your digital answering system, press
/PLAY/STOP
on the telephone base (page 31).
• If
and New voicemail display on the handset, 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.
NOTE: After reviewing all new messages, the number of old messages appears on the
message window.
Using the answering machine 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. Then, if you are on a call,
or if 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.

Troubleshooting
My caller ID isn’t working.
• Caller ID is a subscription service. You must subscribe to this service from your
telephone service provider for this feature to work on your phone.
• The caller may not be calling from an area which supports caller ID.
• Both your and your caller’s telephone service providers must use caller ID
compatible equipment.
• If you subscribe to high-speed Internet service (DSL - digital subscriber line) through
your telephone line, you must install a DSL filter between the telephone line cord
and the telephone wall jack (page 5). The filter prevents noise and caller ID problems
resulting from DSL interference. Please contact your DSL service provider for more
information about DSL filters.
System does not receive caller ID when on a call.
• Make sure you subscribe to caller ID with call waiting features from your telephone
service provider. Caller ID features works only if both you and the caller are
in areas offering caller ID service, and if both telephone service providers use
compatible equipment.
System does not answer after the correct number of rings.
• Make sure that the answering system is on. ANS ON should show on the handset
and the
/ANSWER ON/OFF light on the telephone base should be on.
• If toll saver is activated, the number of rings changes to two when you have new
messages stored (page 27).
• If the memory is full or the system is off, the system will answer after 10 rings.
• In some cases, the answering system is affected by the ringing system used by
your telephone service provider.
• If you subscribe to voicemail service, change the number of rings so
that your answering system answers before your voicemail answers
(page 27). To determine how many rings activate your voicemail, contact your
telephone service provider.
• If there is a fax machine connected to the same telephone line, try disconnecting
the fax machine. If that solves the problem, consult your fax machine
documentation for information on compatibility with answering systems.
I’ve set my LCD language to Spanish or French and I don’t know how to

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 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.
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
The AT&T DECT 6.0 products offer unsurpassed range performance and sound clarity. 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.
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 with equalizer for cuztomized 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. Choose from 4 preset audio profiles. The equalizer feature
allows you to select from profiles that emphasize bass, treble, and natural tones to meet your
individual hearing needs.
Compatible with
Hearing Aid T-Coil
