Installation
You must install and charge
the handset battery before
using the cordless handset.
See page 5 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 should be placed on a flat
surface. For optimum range and better reception, place the telephone base in
a central and open location.
You may hear interference if your cellular phone is too close to the
telephone base during a CELLULAR call. Make sure that your Bluetooth
enabled cellular phone is within 15 feet of the telephone base in order to
maintain a clear and consistent connection between your Bluetooth cell
phone, telephone base and cell tower.
If you subscribe to high-speed Internet service (DSL - digital subscriber line)
through your telephone line(s), you must install a DSL filter between each
telephone line cord and telephone wall jack (pages 2-3). 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.

• Communication devices such as television sets, VCRs, or other cordless
telephones.

ovens, refrigerators, or fluorescent lighting.
• Excessive dust sources such as a workshop or garage.

• Extremely low temperature.
• Mechanical vibration or shock such as on top of a washing machine or
work bench.

handset and dialing keys. However, only line 1 is available in the event of a
power failure.

Introducing Bluetooth
Your new AT&T TL86109 telephone system with Bluetooth wireless
technology has the following features:
• Pair up to four Bluetooth enabled devices (cell phones or headsets) with
the telephone base.
• Connect a maximum of two cell phones to make and receive cell calls.
Only one cell phone can be active on a call at a time.
• Connect a Bluetooth enabled headset for making and receiving line 1 or
line 2 calls.
• Conference any combination of cell and line 1 or line 2 calls.
• Make and receive calls using your cell phone plan with your cordless
system handsets.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
• After plugging in the telephone base, wait at least 20 seconds before
connecting a Bluetooth device. The screen shows Bluetooth system busy
if you try to connect too soon.
• Refer to the user's manual of your Bluetooth enabled cell phone or
headset for more information about how that device uses Bluetooth
connectivity.
• Bluetooth wireless technology operates within a short range (up to 30
feet) from the telephone base. Keep connected cell phones and headset
within this range.
• If your cell phone has poor reception in your home, the TL86109 cannot
improve the reception. However, if there is a location in your house with
better reception, you can leave your cell phone at that location while you
use the TL86109 cell line. For optimal performance, the cell phone must
be within 15 feet of the telephone base.
• Charge your cell phone while it is connected to the telephone base.
Your cell phone's battery discharges faster while it is connected to the
telephone base via Bluetooth wireless technology.
• Monitor your cell phone's usage because minutes may be deducted from
your cellular plan for the duration of all cell calls, depending on the terms
of your plan.
