About Caller Identification
Telephone operating range
Caller ID with Call Waiting features in
this telephone lets you see who’s calling before you answer the phone, even
when you’re on another call. These
features require services provided by
your local telephone company.
This cordless telephone operates with
the maximum power allowed by the
Federal Communications Commission
(FCC). Even so, the handset and base
can communicate over only a certain
distance — which can vary with the
locations of the base and handset, the
weather, and the construction of your
home or office.
Contact your telephone service
provider if:
• You have both Caller ID and Call
Waiting, but as separate services
(you may need combined service).
If you receive a call while you are
out of range, the handset might not
ring — or if it does ring, the call might
not connect when you press PHONE.
Move closer to the base, then press
PHONE to answer the call.
• You have only Caller ID service, or
only Call Waiting service.
• You don’t subscribe to any Caller
ID or Call Waiting services.
If you move out of range during a
phone conversation, you might hear
noise or interference. To improve
reception, move closer to the base.
You can use this phone with regular
Caller ID service, and you can use its
other features without subscribing to
either Caller ID or combined Caller ID
with Call Waiting service. There may
be fees for these services, and they
may not be available in all areas.
If you move out of range without
pressing OFF, your phone will be left
off the hook. To hang up properly,
walk back towards the telephone base,
periodically pressing OFF until the call
is disconnected.
Caller ID features will work only if
both you and the caller are in areas
offering Caller ID service, and if both
telephone companies use compatible
equipment.
See Caller ID Operation, beginning on
page 27, for more details about how
these features work.

When the call log is full, the oldest entry is deleted to

About names
Names of callers will be displayed only if this information is
provided by your local telephone company.
If the telephone number of the person calling exactly matches
a number in your directory, the name that appears on the
screen will match the name that you entered into your directory.
(Example: If Christine Smith calls, her name will appear as
Chris if this is how you entered it into your directory.)
NOTE: The phone company usually delivers ten-digit phone numbers,
so if you have to dial a "1" first, or if you only dial seven digits, the name will
appear as delivered by the phone company.

Adding new handsets
Your telephone can accommodate up to four cordless handsets. You can add new handsets (E560-2, sold separately) to the E5655 at any time, but each handset must be registered with the base before use.
The handset provided with your E5655 is automatically registered as Handset 1.
Additional handsets will be assigned numbers in the order they are registered (Handset 2,
Handset 3, or Handset 4). You can register a maximum of 4 handsets.

To locate the Base ID number, press SELECT/MENU on
the base, scroll down to highlight DISPLAY BASE
ID, then press SELECT/MENU. The screen will display
the unique ID code for the system. This number can be
used when adding or replacing handsets.

Troubleshooting
If you have difficulty with your phone, please try the suggestions below. For Customer
Service, visit our web site at www.telephones.att.com, or call 1-800-222-3111.
Problem
Suggestion
Telephone
does not
work at all
•
Make sure battery is installed and charged correctly (see page 7).
•
Make sure the AC adapter is plugged into an outlet not controlled
by a wall switch.
•
Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged firmly into the base
unit and the modular jack.
•
If you have dial-pulse telephone service, make sure the dial mode is
set to pulse (see page 18).
•
Make sure all extension phones are hung up.
•
Disconnect the base from the modular jack and plug in a working
telephone. If this phone does not work, the problem is probably in
your wiring or local service. Call your local telephone service company.
•
If these suggestions do not work, unplug the power to the base,
remove and re-insert the battery, then plug the power back to the
base and place the handset in the base to re-initialize.
•
Make sure the ringer is on (see page 17, 19).
•
Make sure the telephone line cord and AC adapter are plugged in
properly (see page 6).
•
Move the handset closer to the base.
•
You might have too many extension phones on your telephone line
to allow all of them to ring. Try unplugging some of them.
•
You may be out of range. Move closer to the base.
•
Appliances plugged into the same circuit as the base can cause
interference. Try moving the appliance or base to another outlet.
•
The layout of your home or office might be limiting the operating
range. Try moving the base to another location, preferably on an
upper floor.
•
Disconnect the base from the modular jack and plug in a corded
telephone. If calls are still not clear, the problem is probably in your
wiring or local service. Call your local telephone service company.
•
Do you have DSL service? If so, you need to have a DSL filter
installed at every phone jack that has a phone connected to it.
Contact your DSL service provider for filter information.
•
Other nearby cordless telephones can cause interference. Try moving one of the cordless telephone bases.
