Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
• Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts,
so you must treat it with care.
• Avoid rough treatment.
• Place the handset down gently.
• Save the original packing materials to protect your telephone if
you ever need to ship it.
Avoid water
• You can damage your telephone if it gets wet. Do not use the
handset in the rain, or handle it with wet hands. Do not install
the telephone base near a sink, bathtub or shower.
Electrical storms
• Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to

using electric appliances during storms.
Cleaning your telephone
• Your telephone has a durable plastic casing that should retain
its luster for many years. Clean it only with a soft cloth slightly
dampened with water or mild soap.
• Do not use excess water or cleaning solvents of any kind.
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used when you
are wet or standing in water. If the telephone base should fall into water, DO
NOT RETRIEVE IT UNTIL YOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE
CORDS FROM THE WALL. Pull the unit out by the unplugged cords.

Safety information
•
Read and understand all instructions in the user’s manual. Observe all markings on
the product.
•
Avoid using a telephone during a thunderstorm. There may be a slight chance of
electric shock from lightning.
•
Do not use a telephone in the vicinity of a gas leak. Under certain circumstances, a
spark may be created when the adapter is plugged into the power outlet, or when
the handset is replaced in its cradle. This is a common event associated with the
closing of any electrical circuit. The user should not plug the phone into a power
outlet, and should not put a charged handset into the cradle, if the phone is located
in an environment containing concentrations of flammable or flame-supporting
gases, unless there is adequate ventilation. A spark in such an environment could
create a fire or explosion. Such environments might include: medical use of oxygen
without adequate ventilation; industrial gases (cleaning solvents; gasoline vapors;
etc.); a leak of natural gas; etc.
•
Do not use this product near water, or when you are wet. For example, do not use it
in a wet basement or shower, or next to a swimming pool, bathtub, kitchen sink, or
laundry tub. Do not use liquids or aerosol sprays for cleaning. If the product comes
in contact with any liquid, unplug any line or power cord immediately. Do not plug
the product back in until it has dried thoroughly.
•
Install this product in a protected location where no one can trip over any line or
power cords. Protect cords from damage or abrasion.
•
If this product does not operate normally, see the Troubleshooting section on
pages 11-18 of this user’s manual. If you cannot solve the problem, or if the
product is damaged, refer to the Limited warranty section pages 26-28. Do not

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 nickelmetal 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.

Important safety information
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
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 noisefiltering 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
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
