the Directory (page 34). For
instructions on viewing the digits, see the first note on page 26. If the phone
number has more than 24 digits, it is not saved or shown in the call log.

callers might intentionally block their names and/or telephone numbers.

Important safety information
• 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.
